MY job at standard bank required me to work with money and and customer accounts, end of day cash up as well as customer service and sales. The staff were like a family, we treated each other with respect. The workplace was warm and welcoming but at times stressful. For me the hardest part of my job was dealing with cash and making sure that your accounts balance at the end of the day. The one thing i enjoyed about working for standard bank was the type people you get to meet every day.

I would say my day to day job is not so bad, it is only rude customers you need to know and learn how to deal with them. most employee feel that the company lets the customers to abuse us as we are not even allowed to answer back, even if they speak to you like you are nothing, i would like to work for a company who will protect its employee when required. when we are wrong we must be dealt with. Organisation need to check their staff members with regards to education levels and move people accordingly. it is fun to be with fellow workers, we do not often receive recognition only when sales are done , even the bonus we receive i feel it is unfair. we should be rewarded greatly. i love Foreign exchange and would like to learn more or even grow further.
Pros
BE sometimes
Cons
Medical aid

standard bank was an eye opener for me, as it was only my second job after high school. There I learnt a lot, in terms of time management, the ability to deal with different kinds of people (from customers to the staff). The hardest part of the job, was surprisingly the most enjoyable part for me, which was balancing the till at the end of each work day.

Hectic days I learned how to handle large amounts of cash and be disciplined. I learned to understand people and their needs. Management was the best I would hardly say that there was culture Hardest part was having to tolerate difficult customers and the pressure of having to keep up with the banks targets. Best part of the day was getting leads
Pros
Meeting lots of people
Cons
Small salary
