The ability to make minimum wage is never ideal, however, commission does make up for it. A typical day involves a lot of product reviewing (as the industry changes constantly) and guiding customers along their purchase as they come into the store.
A good chunk of what you make in commission can be based on if your location is busy or not, however, every slow location can be made decent if you can make a sale.
It is a very sales orientated, target driven company as is any other sales organization.
If you are looking to get into the company, read sales books, job shadow the tops sales reps and emulate them at the beginning until you find your own comfort zone.
Work evenings and weekends if you want to make high commission. Much less foot traffic during the day (for the most part).
They will move good sales reps to better locations if they can prove themselves.
The ability to move up is easy if you are patient enough and can hit your targets consistently. Even manager in each location was once a sales rep.
Commission, discounts on everything
Targets constantly increase as you head towards the end of the year, January through March can be brutal commission wise
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,
