Fellow co-workers very supportive. Great place to meet new friends (which later become almost like family)

Start work at approx 7.45am Check emails from clients. Respond,either via e-mail or telephone, and carry out instructions if any. 9.00am. Bank opens - Attend to walk-in clients. Conduct interviews and explaining different products available according to client's needs, prepare documentation when new account is being opened. Attend to applications for overdraft facilities from clients After bank has closed, open accounts on system. Pro-active calling marketing products on offer, attempting to expand client's banking profile. Leave work at approx 17.45 - 18.00pm Gained a lot of experience attending various courses on offer - People Management, Collateral, Selling Skills, Investments, etc A lot of chopping and changing of branch management in view of pressure situations. Managers just not coping and applying for other jobs with the organisation. Co-workers - the best part of the jobs. Understanding , supportive, team-players. Hardest part of job was attaining (unrealistically) set targets. Unrealistic in the sense that top management sometimes (or so it seemed) would not realise that we are currently experiencing a global recession and putting staff under severe pressure to sell. Most enjoyable part of the job was the co-workers who you could always depend upon to be supportive.

Pros

At times being spoilt with free lunches, breakfast, ten-pin bowling (as part of teambuilding efforts)

Cons

Long hours (although you are not allowed to record, these as you are scheduled to work a certain of hours per day/week/cycle.
