HR Global Consultant, HR Transformation (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 July 2017
Its a great place to gain global experience. Flexible place to work at with great people. Still the culture is very traditional where diversity and inclusion as well as engagement management is still not part of everyday practice.
Client Service Representative (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 July 2017
Depending on which branch you work at, you might have a great time in a great team, or the opposite. Daily changes in procedure and processes. Despite an update in teller systems, they still go down a lot. Hardest part of the job is whether you get along with your client base. Advancement opportunities exist but more than likely must relocate.
Go in, do your work and leave without stress for the next day
Not enough hours, processes confusing, job aids not always clear
Manager Business Analysis (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 July 2017
The company provided a challenging experience. It gives you a balance between finance and technology. It provided an overall understanding of the finance sector. It is a good place to start when you are fresh out of school.
Bank Teller (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 23 July 2017
Its been awhile since I worked at the Bank of Nova Scotia but it was the most rewarding job I ever had. Wouldn't mind going back. I gained a lot of experience there coming right out of high school. The company was very willing to help you in various ways to better yourself . They offered me a lot of opportunity for advancement.
Service Representative (Current Employee) – Scotiabank Caribbean – 23 July 2017
Worked as a part time employees, branch had veryour little support for staff. Management just kept speaking of policies but staff never got to see or review any of the policies. It's like working in a dark hole.
Customer Service Consultant (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 July 2017
Scotiabank on a while is a great company to work for. They are fair and consistent. Qualifying for advancement can be slightly tricky. The trend right now is hiring external management which to some would be considered an advantage.
Many perks ie. Company bbqs, activities, work perks
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 July 2017
The pay was good but it could have been higher. I was customer service officer full time. They had great teams and excellent managers of each teams. Good environment to work at but however; my last pay witch was before I left the company due to an emergency with my family, my last pay was horrible even throughout I worked 37.5 hours the previous week. Their explanation didn't make any sense. I spoke with payroll about this, and their explanation was even worse. Since I resigned from Scotiabank, I didn't even care about my last pay because I'll be moving into some better things in life. I'm still grateful to have worked at Scotiabank and I wish nothing but success to anyone willing to work there. But also, be cautions about the pay.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 19 July 2017
Less salary according to the work you do. Good managers, very supportive district Vice Presidents and training. sales pressure can increase at times. Too many changes going on since the new CEO took over. some good. some bad. overall a good company to work for experience.
Senior Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 19 July 2017
We are very happy with Scotiabank’s project management and implementation process and with the Universa™ banking platform; it will allow us to enhance our partnership with our Korean members in many ways and to successfully meet their growing financial needs on an ongoing basis.”
Business analyst - Technology Application Group (Current Employee) – Toronto - Scarborough ON – 19 July 2017
Conditions for contractors are a little bit different than for full-time employees, so - for example - I cannot estimate benefits/salary... I was lucky to work with good people, true professionals and that made my work days exciting.
Cloud engineer and Puppet master (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 July 2017
BNS will eventually lead the banking technology in Canada with its PCF and Cloud programs. With the establishment of opinionated platforms via PCF and Puppet, the company has given itself the necessary technology to develop applications faster with consistency. Of course, the rest of the bank needs to get on board with the whole agile development and opinionated platforms but given the fact that all the new hires understand and embrace agile methodology and culture, the future looks bright.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 July 2017
A typical day can vary depending on how busy the branch is. But everyone is always helpful to the best of their abilities which makes it a great place to work. The most enjoyable and the hardest part are both the customers. They can make your day or ruin it.
Business Analyst / Project Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 July 2017
An enjoyable workplace environment. Worked with business staff to deliver projects large and small. Flat management structure; management was always accessible and listened to feedback, seemed always concerned with cost/benefit options. Full time staff has minimal scope and not skilled or risk taking compared with their industry counterparts. All levels of the project teams were great to work with.
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 July 2017
Highly target oriented, management isn't very helpful, however the position helps you improve communication skills. Enjoyable part of the job is you help people achieve their financial goals, hardest part is the stress associated with financial goals.
