What did your company expect from you as a 2nd/3rd year co-op student?
They definitely didn't expect much in the first 4 months. The first 4 months are focused a lot on exposing you to the project and getting to know the people you'll be working with. As you progress through the year, they'll begin to expect more and towards the end, you're pretty much treated like a full-time employee.
Did you like your overall PEY experience? Why or why not?
I personally really enjoyed my PEY experience. It was a great learning experience and the team I worked with was very supportive. Given that the work is in a bank, there were short periods of downtime where things were slow. Overall though, things were fast-paced and changing.
One fun fact about your job?
The building I was located in (Commerce Court North) was the tallest building in the British Empire/Commonwealth for roughly three decades.
