Job suited me well

I was generally happy working at Lloyds. A lot of staff suffered with low morale due to lack of progression opportunities in branch but such is the nature

Overall ok

In general it’s a great place to work. Makes you feel safe lots of benefits. Mainly it’s the sales side of things even tho you “can’t” push sales the managers are always making you feel like you haven't done enough to push things on to people that don’t need it. When I first started you had targets but they were slowly pushed out but they were still there and found it mentally straining! Especially walk through dropped dramatically people using online banking instead

Great place to work

Overall I have enjoyed my 31 years at the bank. A great company to work for but junior staff are way underpaid for what they do for the bank. The additional benefits add onto to your basic salary to make it an attractive package overall.

Turn up, go home

There are some benefits to working at Lloyds Bank call centre. The training is well organised, but lacks realistic scenarios once thrown into the phones, you pretty much learn fast or you leave, which is why there is such a high staff turn over at pendefors.It is a jobs where you can turn up and then go home. There is room to move to other departments, but like most call centres, nepotism is alive and well and you'll have to get in with the managers to progress if you're not a family member or a friend of the family. The culture isn't too bad, you meet some wonderful people. Although, the micro managing and being watched and pulled up on your toilet time, depletes that team morale...However, that being said, senior staff lack compassion, and it's a fight if you are unfortunate for anything to happen in your home life or if you get sick.


Free drinks, good and fun teams


Micro managed, nepotism, lack of good training

Stressful and conflicting messages.

Middle managers ignore the company values to push their own agenda. Toxic if you get the wrong manager. With the right manager, this company is great to work at

Very old computer systems unreliable

Old building. Old computers which freeze and go down quite regularly. Very frustrating for customers who are waiting. I didn't enjoy my experience there there is alot of pressure selling targets.


Nice uniform

Mixed Feelings

I started working at Lloyds as a cashier in around 2015 before progressing to a banking consultant in the same year. Initially working as a banking consultant I really liked my job; we received regular face to face training for our role, as well as digital training on a weekly basis. If you wanted to progress there were opportunities to join programmes especially for this, where again you would have face to face meetings with similar colleagues every month. You were also then given extra responsibilities if you wanted it, to help progress. I felt trusted to do my job and enjoyed having meetings with my customers. However, things changed in the 1 year before I left in 2019, when they decided to bring in recordings of meetings with customers. Although I understood this protected staff and customers, I felt they were just using it mainly as a tool to micro-mange you and pick faults in your customer interaction. They also started to nick pick more in the sheets you had to fill out at the start of every customer interview, expecting you to leave the customer to go over with the manager to make sure you hadn't "missed anything". Overall with these changes I didn't feel trusted to do my role, I was expected to act like a robot, and was made to feel incompetent when I was actually very good at what I did. It lowered my confidence and morale to the point I knew it was time to go. If I was rating Lloyds in 2015 I would have given 5 stars, but for 2019 I had to change this to 3 stars.

Great company to work for.

Spent 35 years with Lloyds. Overall fantastic. Get the odd idiots that that’s part and parcel of all jobs. Did the hours and some line managers took me for granted. Still miss Lloyds Bank!




Occasional bullying

Great company to work for

Lloyds is one of the best company I have worked for, met a Amazing people and managers are so helpful and help with career progression. Wages could be better for the job that’s being done.

Good place but low chance of progression

Unless you have a degree, progression can take ages before it happens. You have to continously apply for jobs within and mostly you will hear No. They keep you on A grade for as long as possible with immense work pressure.

You are paid half the money you deserve, and being forced to do the 3 people's job. No appreciation, horrible management. Culture of speak up supposed to be a big thing but actually no one wants to listen what you think, what you would change. Hypocrisy on the other hand should be the company value.


Full sick pay


Rest of it

No set work pattern

While the people I worked with were great and the work interesting the main issue with this job is that new starters are on a flexible contract and you will only get a rough work pattern and this is constantly changing. Your days working will change week to week as well as start and stop times and in addition you will be expected to move between branches without complaint. It is also rare that you will start or finish at your paid hours with extra time after common, normally 5 or 10 minutes but occasionally half an hour; this is not time you will get back. I worked here a few years before I moved on to another role with more stability and I will miss the people I worked with but I’m so glad to not be working for Lloyds anymore.




Constantly changing work hours

The worst

Training is okay after training is a nightmare the management is not organised, nobody seems to know anything, people leave due to falling into depression here or becoming suicidal, no type of support, the targets are unrealistic mostly.

Stressful and time consuming

Lloyds bank has a big reputation and when I joined was when Mortgage Market Review was being initiated.The training was top notch, informative, useful, team building, you knew you could do the job at the end and was fully supported all the way through.Then the restructuring began, areas changed, Area managers moved around. They utilised many old school out of date managers not suited for the role and favoured people they liked regardless of capability.Within two years I felt out of place, non supported, picked on and out of the loop.Then they micro managed everything, from interviews, appointments to general banking hall interactions. It never felt productive to the bank let alone the customer, they neglected customers who were long standing, no emphasis on retaining business just generating new.So much it majorly effected my health and I had to leave for that reason.


Salary, staff, location


STRESS!!!!! Felt worthless

Great place to work for. You really are cared about as an individual

Management take responsibility for issues and offer great support. Regular check ins for well-being and performance review. Only let down is progression, it seems to only match the interest of the business. A lot of internal recruitment advertised but the opportunity to move depends on if your current team needs you! I would recommend it if you are happy to stay in the role you apply for. You really are considered part of a Lloyds family!


Private healthcare, car lease programme, good amount of holiday, bonuses

Fair employer

Fair employer providing on going training, support and career progression if desired. Very supportive through Covid showing they do value the well-being and work life balance of their staff.


Many benefits which continue to grow.

Lloyds Bank Call Centre

Worked in the Glasgow call centre for online banking. Training was thorough and a good sense of comradery. Company shifts fitted well with studying full time at Uni. Enjoyed my time there.
