    I have been working at BMO Harris Bank full-time (more than 5 years)


    Best in class health, dental, vision, life insurance benefits out there. Work/life balance second to none. 136 hours of vacation time off the bat per year for full-time employees. 80 additional hours for sick and illness occurrences.

    It's ultimately a sales job. So persistence in WANTING to EXCEED goals is where you'll make money in commission. Commission for bankers is paid every month, which is great because your month to month cash flow can potentially be higher and that's what makes this job more rewarding. In the banking industry, only Chase Bank pays its bankers every month in commission.


    Above average administrative work on a day to day basis for a sales job. But I guess that comes with the territory of having an above average base salary for a salary plus commission job. Micro managing is practiced. This is where your patience will be tested. Your relationship with your manager, or who your manager is, or simply how you play your cards in the "corporate" world will either make or break you in this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BMO has an old school Chase sales approach. Very bad tactic. Focus more on "wowing" the customer with service, build rapport and trust that way, and that approach guide and lead your sales. Decrease sales goals, maybe even adjust the pay out scales accordingly to avoid higher commission checks need be to mKe yo the difference. Pump the breaks a tad on the micro managing. Realistically no one likes it, and it creates a high turnover ratio and makes your place a revolving door.

    Positive Outlook
