    I have been working at Scotiabank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff rate, staff accounts, great team work environment, opportunities to learn new things, some benefits, annual bonus

    Cons

    Very little pay for such a high stress and high responsibility position. Lack of sufficient opportunities for career advancement. The department is almost always short-staffed which leads to a highly inconsistent lunch schedule and a total lack of breaks. Highly stressful training process, which felt more like a survival of the fittest challenge. Very outdated technology and problematic communication between branches makes the job even harder. Expected to work full time hours for a part time compensation and benefits. The workload has been gradually increasing, while many positions were eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting support staff positions. Be honest with your subordinates about work expectations and objectives. Strive for a long term efficiency. Give full time positions and promotions to your most loyal and performing staff members. If nothing above is done, the talent will flee.

    I worked at Scotiabank (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation-better than the majority of the banks, the colleagues you work with are usually very helpful and nice, very flexible with your work schedule and break times.

    Cons

    Management is very slow in adapting to changes, they won’t let you “climb the ladder” unless you ask first and then they are very, very slow in reviewing your work, the bank is very reactionary in retail banking, meaning they see what other banks do and then they try to imitate, they never innovate, tellers are usually very old, young people may discourage from working as they never see promotions

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talents, give incentives to people. Other big banks are years ahead in that category. Let people get promotions if they are yong and seres I gotta or they will leave.
