I love working for BMO. Job culture is very supportive and company really cares for their employees. Benefits are good, match 401k, paid holidays and enough PTO.

Pays to suffer

Prepare to be incredibly over worked and micro-managed. Yes, they pay you well. And the benefits are good, but very pricey. Bosses are inconsiderate and do not provide any support for growth. Good ole boys club.

Banking wasn't fun - it was boring. Management was goofy and never made the day any better. I'd like to think that I did a good job in my time there.

A Terrible Sales Job

A super weird work environment. The day started by drilling sales techniques with coworkers as others watched and critiqued. Very passive aggressive atmosphere. Extreme favoritism. Management wouldn't intervene when customers were inappropriate. I could not recommend a job less.


management, work environment, actually a sales job

Challenging but rewarding

If you like a challenge this job is great. Pay is good, good benefits and bmo is a very generous company to work for. The job itself isn’t “hard” but there is soooo much to learn which brings on the challenge. I enjoyed the job a lot

No room for advancement, outdated systems, management, branch locations

Antiquated, outdated branch locations and especially computers and technology systems, little or no opportunity to advance or learn on the job, close minded local and district management, on the job to many years and only want to do things “the way we’ve always done it” Not responsive to market, customers, and especially not to team members. There are many other financial institutions and credit unions he will do much better off with one of them if you are seeking a career in this field!!!

Amazing Staff and Wonderful Work Environment

Excellent Work ethics and you feel a sense of belonging each day you walk into the branch. You get amazing coaching and the company even assigns you a mentor that is an experienced banker to help you succeed. Ever since joining BMO I have learned alot and I encourage anyone to apply for positions here at BMO Bank

Good benefits

I take calls for all hours of my job, upwards of 100 calls in a busy day sometimes. Good pay and benefits. However very stressful and burnout happens by the second day of the week.

Working with others was enjoyable

Working with others was enjoyable. The environment was comfortable. It felt like home, and I belong. Managment was reliable and there to help when help was needed. Overall nice respectable place to work. The work was challenging at times, but working with others help it to be manageable.

Its good at first....

Later you see that BMO Harris Bank only tries to sell products there really not about culture as they say from my own experience. The market president doesnt think of realistic goals. But very good company with benefits not really anything hard any one can do the job fairly easy.

Diverse Culture, Great Place to Work

Working in the branch does have high sales goals however BMO does give you the tools and coaching to achieve those goals. Very inclusive and diverse culture. Bmo really takes care of its employees. Pay is above other banks especially when considering quarterly and year end bonus. Great place to work!

Unrealistic expectations

Great pay and benefits, however unrealistic set goals and I felt there were some unethical practices due to management. A high turn over rate and ongoing training

Poor management

I hired in 2019. I was to be trained at another branch, drove there for 2 weeks and no training. Of course they made that person a manager and ended up at the branch I worked at. This person was hateful, angry all the time and very unprofessional to staff and clients. BMO needs to get a training area for new employees with skilled people to train new hires.




Work -life balance terrible

Is really becoming a bank of pushing products

They say that they care for holistic conversations and finding needs but in the background they have fire drills when gaps in sales are happening.Regardless of your activities if your not producing then your on the hook for bad coaching.

Great work/life balance

I’ve worked for BMO for over two years and enjoy the company and it’s benefits. I also enjoy being able to work from home 100% of the time. Advancement opportunities are there as well.
