high stress work environment but can be fun if the team is good
Financial Services Manager, Tier (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON13 April 2018
A typical day at work includes at least 8 to 10 client appointments.
The branch work is highly focused on sales as well as providing excellent service to clients.
work culture is casual, most people are friendly and 2 or 3 people would have lunch around the same time.
Hardest part of the job is to make sure one meets the banks sales targets without hurting the clients.
It can also be hard to provide excellent service when you get a difficult client and you are unable to bend the rules.
Most enjoyable part of my job was forming long time relationships with clients, whereby they eventually became like friends.
Pros
develop great customer skills and relationships
Cons
Meeting sales targets

It's ok
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON2 April 2018
It's ok to work for. Most of the people I've worked with have been pretty good. The jobs themselves weren't bad either. The biggest problem with the bank were the targets they often felt like they were set so high that you were set up of to fail. Only your target numbers really mattered any other work you did was almost secondary when it came to review time at the end of the year.
Pros
Great people, good work environments.
Cons
High targets and singular target focus
