Actually I learned a lot through working at CIBC I used to take over 100 calls per day and support customer service and financial advices and recommendations and deal with different clients from different backgrounds,cultures, ages and accents which give me and excellent communication skills and experience to handle and solve problems and answer clients questions and inquiries and achieve my sales target as well.

Data Management and Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 March 2017
A lot of internal politics, rather than working people harass each other, and the management doesn't do a good job keeping it under control. Not just internal, but also they try to bring in diversity, yet the whole place feels unprofessional, people screaming very unprofessionally, team leaders yell at group members trying to emberass in front of everyone when mistakes are made. Oh and training programs are the worst.

During the period of time working in CIBC I learned working is not just about getting work done, work can be done in many different ways, how to get work done is not only self accomplishment, but also about acknowledge and appreciate everyone involved.

Have a good life work balance; nice team and good management. You will have a lot of fun working in Trust Team of CIBC Mellon and managers are kind and considerate. Though salary will not be that high.
Inventory Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 March 2017
A typical day at work:
start at designated time swipe in check emails heavy work load - can be handled, good coordination skills needed, and task tracking skills, talks to multiple stakeholders to get things done. repeated and planned followup is needed to see things through the good thing is they provide the tools to do so.
Extremely security oriented so initially things like no in-office pics seem strange but I got adapted soon to the culture.
And process change is tough due to the security rigidity, trying out things on software side is a big no no. So if you are an IT geek wanting to drive change, - changes are mostly top down so you may not enjoy it. The pros of this is that changes are handled well and least amount of stress across organization.
But if you love operations then it is the place to be, lots of interaction with people and work. And when you are done for the day you go home satisfied and sleep well without worrying about the next day.

I love my job here. The clients are amazing, and so is my manager. The benefits package is also really great. However, I cannot give a higher rating due to the fact that the salary is so low. I can barely afford to eat, but it takes up just enough of my time that having another job is hardly an option. In addition to this, it really feels like the higher management (other than my two direct managers) really do not care about their employees. There is no option for more hours at the branch I work at (without getting in trouble). Overall, it's an amazing place to work if you don't actually need the money.
Not so much fun working with this company as the increase per year is only a dime. no kidding
Branch Ambassador (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 13 March 2017
With the fast inflation of living expense, wage increase is pitiful with a dime increase, how can you save any penny for my retirement. I might have been more aggressive with my sale tactics if the increase is not that low, can't even buy me a lollipop.

This is where I learned a lot of my skills in the Banking aspect when I started.I was there full time. Unfortunately I had to leave sooner from here as there was a manager conflict going on with numerous employees.
