Direct Banking Manager (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC27 February 2014
A typical day consists of answering 11-12 phone calls per hour from customers who are either seeking information, making financial/non-financial transaction, adhering to new services/products, and any other inquiries. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely the interaction with teammates and other colleagues. Co-workers were always very helpful and social. The most difficult part is the high stress level caused by ever climbing sales objectives, as well as the lack of freedom regarding one's login time on the telephone. Being monitored at all times can lend a higher level of stress that necessary to accomplish one's goals. This position allowed me to learn how to work under pressure, but also how to work as a team. Sharing information and helping each other out became a daily routine with strengthened us.
Pros
Great colleagues and team environment.
Cons
High stress level, not enough employees to handle volume of customers.

Pays well, unfortunately very difficult environment. Working from home time to time is ok but not more than once a week. Looks like people mostly get in because of their connections. Especially 2 nationalities are main group in BMO IT.

Caissier/principale (Current Employee) –  Lebourgneuf14 February 2018
Je veux travailler à temps temps partiel, en me rapprochant du travail. Je prendrais ma pré-retraite de la BMO. Après 38 ans de loyaux services, la pression de vente ne me convient pas.
Pros
Contact clients
Cons
Le poste a évolué (rapport de vente de produits)
