I considered Commercial bank of Kuwait for my internship program after
careful consideration as it is one of the prominent local bank of Kuwait. This
internship provided me the opportunity to learn more about the banking
sector in Kuwait. This report is about my internship at Commercial Bank of
Kuwait, Mubarik Al Kabir Branch from 15th May to 23rd June for six weeks.
During my internship I was able to learn practical features of banking and
obtain a good working experience from professionals.
The first day, I reported to Human Resource Department and met the
training supervisor, XXXX. She gave me brief introduction of the bank and
its policies. Later on, I went to the Branch, and met the Branch Manager,
XXXX, who was very courteous and cooperative. She introduced me to the
Supervisor Customer Services. According to bank policy, every internee is
rotated among various departments, in order to get the general awareness
about the Bank operations. This departmental rotation is usually for a week.
During the internship I learned about various bank operations. In retail
banking I have gone through operational aspects of customer service, loans,
fixed deposit, safe custody, credit cards, foreign exchange and remittances.
I have learnt how they function and deal with different type of customers
every day. I have tried to grasps all the detail and working.
Each department has its own supervisor who reports to Deputy Branch
Manager and who in turn reports to the Branch Manager. The staff at CBK is
predominantly Kuwaiti nationals. The attendance at CBK was very important,
so I was suppose to sign daily attendance sheet with the branch manager’s
secretary. The bank staff was very friendly and cooperative, so I had a very
relaxed time and above all I got a chance to learn from them. At the
completion of my internship program, I reported back to HR, which issued
me an Internship Completion Letter & Internee Evaluation Form. I am sure
that this report will provide you a complete momentary look of the bank,
where I have completed my internship. Moreover this report depicts my
practical experience that I have gained and learned during this internship
