Pros: benefits start from day one of your training
Cons: infinite amount read notes
CSR - Mississauga/Meadowvale
- They mislead you in the interview process by not disclosing the primary duty which is selling and the inflated prospects of moving up within the broad BMO organization.
- For those considering this position as an entry into the BMO organization for the purpose of upgrading to a more substantial position within the organization. There is chance to move within the building but very little if you seek a more substantial role within the broad BMO organization e.g. downtown Toronto office
- Ridiculous sales/call targets
- Irrational measuring practices to evaluate your performance.
- Pettiness, extreme politics and combined with inflated egos/false sense of authority creates a toxic work environment
- Majority of employees are extremely unhappy
- Poor management - very unprofessional, disrespectful, poorly trained and not qualified to be in their position.
- Many significant roles are outside hires from different organizations which can be deflating to those long tenured employees seeking to "work their way up the ladder"
- No work life balance
- Dead end job and not a career
- Bait and switch - first 3weeks in training they're really welcoming, nice, provide snacks but reality sinks in after that.
- Full benefits start from day one of your training
- If you're looking for an immediate short term paycheck this may be adequate but long term employment, in my opinion would be a mistake
- Most fellow employees(non-management) were very nice, smart and capable. Actually, there was a lot of very talented, loyal and hard working people there but evaluators(management) very incompetent and not able to recognize talent. Thus the high turnover.
