Administrative Assistant in Toronto, ON
on 19 May 2022
Generally a good place to work at and Benefits are good too
It depends on the team you work with, overall, the teams I have worked with were good, supportive, understanding and friendly. I learned many things and there is always new things to learnYou have a work/personal life Balance (depends on the department). Management is good and knowledgeable but there is always a place for improvement. It's hard to grow in the company as there is a lot of competition in the field, but there are many opportunities. Health benefits are flexible and generally good, however, the pay is not competitive and low compared to other similar institutions. if you are coming from another institution, there is a room for salary negotiation but not if you are moving within the company.

... Little to no support. Manager not effective or timely in dealing with issues. Time off denied for outside appts. Toxic environment.Turnover in staff is high. Replacement staff takes too long to get hired and then trained.

Very encouraging environment to work in
A lot to learn for this position but once you get use to it it's one of the easiest jobs out there.A lot of benefits, very useful ones. The one downfall it's a fast pace environment like most jobs.
Customer Service Representative in Lumby, BC

Great for a part time employee. Benefits were decent. Management could be difficult but that was personality, not the bank itself. Goals are annoying and you have to fight for a few cent raise even if you surpassed all your goals.
