Difficult to achieve their expectations within a 40 hour week

Although the benefits of free banking and staff rates for borrowing are great, management is out of touch with what the sales staff is facing. You are told you are to provide advice to clients and do what is best for them but ultimately you are "graded" on how many units you sold in each meeting you hold.

If you are sales driven and have passion to deliver meaningful advice to your customers then this is one of the best place to work. Keep in mind you have targets to achieve, it's always a good idea to keep up with them on weekly or biweekly basis.

The typical day at work was getting ready to meet 3 or 4 clients per day. There was always lots of tasks to do, from preparing for the next meeting to structuring mortgages for approval. Sales targets were high for both investments and loans. This role requires someone who is excellent at multitasking.

You have to assist clients and sell to them. All companies claim to do what is best for the client but truthfully they want only what benefits themselves. I did learn a lot in terms of the banking industry.

Great, fun environment. Salaries are low, no job security. There is not many job vacancies or room to grow. It is very sales oriented place, the always expect everyone to be upselling which can get stressful sometimes
