Operations System Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – January 28, 2016
I was only there for four months as a summer student, but it was amazing! The culture was great and everyone was so friendly and willing to help. The company set up lots of opportunities to meet people and connect with other people in the company as well as people higher in management positions. Would love to go back to RBC!

Banking Advisor - Outbound (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – February 28, 2015
A typical day at work would be starting getting all your systems ready on the computer to proactively contact existing RBC clients(the automated dailer makes the calls). Discuss clients financial goals, spot opportunities, up selling, making referrals to other colleges when needed.
Management is great, always supportive. Co-workers(probably will depends on your team, however an overall review would be that they a pretty good).
The hardest part I would say would be that time to time you may not have a good day or maybe calls coming one after another, so it could be draining sometimes.
Most enjoyable part will be team outings, every quarter every team will go out (for example in the last 2 hours of your shift on a Friday or something) for dinner or karaoke and stuff.
Commercial Sales Service Representative (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – February 7, 2015
Royal Bank of Canada is a great financial institution where the main focus are to help our clients and communities build a better future. I try to give each client the best service possible to make sure they leave the facility with a smile. Since my two years of work, I have invested my time in delivering quality products and services as well as making a difference in the communities that I serve. My shared values of service, teamwork, responsibility, diversity and integrity help me guide my behaviors and decisions toward the well-being of my clients. Everyday you face different situations concerning financial problems, administrative tasks as well as responsibilities, which help me gain professional skills.
The best part of the job would probably be creating a relationship with clients and knowing that they trust you to make the best decision for them and their financial future. It is all about trust and loyalty.
Teamwork is extremely important for the reason that I have been a basketball player all my life and being part of a team with different personalities is always overwhelming. However, if you know how to interact and manage those diverse personalities you get something great. It is easier and more fun to work in a teamwork environment. Also, you not only learn from them but learn from yourself as well. In other words, how you manage certain situations and conflicts as well as how you can communicate and fix those issues.
Overall, it has been a great experience so far to be part of the Royal Bank of Canada team but I am now looking for new challenges where I can getmore... more responsibilities as well as gain professional experience and skills.less

Vice President (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – January 20, 2015
The pay is exceptional, but so are the sacrifices you need to make in order to work on the trading floor. Long hours, lots of politics, and higher stress environment. Typically a learn as you go environment, but they do pay for industry courses such as your CSC and CFA.
Overall it can be very rewarding financially if you put your career and competition first.
