There were so many changes being made that employees were being transferred and bumped everyday. Targets were sometimes unmeetable and caused a lot of stress and lack of moral.

Enjoyed my time there
Salesforce Applications Developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto Ontario31 July 2018
I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to work from home frequently. As somebody who was new at the company I was given a lot of autonomy and freedom to make decisions. Friendly people. The work environment was not great - very little privacy and they didn't have many quiet areas where you could focus on work without interruptions.

Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Current Employee) –  Alberta31 July 2018
As a CSR (Bank Teller) your job is to assist bank customers with their personal or business transactions. You will also have sales and activity targets that are emphasized frequently.

Increasingly, you are to encourage customers to use digital and electronic banking through their own computers or the ATMs. Essentially, you are working yourself out of a job because the more people do on-line or other digital banking on their own, the less a CSR is needed.

The hours are flexible but only part-time for most of the CSRs - averaging at about 24 hours per week or less.

Benefits package is really good, considering you're only part-time.

There is room to advance, but usually it is because someone has left the company, moved away or moved up themselves. I believe there will be fewer and fewer CSR positions as time goes by.
Pros
Good benefits, customer interaction, Opportunities to advance.
Cons
Pay and hours aren't enough. Role is disappearing. Training is essentially learn as you go.
