Great Experience need new Opportunities

The area I live in limits my opportunities in the company as there are many people applying for the same positions. Management at retail level are not well equipped to deal with people they know the business but not the part that they need to get the best from their employees. Interviews are usually a formality and depends a lot on your relationship with management as opposed to your actual qualifications and performance. There is not enough time in the day to complete the work assigned. I have learnt that planning is very important and without adequate planning the challenges will overcome you. i love people so my relationship with my colleagues are good, i would like to think that I make a positive impact on them as most of them do for me. I enjoy the rare opportunities to interact with customers and get the feel of the challenges that front line staff have. I also enjoy the rare opportunities I get to train and coach people, and try and give valuable tips to allow them to do their jobs well.

Pros: Fixed Income and Bonus
Cons: Not too much room for growth or promotion

Hard worker and learning more every day

Having enough hours in a day is challenging for me in my current role but you learn how to manage it durning time. Colleauges is great they can sometimes just brighten up your day and make you smile. I learn a lot from colleauges especially the colleauges thats is in the role for longer than me. Main thing if you don't know ask people is always willing to help and learn you and they appreciate it more when you ask.

I enjoy working in bank and have a good professional relationship with Management and my colleagues, My topical work day is when I'm struggling to resolve a query which is beyond my control due to eg.callcentre. I enjoy working with calculations and figures and I prefer challenge more than doing one and the same thing all the time.My current job taught me to be focused, accuracy,honestly and open minded in terms of learning new things and people

Pros: Growth
Cons: Not much challenge

I has been a wonderfull learning experience and getting to understand the work space

on daily basis we process application validate income and the document provided, we then send out outcome of whether the application is pending for -documents or to advise why so and so does not add up ,approved or declined based on what reasons. we are trusted to use our on discretion if there is some thing that is not adding up whether is to refer it to Head office for further assessment-to be analysed and further investigated or to pend and ask. we only work with copies of the client's document and at time is might be hard to scrutinise and tell that the document might be legit or not ,but there guidelines to help us make a confident decision.

Working at Absa Technology Finance Solutions

Being in finance, you always have to meet deadlines and working under pressure at month-end. Accuracy is a must and basic accounting knowledge is essential to complete your day to day tasks. I work well in a team and with my other colleagues. I assist others where I can even with queries that may be unrelated to my specific job functions, so to resolve a query. Having to work for my currently company for almost 10 years, I've learned a lot about the dynamics of the company, people's behaviours and conflict handling. I love my job, because you always have to think, and I love working with numbers. The most challenging aspect of my job was conflict handling. Colleagues and management not adhering to cut-off times and insisting that payments needs to be made causes conflict.

Pros: Building relationships
Cons: No room for growth
