Fun and hard work

Absa was the best place I ever worked for. They push you to your limits to get the best out of you as an employee. I miss working for them and my biggest wish is to go back. With all the hard work of every day you also have fun. Fun as a team aswell as fun all together with all the employees. Everydays hard work will be challanged against the previous days work... it was awesome. With the right people and the best managament, we were the best team ever.

Extra hard work near month end to push for target and also to get the best turn around times.

Productive and fun workplace

I had a great time working there. I learnt a lot about customer care services. I learnt how to navigate inside a customer's account using IMSP (Intergrated Management Systems Program). Scripts were provided for phone lines and emails in order to make the tasks easier for us and to properly assist customers. I would not mind working there again.

Energetic, Relaxed, Goal driven

Casual wear was a thing everyday. Learnt leadership skills, programming skills and team work. Management was relaxed, as long as we do our work at the end of the day, they didn't have an issue. Phoning Irate clients was the hardest part. The people I worked with were the most enjoyable part of working for Absa.

Need to know what role they hiring and get the correct person for that role.

When using contract houses make sure the agent has screened the candidates for the relevant position. ABSA has a tendency to micro manage their staff, we are all adults, trust the people that you hire and make sure they are the correct people for the correct role advertised. Stay away from favoritism amongst staff and treat people humanely!!!!

Productive and collaborative environment

As a manager of employees I was responsible for planning, directing and overseeing the daily operations of the team. I develop professional relationships with stakeholders and respond to their requirements for advice, deliverables and counsel when required. Working alongside my colleagues to ensure timescales and quality was adhered to. There were always collaborative moments that took place regarding new products, services or advancements that will be taking place.
