We provided a report regarding the way banks in today’s date are behaving adamant to collect fines from its customers citing lesser balance as the reason. Well, the curse doesn’t end here. Bad news is that even the bank job aspirants also have to come across with some really tough times. In fact, it can be claimed that if you are preparing for the banking competitive exams and highly optimistic about the same, you should rather start looking for the alternatives.

According to the reports, seven leading banks are not going to make any hiring in the year 2018. In fact, they are not going to hire even a single employee this year. Rather, there is every chance of existing job cuts. The reason is being cited behind this is that around 30 corporate houses and around hundred mid-level corporate houses have taken extraneous amounts from the banks. Now, the banks don’t want to dissatisfy these corporate clients of them, in fact are being pressurized to compensate for the loss in various forms. Needless is to say that cutting the costs through reduction of hiring is one of the straightforward methods available for them. Unbelievable is to know that this approach of job cuts has turned out the way to survive for many banks.
