I was productive and willing to work under pressure.

I was earning on commission and the target was very high and it was not achievable cause I was working at rural area. It was difficult for me but I was trying all my level best to achieve my target.

productive and challenging

my day to day work includes dealing with clients, ensuring that clients are always happy and satisfied. making sure queries are resolved with turn around time. ensuring tellers' till are on balance position before they close their tills. I ensure that i balance the books daily and they need to be on balance position. anything outstanding for 2 to 3 days needs to be escalated. My job improved my patient. i am more patient than before because i work daily with clients. I have also learned more about financial industry even though i did Media studies at school. getting a promotion was prove that anything is possible. Our management is the best. they sometimes do mistakes but it is acceptable because they are human. they communicate with us. they are more concerned about the employees. my hardest part of the job is getting massive queries from our top clients. i need t make sure those queries are resolved within 3 days and ensure the client is satisfied. these top client do not send one query at a time but send multiple queries. when they are not happy with feedback i need to make sure i re-investigate and give feedback according to how the client needs it. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the client is happy. even though i am not a customer facing employee, communicating with them online and hearing them appreciating my efforts enlighten my day. Also, my team. we have the craziest team. they are hard working and support each other.

Horrible place to work

Learned how to interact with different people on a daily basis. Workload was too much especially month end. The management had no necessary management qualifications.

Cons

Overtime sometimes not paid

Productive and challenging

Being yourself and aiming for the best. reach your daily target through time management, team work and pro-active. Know your daily work schedule and challenges, to have a crisis where you need help from your senior and they're not available. Knowing your position and doing best.

Stressful and mental exhausting

Highly competitive and target driven. Appraisals are aligned to suit the employer therefore renumeration and increase were minimal. Victimisation were rife if you belong to the union. Redtape in regards to policies and procedures.

Pros

On the job training

Cons

Mentally exhausting

nice working place

standard bank was my first job as a learnership, we had to learn all de departments jobs, it was great experience. The hardest part was having to face queries while you still learn, and no one seeming to want to help.

Sales agent

The culture of multicomplex and working with people on daily basis as the client of the bank has been a very big milestone in my life and career as it has exposed me to various trade and opportunity to understand different cultures and people dynamics. They have taught me about been a team player and been able to work independently with a minimum supervision. selling the bank's product was so good as I have learned to uphold the values and qualities as per institutional code of conduct

Pros

Workshops

Cons

U have to be on your own
