Not a good place to work for. You don't get what they promise

Not a good place to work for. You don't get what they promise. Always push the AA Down your throat. The head Office is in the worst part of JHB, And then you are forced to work late hours. When I retired, not even a thank you.

Competition of ABSA Guru I love it it taught me know my product and other department.

Before we worked hard the was long que payment too little. In provement now yes ,client serve them self no more long que. Management never recognise employees who worked extra mile, e.g. working with pick staff never got employed but they work hard. Too much protective of permanent staff than pick staff. Enjoyable moment reaching sales target, learning new things every day.
