Customer Service Representative in London, Greater London
on 7 May 2022
Overall Decent Job
The job was overall pretty good, very good culture and team lovely people to work with. Training is good but could be improved. Pay is not that great for the work you do and management is not the best but overall a good place to work with a good culture and team.

Slough is absolutely shambolic
The management isn't good at all, not professional and the way the payroll team works isn't good either. No communication on what to do. I'd advise you not to work here if you're expecting a good job.

Worst place I have ever worked
It says alot that in the 9 months I was with this company, 4 people took long term sick leave. Please read this if you are considering applying for the CSR role. The pay is very low for the role, which is essentially 3 roles within one. Competitors offer around 3k more for similar roles. Theres a lot of questionable behavior within the banks from management, including constant mishandling of customer data and sometimes cash. Management themselves are professional micromanagers. I raised my concerns with the people team who stamped me down very quickly, saying "maybe you took it the wrong way".The role itself is exhausting, you are expected to know it inside out straight out of training. Asking for guidance was usually met with push back from managers, where they'd tell you you should know it. This led to staff mishandling queries regularly as they had no choice. The CSR role is business and personal account opening and management as well as cashiering, like I said, 3 roles in one! I regularly experienced incidents like vaults not being properly locked, impersonators being given access to customer accounts and very questionable businesses being given accounts. The branches themselves are rife with cliquey hierarchy, and if you're not with the "in" crowd you will find it difficult. I experienced this in the 4 branches I worked in. The culture is very extroverted, they expect you to perform work chants in group meetings and in some cases perform dances for the exec team. I am not joking. If you refuse you are MADE to take part. The "culture" is so deep that I've witnessed staff being sent home to change because they "wore the wrong shade of red". The policy around what you wear to work is extremely strict however they provide NO uniform. Please reconsider any future applications for this joke of a bank.

Brilliant company to work for
They are a brilliant company to work for and really helped when I became sick. Changed hours etc they were so accommodating. But it’s quite a stressful job made worse if your unwell. But I can’t fault them. The way they treat staff is second to none brilliant. If you want to progress and work hard the opportunity’s are endless.
