Pros: Free lunches and events
Working with the I.T. department let me get a taste of the overall experience of the CIBC main office.
The people were fantastic and welcoming. Minus the occasional two-faced nature of some people who send up complaints after giving you a friendly face.
I was able to participate in potlucks, meet different fields of management, and experience other peoples' points of view all in an afternoon.
The work itself was fairly simple:
- Setup PC through imaging
- Setup desk with said PC
- Fix peoples' hardware/software issues
- Take down PCs from terminated users
The hours were wonderful as well, 8am-4pm or 9am-5pm. There was a lot of opportunity for overtime work. In the end of the day, there was plenty of freedom and I would work there again if they would have me.
