It is a place where work comes first and employees enjoy the work they are doing and they have fun

I think SBV management should try by all means to take their employees seriously. They must listen to their complains and problems they are facing in the workplace. The whistle blowers must be protected by any means possible because they can avoid robberies and theft. The HR department must be given a full responsibility of their duties not to be on the side of the company because it makes the employees feel that during difficulties they don't have anyone to run to. The branch managers should not make the employees feel uncomfortable at their workplace eg. Firing people unfairly and making them feel that their job is not safe. The overall management at head office must make time for meeting with their employees to find out if there is any problems or any complains from the employees and they must do follow-up on their promises they make ( atleast meeting 2 or 3 times in each branch)

Working at SBV was always . We always considered everyone as family and people there are caring and work as a team

I used to work as a cash processors in note sorting department , it is always hectic and a busy day everyday , especially on the 15th and month ends , those are the times we had to put our hard work and team work together because we usually had to work overtime because of the workload . But we still had fun while working .

Pros

We always tea time in the morning

Cons

We worked long hours sometimes but we always stick to our time which is 9hours because of team work

Poor management. Take your pillow to work as it will become your home.

Work never stops and work is expected to be done in own time. Family time is nearly non existent. Management lie and aren't trustworthy. Hr is barely available

Sbv cash supply chain and logistics

I was transferred to SBV SERVICES DUE TO restructuring at Absa bank. SEC 197. The culture was different and had to adapt and coach staff to build synergy. The work is mainly outbound and there close monitoring of company time and assets had to be a focus. Delivering exellent client service was a key objective.

You work until you're no longer productive. Management always chooses sides and never listen to employees ideas.

Loads of unnecessary overtime, which ends up being unpaid. The workload is way too much, and the pay is too little. The work is stressful and you work underpressure on a daily basis. Forced to report even 5 minutes of late coming. Work like a slave and only earn peanuts
