Retail banking
Financial Service Representative II, CIBC (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON23 May 2017
Most people in retail banking want to get out. It's stressful and you receive mixed messaging from management. You are treated as a client in opposed to a worker. They work hard to sell their staff on the benefits of their products while never talking about what is competitive advantages.

Great Office Environment, Supportive staff, Great and Fun training, community events.
Universal Banker/ FSR II (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK13 May 2017
Day start with routine activities and safety and security procedures. Following by staff meeting int he morning where we have to discuss about how the day should look like also how the previous day was.

countless things to learn. Interest with clients on daily basis where you understand what client is facing on their financial life. Different culture and different language gives little insight of different parts of the world.

The best thing is, CIBC provides you with great knowledge and experience in such short time which would give you enough strength to help clients to improve their financial situation.
