    I have been working at Scotiabank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I work for the bank for more than 28 years and I had really good time overall. Team work and helping my customers is the most important thing for me. The bank have good products and tools. Salary and advantages are good to.

    Cons

    To much papers to do and missing staff to be able to do good job. It's a lot more stressing than it was few years ago. We really need mor staff.

    Advice to Management

    For new staff, I would suggest to have coaching in branch by someone who is not working there. We just don't have tome to coach them well and customers are paying for that.
