Good salary and benefits in a clean and professional environment.
Manager Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Maple, ON18 August 2017
The only thing constant at Scotiabank is change. Manager Customer Service level is typically stressful due to the constant down sizing and redistribution of workloads. In our age of technology most customers come to the branch because they have a problem so you must be adept at changing a negative situation into a positive opportunity to sell.

Bank is ok as starter, there is room for growth at the branch level. Management culture varies among districts. Good starting position for kids coming out of university.

Funding representative
Funding representative (Former Employee) –  Anjou, QC16 August 2017
I would'nt recommend anyone to work at SDA in anjou or burnaby because of the poor management. Worked with great people but management was unfair. Equal oppotunity was not given to everyone.
Pros
Salary, reward dinner
Cons
Too much preference when given promotion.

Personal Banking Officer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 August 2017
I have worked in the call center so my experience is not based on the branch. So stressful, someone is always listening to your calls and finding something to criticize. They always expect you to find a way to sell anything to the customer whether it is suitable or not.

... and not for the better.
With all the layoffs, staff morale is very low. People are afraid to seek career advancement or ask for a raise unless they want to be packaged.
Pros
Great if you like being treated like livestock
Cons
Work/Life balance is declining.

Terrible company to work for/stressful
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Manitoba8 August 2017
Company highly focused on sales and pushing numbers. Hard to find quality clients at some rural locations,but sales targets are still there making you feel stressed day in day out!!! Not worth putting your self and your family through this day in day out maybe if this role was 80k plus... there are so many other jobs out there where you can make the same wage doing half the work/half the stress or any...
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Terrible Salary based on the amount of stress
