    Former Employee - Credit Card Associate 

    I worked at BMO Financial Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, great culture. Training period was great the people you work with. Benefits are good as well.

    Cons

    This is going to be a little long... Mainly they hire at a monthly basis because they know the turnover rate for these type of positions is high. Be prepared to work hard in order to achieve targets. Training period itself is 2 months with 1 month in class and 1 month on floor taking calls. I felt that the amount of work you were doing did not equal to pay. They put this euphoria in your head that this job is great and you can expect to move up (when its really not like that). Career growth in these positions is lateral with around a $1000 increase in pay. Be prepared to take a lot of constructive criticism from your managers because especially if it does take you longer to get the hang of the job. My final point is expectation. They base your performance too heavily on your scorecard which consists of customer reviews and average handle time (the amount of time it takes for you speak to customers on the phone). The sales targets for these type of jobs is insanely stressful and sometimes impossible to keep up with

    I worked at BMO Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Only pro that comes to mind are the benefits.

    Cons

    The bank's only priority is to the share holder. Promotions go to those outside of BMO, specifically TD or to those not qualified. Sales targets are unrealistic and much of management close their eyes to unethical sales tactics to meet targets.
