    I have been working at Scotiabank for more than 3 years


    Good benefits, and share ownership program.


    Workload, technological infrastructure very dated, slow and frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technological infrastructure to bring useful tools, and system stability to branches.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Scotiabank.

    Interview Details

    I went to their on campus hiring event and applied online through our university website. I got an interview from the human resource. The first round was with human resource, and the second round was with two managers from related groups. Both the interviewers were very friendly and professional. Typical questions related to risk management and finance. It didn't take very long. I think it took us 30 to 40 minutes.
