This was the longest I’ve been in the corporate environment, this job was the heart of my experiences and skills.
I spent most of the time on the computer doing data capturing and statistical reporting. I did a lot of telesales, this was when I learned how to deal with different types of customers.

I also did some field work (reaching out to clients to meet their needs).

Team work was the core principle in our branch under a very smooth management.


The salary structure was however commission-based and this was not my strength, earning through 100% commission.
Pros
Ability to grow
Cons
Commission salary structure

After the new financial structure that implemented it was stressful.In the beginning business was good even though there was no basic salary you could see at the end of each month what you have earned.

When the cutoff days are around the corner and you see that you are still behind the Company Target.

The hardest times are when a client book an appointment with you and does not pitch, switch off his/her phone or ignore your calls and does not respond to any of your messages.



Enjoyable moments are when you have validated which means you have reached the company targets.
Pros
Incentives/Bonuses
Cons
none

It was a nice place to work for back in the days, but with Technology shifting/advancement, company politics, company mergers and the current hectic economic climate it became a rat race(adapt or die).
Pros
Place to grow your career
Cons
Promotion is not very easy to obtain for certain individuals

I enjoy working for this institution because I learn new things from time to time
And I know I can handle pressure because we work with people and I can conduct myself professionally under any circumstances


Working under Fnb made me realize am not just any banker am a Doctor financially even by listening clients become happy because you give them attention

That made me a person with strong personality and see things differently
Pros
lunches and breakfast
Cons
we work long hours sometimes
