I was with Scotiabank over 12 years and then let go due to restructuring. There is not much opportunity in Quebec, especially if your job can be done in Ontario where many functions are being centralised to. All the best opportunities are there as well as career development benefits.
I took early retirement because the management changed at our branch and it was terrible. Bad when customer reps knew more then management. Cut hours and no raises and moral was sinking fast.
Stressful and negative work environment. Long commute coupled with sales pressures for a low salary made for a poor trade off.
They have restructuring in credit risk management for some time and I was let go after one year

I did not want to ever leave Scotiabank but my department closed down would have stayed employed if they had not closed down... the department was very focused to make sure we were all taken care off but would have liked to stayed employed with Scotiabank they treated me with a lot of respect if Scotiabank would employ me in Terrace, B.C. I would definitely join their team

Left for personal reasons. Nothing to do with the Bank. In fact we have now moved to Toronto and I would like to go back to work for the Scotia Bank.

Working for an evil company made me not want to get out of bed in the morning.
