Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 17 November 2017
Even though I preferred working in a bank compared to working in stores, I definitely did not want to pursue a career in the bank industry for two reasons : 1- it was not in relation to my studies 2- the stress of achieving quotas at the end of the year is annoying, especially if you have a bad manager.

CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Ontario – 20 June 2017
Most positions in flux outside of investment advisors. A year or two from now the roster of positions will likely look a lot different as this bank along with most other banks transition to a more modern blueprint.
Extreme favoritism, lack of enthusiasm by management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ontario – 5 April 2017
If you are not in "the clique" you are bullied by management and co-workers. Staff were in a constant battle with each other to exceed but ...again...if you were not the "in" group management made it hard for you because they gave the favourite(s) the optimum job that would guarantee their goals were met thus making it difficult to impossible for all to meet goals. When confronted with this they absolutely refused they were doing this. This attitude caused high staff turnover and management still refusing to re-think their strategies. Bullying in such a passive aggressive manner caused extreme frustration. Eye rolling, whispering and lack of friendliness amongst staff is a daily stressor.
Discounts on products and services.
Favoritism, lack of support, pit team workers against each other...

Front Line Advisor/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 June 2016
I love working at the National Bank, one of the main thing about working here is that everything is manual that way you are learning much more rather than just punching numbers. I have learned alot from this work experience in terms of customer service and doing it right the first time. Management and co-workers are very friendly and motivated in terms of sales and being diverse. The most hardest part of this job is since there are not many branches in Ontario it is very hard to grow within the organization.

Typical day at work is customer service and administrative work or filing when no clients. Learn everyday if you work the Financial Advisers in your free time or when not busy. Team work is key and a good family atmosphere.
Great for getting experience and applying it elsewhere
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montreal, Canada – 29 July 2015
The bank is very stable generating millions of dollars in profit on a yearly basis. They take good care of their main share holders and the people who bring significant amounts of money on a regular basis. On the other hand they disregard their employees. Basically, they overwork you for the least they can pay you. You would have no appreciation for your work or your effort.
Long hours, non supportive superiors, very stressful
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 22 June 2015
A typical day at work was usually me serving clients and trying to get them to buy products from the national bank. I learned great skills in the sales department, I learned to work independently, I learned to be quick on my feet and solve problems as fast as possible and I learned how to work effectively as a team. The hardest part of my job was learning how to make a sale when the client was stubborn. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with clients and meeting new people
