People complain too much.. start working in 3rd world countries and start complaining. No wonder when a 3rd world country person comes to a developed country and work they progress well as opposed to a person who was born locally. Soon to be bankers should start having international banking in their course to see what they have locally than being overseas.

One of the worst employer. They are richer than you think based on the sweat of dedicated employees putting hours of work with no room for advancement unless your mom and dad has a great title at the bank.

Harassment. No protection from HR. It's not worth working their with all the stress they put you through. They make diversity sound so wonderful which it does on paper, but it does not exist which is misleading. I would wish my worst enemy to work at Scotiabank. Make no mistake - they don't care about customers or employees.

I worked at a bank branch for a short time, 3 month probation time, the person who trained me was great, but they expect you to learn EVERYTHING in a short time. I had very little help to set up my benefits, had to figure it out on my own at home. I was let go after that 3 months because I wasn’t fast enough, didn’t learn quickly enough, but if I rushed through, made a mistake, then it wasn’t good either. And nobody is supposed to know that a certain customer came in the branch .

No longer about the customer. Pay is no where comparable to the work you are expected to do. Tech is wildly out-dated and you have to use over 6 different platforms to open products that often 'go down'. There is also way to much to be focused on; calls, meetings, credit cards, pipeline, mortgages, mutual funds, investment statements, deposits, Insurance, primary banking, customer service, digital engagement, mappings, lobby ambassador, working on the front line when short staffed and I'm sure I am forgetting some. Working in the branch is by far the worst spot to be in Scotiabank. Also if you survive the WAVE... you deserve an award!

Very poor management, Financial Advisors not well trained, lack of reasoning skills or ability to make a decision. Have to run to their manager for every decision. Unprofessional and terrible unprofessional dress code are we in an escort business or a a bank I couldn't tell.. stilettos and bra and cleavage showing? Come on how gross
