Poor management, stressful not recommended, pay salary low
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), OntarioOctober 4, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: long hours with no pay for overtime, very stressful enviroment at all levels of bmo
Bmo has proven to be a company which only cares about their bottom line in revenue.
Do not care for about how their decisions will affect their staff of many loyal years and their livlihoods.
Would not recommend anyone to work for Bmo as the company expect lots of overtime for no pay, very stressful enviroment. Bank deserve a union to step in to protect – more... the rights of the staff of Bmo.
As far as customer service their business decisions will definitely affect the clients as they pay more service charges,have less staff to serve the clients. – less

micro management is the word!
FSM (Former Employee), Edmonton ABSeptember 23, 2013
Cons: extended hours, micro-management, horrible morale as everyone is fearful of keeping their jobs
revenue, revenue, revenue! that is all that matters to the management (senior level and at branch level).
I used to pride myself on my customer service skills, however you have to report everyday (sometimes 3x/day) how many outbound calls made, how many appts booked, how many sales booked/appt. etc........
Great place to work if you are a shark or an – more... aspiring "used car salesman" – less

Edmonton now healing
Financial Services Manager (Current Employee), EdmontonJuly 8, 2013
Pros: not many customers at my branch
Cons: lousy morale. no sr leadership vision
Our boss says that things should improve in edmonton as they got rid of the VP and that things should be better now with no VP. Im not sure but maybe as in 3 years here i never seen or met the vp anyways! Manager says at least no more intimidation, yelling and lack of support for Fsm's and CSRs, for being the worst in the country.

We work hard but – more... are always criticized for being the worst bank, lousy productive, and it is tough to work every day for an organization where the president to the vp to the Pbm to the manager and staff are ALWAYS critical and negative that all we do is not as good as TD OR ROYAL OR SCOTIA and its OUR fault for being so lousy.

The culture we hear at every meeting is: BMO is worst bank on many measures and its the staffs fault as we are lazy, stupid and dragging the bank down????

Everyone at our branch is set to quit or look at unionizing so that we can be treated Better! I don't want to work here anymore and don't recommend you do either! – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, First Canadian PlaceSeptember 19, 2012
Pros: supporting the directors.
Cons: being managed by someone who shouldn't be managing anyone.
Contract job through an agency. Worked in the mergers and acquisitions department. Administrative support to 5 directors and 2 managing directors - they were great. The office manager was nasty, mean and shouldn't have a job managing anyone.

When I was interviewed for the job, I asked questions - what are your expectations of the person knowing their – more... job in full? 6 months just for the basics. 6 days after my poor training, I started to experience the wrath of this person. After a confrontation on the phone with her, I left that day and never returned.

Very poor manager. No one should be treated that way in a job. – less
