Human Resources - Corporate Facilitator (Current Employee) – Calgary, Ab – 21 January 2015
working with First Calgary Financial is a great opportunity to meet new people and be very social which I find the most rewarding. Being with the company for almost 8 years, I have learned a lot not only on the professional level but also personal. I have liked most of my managers, but I also found some of them to be less competent than the others, I have had great people that I have worked with and always tried to make the best of all my work relationships. The hardest part of the job is the lack of recognition for the hard work that you do and being unfairly compared to others instead of recognizing the individual approach. The most enjoyable part of my job is being with people, helping them and seeing success in their everyday work :)
micro management / poor management/ not professional

The most enjoyable part of the job is serving the customers. The hardest part of the job is sitting idol with no customers. I prefer to work in a fast pace enviroment with structure and attainable goals A typical day is doing nothing, sitting around. Business is not good My co-workers are not professional in comparison to other Financial Institutions.

The experience I went through at First Calgary Financial was very enjoyable. Everyday at work we would learn something new and innovative idea's would be taken into consideration. I didn't feel like I worked for someone yet, felt that I am part of the organization it self. That itself demonstrates the value they hold for their employee's.

Not sure where or how they are hiring or training their branch managers but most of them do not have a heart. They are not leaders but old fashioned managers who do not care about the staff that they manage. Depending on the branch and the manager it can be a great place to work. It can be fun and challenging all at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with people/members as they can become like family.
not enough training, mortgages none or for business loans
