Supplier Relations Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 September 2017
It has its ups and downs like any company. You just need to sit and grind and do your work. Its not as easy to move up as I initially thought. Alot of referrals come to play so need to know the right people at the right time sometimes.

Manager Personal Banking (Former Employee) – NS – 16 September 2017
Recent changes (last 3-5 years) under the new head office regime, in my opinion, have lead to a significant culture change. It is obvious now that the bottom line is the most important thing and employees are no longer treated with the respect and loyalty that we once were.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Casselman, ON – 16 September 2017
ScotiaBank is a good workplace to learn a lot of things and have fun at the same time. Working at a bank taught me how to make conversation with the customer and how to help them as much as I can. I was able to enjoy chatting with my co-workers and laugh about all kind of things. Management was amazing, always there to help us when we need it.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 15 September 2017
I was in my position for 4 months and expected to learn everything overnight without any proper training/coaching. The ball was dropped when it came to my training and I'm the one who was let go because my goals were not being met??!!???!! I think it was totally unfair to me and I was set up for failure, but with these big companies there is no one you can voice your frustrations too.
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 12 September 2017
Scotiabank is in the middle of a culture change, with the executive strongly stating that they are focused on providing advice based solutions. Branch experience is highly dependent on management teams and can vary from terrible to excellent. The best part of the job is meeting with and helping clients, whereas the hardest part is hitting sales targets.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 6 September 2017
Working at Scotiabank puts emphasis on customer service and thinking on your feet. Teamwork is emphasized, and most branches have a family feel. As most young people aren't educated in financial services and products, it is a great place to gain an understanding of the financial world. For students, it offers competitive compensation and flexible hours. For those who are interested, there are appealing options for advancement. Quality of management is specific to the branch itself.
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 September 2017
The hardest part of my job is the pay which is not as competitive as it should be based on the amount of work and requirements the position requires for. We are required to do mortgages and investments along with credit products and be financial advisors but we make bare minimum which plays a huge factor in motivation
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 September 2017
I have been working with Scotiabank for about 3 years now and currently in my role I am a supervisor and in my department we deal with customer adjustments, overdrafts,staff accounts, closing overdrawn accounts. Basically what the branch cant do they send it to our department and get that request completed.Our department is called transaction fulfillment.I believe the hardest part of the job is trying to keep up with branch requests because we do serve all the branches in the country and we always usually have backlogs as well.
