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.

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 6, 2014
Pros: nice people
Cons: some customers hard to deal with but you always tried your best
we worked hard and enjoyed it!!!! Management were always fair and had an open door for me whenever I needed them. I learnt a lot and had all chances I needed to improve in my jobs. Co-workers were always helping one another. Pleasing some customers was not always easy but we always tried to make sure they thought they were right even when they weren't but by the time they left they had a change of mind. Working with people was the most enjoyable part of my job!!!!
