Access Bank Staff Catch the ‘Happy’ Bug | Watch



Pharrell Williams‘ ‘Happy‘ is a wildfire that isn’t stopping any time soon and we love it!

The staff of Access Bank PLC have also been bitten by the ‘Happy’ bug, and they decided to make their very own video. Their happiness is quite infectious. Happy staff, happy customers…

Check on it.

    ‘Happy Video’ from the stables of slave drivers.

    • Bleed Blue

      May 21, 2014 at 9:23 am

      Slave drivers. Apt. My close friend recently resigned. She was the original 5 years a slave.

      From all I’ve heard from her and many others, unless at gunpoint, I cannot work for this bank oh.

      Clearly these are head office people! I worked for a bank for 3 years b4 leaving the country and going back to more professional work as a female Engineer
      Only head office people in ANY Nigerian bank can be this liberal people! people in branches are the most miserable ever lived 🙂 DO not be fooled! appearance is not always reality….bank work in Naija is nothing but make belief, fake life, wash-wash. LOL

    The lyrics makes more sense than the dance. It seems they can’t sing along. good fun to see them dance anyway.

    I wonder if they hypnotized their staff to be in this video. perhaps they are new employees because Access bank employees are over worked. Slave driving entity!

    May 21, 2014 at 9:37 am

    Access Bank management, please this organized entertainment is to what end??? Your bankers have incredible figures as target in the name of “Access Unite” and your recruitment process is as unhappy as one can be, requiring graduates that pass the test and interview to open 10 savings account of 2million Naira or a current account of 5 million Naira, then the 2million training bond of 2years and a manager to stand as surety.

    Dear aspiring bankers, Access Bank is NOT the bank to be.

  25. sum1special

    May 21, 2014 at 9:42 am

    Not bad. Bankers work really hard and need to loosen up every now and then.

    omo these guys just became one of the top paying banks, nice environment. abeg you people should come and hie me o, i have a 2.1 and i know growth here is fast. target fire! when entry level are getting 250k abeg they should work hard and be happy

    • eze

      May 21, 2014 at 11:38 am

      Nne as you re begging to be hired there is something they call access United for Et it’s 25million to be assured of ur work then 125m for promotion these money is not just deposit o, it’s fixed deposit tenor -runs concurrently till the end of the promo/slavery/torture, this condition is just for back office staff o that is assuming u pass their banking school rigors with the target attached. So better know how ur 3m annual will aid to achieve this, heaven forbid if u re a marketer cos I can’t begin to explain, just delete urself at the expiration of two yrs. Ndi access can never ever be classified as happy, no matter how hard they dance, except if u re one of their directors hence the monkey dey work baboons dey chop syndrome. FYI they re not the top paying check diamond for that

    • Olaoluwa Toks

      May 21, 2014 at 1:25 pm

      Mazi eze, my cousin has been with them for 9 years. It’s not as bad as this picture you’ve painted o! Definitely its a lot of work, but you don’t expect to be paid to sit around and do nothing. From what she says, you can actually be promoted every year if you’re doing well.

    • Ex banker now Engineer

      May 21, 2014 at 3:45 pm

      @OLaluwa toks: Indeed your cousin will say this, having spent 9 years of slavery working there. I have been a banker myself so absolutely know what I’m talking about. what the Eze wrote is very correct and your aunt is probably more than a manager hence having paid her dues and had her fair share of pain, she probably will be one of those baboons now coasting while the monkeys are slaving hard

    Access is a cool bank. I hope I can get a job there after my NYSC. I have been banking with them for 3 years. Heard they pay well too. Nice video.

    • Adeleke Adekunle

      May 21, 2014 at 1:37 pm

      You’re right. Did my research, Access Bank is one of the 3 top-paying Banks in Nigeria. They used to be like top 6 until they reviewed salaries last month. They are number or 3. Also heard they are a serious lot. Good to see that their employees have a social side.

    While access is cool looking bank, abeg let’s say the truth, it’s one of the worst places to work. We all know that as a fact. So all these sponsored comments should shut up and take several seats, this video was too forced abeg. also the charges are so ridiculous at some pojnt I felt I was being punished for opening an account with them. Bella, there is freedom in Nigeria, better post my comment.

  35. Changing Faces

    May 21, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    Go to their branch on Ogunlana in Surulere and get the worst customer service ever. Is this not the same bank they have meetings all night while Aig and his cohorts berate staff? Abeg stop deceiving yourselves

    • Orelope

      May 21, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      Aig this… Aig that. Na so everyone mouth go dey run cho… cho… cho… Aig left Access Bank sometime early this year. They have a new md, Hubert something. People should give the man a chance and allow him drive innovative ideas. Nigerians can hate. SMH

  36. Mzlyrics

    May 22, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    Exactly! Access Bank is a huge joke! I wonder why no one is looking into this horrible policy and putting an end to it! I couldn’t believe my ears when a friend told me about this and needless to say she couldn’t take the job cos she didn’t have the required 2m as bond! Access bank is a huge joke and making the ‘happy’ video just made it the more ridculous!

    May 23, 2014 at 7:41 am

    access bank is just so so lovely… if you are paid so well then you have to work ur ass off.PROUD ACCESS WARRIOR

  38. aig the government thief

    May 23, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    This na proper lie ooo! My cousin that is working there gets home by 3am n doesn’t sleep all night cos as a non marketer he has to bring 40million naira only to wake up by 5am again to his access to sadness! Some say Aig is gone…na lie oooooo… d man just put a slave driver in charge while concentrates on laundering monies for d Govt… happy fire!!!

  39. dddddsssssss

    June 1, 2014 at 7:26 pm
