MANAGER, CONTACT CENTRE (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 November 2016
Unfortunately, since Scotiabank obtained the new President, the culture, the environment, the employee focus, changed and is no longer important, job security does not exist and employee advancement not longer exist.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Twillingate, NL7 November 2016
Nice friendly atmosphere with a lot of presser to succeed, Pay is moderate. A typical day you make calls to get customers to meet with you, you need to reach a certain amount of meeting each day.

all about selling
Financial advisor (Former Employee) –  Southwest ontario1 November 2016
Lots of favouritism within branches! It's all about the sales and not the client. Hefty sales targets! Stressful working atmosphere! Minimal support system! Expectation for deals and selling is quite unrealistic.
Pros
Full time
Cons
Pay is mediocre, all about sales and pushing management up the ladder

unreasonable
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON15 October 2016
Corporate culture of Scotiabank changed drastically in the last 2 years, company/management stopped caring about employees, became very unreasonable, ever increasing sales goals, no change in salary, increased pressure and stress. i understand that it all comes from the top, but all the innovations that had been introduced in a very barbaric way. Things that work in theory had been forced to be implemented in practice, but didn't work due to lack of understanding of work processes on the lower level, waste of time that might have been spent on making actual sales.
