Bank of Montreal was a fun place to work. I worked hard each day but enjoyed what I did.
Executive Assistant to V.P. and S.V.P (Former Employee), Montréal, QCNovember 17, 2014
Pros: free banking, good benefits
Cons: alot of staff turnover towards the end, people retiring, new hirees, alot of change.
I worked for BMO for 31 years and of course within that time, changes happen. When I did retire it was a great place to work and offered the younger generation security. Of course you had to work hard to earn this. My performance reviews were always above average ratings as I believe we need to like what we do to be happy and happy employees mean success, – more... no matter what way you look at it. – less

BANK TELLER (Current Employee), Scarborough, ONNovember 13, 2014
Amazing place to work, clients are usually very friendly and coworkers are always willing to help, Its a slightly harder job to manage if you are a student still in school. The average work week may take up most of your time.

Bank Teller (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONOctober 17, 2014
A typical day at work was normal. I learned how to deal with difficult customers. My management was supportive of their staff and my co-workers were pleasant to work with and there to help if needed. The hardest part of the job was the end of the month when all the welfare and pension cheques came in, it was extremely busy.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Richmond, BCOctober 13, 2014
Pros: professional management, great benefits, great culture, great co-workers.
Cons: n/a
Bank of Montreal is one of the best banks I've worked for. Managements are professional, friendly and have lots of patience training new recruits like myself. I would definitely suggest anyone to work in the financial industry to consider Bank of Montreal as their priority employer. My co-workers are friendly, and I learn about daily banking through – more... shadowing the senior CSR. The hardest part of the job is getting use to the computer system if you have never been a customer service representative. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you have helped every customer's needs and working with my co-workers. – less

Ultra productive company that looks out for their workers
Temporary Contract (Former Employee), Montréal, QCSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: great benefits & initial salary.
Cons: contractual work, a little mundane
Data entry was entrusted to you, having no one looking over your shoulder so long as you were not making mistakes and completing your daily workload. Very quick to dish out overtime while giving you the option to reject it if you had prior engagements.

The free mandatory bank accounts was a nice bonus, too.

Financial Services Manager/ Small Business Banker (Former Employee), OntarioSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: pay/benefits
Cons: no advancement/ you are depending on someone else's choices
Your efforts are not appreciated; there is no advancement opportunity-all comes down to Head Office and VP annual financial goals and programs they decide to implement or close.

Very disappointing experience

Terrible Management
FSM (Former Employee), AlbertaSeptember 22, 2014
Bank of Montreal USED to be a great place to work. They are so revenue focused that they have forgotten about the customers. The management as a whole is terrible. The Regional vice presidents are a joke. Pay is very low compared to other Financial institutions. So glad that I was able to get out!!!
