I love working for first Ontario. It's so team oriented and everyone care for each other and have each other's back. It's not a sales driven place like big banks. Of course there is still sales but promote what's actually good for you.. pay is better then big banks as well.
Supportive, team oriented, room for advancement, unionized
Takes usually years to get full time permanent
Past 5 years have gone downhill. Board has been disconnected from reality or just had been misinformed. Executive hire and promote their friends. Skill and knowledge have little to do with job title. Front 'll e and middleanahers have no opportunity to move to higher positons as they do all the work fpr the upper management so they look good. Upper managemt enjoys an abundance of social activities at local venues. These venues provide access to upper management because of sponsorship money. These funds are actually member funds but little respect is given to that pary of the credit union concept.
Wages are satisfactory but stay at frontline work status
Poor and selfish management. They are very selfcentred and entitled
Great place to work. Supportive environment. Good training. Management is helpful and willing to assist you to the next level, whatever that may be. The members are great to work with. Very patient all around, especially when you are new. Very helpful even for the seasoned Vets, who may forget.
A typical day changed depending on my role, but I would organize my appointments, research the members current patterns before meeting, speak in depth about their needs and goals, and discuss solutions with them as well as my superiors when needed. I learned to manage and prioritize my time, meet deadlines while communicating with all necessary parties, and to make cold calls
Ongoing support and development from management, job security, good employee atmosphere
Launching changes to the workplace organization without looking at the impact to staff or members
I'm a team player and this was a great team. I still miss these guys. This was a part time job to supplement my college tuition, and wasn't my dream job, but I have nothing negative to say about this job because of the culture!
Flexible hours and great co-workers
Not my dream job.
Branch managers don’t do their jobs, no coaching provided, no performance feedback. Only part time positions available. Inefficient Union, not there to do anything but collect fees from part time employees to benefit full time employees. Union rep is a joke, she does nothing to benefit the employees. Impossible to find assistance to do your job right. Training is minimal and poor at best. The banking system is prone to error and requires frequent cutting and pasting of information. This allows for frequent errors and lack of customer service.
