This company has a culture of favoritism even if you working hard you will not be recognised if you don't know the right people, it's stressful as they no longer focus on the customers and customer service but are more worried about sales
Pros
Staff rates on loans
Cons
No growth

Best experience I've ever had, management pays attention to the extra work you put in, everyone is very helpful, everyone is always willing to make everything a team effort. the culture is lively, fun and motivating. they push you to be the best that you could be and they pay you for any time spent over your hours. beautiful time spent there.

Shifts are difficult when you have a family but the good thing is there are great benefits. Not a great place to get promoted unfortunately as there is a lot of bias.

After working at standard bank for almost three years, i had made a decision to resign. Staff benefits are not as good as people think, management are not qualified to be in their current roles. You miss internal interviews because management are too scared that you will outgrow them. I was sent to various branches to assist because I had a vehicle, however there were others who held the same contract as I did. I was advised to work in that specific branch for only two weeks because nobody else could work, it was gone down to the third week and I was still at the branch that I was sent to, where my car had gotten stolen. Management showed no compassion what so ever. There is far too much gossiping between leaders, leaders gossiping over telephonic calls, I think that the head of standard bank need to listen in on their calls to see what they do all day. It has truly been a horrible experience for me, and I really do hope that nobody goes through what I have been through in this place. I was nothing but an A number. However don't give up guys study hard, pray even harder, people will always want to hurt you and bring you down, but God will always rise above and bring you up. Don't let the enermy defeat you. Standard bank may not pay for your studies, but you have the power to pay for it yourself, so do it and grow wherever you are. To all those that are unhappy working at standard bank, my advise trust in God, do your part and he will do the rest, God never fails. I made a decision to leave even without another job, because of how frustrated I was, how hurt I was, - more...
Pros
None what so ever
Cons
Work over time, they complain to pay, unqualified management, more focus on sales than anything else. I could go on and on...

my first stable job at Standard bank. a typically work day is making sure all queries were dealt with and up to date. achieving targets and assisting diverse people with their accounts. i have also enjoyed working as a teller. they people that i have worked with were always motivating and ensuring i do the best. The hardest part of being a teller was not balancing at times.
