    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Bell Canada part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Bell Canada at the retail sales level, you get the opportunity to have all the benefits that the head office guys do (even more so with getting a corporate phone for advocate programs and also 5GB of free data for one line! And 35% off Bell services) But that isn't the best part!

    I work at Bell because the compensation is great. Compensation like any other sales job is reflected based on your performance. You get paid an hourly rate and every 6months you get a performance review which means you either get a bump in pay or stay at the same. The better you perform the more money you earn. Bell also rewards the top performers almost every single.month with an incentive, either free tickets to a sports game like the raptors or the leafs or they give you other monetary rewards for performing well. So, in all, the rewards are great and you get recognized for your performance.

    Cons

    Bell is such a big company and has an image to uphold to their customers, the only downside is see for myself in this position as a retail sales associate is the fact that if I wanted to be proactive about seeking more sales outside of my store, for example, handing out flyers or cold calling potential customers, I must get approval from the higher ups, which could take at least a week. So if you're driven, you may not want to wait that long to take action.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive when it comes to training newbies who are new to the industry or to sales, retail, or customer service in general.
