BRANCH MANAGER (Former Employee) –  LIRA BRANCHSeptember 14, 2015
A typical day would still entail smart and planned activities on a time structured schedule, cascaded sales targets and overseeing the branch operations. Management was effective and decision making was very timely. Colleagues were friendly and committed. The hardest part of the job was traversing the hostile northern region of uganda in search for sales. And the enjoyable part was hitting our sales targets and celebrating our achievements as a team.

Not for Temps
Loan Analyst (Current Employee) –  Newark, DEAugust 26, 2015
I was a temporary contracted worker for Barclays. You work long days and nights and weekends as a temp, so don't expect the normal 9-5pm job. They will tell you they treat temps as equal to the permanent employees, but this couldn't be further from the truth. You are treated very differently. They do not train you, but expect that you will just hit the ground running. Training needs to be provided for all temps and management should be much more cognizant of that fact.
