    I have been working at Scotiabank

    Pros

    Looks good on resume. Recruiters and head hunters are starting to contact us for better roles at other companies even during Corvid19

    Cons

    Bad leadership. Cuts are usually on that backs of contractors. When the bank announced extra “stress days” for their fulltime staff, and $500 to buy extra equipment this came on the back of their contractors in the form of furlough days. Yes contractors are forced to take 20 furlough (lay-off days) for fiscal-year 2020, plus an additional 4 “downtime” days (which were not officially communicated but were forced to take). The bank is also trying to slap its contractors with 10-15% paycuts and layoffs because we are not FTEs. Some of us have been on contract for 4-8 years straight and promised FTE status but it never happened. The bank can cut us easily without any worry as we won’t get a pension, severance or even EI got that matter. They will be forcing the contractors they want to sit on their hands for 14 weeks and recall them (a legal thing to keep contractors unstable). Yes Barb Mason promised no cuts this fiscal, that’s for FTEs only. Contractors are being cut and the remaining will be told to take a pay cut of 10-15% as profits are down during Corvid19. FTEs should worry as they will face cuts in the new fiscal year
