Customer Service Officer (Former Employee), Barrington Street Halifax Nova ScotiaJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: free friday pizza
Cons: working weekends
Very fun work atmosphere. We worked in teams, the teams all had names, after rock and roll bands. We had theme days, where we would dress up for the theme. We also had great sales incentives and worked as a collaborative so all of the team would succeed.

Consultant (Contract) (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 21, 2015
My early career at Scotiabank is more like a statistic data analyst in retail banking, involving data mining, statistic modeling and business analysis.
Later, I was more involved in Wholesale and capital market product quantitative analysis, asset liability management, interest & liquidity risk management. In addition to develop the end-to-end solution, I was also involved in decision making.

Mortgage Officer (Current Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 21, 2015
Overall Scotiabank is a great place to work. Most banks/institutions will pay more for the same job however benefits are competitive and the culture of Scotiabank is fantastic. It can take some time to move to new positions and posting expectations on the job are expected to be approximately 1 year.

Summary
Home Financing Advisor (Current Employee), BramptonDecember 8, 2014
Your day would start at about 8am and end at approx 8pm. I learned alot in terms of customer value and customer management. My co-workers were helpful and enjoyable to work with. The hardest part of this job was attempting to work with others that already had their focus on their present relationships and did not really want to develop new relationships. The most enjoyable part of the job was setting my own schedule to obatain my objectives.

It is really a great place to work and grow. Fun environment very professional. Scotiabank really value his employee and their customers
Customer Service Officer - Bilingual (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 25, 2014
a typical day of work for me at the credit department was pretty much to assist customers with all inquires regarding revolving credits; day to day banking; branch and account information or redirect them to a different department if needed. There is so much to learn in term of products; systems; or even for your own financial habit. the management team is very accessible helpful and knowledgeable. my coworkers are great people. the hardest part depending of the department you work for, is to learn how to use the system. But there is a bunch of great facilitators there to help you get used to it. The Best part of the job, I believe was the training period where we all have the same schedule and can all share ideas. other than that, the job itself is just great and you get competitive benefits.

Branch Manager Lac La Biche Northern Alberta (Current Employee), Northern AlbertaNovember 14, 2014
Pros: great culture
Cons: removing positions off the org chart yet increasing results expectations
Managing the preliminary opening of the branch, overseeing the sales teams and handling information dissemination, welcoming the customers in and ensuring excellent customer experiences at all times. Escalations are dealt with with speed and precision - solutions experts are coached to understand product and application to ensure the right customer sees the right officer at the right time. Bank policy and procedure are measured to ensure compliance and special attention is given to occupational health and safety in the workplace.
The hardest part of the job was to maintain the results and yet sustain a work/home balance - I found I was working 70 hours a week including both days over the weekends.
