Teller (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 27 November 2015
If you are looking for a job that requires no thinking, this is not for you!
The company is different to work for. In that, if you want a completely organized, large corporation structure, with clearly defined positions and direction, you won't get it here. Thats also the upside to working for the company. They are much more flexible then a regular company, whether you're a part-timer or manager, you always have the opportunity to voice your opinion, as well as talk to senior management, especially the Retail Manager. She tends to visit each branch a few times throughout the year, and has 1-on-1 talks (recently started doing reviews with senior staff) with everyone at that time. Although she doesn't get back to my emails right away, she usually replies with an email or follows up within a couple days with a phone call.
Company wide, staff are easy to talk to. I've found the only clicks to be out in the Hamilton branches.
The owner used to be more involved, however has taken a step back recently. Doesn't seem to have had an effect on the company.
Lastly, we are finally getting benefits in 2016! This has been a discussion for some time now, and I don't think any of us thought it would happen. Even part-time staff will get full-benefits.
open communication, friendly co-workers, customers are awesome, good hours
lots of responsibility, small group of staff at each branch, compliance officer can be rude
