    Cool Probationary Officer's Life and Duties in the State Bank



    Hello all,

    I believe we all will be very eager to know the life of an Probationary Officer of State Bank or any other Bank while we prepare for the Banks exams. We are always very eager to know the work a PO handles, the kind of authority he wields and the kind of time he spend daily in the Branches.



    Well here I would like to tell you about my experience as a Probationary Officer

    First of all, after the declaration of the final results all the selected candidates will be getting the medical examination letter from the respective Regional Office/Head Office of the Banks. You will get this in about a month. Now here you can ask for extension if you are not ready to join the bank for reasons like marriage, studies or anything. But use this extension wisely as you cannot ask again for the same. (Actually its not wiser to go for the extension as when you report after the extension all the positions in the Metros, A1 Cities will be filled by the candidates who have reported earlier and you will be posted to interior places of the states. Imagine a place like Bundi in Rajasthan :P )

    After the medical examination is over, you will have to submit those reports to the RO/HO and you will then be given your Appointment Letter and asked to report to the Branch or Regional Office or Head Office allotted to you. Since all the candidates cannot be accommodated for the training in the training institute of the Bank, some are asked to report at Branches or HO or RO for on field training while some are given institutional training in Staff College of the Bank. Then again after the completion of the batch in the Staff College these Officers are posted to different branches and the Officers who were earlier posted to the Branches without any training are called for the institutional training. This cycle continues until all the Officers have completed the first phase of the training. I am saying first phase because Officers have to undergo three phases of training in the Staff Colleges around India.

    After my training at the Staff College I was posted to a Branch in the interiors of a State. On the day of my reporting to the Branch I went straight to the Manager's Chamber and introduced myself. He welcomed me and we started talking about my background and all. He then explained me about the Branch details and all. Then the Manager introduced me to the rest of the staff of the Branch. Everyone were very cordial.

    Well after the pleasantries, I was asked by my Deputy Manager what all I know and told him everything. He asked me to take over the counter and the Clerk who was occupying the counter to take other work. (POs are generally not given Counter on first hand but I believe he was impressed by me and also allotted me Capability Level 2 to handle the transactions of up to Rs. 20,000. This was really a surprise to me
    :P )

    Then it was very hectic job handling the counter straight away and handling the customers. I used to clear cheques, transfers, make new SB and CA accounts, do clearing, and passed the vouchers of up-to Rs 20,000. (Don't worry, you all will come to know about this when you join the Bank.)

    I used to report to the Bank by 10 AM and leave by 7 or 8 PM depending on the Manager's mood
    :P.

    But as a Probationary Officer make up your mind to spend most of the time of the day in the Branches. I know some of my batch mates who have stayed back as late as 10 PM in the branches with the Manager.

    ===========

    I could write up only this. But if you guys have any doubt other than this or want me to substantiate anything then feel free to ask me here.

    I never have interacted with any IT officer. As far as I know, these people are posted in Head Offices/Regional Offices, as most of the Computer Servers are stationed there only. And they do the work like any other IT guy in private company. The starting pay of both PO and Asst.Manager (IT) are same. But then again, if one is looking for an IT job then look for Microsoft or Google.

    @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: There is no such Bond in SBI or it's Associate Banks. Other Banks have a Bond which you should execute while accepting the Offer from the Bank.

    To put it in simple terms, you cannot leave the bank unless you complete the stipulated years mentioned in the Bond or if you want to leave the bank before completion of the Bond period, then you need to pay the money mentioned in the Bond.
