I Finally Quit My Bank Job In Nigeria For Bolt Driving

Good afternoon Gisters. I have finally resign from the banking job and I am very happy now with my earnings and freedom. For me to resign I had to work as Bolt driver everyday I close from the bank and drive till 10pm and worked all through the weekends as a bolt driver, with this I was able to save 1million in short period of time and got loan of 1.5m to get another car. So now my monthly savings after other expenses is 200k which I plan to pay back the loan in six month starting form this month. I only work from Wednesday to Sunday every week now since I resigned. Thanks for all the support from here, other contract staff bankers especially men reading this post should look for exits root immediately as there is no future in the banking industry for us as a polytechnic graduates.

Well said. You guys are either poorly paid or you were entry level, either case, I am not contesting this as I have limited facts. However years ago as an SBE (Senior Banking Executive) my pay would not justify me leaving the job and doing Uber. The only issues i would have complained about are (1) humongous targets and (2) time constraints leading to lack of rest and stress. Please note, I was a back office staff (Legal Support Services). All in, whatever works. I was only clearing the fact that the OP was a contract staff (and his write-up also confirmed it).

Look this doesn't matter at all. Be it contract or full time. The point is working from the back end doesn't in a bank doesn't pose much to u. U aren't asked to work during the weekends, u are probably not even given any target. As a well knowledge person in the operations(thank God I moved on from the slavery) you practically never have time for anything and u think being paid a paltry 250k as an ET is enough? The man moved on from his banking job. This I admire seeing that if he makes a consistent 10k daily, that would land him minimum of 200k monthly assuming he doesn't want to be saving 100% his earnings. Alas! He would even make much more with a lot of effort and God's grace and still have ample reserved time for other things. We must encourage big moves like this! Now how many of the bank workers save that? (Remember am talking about savings). Most bankers don't even have up to 1/4 of their salary before the next payday.

Not just Bank job sir... Nearly every salaried job outside Top management position is nothing but slavery and gradual descent into poverty.

Even doctors, pharmacists, engineers, etc, are no longer spared. The thing is to have something extra giving you the needed financial uplift, or like the Op, going into something that will truly pay you with less stress.

Stop calling your former banking job a job. its corporate slavery. aka slaves in suit and tie

I'm happy for you and thank God for you. theres nothing like freedom from Slave masters that call themselves bank executives. Gone are the days when we used to envy/admire men and women working in the bank. They looked so elegant, sharp and smart. now they are not different from labourers doing hard labourous jobs under a.c's and With machines

However op please be weary of broke, entitled and rude slay queen's that don't have money to pay but want to give you sex in exchange for their transport fare or those that have perfected the skills of accusing you of rudeness or sexual harassment. similarly avoid girlfriends of yahoo boys for the sake of your sanity. congratulations once again

Your level will change in some few weeks..

Don't relax... Work hard to secure a second car and give it to a trusted driver...

You can probably earn total 400k/m

My lady banker friend is depressed, desperate to leave her banking job,but she's struggling to find an alternative as she's the main bread winner, and can't just quit.

The thing is wearing her down mentally.

Some banking jobs are something else.

The world has changed, and nobody should be doing a contract job in a bank of less than 100k per month with all your time taken to do nothing with your life

Why will a young man take a job less than 100k, work 7 to 7 with hard labour and no career growth nor transferable skills. Even full staff in banks don dey japa not to talk of contract staff, it is the most evil thing u can do to yourself

Only a masochist should work in the bank as a contract staff
