With the cost of living being fairly high in the city, having a job that pays well isn't just an asset — it's often a necessity. If you're currently on the hunt for a job, Desjardins is hiring in Montreal, and the salary is as attractive as the benefits.
If you haven't heard of Desjardins, it's the largest cooperative financial group in Canada and one of the country's largest employers with over 47,000 employees.
It was also rated by Mediacorp Canada as one of Canada's top 100 employers in 2020 so, in all likelihood, it's a pretty good place to work.
Right now, Desjardins is looking for people to work for its call centre, and the gist of the job is client relations work.
The role comes with some pretty impressive perks, without requiring a university degree.
Both full-time and part-time positions are available.
There's even the possibility of working from home if that appeals to you, which is a huge advantage during a pandemic.
The wage starts at $22.12 an hour plus a potential shift bonus, where applicable.
To apply, you must meet the following requirements:
Have a high school diploma or equivalent
Bilingualism (French and English)
Skilled with the use of technologies (web and mobile)
