CIBC selected this as a representative review
Great place to grow and develop as a young professional; works with very notable, high profile, and reputable Canadian clients . Very team-oriented culture. Management open and very approachable — both with respect to day-to-day operations and with to long-term growth initiatives.
Great place to work. Management is always helpful, encouraging and supportive. Staff is well diversified and friendly. Work hours are reasonable although some days are longer than others. Would be nice to have a better salary considering the responsibilities but benefits and pension are great.
Can be stressful
Working at CIBC is HORRIBLE. Right out of the gates, it takes a couple months to start working once you've been hired. Then their training program is a joke. They push you through is as fast as possible, and throw you to the wolves to get chewed up and spit out. Clients scream at employees all day - everyday. Once again, I'll blame this on the training program leaving everybody to be incompetent. There is never any staff at locations, because everyone quits!!! And because everyone quits there is way to much work to do with no staff. This is what I was told when I started working a bunch of overtime, in order to complete my work.... "If you come in early, or stay late you cannot put in the overtime hours. Legally we have to pay you, but if you claim it then we won't let you stay". SO, not only am i trying to to the job for 3 employees (and I'm getting the same god awful pay), but not I'm not allowed to claim the overtime. They would rather sacrifice the clients and employees happiness, then spare a few extra dollars from the billions they make.

Required to learn anything related to retail banking but being paid less than other banks. Work environment is competitive, managers always encourage us to perform better and improve. Consistently monitor our performance and provide feedback
If you like getting the feeling of being punched in the face every day, you should consider a job at CIBC. The experience will be full of regret, threats and constant abuse. Being at CIBC feels like a family of starving hyena that are waiting for you to get sick so they can feed off your corpse. Getting this job will make you feel good 1% and a piece of flying garbage manure that fell from the sky 99%.
CIBC is a good place to start but provides almost no room for advancement. Systems are out-of-date and new management has brought inconsistencies in expectations of our role and work is not valued. Good benefits, pay is not competitive, would not stay here long term.
My job can be very busy and fast paced but it is very exciting and it feels amazing to help people reach their financial goals. CIBC gives great support to their staff to ensure they can work productively and enjoy their work atmosphere.

Great leadership team and people first environment. ... I personally have improved my interpersonal skills working in this place. You have the opportunity to learn from different programs and to work with people from different backgrounds that have enriched my work culture.
The job in itself has the potential to be a great job, the pay is good, the insurance / benefits are good. the hours are not great as they are based off of your time as an employee, so if you are a new employee it is likely you will be selected to work late evenings and weekends etc. The only fault I had with this job is the extreme micromanagement. The managers put pressure on the team leaders to make sure theyre teams are excelling and reaching high sales targets, so in turn the team leaders are constantly breathing down your neck and monitoring everything you do through a magnifying glass, I personally found this extremely uncomfortable and stressful.
