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

Great stepping stone

I have been a great experience, my colleague are great and some managers have been great. I grow so much in my career and from here it can only get better.

Pros: There is growth is you push yourself and name your name known.
Cons: There is lack of job security. We need permanent jobs.

Dealing with clients on a daily basis telephonically about their request, sometimes i come across with difficult client with different quiries and know how to hanle them as client is always right, my relationship with my co-workers is a very good one can communicate with anyone within my department regardless os race. to my current company i have learn to be patience how to deal with difficult client and how to handle pressure. the most thing i enjoy is when i come across with a challenging request where is need to see how to tackle it and make sure at the end of the day my clients are happy and end up sending compliments about my service to my manger.

Pros: dealing with client
Cons: difficult client when they do not understand process of the bank

Ambitious, hard working, competitive achiever

Dealing with operations, dealing with clients and dealing with staff issues and concerns. growing the profit margin by 10% year on year.Teamwork is of utmost importance and effective communication, continuously asking questions in order to make sure that client or staff understand each other. I have learnt not to always speak my mind.I have learnt that one is never too old too try new ideas instead of doing things the way we have done many years ago. I have learn that one has to take a leap of faith and most importantly, invest in your people. grow and continuously motivate and encourage staff as they are the driving force of the ship that we are on.

Pros: Close to home, great clients
Cons: Stuck

It was a very exciting working environment where we were working as a team .Relationship with my co-workers was very good .I learnt how to deal with customers problems.The most thing I enjoy is to wake up early in the morning going to work .The most challenging part was tgen when we do not balance and we should find out what was processed short or over.

Pros: There were promotions

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
