You lay down the Bucks and Marquette basket ball courts.
Event Floor Crew Member (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 8, 2017
The job was great. The basics are; you lay down and pick up both basket ball courts. in between you get to help clean up the stadium with maintenance. The managers know exactly what to do. The company appreciates all of it's employees.

BMO is a great place to work. I absolutely love the diversity and the strive to be one of the best places to work. I admire there desire to get their employees where the employee wants to be and the many opportunities that are available.
Benefits, compensation, opportunity for advancement
Portfolio Manager (Former Employee) – Brookfield, WI – November 22, 2017
I was a long time M&I employee which was a great company to work for. They were very good to their employees, offering great benefits and a very positive company culture. When BMO Harris purchased M&I the merger was very poorly planned. It was a mess of confusion for employees and customers alike. I was amongst the people not immediately laid off but put in a new role with no training and vague expectations. My department was based in Naperville and eventually M&I employees were phased out over time. I assume the wrinkles in this merger were hopefully ironed out as BMO seemed to have good intentions and are now offering a good place to work for employees.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – November 20, 2017
A typical workday for me at BMO Harris Bank consisted of following up to see that defects were resolved and reaching out to management requesting to escalate a concern if a deliverable date was at risk of not being met. I scheduled meetings and was responsible to ensure that our stakeholders were in attendance. This was also the most challenging part of my job because everyone was so busy. However, what I learned is that if you can communicate as to why it is crucial for the stakeholder to attend the meeting they generally attended and was ready and eager to participate. I felt the environment at BMO Harris was pleasant. Most of the people were friendly and many were helpful. I would say this was also probably the most enjoyable part of my job.
Anti - Money Laundering Investigator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 17, 2017
The compensation given isn't on par with their competitors. The work life balance is pretty non existent due to employee turn over. The work load doesn't match up to the amount of days in the amount. The expectation of work completed/completion is to high. Although I an an hourly employee that is suppose to work a 40 hour work week;My coworkers and I are expected to complete at least 50+ client profiles per month. Over the past two years the company has barely given any fringe benefits to the employees i.e. Christmas party.
you get a paycheck, if you suck up to managment you will get promoted.
Contact Centre Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Brookfield, WI – November 15, 2017
Management struggled to provide appropriate coaching, teams too large and management overworked. Leaders did not properly acknowledge issues, rather placed blame. Working with other departments was great, but the contact center is not a place to stay.
Benefits and discounts, networking opportunities, charity
Account Specialist II (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – November 15, 2017

RETAIL RELATIONSHIP BANKER (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – November 13, 2017
high sales goals, low incentives, not to mention they have prehistoric systems that make all takes insanely slow. Logging everything while working at Harris took, way longer then at any other employer.
BPO Paid Loans Processor (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – November 9, 2017
I really don't want to leave there, but the new health plan is forcing me to go elsewhere. I will really miss my friends here. Blaa blaa blaa blaa..... fine, now I reached the minimum words needed to post this stupid thing.
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Wisconsin – November 7, 2017
Its a struggle. Not as much fun as they make it sound to be. The work life there could be better. There isnt much opportunity for overtime. There is a mandatory, un-paid, lunch break if you work 6 or more hours. So that blows. Ive worked for better companies.
