Standard Bank is a good company to work for I have learned so much from the company and it has helped me to build my confidence in a positive way, I have achieved a lot like I now have my regulatory examination certificate for sale representative and I am now studying towards my certificate in banking via cornerstone. Even though standard bank is going through retrenchment process and I'm one of the unlucky employees the truth is I have gained a lot based on the experience.
Pros
Staff rates
Cons
Working on Sundays

typical day at work its only when we having system glitch as we also do customer facing and its looks a bit disappointing having a customer coming here and the next thing they must be returned as there's other things to be accessed on the system and cant be done manually. Our culture is great team work and transparency. I personally do no think there;s hardest part of job so long as we work as a team , we always conquer. recognition and rewards.
Pros
day off
Cons
long hours
