If you have more than two brain cells in your head, save yoursef the agony.
Currency Trader (Former Employee), Calgary – February 18, 2015
Pros: realized that my moral compass was operating at full capacity
Cons: realized that the concept of a moral compass was something foreign to most
Management is disrespectful, combative and extremely egotistical. Complaints of ANY kind against the favored are met with arrogance, hostility and finger pointing in your direction. Staff turnover is extreme – more... and many qualified people have left in frustration due to managements inability to see the forest for the trees.
This particular department does a great job of selling itself, however, it doesn't take long to figure out that it's a den of snakes.
Not sure what kind of ceremony can be performed to excise the demons that dwell there. – less
Transfer Team Specialist (Former Employee), calgary, ab – October 1, 2014
Cons: long hours, horrible pay, staff abuse
This company was the worst I have ever seen when it comes to pay and being treated with dignity. Transfer team management was horribly trained and had no idea how to train anyone under her. There is no – more... training provided aside from telling you to read a binder, also who was put as lead is even worse. On the surface you would think wow, but this company is poorly run. I would never recommend anyone to work here or invest their money in this company. When staff is that poorly trained how could you possibly trust them with large sums of money? – less
Mortgage Data Administrator (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – April 22, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: not good staff
They were ok with trying to learn my disability, but when it came to training they were horrible at it, I was very confused on the mortgages. and I did not understand a thing in meeting and I asked but they told me the exact same thing look in the manual. and hiring me staff was a big problem for them thy dont know how to hire the right staff for the job.
Coordinator (Former Employee), Calgary – December 6, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: clicky management and culture
The culture sure looks good on the surface but don't be fooled, it is a very clicky group, the management/supervisor team are all friends and needless to say, someone of them have no business being in – more... management, people get prompted based on whether they are liked by the management team versus their merits. In the time I was there, they must have fired at least 5-10 people for no good reason if you ask me. It felt like a cult in there and you almost need to kiss up to people and god forbid you didn't stroke someone's ego who happened to be in management or friends with them, then you best to start looking for a new job because it is only a matter of time before they let you go. There are good people there but unfortunately it is hard to tell who is real or who isn't. Definitely not the great company they make themselves out to be. I have worked for smaller and larger companies are have a much better culture and where your performance is actually based on your performance and personality and not whether you are friends with the management team or not... – less
Productive and enjoyable place, where they stuck to their motto.
File Clerk (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – October 17, 2012
Pros: lunch breaks, my hours, the pay, management.
Cons: the job was only contracted till october 12th
A typical day at work at Olympia was always enjoyable. I learned how to work in a wonderful, organized and professional work force. The management was wonderful when it came to any situation where i was – more... in need of some assistance. My co-workers made me feel as if i wasn't just a recent High School graduate but an employee all the same. I would say that there was never a moment of my employment there that was challenging. The most enjoyable would be hoe welcoming the employees were there and the fact that, although it was only a contract job, i felt like family there. – less
