  1. "Attitudes need to change"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Compliance Manager in Toronto, ON
    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Scotiabank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Big bank. Good work life balance, good benefits. Modern workspace.

    Cons

    Respect comes only with a bigger title. People are fearful of making mistakes. Very low morale at lower level. VPs and Directors make all decisions, everyone else is essentially powerless. Big company but people are resistant to change and still trying to operate like a small office and afraid of relying too much on technology. Some higher ups have bully like personalities.

    Advice to Management

    Change your organizational structure. Have a coaching culture. Give everyone respect regardless of rank.

    I have been working at Scotiabank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company is very sales and customer focused. Pretty good benefits and salary is decent.

    Cons

    Little to no team engagement activities for employees and the adherence system doesn't set you up for success.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations must be realistic. Alot of the things they required you to do contradict itself when it comes to customer focus expectations.

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and perks. Access to great events.

    Cons

    A Change in culture took place - away from caring about its employees to caring more about profits.

    Hire better middle managers rather than just promoting long-time employees who don't deserve the position

    When new manager is being placed in branch see how they jive with staff and check in on those branches . Ie Dvp should check in . Bc people will leave if this continues

    "Bilingual Client service at Scarborough contact center"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Scotiabank part-time

    Pros

    Good benefits but poor base salary for the pressure you get there.

    Cons

    Immediate Management is to harsh and too much micromanagement. Managers are on the neck of client services specialist for meeting target. Workers are just numbers there at contact center. I don't miss that place.

    Advice to Management

    Too much pressure put lots of stress on client service professional hence poor performance. Less micro management would make it a better workplace.

    I have been working at Scotiabank part-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, great co-workers, good opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Proceedures and policies constantly being changed, very hard to keep up. Depending on the branch you can end up with very little support from supervisors/peers. CR hours constantly dwindling, extremely hard to come across a full time hours position as a CR unless you have been with the bank for a long time. Hiring is all done through a recruiting department, you won’t get to meet anyone you will be working with until...

    Advice to Management

    Better training and support for new employees. Recognize when positions needs to be filled and fill them quickly and efficiently as to reduce staffing issues.
