Stressful work environment but good gratification from clients.
Team Lead, Paper Payment and Operations (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONOctober 18, 2013
On a typical work day I would received email and phone messages from clients requesting various types of information. For example, regarding the previous day's submission of deposits due to balancing discrepancies, which must be resolved within 24 hours.

I also had to resolve staff issues, train new staff members, provide backup information to other internal departments and open and close accounts as required on a daily basis.

The hardest part of my job was at the end of the month, when all revenue and expenses had to be in on the first business day of the new month. More often than not, all the required information was not forwarded within a timely manner.

The most enjoyable part of my job was resolving a clients issues and hearing the gratitude in their voice and hearing them say that they appreciate the work I had done to help them.
Pros
great co-worker, good compensation/ benefits, rewarding work.
Cons
stressful, inconsiderate manager, a dictatorship, micro manager

Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BCOctober 23, 2015
Worked there for 15 years. At first it seemed like a great company and the hr department was very well run. Then over time new hr management came in place and the entire company started to go downhill. The company itself is struggling to stay relevant as credit unions merge and become bigger they are in less need of Central 1. I don't see this company lasting much more than a few more years. They have already outsourced their pension and benefits department, closed down central risk insurance division and most employees are concerned for their future jobs.
Pros
Hours of work
Cons
Human Resources Department is not well liked

You have responsibility without authority
Get told to do different things by different people
Minimal assistance
Complete chaos
First thing you hear every monday is, "Is it Friday yet?"
Horrendous work place.
