Sales Associate (Ancien employé) – St. John's, NL – 29 janvier 2019
The benefits were good (I worked there before they got rid of the free cell phone line for employees) and the pay was alright if you knew anything about sales, but maybe one of the worst jobs I've ever had. They talk a lot about the sales people being crucial and important, but are quick to remind you that you can replaced at the drop of a hat. Some stores the staff will try and steal your sales and they will force you to cold call people to sell stuff. You'll be encouraged to work through your breaks because time on the floor means more chance for a sale and sales targets are constantly raised regardless of circumstances. One time they sent an email from my work account to the government so they could pressure them into keeping their monopoly then signed my name to it.
Some good benefits

Small Business Account Manager (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 5 septembre 2019
I really enjoyed my career at Bell as it gave me excellent work/life balance. The most I enjoyed was flexible work hours, managers helped out during my travel to other countries as a Volunteer. The base salary initially was low but they made it up to par with in-market sales salaries. The commission structure was excellent. I loved and enjoyed the benefits including the RRSP, extended health, and dental coverage, Bell share matching by the company, life insurance and so on. The one thing which I think needed improvement was that taking the vacation was mandatory and even during vacations and sick days your targets were valid and had to be accomplished before or upon return,
