taking advantage of new immigrants

Project Manager (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

Proshmmm - Scene points with my free banking account needed for payroll??

Consall the other CONs listed in reviews are bang-on accurate. Do read them. Management issues, old guard, no innovation, shabby offices, low pay, etc... Essentially, a few rich dictators taking advantage of the working class - and that working class is different than in any other bank.

On the surface, seems great that Scotia is such a great multi-cultural employer but the new immigrants are taken advantage of. Some are very skilled and working for peanuts. Look at those comments by happy employees - see the trend in spelling/grammar errors by those with English as a second language? They are happily oblivious to what good employers look like in Toronto. Glad they have personally advanced. Knew many who worked so hard to get educated and immigrate. Just hope they don't stay in Scotia long...God forbid they become one of the lifers. Just compare - visit a Scotia, BMO, CIBC, TD and RBC branch in your hood. Which place makes you feel like you're on the set of "That 70's Show"? - costumes included!

Advice to Senior Managementget out of the boardroom and take a look around....

    Great corporate culture, if you want to enjoy banking go to Scotiabank

    Personal Banking Officer (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

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


    Pros: A great team environment, and it actually is very much team centered. They have a great rewards system, you get appreciated for your efforts by… Cons: Lots of paperwork! But that would be the same with every bank. The pay is not that high compared to a similar job in a… Advice to Senior Management: Perhaps if you re-program the systems we use, it could be made a lot more efficient. Training can be improved, the courses online to teach… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
