very stressful and under paid.

It’s very stressful to work as FSR in the branch. It always short of people and high turnover rate. With no teller branch, advisor will need to stand in the lobby helping out with transactions. At the same time, need to have meetings to meet targets.

Pros

With medical benefit

Cons

Stressful and long hours

Good place to work overall, high staff turnovers

Good place to work for the most part. High staff and management turnover. Good benefits. As with most financial institutions high sales expectations.

Expect to be overworked and underpaid.

The bank is in cost cutting mode. Every single year without fail (7 yrs & counting) they "tweak" your compensation...... and not to your benefit. Don't expect work-life balance in branch life. They say they value their employees but they really don't.

Stressful workplace but you learn alot

The job is stressful and demanding, management micromanages and changes your schedule as they wish. Benefits are great though! Salary is also ok depending on your position.

Productive

The activities are easy to perform, schedules are very respectful of your times off, they are very flexible and they pay is good compared to similar job positions on other companies. The only con I see is that most of the time is back to back, which can cause some customers to be very angry at waiting times. This is something that is being tried to change by bringing more workers.

Flexible and easy job

Its ok for someone who likes cold calling and get paid based on deals you close joint with FSR.Sometimes it gets boring when you have no clients or invites.

Pros

Flexibility pay ok

Cons

Low skills

Meritocracy at its finest

CIBC is a good place to get your foot in the door in the baking industry with a competitive salary and standard benefits you'd expect. Focus on sales is incredible considering the company eliminated variable compensation structure. Be prepared for a lot of planning, redundant meetings and the occasional happy client.

Fine place to work

It's okay, it all depends on who your manager is. if they are decent you will have an enjoyable job. If not be a great experience. good pay and benefits though.

Pros

Fine job

Cons

can go wrong if bad manager
Was this review helpful?

Poor experience. Low pay.

Bad people management. No support. Unrealistic expectations. Putting people against each other. Toxic work environment. LOW WAGE. Recognizing people without appreciating they’re hard work. The only reward for good work is more work.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

Basically a sweatshop. Low wages. No career advancement.

High Turnover

Turnover too high, everyone is busy, training is provided. But everyone busy, hard to ask find someone to answer questions. Working hours are too long, and salary is low.

Pros

People are nice

Cons

Long hours

Poor management

Some great team members who are knowledgeble about the platforms and are efficient colleaugues.Terrible product directors who neglect and have little to no vision or strategy on the future of the platform other than BAU and government mandates.Many parts of platform are tied up in vendor products that limit and prevent new tech from being implemented.Top level management do not value employees whatsoever and turnover is massive. They refuse to increase salaries to be competitive and raises are miniscule.Day by day is fine, working within office and teams is much better than the old stale office environment, however it remains to be seen if wfh will continue.Lots of senior managers and directorswho are incompetent and try to pass their work off onto other teams.

Started off good

It started off a good opportunity but did not last long. Pay is terrible and they make sure you know your job is not safe. Everything is based on productivity.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

Horrible managers

Associated Financial advisor

The new work structure does not make any sense. Don’t work at CIBC.low pay and high expectations. Never end. If you want to work for bank, select other FI instead.

Cibc

No work life balance. Worked for cibc 10 years when I decided to have a family. They no longer would be flexible or made it impossible for you to advance as they don’t offer good hours for any working parent or caregiver.The management in Client Account Management is one of the worst in the bank. A lot of nepotism and discrimination. They say they want to be inclusive but does not treat employees fairly based off of race, age, gender, family status, etc. the list goes on.The pay is the lowest among the competitors. Cost of inflation goes up you get a 10 dollar a cheque raise which is laughable when you have been working there over a decade.

Pros

Security once you in you can stay

Cons

No work life balance. Zero flexibility.

Good place to start career and gain bank experience

Overall good place to start career and get your foot in the door. Great bank benefits. Health benefits. Unionized. Good bonuses. Diversity. But the back to back calls is very stressful. Managers are on you about time management. You cant be away from your desk for more than 2 minutes. I have friends who work for other banks that dont have this problem. The raises arent the greatest.

Pros

Bank benefits such as no fees for bank accounts, or credit cards. Meet new people. SOME managers are cool. Bonuses are always good. Benefits.

Cons

Schedule based on seniority, Pay doesn’t increase by much. Back to back calls. If you’re away from your desk, for more than 2 mins, they’re already hunting you down.
