Our Stories

We love hearing stories from our customers about how ATB was able to create happiness for them. But we also love hearing about how ATB created happiness for our team members too. Below are some quotes from team members that well, make us happy.

Re: Our in-house leadership development programs
“Masterful Leadership is one of the BEST treasures that has ever come into my life, my career, my spirit and soul. Timely, for sure. Challenging, to the max! And life altering, definitely to the max!”
~ Sandy Broadbent

Re: Flexible work arrangements
“I came back to ATB after almost two years at home with my kids, and because of technology, I am able to have a three-day schedule in the office, allowing me to spend time with my girls while on-call Monday and Friday. This job gives me the best of both worlds, and leaves me fully engaged in every role I play at home, and at ATB.”
~ Megan Despanque

Re: Our awards for top team members
“My Market VP, manager and boyfriend collaborated to throw me a surprise party to announce I was a President’s League winner. It was so special because I knew the celebration was made just for me—especially the tiara, pink slippers and princess theme!”
~ Azi Sadighi

Re: ATB 101
“I never felt like 'just a summer student' at ATB. Even though it was challenging at times to balance every day tasks with the capstone project, I had the chance to be involved with meaningful work. I was pushed to get out of my comfort zone, to connect with people throughout ATB, to work as part of a team to develop a realistic business solution, and to practice presenting in front of our executives. It was a summer experience that I couldn't get anywhere else!"                                              ~Lauren Phillips

Re: Our commitment to Albertan communities
“One of the most fun times I had giving back with ATB was for Easter Seals, decorating their camp lodge for Halloween and the Christmas holidays. Knowing our efforts created an enjoyable environment in which attendees could be themselves without being stereotyped or judged, was so rewarding.”
~ Daniel Leung
