Productive and fun workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Absa for me was the best company to work for with huge opportunities for growth, work life balance was great and amazing working environment.

Absa for me was the best place to work in, I enjoyed serving the clients at customer service, it was a wonderful experience, the work life balance was amazing, I had a wonderful line manager who was always willing to help and till this day, I wish I could find myself working there once again but in a much better position than the one in which I was.

Pros

Opportunity for growth and job security

Cons

Dealing with irritating and dissatisfied customers

Stressful & Confusing

The workplace is very stressful and unhealthy. Top management is not aware of what is going on in the front line space and also does not prioritize the branch colleagues.

Regret working here

Working at the absa branch is the worst ever, customers are rude to you, you work overtime and don't get paid for it, no recognition for good service, poor salary, poor working hours and shifts, no team building events, cheap Christmas parties, no time to socialize with colleagues, hard labour, being treated like a thief by management, I will never work for this company ever again, I don't recommend anyone working here, and if you do, GOOD LUCK, you going to need it.

Pros

No bank chargers

Cons

No breaks, working hours, salary

Absa branch is all about sales and fun.

My day starts with a meeting to discuss sales stats. Sales is the most impportant part of the bank. Very supportive management. Respect is very vital and the most important value. Walking the banking hall for most of the day. Talking to different people everyday.
