What are call and contact centre staff saying about pay at Barclays?

  • Best thing

    Helping customers and colleagues

    Worst thing

    They don't care about staff. You're just a number to them. All the policies and procedures to appear as though they are inclusive and helpful and care - but they don't practice what they preach. It's wildly discussed through colleagues about how poor it is. Pay increase based on performance so isn't in line with the cost of living increasing. Expected to be in earlier but don't get paid for it. Some of the leaders are not that, they don't lead they just dictate. Could help but they don't.

  • Best thing

    The pay is good for what we do. The staff are friendly, the management are transparent around staffing, the direction the bank are moving in, they’re open and honest about everything that’s going on.

    Worst thing

    Abusive customers… although few and far between. Other colleagues under-perfoming.


    Barclays Customer care specialist, February 2022

  • Best thing

    6 months full sick pay
    Death in service benefit

    Worst thing

    Always short staffed
    Expected to do other people's work when they don't complete it
    Treated like a kid at school
    Targets , they call them aspirations now instead of targets 🤣


    Barclays Customer advisor, September 2021

  • Best thing

    Security - fraud isn’t reducing any time soon

    Worst thing

    The shifts, the amount of work, the changes without proper information, the pay, the micro management


    Barclays Employee, April 2021

  • Best thing

    The flexibility that is available now is much better for those who are happy to move to the new hybrid role.

    Worst thing

    Taking telephony calls even though I had not signed up to the hybrid role. Low pay considering what is expected of the role. Hard to progress for part time employees.
