if you need fast cash and not planing to take on a long term job this is for you, the job is very demanding and you don’t get recognized enough, they undermine your stress and make you feel bad if you don’t meet up all the statistics which are insane if you still have to provide excellent customer service. I think they should review their management and change their vision from sales oriented to customer satisfaction oriented .
Pros
good benefits
Cons
very demanding, a lot of sales and statistics to follow and reach, no hard bonuses and management isn’t care oriented

I worked at a very good company before starting there and it was very different.All jobs treat you like numbers but there it's the worse and you get fired very quickly or people leave very fast.

Horrible management. They are not what they used to be. Used to be client and employee oriented, but lately, all that has changed and now, all they think about is making money. Don't waste your time with Cibc, their are plenty of other banks out there that will actually treat you as a human being, while making money.

The employees are very fun to work with, and very focused on their tasks at the same time. A typical day at work will be taking phone-calls all day and ensuring customer satisfaction. Management lacks flexibility.

since I'm working at Cibc I've learned new things in the finance industry and always keep learning. my overall experience working at Cibc is memorable however in terms of the scheduling there is more work to be done. The reason that I always get is the business needs therefore to be able to have employees ho stay loyal toothier work place there needs to be an understanding of the employee's persona life. Many of us work odd hors and also work on weekends. After 2 years this should change and realize that if you're able to bless your employees , your employees will the bless you.

Was a great place but shut down production. Excellent cross training and utlization of staff. The owners were getting older and as they pulled away from the business it lost a lot of sales.

Pros
nice people
Cons
finished at mid night not ideal for people living too far but it was fun

Great work enviroment. Everybody had the ability to help and teach their own methods towards other co-workers in order to be a great team. Hardest part was not having a liable "coach/team leader" to guide me with the proper way of using the systems proved and handle calls.
Pros
Relaxing room with TV and downtown location gives access to many restaurants
Cons
breaks were 30 mins long whcih is not bad if you bring your own lunch

In my time at CIBC, I was promised a lot of advancement and that their employees were very well taken care of. They set unreasonably high targets for sales that I had to push onto POOR people. Imagine having to shove a credit card down the throat of an elderly gentleman who is already 20k in debt. Because I had no heart for that offer, the system that carefully tracks your referrals has flagged me. Believe me when I tell you that working at a bank only looks fancy because you're in a suit... They try to hype up their employees just to get them motivated to sell, sell, sell. They don't really care. Oh and a 5 cent increase per year to your salary?! Also, try balancing a huge amount of cash. If you don't balance by more than 5$, chances are you're staying, even if its 2 hours UNPAID. This happens very often. Lastly, they train you online, by showing some sketchy videos and multiple choice answers. When the real deal comes and you aren't aware of certain procedures because you WERE NOT trained for them, they fire you. FOR SIMPLE SMALL MISTAKES.
Pros
You wear a suit
Cons
Long standing hours, force you to sell or you're out, outdates programs and computers
