Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 November 2017
A typical day at work entails overseeing regulatory operations, engaging with customers and coaching and developing talent. I have learnt that I need to lead through example. As a leader, we are faced with diverse, on going challenges. It is important that we respond to these challenges with a positive attitude and a solution based approach. It is also important that we bring energy and a goal mindset to work. It is our job to keep our teams focused and on plan. Recognition is key in the workplace. As a leader, we need to bring the team together as often as possible to ensure unity and that everyone is working together towards a common goal. These are the opportunities we have to recognize success, brainstorm around challenges and share pertinent team information. The most difficult aspect of the job has been leading through transformation change. We have to keep our teams motivated and inspired and support them in future career development. The most enjoyable aspect of the job is the people. Working as a team towards sales and customer service targets or fundraising goals has been very rewarding. Furthermore, being able to develop talent and observe employees progressing within their career has been gratifying. Finally, working with customers to create customized financial plans and meet service agreements has been truly enjoyable.

Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 November 2017
Just like any other Financial Advisor/ personal banking officer position at a bank there is too much pressure on sales. It's a good job to get in the bank, but do not be hopeful that this positon will help you transition into a corporate role.
People Leader (Current Employee) – Toronto, Canada – 14 November 2017
I joined Scotiabank in 2016 and started working in the Digital Factory - our innovation hub tasked with transforming the customer experience. There, I had the opportunity to work with the most talented group of individuals in my international career and have made significant impact to the work, culture and team. It's been an incredibly rewarding experience.
I recently moved to another new group to the bank. Scotiabank saw this skill-set as being an important one for the bank so they invested in it's creation.I think that's pretty amazing.
If you're looking for a place that will challenge you, offer meaningful training / development opportunities and give you access to some of the best leaders in the business (technology, retail banking, operations etc.) than this is the place for you.
MANAGER, SMALL BUSINESS (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 November 2017
Working for Scotiabank was very mechanical. Everything was controlled through computer software with no room for thought or adaptation. A good workplace to begin a career but little room for advancement unless you do it for yourself, but the opportunities are there if someone is willing to lose you on their team.

Nice place to work, clean environment. Salary is not competitive. New management chose for hire rarely has knowledge on the position or department, and therefore makes it difficult to go to them for questions or advise.
