    I worked at Bell Canada full-time

    Pros

    Benefits after probation period
    Good pay if you're willing to work hard
    Incentives and spiffs
    iPhone 5C

    Cons

    Annoying people to buy something they don't really need.
    Getting brainwashed by an unethical company.
    Working with money hungry and greedy people
    Even tho they say no supervision, the manager actually follows and checks up without you knowing
    Work from mondays to SATURDAYS 12-8:30 (sometimes you clock out 10pm depends)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team more rather than throwing up spiffs and incentives to help. Just try to figure out what they're doing wrong. Money isn't the only thing that encourages everyone.

    I have been working at Bell Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits and somehow good compensation. If you like a hardcore sales environment I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    Bell in Western Canada is not a good nor a healthy place to work at. Very poor life-Work balance, Salary is considered the lowest on the market for account manager positions/ Sales Positions. Managers tends to be somehow racists and sexists.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to undergo more rigorous development. Allocate more resources towards recruitment, employee development and retention. Also, managers need to undergo an extensive management training.
