My typical day at work it was in 2014 whereby I have to help more than 387 customers alone in the office. On the pensioners day payments. I have to manage the queue and the cash in the same time. I was counting the cash using my hands because there was not cash counting machine. I closed the office so late at 18:00 evening. When it comes in management is was so difficult because my office was a single handed office meaning I was working alone as a Teller, as a Cashier and a Branch manager as well. I have learned how to manage cash and to control the queue. I have learned to manage time and my work. Customers enjoyed my services very much and they were even asking that how do I hope with such a lots of work like that because I have to serve them and respond to my email, opening the incoming mail, dispatching the mail, do a banking, opening the accounts, doing some enquiries for dormant accounts and closed accounts and also making a follow up for track and trace parcels alone.
Pros
sometimes a one hour lunch
Cons
long queues and long hours

I had a very informative days of work while acting as Area Manager. I learnt many of managerial skills and presentations about business performance and managing others. overall management skills applying in the work place learned how to work together with colleagues and treating them with dignity and respect as they are the most powerful assets of the company. the hardest part of the job is to work for lengthy hours daily and not well remunerated. enjoy interacting with customers on a day to day periods.
Pros
Award ceremonies

long hours

Confidential, friendly and very productive. To discipline misbehaving employee. Chatting with our customers especially the senior citizens.
