I left because I truly believe I was bullied at work. There were aggressive individuals on my team. the whole HR system is too cumbersome and is not helpful. I couldn't take any more.

I was a causal employee for almost six years and worked every Saturday. When the new wave hit i was told that casual employees needed to be treated as casuals and i was no longer guartanneed any hours. So since there was supposedly no hrs for me, i was mailed a letter terminating my employment. No phone call at all regarding my employment. Just shows you how the company treats their employees

After 16 happy and fulfilling years with eh company the changes got the better of me. It went from a family friendly atmosphere to a business looking for the bottom line where they can make a buck. I wasn't prepared to give into the requirements of the new structure where every minute of my day was accounted for and micromanaging became the norm. Our results slipped due to unhappy employees and many employees fighting over sales. This type of behavior would never have happened before. Selling a product should be about what's best for the customer's needs, not what sales revenue of that product will help you reach your target.

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.
