Providing the right advice to every client is what makes you appreciate the work you do.
Client Advisor (Former Employee), Strathroy, ONFebruary 8, 2015
Pros: great employee discounts
Cons: scheduling
A typical day at work would be providing clients with the necessary advice to achieve their everyday banking needs.

Cashing cheques, paying bills, receiving and cashing out, preparing drafts, etc.

I learned how to be creative and be extremely analytical of a clients profile and provide the correct advice that will guide their financial portfolio to the best suited situation.

management is great, and supportive. Guiding and providing the necessary tools to help their employees succeed.

Co-workers are fun and energetic and help you whenever the help is needed.

The hardest part of the job is making sure to keep knowledge of the products and policies of the financial sector.

The most enjoyable part of this job was providing clients with the right advice and knowing the client is walking out satisfied with the service that I provided to help them achieve their financial goal.

not what it used to be
Credit Fulfillment Officer (Former Employee), torontoJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: hmmmmmm
Cons: still outsourcing canadian jobs to india
The Banking industry has changed drastically,
The outsourcing continues to go offshore to India.

a typical day is no talking with co workers, management on
your butt full time,
management only promotes managers and managers
kids. for all the people still working there i feel for you all.

All summer students have a mom or pop in the big leagues
who come in knowing nothing at all and are paid premium salaries
while the people who actually do the work get treated like
3rd world workers.

No opportunity for advancement as much as they chant in the public eye,

sad situation all around. RBC should be RBI
Royal bank of India,

pick up a phone in any branch and dial 611 - you will be linked up with a rep from India !

Canadian jobs need to stay here in CANADA

The hardest part of the job was dealing with shady management
always out to hinder everyone with outsourcing threats for the last 4 years.

Not a place I would recommend for employment going forward.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Windsor, ONJanuary 14, 2015
Working at the Royal Bank of Canada was a rewarding experience. It allowed me to use my exceptional organization skills on a large scale within my branch, and to contribute to the productivity of RBC in the south western division as a whole. Many of my ideas and innovations were applied throughout the branches in Windsor.

Working as a central teller I dealt with business clients, with a large variety of issues and concerns. I managed the needs of small business owners to large corporations. In addition to assisting my clients I was solely in charge of all monies processing through the branch on a daily basis. I was able to implement many time saving strategies as well as new technologies into the branch systems with ease.

Working as a customer service representative I dealt with mainly personal clients. From simple tasks to large scale investigations I was the first point of contact on a daily basis. My passion for the job and my clients was apparent with each client I had, and I was commended on many occasions for my due diligence and personal attitude of compassion.

In the time I worked within the Royal Bank, I learned a great deal about how to assess a persons needs, current and future, based on a few moments of conversation. I exceeded my sales goals on a qaurterly to yearly basis, which contributed to the success of my branch as a whole.

Within the branch I worked with a small team, and we worked together to raise eachother up. This teamwork was essential in our success. It is beacuse of this team attitude that we were able to successfully catch and prevent many fraudulent attempts, while always manitaining our goals of putting the clients first.

ACCOUNT MANAGER/CSR TRAINEE (MBA Intern) (Current Employee), Vancouver IslandDecember 22, 2014
Great training opportunities and a friendly work environment.

Speaking from my experience as a minority, I would say RBC as an organization strives to maintain equality and promote diversity in the work environment but it is yet to translate in the realities in the general environment.Many staff still struggle with this. Hence some racist tendencies. But if you have built a tough skin as an individual then you should be fine

QA Lead (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 9, 2014
1. I was a backup QA lead for one of the projects, and the day i started, there was a Severity 1 issue which has to tested and provide sign off. So contacted Technical Support Analyst and Business teams and based on the transition that i had got from my colleague, i could manage the task.
2. Confidence, analyzing problem and raise alarm in the right time to right person is what i learnt.
3. Management was so supportive and they helped me in finding right contact who can help me in getting more information.
4.Apart from very few tough situations, it was always a wonderful team with very co-operative co-workers and learnt to maintain the synergy in the team.
5. Transit project in the middle to some other QA lead is the hardest part of my job so far.
6. I love the QA lead role that am doing, very co-operative team and the environment.

Friendly and enjoyable workplace
Account Manager (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONDecember 4, 2014
Pros: good hours, good location, great staff
Cons: pressure to hit always-increasing sales goals
A typical day consisted of meeting with clients to provide advice on personal financial products offered by the bank. Every day provided new learning opportunities whether it be a scenario a client presented if there was an issue with one of their products, a new product being offered by the bank, a new system to use, or a problem encountered during the course of daily activities. Management was very accommodating and provided flexibility when required. Co-workers were very friendly and eager to help if you were stuck. Hardest part of the job was ensuring that nothing was forgotten about whether it be calling back a client, completing pending transactions, or completing a task assigned. The most enjoyable part of the job was when a client thanked you for providing good advice and leaving happier than when they arrived.
