Working experience with the banking industry.

Work experience within the banking industry. The most challenging aspects of the job is definitely the high volumes of work as I personally deal with +- 40 vendors and all standard bank branches across 9 provinces of South Africa. I work well with my co-workers, there's a level of respect across the board and communication is very key, so we do very well under those key components. What I enjoy about the job, is the fact that I got a chance to communicate with a very large audience, be it telephonically or electronically but it has improved my communication skills a great deal. Having to solve queries daily from different candidates, has also sharpen up my style of resolving issues. I have learnt to be respectful, patient, cooperative, innovative and most importantly to deliver as expected on any project or my job as per my contract with the company.

Pros: Opportunities are there
Cons: As the job is volume driven, i turn to work long hours

Corporate culture

Most of the employees are very friendly and helpful. They have a sense of togetherness. They are a family unit and do nice things for each other (I.e. babyshowers are greatly celebrated). Team building is a common thing, even if it's not a formal event. They encourage people to help each other, especially because we work in teams.

Pros: Useful experience
Cons: Lack of growth opportunities

Excellent learning curve

Working at the Company where I'm currently is good, because you interact with people from different levels of knowledge. My colleagues are good, I like seen them when I come to work, we have boundaries on our relationships that we have to respect. I have learnt how to detect fraud, how to analyze transactions and when a customer is lying, I also learnt how to see if a certain Company is fraudulent or not. I enjoy the freedom that is given to us, because we adults and we do not have to be treated like kids. The most challenging aspect of my job is working at night, I do not like working at night.

Pros: Great Company
Cons: Not enough opportunities for promotion.

Excellent learning

to work in the company is to gain experience. get along with people from different cultures. working long hours. cleaning the room close to 16 room pay day, is a tough 1 but we push our self to finish it. we learn that there is challenging job out there but all you have to do is to push your self to finish the job before you go home. the relationship with our co-workers is good one because if you don't do the job proper the will teach you how to do the job. sometimes when we go for lunch we go together and they gave us free food. but it depends on the company as we were working at the hotel. it was enjoyable day. I learn that sometimes job can be hard sometimes can be easy. all you have to do is to work and at the end of the day you will finish it. month end you get paid. Thank you

Pros: great opportunity to get experience
Cons: long working hours
