What can I say?

There have been a lot of comments regarding CIBC vs BMO. I am aware that BMO made the top 100 on Maclean's list this year and CIBC did not.

But as within any large organization, when working in pocket environments, it's a toss up as to what the management is like. The only way to truly find out is to work there, but I'd recommend if she finds out which branch she would be working at first, and the physically go into the branch, go up to a teller and ask what it's like to work there.

As for the casual vs. the part time/full time; I'd say take the full time. The casual is a "we'll call you if we need you!" type job. If you decline too many, she would be dismissed.

Part time is something like a minimum of 20-25 hrs a week which is great provided that she can work in the evenings and/or weekends.

I can only speak for CIBC, it can be a great place to work, but again, it's what you make it. If you get lucky with good management as I have been in the past; you can have a lot of fun and see lots of advancement.

If you're unlucky...well...

Good Luck to your G/F!

Cheers!
Tano!

casual = no guaranteed hours
part-time = guaranteed x hours per week... typically 15 - 25
full-time = guaranteed 40hrs per week

G/F took BMO's offer, based on the input from this thread, and other factors such as wage, F/T position versus Casual. Thanks again.

Being in consulting, I have worked with a number of banks and each bank is very different. I think your girlfriend needs to decide which bank culture she fits better in. Think about the interviewers - did she like the CIBC or BMO ones more? Each company and bank has their pros and cons .. at the end of the day, it's fit and career development potential that means the most. But in my humble opinion, I think if you prove yourself .. there is always potential to grow professionally .. no matter where you are.

Canada would never allow that. They would unionize, strike. The NDP would make huge noise.

Big businesses rarely win in Canada. That's one thing Canadians don't have to worry about. They'll raise big business taxes and force them to hire underqualified Canadians before they'll eliminate jobs.

It's like all the crazy people here who think Pharmacy jobs will be eliminated. It's Vancouver, not San Francisco. It took them 10 years to figure out how scanners for public transportation would work. You think they're going to automate Pharmacies? Face With Tears Of Joy
