good and bad
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 June 2018
Like any job, there are good and bad. For the most part it was the people I worked with that made the good things, I had a team of leaders that I was able to go to about anything and that wanted to see their people move on and doing well.

The bad was some of the people I worked with, they didn't want to be there but had been there so long that it showed.
Pros
great new friends
Cons
moody clients

Professional people and very enthisiastic
Derivatives Treasury Officer/ Treasury Officer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 June 2018
The Management lets you take control of your task and they empower you. Coworkers are very friendly and have many friendly social gatherings. The workload is sometimes more than the usual and might stay work late. Sometimes they pay you overtime and sometime they won't (just as a professional courtesy). But all in all, its a cool place to work. I like it!
Pros
Many social gatherines
Cons
Needs more new office stuff

Assitant
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 June 2018
I worked at Gundy for 2 years, the branch was relatively small at the time. Depending on the team you work for, there may not be any opportunities for growth. Pay was relatively low.

Decent pay, usually busy with ``spicy`` clients
Financial Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS12 June 2018
In Canada we are not taught anything about finance in school, and it is also considered culturally rude to talk about money or finance openly. Therefore most people don`t know anything about banking, so naturally you will get most clients calling in who are a bit uncomfortable and perhaps a little embarrassed of their lack of knowledge regarding their current financial situation. Long story short, a lot of people will be calling in a bit defensive, but are nonetheless quite easy to diffuse. It is often quite busy and you will frequently be taking back to back calls for your whole shift. Hours are based on seniority, so when you`re new, you can count on getting some not so great hours, the shifts change every 3 months, so your shift is the same for that time period. For example, you could be 4pm - 12am (midnight) Tuesday - Saturday, or 11:30-7:30 Thursday - Monday.
Pros
Learn a lot about banking and finance
Cons
Hours not so great if you`re new, lots of sitting

They appear to care about all the right things but their actions speak louder than their words. Dated working environment and attitudes. Want quantity not quality work.

CIBC Sales Specialist
Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC3 June 2018
In a typical day as a Inbound sales specialist
I would promote products to our clients, credit limit increases, new applications for credit cards, credit card upgrades.
Service clients with their credit card day to day needs.
The job is very repetitive... The conditions are good and the managers care about the employees career advancement.
Good job, good pay but very repetitive

The company and staff are wonderful, although it can be very difficult to get things done. The direction also seems to change quite regularly so it is difficult to really move forward.
