Personal Banking Officer, Toronto, ON - September 20, 2015
I almost feel bad for people who decide to switch from a bank to a CU. Unfortunately we just don't have the same technology and infrastructure to compete in the evolving retail banking market. It seems like with Alterna that too many mergers and system upgrades have turned this company into a confused and inefficient place to bank and work. I don't know many people in retail finance who are satisfied with their work and look forward to coming into the office everyday, there is no exception here with Alterna. Management pressures and bullies employees into ranking them higher than they deserve on their employee surveys but most people will tell you that they don't really like working here. If you are considering taking a job with Alterna I would recommend that you work somewhere else if you have a choice. And switch to a different career if you are considering retail banking. Good luck.
