No structure or support for the Mortgage Development Manager Position
Mortgage Development Manager (Former Employee) – Eastern Ontario – July 3, 2013
National Bank is developing a revolving door for their Mortgage Development Manager position. There is little training, no support from Management to resolve issues, poor equipment, and non-competitive compensation. I would recommend you look to a more established financial institution to avoid the daily problems at National Bank.
friendly, relaxed atmosphere in the branch.
frequent equipment failures, conflicting lending guidelines and policies, low compensation, claw backs in the compensation program

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.

You get to work and you need to catch up on any existing changes. Everything is constantly changing in the banking industry. You then complete customer demands, meet with them and try to identify their needs and offering them the appropriate solutions.
Great for getting experience and applying it elsewhere
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montreal, Canada – July 29, 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 – June 22, 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
very bad management team at Retail Credit Center in Mississauga

The managers focus on making your life difficult You have to explain bathroom breaks to them. In last few years they turned the place into real sweat-shop They micromanage you. They care only how to make your life miserable. They have no other focus. Everyone with brains left or is looking for another job.
