After reading few back pages, I got the gist that people are not happy with the bank jobs, whatever the reasons may be. They cited innumerable examples for their dissatisfaction. But can I ask them a single instance where they felt satisfied. If not, then they have to find one, to stay in this era of ruthless competition. Its all about dealing with tough situations initially, if one manages, the life offers much more to cheer about. Being a new comer, you are suppose to work beyond your duty hours, you are suppose to come on off days and you are suppose to do the work what you think its not your job.
Why people think that other avenues are better or we have to look for other competitive exams. Is that something they offer lucrative like weekend off, no work on Sundays, relaxed weekdays etc. Just tell me one job, only one single job where we do not have to work intensely or where the work is just like a piece of cake. I hail from reputed MBA institute and worked for one of the top diamond manufacturing company in India, where apart from my regular duties I had to go to the market and purchase things which a peon could do and stayed from 8 AM to 7 PM in Mumbai apart from commuting time. Wherever we will go, we have to give more than 100% to stay, otherwise be ready to accept the pink slip especially in private sector. My father, who is a DGM in BOI, joined as a clerk and even after becoming AGM he devoted most of his Sundays to the bank and during his initial years he used to leave home at 6 in the morning and come at 9 in the evening as he had to travel 120 km from his hometown. Conditions were also pathetic that time in fact more than today as there was hardly any effective human resource. After getting selected in Union Bank, he himself asked me to ask your manager that if needed, you can come on Sunday as well.
Friends, we are in the nascent stage of our career and if we cant work for 12 hrs now how can we expect to climb the ladder later. These are the days of absolute hard work we simply cant run away from this, whatever may be the situation face it with confidence.
Always remember if you are surrounded by positivity, then positivity will bound to happen.
Most importantly, PO is a post where a person is liable to be posted anywhere in India. If one thinks he could have done better if got home posting then better sit for clerk exam, unless there is some genuine reason for it. How many out there complaining about home posting (apart from few who have genuine problem) will not go abroad if given the chance by banks? I bet everybody will raise their hands.
So grow up guys, we are mature enough not to be home sick.
