Overall Reviews at Bell

Great job, great people but lots of sacrifices
Be prepared to always work on week-ends, thursday and friday nights to begin with, as most of the work hours are given at that time. The job is fun and diverse though, your get your car at home after a while and management is quite nice. Lots of autonomy but you need to be efficient enough and find creative ways to get the job done. It's a pain in the winter, but in the summer it's a real joy. Possibilities to grow in the company vary from time to time, it can be fast for someone and very long for others. Salary is cheap to begin if you don't have a diploma, but goes up quickly. I would definitely recommend it.

Horrible and stressful
I've been employed for almost 2 yrs. I had to beg the company to give me my vacation, the management is horrible, you're never getting a full 80 hours pay. The shift system is horrible, you would be at work and get marked absent. No fun at all just stare at your computer all day, can't even talk to your peers. Bell is all about gaining new customers and care less about their slaves (employees).
ConsHorrible shifts, short hours, unapproved vacation
Substitute Teacher | New York State | Sep 6, 2018
I just had worked as a substitute teacher at this school.
The school environment was warm like family and productive. I have learned a lot from this school such as classroom management, their academic contents, staff cooperation. It was really good experience for me. After those periods, I could work productively at different charter schools such as at Lighthouse Academy in Bronx, and Global Community Charter school in Manhattan.

I hated working at Bell
Working for Bell was bad. The pay was low, the call center was trashy. The chairs were practically falling when I worked there. They pushed sales very hard. So much so, even if you reseloved the customers issue and they loved you for it, if you didn't sell or get them to upgrade their service, they considered it a fail. I worked there for 3 months and I quit.
ConsForced sales, meat grinder call center

Always challenged to be better and think different
The industry is always evolving and can be challenging to stay ahead of curve to beat the competition.
Not enough hours in a day to get the work done, so sometimes need some overtime.

Fun and Learn
Bell mobility has a very professional environment at the same time, the team in the Atlantic region was most fun to work with. Apart from technical challenges all in all it was experience of a lifetime at Bell that I will never forget. The utmost respect and support I received from my peers and leaders is second to none.

Collaborative and Engaging Youth, made it an overall good experience.
A typical day was creating a curriculum, work plans, and daily training to aid in supporting the needs of the scholars. The balance of keeping the scholars engaged while learning and life skills are instituted and enforced to maintain a culture of excellence.
ProsScholars, Staff, Service

Call Center Representative | Charlestown, RI | Mar 2, 2019
Have a lounge where we watch tv and play games.
With the right company the work place is very fun. Many give aways and bonuses. Fairly good salary however, with the type of work we do at Bell I personally feel that adding on an addition 2 or 3 dollars would be much better and worth it.
ProsGive aways and bonus
