If you're lucky enough to get permanent employment, it would be a great place to work. However, if you are on a fixed-term contract, management tends to forget to motivate for budget for contract extensions.
Pros
Canteen, Working hours, facilities
Cons
Lack of long-term planning for contractors

In general Absa is a great place to work. In my current position I've grown tremendously in terms of analytical thinking and Excel. The workplace culture is friendly and productive, and our HR team is in the habit of sharing knowledge. In my opinion, the hardest part of most jobs is the uncertainty of the future in terms of the current volatile economic climate. What I really enjoy and appreciate about my job is the fact that I'm able to work from home. The time I would have spent in traffic, is now spent being productive and working. I am currently in the market for a permanent position in the HR environment and would consider any suitable office-based positions.
Pros
Working from home
Cons
Uncertainty in the job market

My day starts with a meeting and plan my day. It is important to plan your day so that you don't have to run around looking for sales. Look at my diary and appointments, if I have them I would call my clients and confirm our appointment. I have leaned to respect my clients not only because they paid my salary but also because I was solutioning their lifes, they came to the bank with problems and leave with solutions and that made m happy.The hardest thing about my job was when I was unable to assist customers and they would leave the bank with sad faces.most enjoyable was when I could assist my customers and also make sales for my targets.
Pros
Staff trainings
Cons
working on saturdays

At my place of work, we operate in an open planned floor. Where staff and managers, are all easily accessible to each other. There is a lot to learn, but once mastered, challenges lessen and it becomes boring, having to do the same thing over and over everyday.
Pros
Great location in relation to my family home (Auckland Park).
Cons
75% of the months work is all received during the last week of the month.

In light of my knowledge and experience in Banking and Customer service, I feel I would be a good asset to the company. I have put measures in place to easily assist me in identifying possible fraudulent activities through the monitoring of accounts. I am a dependable individual. I always put the customer’s needs first, willing to go the extra mile for all customers. I am reliable, always looking for ways to improving customer service and I have earned a reputation as a creative problem solver. The opportunity presented here excites me. My substantial experience will help me to know how to approach similar situations. I am not afraid to seek advice relating to the job role and accept criticism from others to help me grow. One of my major strengths is my ability to work hard and I work well individually and in a team. Once I make a decision to accomplish something, it gets done and to the best of my ability I bring an additional quality that makes me the best person for the job because of my passion for excellence. I am committed to producing truly world class results and customer service.
Pros
Work flexi hours.
Cons
Long hours at times.

A typical day work would include proceccesing payment and clients documents, book deals for clients, ensure documents are correct and signed by relevant parties I've received training on anti money laundering, sanctions, anti bribery and corruption. The hardest part was all the tests we had to take for anti money laundering and other training received The most enjoyable part were the team building activities
