Global Security Operator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 April 2018
I have been working here for just under 5 years and Scotiabank has treated me pretty fairly. Getting into other positions in the bank while you are already an employee is pretty tough but not impossible.
There are many changes going on currently, so there is a sense of uncertainty
Senior Marketing Manager - Global Brand (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 March 2018
It al started as a new fresh team, new management, new goals, but right now changes are happening so fast and there is a general sense of uncertainty due to massive restructure process, lots of jobs lost. More focus on individual accountability and not on team work.
Senior Accounting Clerk (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 2 March 2018
Very busy environment with lots of pressure. Great learning experience with new techniques like proficiency in Microsoft Word, Excel and many other Software related to banking industry. The hardest part of the job is a lot of stress involved and the most enjoyable part of the job is playing foosball on breaks.

Scotiabank was a good place to work that afforded experience and great team dynamic to facilitate your development and success. Their commitment to success encourages growth and stretches the individuals to achieve that success.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 February 2018
At first this was a great place to work. But got moved around a lot between branches, with very little notice. High sales goals and pressures. Work place culture became more negative the longer I stayed, seemed like everyone was searching for a way out. Lots of micromanaging and lack of confidence in employees, felt very disposable as an employee. Work environment varied largely between branches and strongly reflected on managements goals and attitude. Extremely high turnover.
Bonus opportunities, high opportunity for advancement
Stressful, low salary, micromanagement, extensive training
Fun to help customers and people better their lives but goals suck
Small Business Advisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 February 2018
When everything is perfect and you get a customer that has high net worth it is really fun to help them out and put together great solutions to make them better off. However when it comes to helping out customers or potential customers where all the T's don't cross and match up like a high net-worth client it can be frustrating because it's almost as if the credit department or underwriters who are deciding not he deal don't like to think outside fo the box and come up with a creative solution or they turn down your proposal for a solution. When we know that the customer can go to another insituition with that proposal and get the approval. That is the most frustrating part. but the bank is a good company to work for interim's of getting your regular paycheck and not having to worry about not getting paid on time or your benefits. If you ahem a family and need a steady paycheck it is a great place to work. You are underpaid if you work in the branches for the amount of business that you bring in to the company and time you put in they can pay us more.
paid vacations and benefits
salary is low for the amount that you put up with in branch
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 22 February 2018
Having worked for this company for 10 years, I feel this speaks for itself on the company as a whole. Though restructures left me having to take another opportunity in order to grow in the way I felt I needed, it is a company loyal to it's employees and encourages advancement and growth if the path is right for you. Also has great employee appreciation standards.
