Okay place to be but you can do better.
Real Time Analyst - Manager Support Centre (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON13 October 2017
Current management is a disaster. Way too many inconsistencies, and useless reports. Better to have an understanding of whats happening on the contact centre, so you get a good idea of what actually matters.
Pros
Free Bank Account
Cons
Too much inconsistency

A difficult, underpaid job.
Customer Service Officer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 October 2017
Working with Scotiabank was never an easy task, their systems were archaic but simple to use which caused issues accomplishing the sales goals they required. The management at Scotiabank seemed to care little for their staff unless you get them upset, and the payment you received was WELL under what you should have been making for the same job somewhere else.

Great company
GTB Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 October 2017
Great company to work for, but too Corporate on some levels. If you don't network you will not get any where, but if too many people know you, Senior members get jealous.

Regional Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC11 October 2017
It's a great place to work. Good work life balance. Less opportunity for career advancement (out-side of head office).

I strongly recommend for those who wants to learn and start their career.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON10 October 2017
Assisting clients daily with their everyday transactional needs. Most enjoyable part of the job would have to be filing, making labels for files, inputting data into the system, and so much more. Very friendly people and great workplace atmosphere. Very professional and you get to learn lots of new things frequently.

Fun staff
Small Business Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 October 2017
Excellent staff to bond with, we all share the same uncertainty of our jobs. Its sad that HO knowingly kept for years, long term demoralizing managers simply because of their sonority. Most had zero education regarding staff management, and developed attitudes towards anyone new, that may pose a threat to them. Happily , HO has seen the light due to completion, has interviewed all staff across Canada, with their preverbal promise there will be no reprisal. They have totally purged all uneducated aggressive demoralizing managers of late. Who knows is next!
Pros
Branch Staff
Cons
Long term managers with no education holding onto old school demorizing attitudes.
