Needs more employee appreciation, but good advancement opportunity
Teller (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 29 March 2018
Worked with great employees, but high turnover for managers.
For a bank, I expected an actual budget for employee appreciation events and benefits (like Christmas parties, celebratory lunches, etc.) for each branch... but instead we had to pitch in for those events which I've never had to do at any of my previous jobs unless you win more money for your branch budget. We are treated to one awards gala where we have a free dinner for all the branches.
The company does pay attention to trying to maintain a work/life balance and you have better benefits as a full-time employee. However, getting time off was very difficult if you are not tenured.
For client advisors, you have many expectations and responsibilities for your role with pay that does not match as compared to other financial institutions.
Lots of learning and trust, good advancement opportunities
Low wages, hard to get time off
