The job itself is not too difficult although you need to be prepared to deal with unpleasant customers and difficult situations. Strict deadlines to meet everyday and overall overworked for just above minimum wage position.
Pros
Canteen on site, ongoing compliance training
Cons
Understaffed, no pathway for progression, management biased

Overall I enjoyed my experience in the bank. However some days it could be extremely hard and tiring work. Management were always extremely helpful whenever a situation arose that I was unable to deal with. I learned an awful lot in my short time in the bank and it has given me many skills that I feel I can apply to any job in the future.

I worked there for 13 years and I had a great time and learned so much. I made so many friends, learned so much, learned how to take up learning new systems from just one lesson. It teaches you how to be well disciplined and how to look after yourself and self manage your work. Attention to detail is very important.
Pros
people who we work with, culture
Cons
15 minutes for toilet break

I enjoyed my time with Bank of Ireland as it was my first corporate job and I learned the basics of customer service there. I worked with excellent leaders and mentors and developed both personally and professionally during my time there.

Work enviorment was very positive, encouragement given by Team Leaders with help on offer when required. Plenty of scope for advancement if ambitious. Typical day at work was spent on the phone, taking bank quiries from customers. Learnt how to problem solve and think on my feet. Co-workers were highly skilled and helpful at all times. Most enjoyable part of the job was helping solve issues for customers
Cons

Cash or batch operator Cash ordering and submitting. Responsible for balancing at the end of the day. Foreign exchange - ordering and submitting excess. Meeting people daily at the counter and advising them of products. I learned a lot especially in the smaller branches as I was doing more. I got on well with all the staff. The hardest part of the job was when the cash didn't balance and trying to find the error. The most enjoyable part was meeting people and becoming more confident in myself.
Pros
staff nights out
Cons
pressure to sell various products

As a customer service agent, I take calls from both business and personal customers requesting information on their accounts. It was a demanding role and could get stressfull at times due to the volumn of calls and customers getting upset about their financial affairs, but it could also be rewarding due to different incentives provided by the management . The teamleaders and management were very helpful and professional. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful. Working with my team made the job enjoyable.
Pros
friendly enviroment
Cons
lack of car parking places for work
