It is a relatively comprehensive benefits package that covers all the essentials with plenty of additional perks!
Contractor without any vacation pay, no benefits, no packages.
year end bonus is amazing. The unpredictability in hours is tough and often long hours, i felt like i aged 3 years while only working for a little longer than a year.
Limited coverage for health plan
All benefits offered minimized cost to employer. Compared to competing employers (ex. Scotia), BMO certainly offers extremely minimal coverage or lacks coverage all together. RMT (registered massage therapist) is only covered for what is considered 'reasonable' and I believe that even the Sutherland and Chan at just under $90/hr cannot be fully claimed.
There is a revolving door of contract workers, who are treated poorly and do not get any benefits.
Paramedical; given the stress on juniors, there were lack of mental health benefits.
