TGIF,and all those commission bonuses nko, :can't remember what it's called,tips etc all join..though marketers are at advantage in going further than others. .


Lmao. TGIF = fruits, meat pies. KFC chicken. Are those perks? grin. Anybody that remains in an organisation because of TGIF food is a joker.

Most contract staff do not earn commission.

Tips? The odd 1,000 naira, recharge card here and there are not justifiable reasons for someone with ambition and career goals to remain in a bank as a contract staff for 16 years.

Hello All,

Top of the moment to everyone on this platform.

I need to table my plight to every one who's willing to pick up a banking job as a contract staff. This is my experience,
at Age 25, I decided to work with my ND certificate, hence my parent struggled to sponsor my studies, I put in for HND part time, having the hope after my HND program, that I have the better chance to secure a job else where with my current certificate knowing fully fully well that I have 5yrs experience.

I was amazed during my interview sessions with employers that it would be unfair for them to employ me when they have CONTRACT staff with them that have not been converted.

Now, am 41, my experience in interview sessions is terrible, after all questions and interaction, I would be made to know that I have built over the years a good CV even in. a banking sector but the BARRIER is AGE.

With this am frustrated, am like what's happening in our country, is it a crime for some to Age, I mean my experience should be speaking for me and not refraining me from certain opportunities.

The recession now has even worsened all as since 2015 am out of job when Ecobank disengaged there staff of their duties.

it takes the Glory of Almighty for my Living cos I have nothing am doing right now!

So I implore all that may pick interest to banking job as contract workers to think well and not waste their precious and youthful age with this self centred firms.
Thank you,,
YewaLand.
bro my storywould have been like this but I thank God we didn't let it happen,,,after workin in the banking sector for. Four years,,i realized and calculated. From.the people I met on ground how they have been contract staffs for. Donkey years without. Conversion and also the way contract staffs are being treated like. Second class citizen,,i began looking for alternatives before I cross the employment age gap,,thanks 2God. Almighty I got employed with the federal govt,,,i. Still. Rember vividly wht my boss. Said before I left. The banking hall that. Day,,,she was. Like son you are so. Lucky,,till today. As we speak,,the people I met who have been there before my employment for 4years and more. Are still there with the same grade level and. Same. Salary and funny. Enough. It's been four years since I left,,,my candid. Advice to any n.d holder with age on their side is look. For. Better. Opportunities. Rather the banking sector,,,so as to avoid a lot of issues. In the future!!!

Good English or not the ops experience is typical of what bankers face, no job security,labor, imagine giving someone a target of 600million or more,this contract staff slavery in banks needs to be looked into. The few that climb up got there through their bank godfathers. ..banking in Nigeria needs total overhauling

You need to first learn the difference between am and I'm. At 41 you're still using such shorthand.
The root of your problem is not farfetched oga.


Anyways, those bank management are trying to maximize profit so they have deviced stringent means of sieving through entrants. Sorry to say, my advise is for you to look outside the bank. Look at other sectors. You can still make it. 40 is middle of life but you still have some time to launch afresh. But it's in your best interest to tackle the problem highlighted above.

I won't be surprised if he was a teller or bulk room cashier or customer service rep throughout that 16 years.

The OP clearly lacked ambition or any serious career goals.
Leave them,na their way.
Once it's about bank, everyone will want to chook mouth. They should better pray Buhari doesn't destroy this economy totally.

That unemployment rate is high, is because banks haven't been employing. They only see the bad part _there are contract staff in every sector. It is what it is:contract!

Is banking the worst job in Nigeria?
What about teachers? Doctors that are going on strike everyday?
Nurses dey complain their own. If say I be MD of banks, I will pause recruitment till 2023. They should go to Shell and Agip.grin

Nigerians!
We enjoy deceiving ourselves, busy doing nothing.
Why won't pretenders lay emphasis on trivialities? His use of English, CV, letter, HND ,BSc, 2:1 etc. All these are issues because you guys are not really doing anything in that industry, you need very few graduates. Come and see expatriates in the oil and gas industry earning more than your annual salary as monthly salary, with that same ND. That's because they have something in their brains. It's not enough to tell us you have MSc, ACCA etc when in reality you cannot add any meaningful value to an organization. The Asians are teaching us the hard way already. Most of them pay based on what you have to offer the companies and not the certificates you bring. The truth is, we're not really doing anything,so we don't really need knowledgeable people, so, can afford to lay emphasis on trivialities. As an engineer, I see engineers working in banks as using a gun to kill a mosquito.

Exactly @ bolded.

You did the right thing at getting a BSc.

People tend to shy away from the harsh reality that in Nigeria, HND is considered a very inferior educational qualification.

The OP did not develop himself educationally throughout the time he was with the bank. Just imagine if he had acquired at least the ACCA qualification. He would have stood a better chance crossing to another bank as a permanent staff or moving to another sector within financial services (pension companies, fund managers/administrators, insurance companies, audit firm,etc).

There are other sectors within financial services that offer job security with good financial rewards.

I thought you knew it all in english
please correct yourself, there's nothing like "bolded" .

You are right. People are always quick to attack the banks forgetting that they are one of the highest employers of labour in Nigeria.

MRS Petroleum at a point had just about 90 permanent employees in the entire Nigeria( I'm sure the figure has dropped) yet you won't find people condemning the oil and gas sector.

Teaching is actually the worst sector in Nigeria.

Obviously, you don't know how to talk. Must you embarrass the ppster ? What was your grade in English Language in your O'level that you are correcting people without any show of respect for what they are going through. It is either you are a brat or just at a nuisance. Learn to be empathic. Because you dont know what will befall you in future. Even if you have not experienced job loss in your life show compassion to other who are in that position. The way you started your advised rubbished whatever sense you seemed to have made. However, Dear poster I feel for you. I left banking recently as a core staff and I joined that industry in 2007. Contract staff in Banks receive meagre stipends. I know what you are going through. Please don't give up as God Almighty will open doors of greater opportunities for you[font=Lucida Sans Unicode][/font].

I thank you all for your comments,
we all stand to be corrected as we view this forum as educative, just as we observed in this topic, nobody is perfect except ALMIGHTY
We all are matured people, my little suggestion here is let's not refrain people from saying their resentments which could go a long way speaking for others.
I appreciate you all,

Thank you

A contract staff enjoys little or no perks.

Ego and pride are the main reasons some stay so long in a bank as a contract staff with no ambition or career path.

They want to be seen wearing suit and tie and enjoy the "prestige" that comes with banking.
almost everywhere contract staff are not treated well....where I work they have contract staff yet employ full staff without considering any of the contract staff
