    I have been working at Scotiabank part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employees are all really nice, I love working with the staff, the customers are 99 percent friendly and love talking. Training is easy, you just have to get used to everything, policies and company values are great, it's a good mix between being professional and friendly.

    Cons

    No Cons to name, I really like working for this bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe do some more simulations for weird things you don't usually get with customers.

    Pros

    Gain experience, have rotational program to train you, great people that willing to teach and promote you. Will assist your career path. Helped my sister and brother in law to get a job. I attained my MBA with this company, my CMA designation, My house, and baby.

    Cons

    20% lower than market salary but will not fire ppl. Allow ppl to look for job even after sold of the department for a duration of 2 years. Treat mother differently, will not give so much challenge to you once you are a mother.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have a annual career plan for staff, even after staff turn to a mother.
