ts very productive and fun workplace. i like environment its very positive motivating and fun. i like management there they are good people.I would love to see them growing. Its great place to work. I highly recommend working there.
Management was extremely supportive and training was very helpful. The nature of the job was difficult and not made for everyone but if you are patient and handle stress well you can make it . I recommend this company to anyone looking for stability and a good work life balance .
The job in itself is pretty simple and very doable. Doing my job and completing my tasks was actually the easy part of being in that office.
Your problem will be with management and their lack of logical reasoning and common sense. The supervisor is a complete idiot who has no clue about the products and procedures. There is favouritism in the Kingston office. And they expect you to be a yes man with no opinion of your own. There aren't many advancements opportunities as they are all given to the people in Kingston over the Montreal office.
Sitting down for long periods of time, stressful, no gratitude, not professional. High turnover in customer service, like a revolving door.
People working there are not complemented and supported by managers. Lack of support.
I was recruited by a head hunter, and left a big bank to work for them, because the money was good. They lacked decent product offerings for the broker-dealer channel on wealth management. They did not provide training until a year after the job. Constant turnover. Biggest waste of my time.
I had a great time working for Empire life while I was still attending university. They allowed me to extend my summer position and work from home during the school year. I was given responsibility and was rewarded for my hard work. Management was very considerate and I learned a lot.
Contract after contract and no one went to bat for us. Top performers were some of the temps and contracts, but they never got any company perks or benefits. The salary is low for the amount of responsibility. It's always a blame game and the gossip is cancerous.
It was always a busy day which I enjoy. I have learned so many things with Empire Life. The management was excellent. My co-workers were good and friendly. The hardest part of the job is when it was not busy, because when Im not busy I feel like I did not accomplish something for that day. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with clients, because, I enjoy people.
