Work/life balance



Absa Bank Reviews


I'm capable to do anything anytime as long as I'm doing my job.

I'm handling the work pressure everyday and the risk part of it, as we are dealing Saps, Sars, Civil Matters, Fsb, Actt, Maintenance, insolvency and Compensation of Occupational injuries and disease Act. I'm treating my co-workers with Respect, intergrity, service, excellence and stewardship. Helping people to achive their ambition in a right way. I've learned to understand and accomodate everybody and to make sure that there's team work in the department. I'm enjoying the unity between all the co-workers cause nothing goes wrong if we are united. Its when the target its not met in time.

Pros: Opportunities for promotion
Cons: Work/Life Balance

I was nominated to be the branch ambassador.

Working at absa bank has been a huge learning curve for me because its its a big company. Yes there has been tough days especially month ends when the branch if full but with the team that i have, we managed to minimize the work load.My best highlight would be achieving the required target on sales in time.I would describe my work relationship with my co-workers and management the best due to to the fact that we would delegate work amongst each other to make sure all is in order. The only challenge we have is when a teller has a shortage or surplus on their end of day float.

Pros: Iam multi skilled person and a team player.
Cons: Long working hours

a typical working day, achieving my targets as per required and doing more than what is expected of me, being able to meet client expectations and keeping them happy by providing them with the right products that will make life much more simpler for them in the long future. Relations with co-workers: a healthy working relationship is what I strive for, showing respect and listening and bringing up a solution wherever I can. Learnt that a work environment is my first home before my original home, therefore I always strive for peace among myself and my colleagues, I always strive to put the customer at the center of my heart. I enjoy training in other departments as well, just so to gain experience. The most challenging aspect of the job, is when I dont have anything to do, hence I always assist in other departments as well when there's no clients waiting in my department, and from the very same client that I help from the other departments I manage to cross sell from them and get sales out of them.

Pros: being a private banker
Cons: 10 hours
