Pros: training, promotions, team that feels like family, managers who support you
Cons: pay is weak, weak resolution program for internal conflict with supervisors
I started with Scotiabank in their Calgary Call Center in 1999 and earned a promotion to Account Manager Small Business in the branch system.
Why did I leave? While the pay is the lower end of the big 5 Canadian banks, it was a poor fit with my supervisor that caused me resign from BNS. I took my issues through the resolution channels and they had nothing they could do and so rather than resent my career, I resigned, that aside, BNS is a phenomenal employer.
If you are looking for an organization that rewards performance with promotions and will provide you all the training you can take - Scotiabank is your spot. I loved my 5 years with Scotiabank and would go back in a second. Once a Scotiabank, always a Scotiabanker.
