Branch Operations & Service Head
Tenure at Citi: 11 yearsCan you tell us a little about yourself and your background?
I am an accidental banker with no background or family member in the banking industry. In fact, what led me to being a banker was a customer service job in BPO. Having worked in the customer support function, I developed immense interest in customer service and was keen to move to a customer-facing function or a role on the front-end giving me the opportunity to interact with customers.
I joined Citi in 2006 and have since been associated with this brand and worked in multiple functions across multiple locations. I currently manage Citi’s flagship branch in Bangalore City. I have over 15 years of experience in customer service and banking. I hold a postgraduate degree in business management. Travel, music, and food are my passions.
My journey with customer service began early in my work career when I used to work for the phone banking division of Citi, where providing the highest level of care to problem solve for customers was the top priority. It meant I was talking to very happy customers, upset customers, frustrated customers, etc. What I loved the most was solving customers’ issues smoothly and leaving them satisfied or even happier than when then originally called. I’m thankful I got an opportunity to make customers feel valued – irrespective of the situation.What does your day-to-day job entail and what do you like most about it?
On a typical workday, I am responsible for overseeing a team that provides a comprehensive client service. The primary focus is on enhanced service excellence to Citibank customers across client segments and channels of delivery, and seamless execution of retail banking solutions that are within a controlled environment. Primary responsibility includes managing the level of service quality to ensure high-quality customer satisfaction in all aspects of retail branch banking processes & procedures.What do you enjoy most about your role?
I love it when you take an unhappy customer who might be at the point of giving up and turn him/her around to a happy customer that is ready to give you another chance. I enjoy the people I work with. It is a fun and friendly atmosphere and I actually look forward to going to work every morning.What skill set does someone working in this kind of area need?
Today’s competitive environment revolves around the “customer,” where customer is the king and choices are many. Everyone today is selling something – product, service, idea, etc. However the key differentiating factor is how you handle the customer and the level of service that is provided. Inability to provide utmost satisfaction to the customer cannot lead to a long association with the products that the franchise has to offer.
If you enjoy working with people and thrive on making others happy, a career in customer service could be exactly what you need to fulfill your ambitions. There are customer service jobs available in almost every industry. With the right skill set and the desire to help people, you’ll find a variety of different job options to consider. You’ll also have the opportunity for job growth and will be able to move up the career ladder.Where can a career at Citi take you?
The customer service career pathway prepares you for a variety of positions that involve problem solving, meeting the needs of clients, and working with large diversified teams. Beyond the opportunities for personal growth, the road to and through customer service can lead to career advancement.
Some next-step roles may include:

Billing Disputes Expert
Tenure at Citi: 2 YearsCan you tell us a little about yourself and your background?

I first started working in customer service in retail. I spent a lot of time helping people find things and answering questions about products. I learned early on that sometimes people don’t know what they need, so it’s important to ask questions and get to know your customer a little.What does your day-to-day job entail and what do you like most about it?
My day is spent reviewing disputes with our card members and helping them understand the current status of their dispute.
