I have been working at BMO Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)
My co workers are great. The clients I've been helping have been amazing I've built great relationships with them. The hours are good for family and life balance.
The incentive plan went south after they hired a company that had no idea what they were doing. They are now trying to fix it but most great bankers left due to that risk they took. They try to sugar coat why they did it when they can't admit they messed up. They also need to update the technology in the branches.
Advice to Management
Pay your employees more you get better results. Invest in technology that relates to the big 3 banks. Have the ATMs cut off time for deposits not be on Illinois time.
I applied online. I interviewed at BMO Financial Group (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.
They emailed me two days after I applied online. We set up a call where we went over my resume and why I wanted to work for BMO. She explained the role is for a sales track, not a finance career track.
