    I worked at Allied Irish Banks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay Most employees are friendly Good training

    Cons

    Parking is a nightmare, no choice but to park across at residents area who are unhappy about situation - understandably. Treated as a number, doesn't matter if you're kind and good at customer service if you're not doing perfect numbers for them. Team leaders vary different answers depending who you ask. Nobody really knows the answer. Uncertainty of position, I never knew if I would have a job next week or not and brought a lot of anxiety. Constant team huddles where we bring up issues that go no where. Impossible to get time off, those with seniority get their holidays first, don't expect a Summer holiday and definitely don't expect emergency days off if required.
