Sales Focused with a rather less focus on training
Small Business Advisor (Current Employee) – Canada – 14 April 2017
I recently started working here as a Business Advisor and with an MBA I feel this is not a very interesting workplace for a Business graduate interested in Finance career, atleast at the retail level.
Training is minimal and the sales goals are unrealisitic to some part. Solely focused on Sales and less on advise part so far (bad training remember). Mostly for people who are interested in Sales, opening accounts (literally opening accounts), and enjoy stressful work environment.
But, as with any other bank job this comes with a lot of paper work and if you're good at all these, a good chance for advancement is what I see. Opportunities are presented and you've to be hungry enough to grab them before someone else does. Good opportunity to develop networking and Marketing skills. Pay is decent for someone who comes out of college.
Career Advancement opportunities
Long hours, boring job duties, dealing with some angry clients on a daily basis
