I started at standard bank with no experience but they took me in sent me to a training and I was paid during that time they made me permanent and then later on showed me how to work at enquiries there is growth if you are dedicated to your work and they push those who want to stay behind and their aim is to see everybody in better position than telling
Free lunches some times
Was employed at Standard Bank for close to 5 years. Survived 3 restructures / sec 189 processes. Yes the bank needs to move with the times and hence structure changes etc but very little support from the management once you are served with a sec 189 letter. Whilst working for SBSA applied for more than 100 internal vacancies with no success. Very poor career development and upskilling. When there is restructures and you don't have the skills to fit in, its almost like its your fault. Yet as an organisation they did not take the initiative to provide you with the training and skills required for the "jobs of the future"
Good Remuneration and Benefits
Restructuring and Uncertainty
The company’s values were lived up to and there were growth opportunities where in you were given a chance to draft your Personal Development and a chance to gain experience of the field you want to work in.
Enough rest days
Frequent campaigns in a short space of time.

Jobs at Standard Bank
The bonus is GREAT. The pecks are great. The working hours are flexible if you are not client facing, work from home is allowed which is great for work life balance.
Bonus, reduced interest rates, work life balance is great. Some departments encourage work from home.
The structure is too layered.
Working at Standard Bank was an invaluable learning experience. I felt like a valued member of an exceptionally diverse, professional and winning team. Reasonable working conditions, good benefits, professional management. The company offered good benefits, growth opportunities , the salary was not bad.
Work hard to achieve and lot challenges that you have to overcame, fun to work for the companies but you will stay in one level until you get bored.
I like to work for the company ,what I don't like you will stay in one position for more than 5 years.And salary is not going anywhere.In my branch I think there is lot favoritism from managerial.Imagine
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.
