What are customer service assistants saying about pay at Barclays?

  • Best thing

    Pay is comparatively good and much more sociable hours than say retail

    Worst thing

    Constant changes to rota, short staffing poor planning will affect lunches and breaks. Onboarding training will not prepare you for the job, current attrition rate is 70% of colleagues leave in a year.

    Pay, travel, bad management

  • Best thing

    Working in a bank gives you a skill set of financial literacy you would never learn in a classroom

    Worst thing

    Not enough pay


    Barclays Employee, October 2023

  • 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.


    Barclays Employee, March 2023

  • 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.
