Manage lifecycle of an employee from end to end.Upskilling different Human Resources Business Partners on the self service portal (ESS)Keeping track of all the queries via team track.Capture and process transactional documents. Maintenance of personal record folders.

Standard bank culture and policies guides all staff members to behave inside and outside working environment. Hiring strategy is questionable and not consider the qualifications staff members obtained or achieved.

The department I was in was not nice to work in. The pressure was sometimes too much to handle. Managers only focused on stats and making the customer happy which ends up resulting in the bankers being neglected.
Pros
A lot of room for growth
Cons
Long hours

Great place to work and meet lots of new people. Great culture, plenty of independence. Most enjoyable is the attitude of fellow colleagues and their willingness to help . Management might not be too transparent and willing to assist with ideas. Days are always busy.

My time as an employee at SBSA was short but enjoyable. I began as a night shift collections agent in the SBSA Super Block call center in June 2006. After a short period, I was asked to attend the Team Leader training course, after completing the course I was encouraged to then apply for the night shift team leader position and was promoted within a year.

High demand for cloud-based microservices and technology but very little understanding and support when it comes to supporting such an infrastructure. Windows and MAC-based environment with very little if any Linux Desktop support. Development is primarily aimed at Linux cloud solutions.
