    I have been working at Coast Capital Savings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Purpose-built culture allows for employees to move around in the company to find the best fit.
    Benefits are excellent.
    Best managers I've ever had. They are trained well.
    Help based approach instead of sales based, so we can live and work our values

    Cons

    Cannot yet relocate to areas in BC outside of the Lower Mainland or Island, or other provinces.

    Advice to Management

    Learn different styles of managing to properly manage everyone on the team, not just the ones you mesh with.
    Collaborate, don't impose.
    Don't forget to have fun.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Coast Capital Savings (Vancouver, BC) in August-2014.

    Interview

    The process was a complete joke. The recruiter forgot about our scheduled telephone interview, then didn't even have my resume out for our re-scheduled interview. She didn't listen to what I was saying and jumped to conclusions. On a whole it was very unprofessional.
