Administrative Assistant in Mississauga, ON
I loved working there however banking had become a sales environment. I am not a sales person. I worked there 25 years ago so do not know current conditions and procedures.
Client Administrator in Toronto, ON
Worst experience of my life
I spent all of 5 months at Scotiabank but by the first month I knew it wasn’t a good place to work. I was a client administrator that came in on a 6 month contract that could be made permanent at the end of the contract. First off, the training is horrible. They give you a run through for 2 weeks then you’re on your own. I actually didn’t mind that, but when you asked someone for help they acted as if you should already know. If you made a mistake the “team lead (s)” and the manager would make you feel like trash. The manager was absolutely no help, treated us like high school students, and talked down to us all the time and yes you do have to suck up, be a know it all, etc. It was such a toxic environment. Also, Scotiabank is so cheap and they treat their employees like bums. Plus we had to physically come in to a depressing office daily during the pandemic when literally all of our work was digital and could have been done remotely. In total, this was the worst work experience of my life, but I’m glad I had this experience so I know what to avoid in the future.

If you want to have a second job, work here.
I worked for Scotiabank for 3 years and received less than $1 increase in salary over those 3 years. It wasn't because I wasn't good at my job. I received the "best of the best" award twice while working there. They do not have full time customer representative positions available so don't expect to ever make enough money to live. I always had to have a second job to make enough to actually pay for things I needed. Their benefits are decent and I did really enjoy the people I worked with. But as a company who's CEO made millions last year, I'd say they pay their employees like absolute garbage. I recently was offered a job from a credit union and was offered $7 more per hour as a starting salary!! Just goes to show how much Scotiabank doesn't care about making sure they're employees actually make a living wage.
Project Leader in Toronto, ON
Not very good place to work.
If you got job here after your long search, do not stick for a longer time. Very very slow career growth.Upper management is not ready to listen to your suggestions.
Customer Care Advisor in Ottawa, ON
Horrible place to work with no seniority status.
Scotia contact center is an awful place to work. You are only a number that gains NOTHING with seniority other then an extra week off work. The new hires make more then the tenured employee! Would you want to come to work everyday knowing your just a number and mean nothing to them?? Vacation requests are on a first come first served basis, so a tenured agent who is off that day, gets shafted due to the fact that a new hire requested first!!
