Love to overwork the service team(tellers,ABM). OLD System
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Alberta19 February 2017
Try to turn CSR's into FSR and then have line ups to the door.. if it was more of a team work environment it would be a much better place to work. Instead have to many sales rep and not enough tellers. Very excessive targets. Turn walk in appointments away to make cold calls. Hire inexperienced people causing huge mistakes.
Pros
3 weeks vacation
Cons
Overworked, low salary, heavy targets, cuts in staff, old system.

Easy going company, but too slow for intellects
Senior Director, Credit Risk, Internal Audit (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 February 2017
Fun place to work if you want to be dictated by legacy systems and achieve virtually nothing during the year. That said, it was very stress free due to the slow pace of business.

Not a great experience
CUSTOMER SERCICE REP (Former Employee) –  Summerside, PE17 February 2017
I worked at CIBC a few years ago now and, although the experience with somewhat educational, I still did not enjoy working at this location. I found management was not dedicated to proper training and understanding of their employees when first hired on. I'm sure there are worse places to work then this bank, but I personally wouldn't want to experience it again.
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
bad management, grumpy co-workers

Typical retail sales environment.
Financial Services Representative (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 February 2017
Ok compensation but unpaid overtime hours and unrealistic sales expectations are draining. Management is usually under pressure to pressure the sales staff to pressure clients to buy products they don't really need. This often results in frustrated and abusive managers. Software is painfully outdated with three to four programs needed just to open a chequing account for a client. Opening a mutual fund is unnecessarily complex and disclosures that should be part of the paperwork aren't included, though they are at competitors. The bank is also over-leveraged with its lending so giving a loan to someone is nearly impossible. Where it is possible, TD and RBC will be able to offer a more competitive rate and clients will let you know this.

Clients and colleagues generally make the role worthwhile but nothing else does.
Pros
Great Colleagues
Cons
Long Hours, Management culture varies from branch to branch
