One of the major banks was a great place to work! My leaders and co-workers were great people to work with. They assisted when needed and provided guidance and resources to be successful.

Depending on management, this can be a good place to work
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 August 2017
Depending on management, this can be a good place to work. Work experience is only relevant to your supervisor. I have had an amazing branch manager and a terrible manager with a micro management attitude. Long work hours were appreciated and awarded by one branch manager, while the other did not.
Pros
company perks
Cons
long hours

Learned many skills at Scotiabank. Felt proud working there.
Lending and Investment Officer (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 August 2017
Many phone call, large and crazy workload. Drop in customers who you had to serve, including schduled customers. Need to work under pressure. Always a deadline to for example, submit a loan application or RSP deadlines. Mortgage loan deadlines so they could be processed ontime for closing day. Not to mention, internal mandated deadlines. Once a week staff meetings. Dress up everyday nicely in a suit. Unfortunately, a sales target culture has taken it's roots there subverting service levels. Staff that have the best sales are rewarded and nothing recognized for those with good service.
Pros
Can get alot of experience in advising about financial services and products
Cons
Scary work load, sometimes crazy pressure

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB20 August 2017
The team was not helpful, I have worked in a small branch, the workplace culture is very bad, there is no proper training, also the managers don't care if you do your job well.

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.

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.

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
