Teller (Current Employee) – Toronto – 13 June 2019
There is a lot of work involved with being a teller and little pay for it. Management is lazy on training and then gets mad when you screw up since they didn't bother to teach you. Benefits are good if you last long enough to enjoy them.
HR/Employee Service Consultant (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 11 June 2019
It was a great experience. Loved the culture. Loved coming in to work everyday. Typical 9-5. The hardest part about leaving the job was going due to numerous personal issues I was going through at the time as an individual.
Overall not a bad place to work but room for improvement
IT Consultant - Senior Project Control Officer (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON and Toronto – 29 May 2019
Processes are very outdated..company spends $$ on improvements with Customers but back end is still too outgdated and needs to be refined. Salary is not aligned with other banks for senior PCO/Jr. PM ..hightest is :54.00 per hr.
Graet team to work with good work life balance
Salary does not align with responsibilities, workload is heavy due to outdated processes structure for project deliverables needs to be refined, worked on multiple projects and workload and responsibilities were excessive, worked late hrs and never was allowed to bill OT but PM left early all the time.

Being a part of Scotia Banks outsourced services, the salary packages are not as competitive for the expected/required results. But working at Teleperformance (Scotia Bank Team) is a experice which will a crucial asset in furthering one's career in banking.
Mortgage Fulfillment Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 May 2019
High workload, low compensation, high expectations with minimal training. Employees were nice enough, some helped if you got stuck or needed assistance with something you weren’t trained on (but still expected to complete) Work life balance - contract work so no overtime, but other employees decided to work 10 hr days. Crazy busy during the season.
Financial Advisor 5 (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 April 2019
Scotiabank has a great work culture and was a lot more supportive than TD. Having worked at both, I much prefer Scotia and can honestly say that scotia treats its employees much better. The one complaint is the one hour lunch as I’d much rather have 30 min and leave earlier. Give us the option to choose!
Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 April 2019
The people I have interacted with here are fantastic. Throughout the many different teams I work with, everyone will almost always try to help you and bring value to whatever they are doing. It is a good place to experience a friendly culture.
Accounting Officer (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 April 2019
The job culture at Scotia is pretty good because the employees do their best to ensure inclusivity, enjoyment, and facilitate a celebratory surrounding. Job advancement is the biggest downfall, next to their menial salary. Nepotism reigns in the atmosphere as unqualified people are given positions because of who they know, regardless of what they can do.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – West Kelowna, BC – 28 March 2019
Never in my life have I worked at a place as internally corrupt as Scotiabank. Managers only become managers because of inside alliances & friendships in corporate positions. There are 2 good managers as far as I’m aware during my working life. One of them is retired who was my previous manager and treat my fair. My coworkers are very nice just the new manager. During I am working, the manager always pushes me on the position all the time. EX: when we only have two tellers in the front, the manager was chatting with another teller and only me working in the front and I even cannot leave to the washroom. When negotiating with managers to promote, they will catch your mistakes like months ago to say no. They ask will be perfect and no mistakes happen (even I didn't all my cx name one time because I do not know how to pronounce and also lines up in the front). The manager did not coach once a week but will ask you to do everything right. The rule was made by the manager like cash releasing, and they can change all the time. Almost my old coworkers were left because the new manager came in. The last salary was not right and the manager has discrimination on me. The main branch in Toronto must come to do another review not just interview with everybody. Scotia will not be my choice anymore.
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 12 March 2019
Worked for a few different managers, some are great but some are bitter and shouldn't be there any more. One manager I had would cherry-pick leads and clients (i.e. prospective sales) and take them off 1 advisers calendar and give them to her favorites.
After staff have been there for 10+ years they have a sense of "you can't fire me" and leadership (district & regional VPs) leave them alone.
