Lending Service Officer (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 May 2018
It's ok for someone recently graduated. But the salary is not competitive. There's also a 2 years binding contract for promotion within the same company (it gets waived when it's within the same department).
Manager Client Services - Major Accounts Group (Former Employee) – Last location Missisauga – 22 May 2018
Productive but not motivational. Very busy office and lots of changes to the job accountabilities. Office move to Mississauga 2 hr commute Typical day at work is that you are ragged. Job is not difficult but very very bust
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 15 May 2018
Ive worked for Scotiabank for years. It used to be a lot better in terms of managment and caring about your personal life. Most of the branches are really great in terms of your team, but some branches are very hostile. The pay is also horrible and the annual increase is a joke. You have to fight for better pay and even then, it's barely minimum wage. They expect you to know so much information, handle money, and act professionally but they don't pay you for that. The job security has also become a joke recently, with job cuts across the board for everyone including those people who have been there for 20+ years.
Terrific talented workforce working on challenging and rewarding projects.
Internal Auditor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 May 2018
During my typical workday, I am responsible for overseeing my audit projects and audit teams as they progress on various stages of completion during planning, fieldwork and reporting. I check in with clients for any follow-up questions, audit evidence (excel sheets), and help them with any issues they may be having and provide value through effectiveness and efficiency.
Great work culture at Scotiabank - like a second family.
Hardest part of job is staying on top of all your projects. It is doable once you get organized and stay focused and determined. Keep up the great positive energy throughout the busy day and you will succeed.
Teller/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Nova Scotia – 9 May 2018
When I worked for the bank, I felt we had the best customer service and best products. Staff were well trained to do their jobs and provide well informed customer service. I loved customer service and handling, balancing the cash. It makes a difference when you care about the customer and the services you are providing.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 7 May 2018
Working for Scotiabank as a financial advisor has its pros and cons. Overall the company seems to care for its employees and wants to advance the ones they feel should be placed in jobs that suit their abilities. Management can be difficult and there are politics in the branch. However, you will get that in basically any job you work at so have to weigh out the pros with the cons in that regard. It really depends on the branch and your manager as to whether or not you will enjoy your time working there.
National Service Consultant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 May 2018
I absolutely enjoyed working at Scotiabank until I was used to train staff in Mexico then "let go". That was a very horrifying experience . Once the call center in Mexico was fully established, the staff in my department was cut. The staff was used to train and assist the reps in Mexico to learn and master the product and processes, and once they were able to handle calls, the people in my call center were let go. This was a very devastating experience for me. i enjoyed working there, we lived like a big family. I looked forward to each and every day to go to work. I enjoyed the new challenges that I was faced with every day. The job required alot of involvement and multi-tasking which I enjoyed alot. The entire call-center lived like one big family.
