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.

Customer Service (Former Employee), Montréal, QCNovember 13, 2014
When I was at RBC I was in customer service at a call centre. The staff at RBC are just fantastic well chosen people. The company is extremely well managed in the sense that technology surveils everything and management really have a good view of what is happening. I do have some reservations though about certain practices; if an employee for example missed their break because they were on a long call with a customer, they have to take it on their own logged out time; this is a fact, and this is a fact which I found unjust.

Summary
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), MississaugaNovember 10, 2014
Pros: team work, managment
Cons: long hours, intense
I would wake up everything morning to assisting customers through an inbound call center to help achieve their goals. I learned that every customer is different and you must treat each call differently. The Management was spectacular, they allowed you to engage in the decision making. My co- workers made me laugh but we also kept each other on task. The hardest part was dealing with an angry customer but those were the situations that helped me learn and grow. I loved my team!
