Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 March 2017
I worked here with one of the Financial advisors, my dad to day would be to make sure deals were closing on time ie. mortgages, Loans and so on. this was a great workplace everyone was friendly and helpful, prior to this position i was a bank teller with CIBC and then got promoted on the Imperial Service side.
A day as a financial advisor for CIBC is filled with about 3-5 appointments with clients and about 1-2h of calling clients from our list. We also spend time working on pending client files, greeting clients in the lobby and filling out various paper work. The hardest part of my job is the sales part. I'm always close to the weekly sales objective, but never surpass it. The things I like the most is helping out clients in need of advise with their finances. I also enjoy working with my co-workers.
Benefits, salary, client contact, great co-workers
No overtime, sales objectives, call and talk to 35 clients a week to try and book appointments
Depending on branch and management, could be a decent place to work
Financial Service Representative (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON, Kekowna BC – 9 March 2017
I worked in various locations and jobs in my almost 10 years at CIBC. In the end the fit just wasn't right fort me Had a lot of great managers and great staff to work with, but again depending on who your immediate manager is, you could feel lack of support.
I enjoy working at CIBC. Just like every job there are pros and cons. One of the pros is that the management team is very easy going and is extremely understanding and helpful.
Cons include a lot of rules. For example my office can't print anymore papers? I can't save documents to my computer, I'm forced to email them to myself everyday. Everything is calculated by the minute, wether you are on the phone, off the phone, in the bathroom, getting water, its all calculated in percentages.
