'We are all doing it': Employees at Canada's 5 big banks speak out about pressure to dupe customers

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator

Employees from all five of Canada's big banks have flooded Go Public with stories of how they feel pressured to upsell, trick and even lie to customers to meet unrealistic sales targets and keep their jobs.

The deluge is fuelling multiple calls for a parliamentary inquiry, even as the banks claim they're acting in customers' best interests.

In nearly 1,000 emails, employees from RBC, BMO, CIBC, TD and Scotiabank locations across Canada describe the pressures to hit targets that are monitored weekly, daily and in some cases hourly.

"Management is down your throat all the time," said a Scotiabank financial adviser. "They want you to hit your numbers and it doesn't matter how."

    I suppose this is part of the allure of dealing with robots rather than unscrupulous people.

    Not that it matters that much.  We can deal with unscrupulous people or we can deal with robots programmed by unscrupulous people.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.
