I am assuming this is your first banking position. Is it for a large bank or a community bank? I have worked in banking for 13 years, since I was a senior in high school. I am now a loan underwriter. But the hours and such are going to depend what bank it is and where. If you can tell me that maybe I will have a better idea. Most teller positions are heavy on sales now.

I was a teller then banker and a bank manager for a few years. I just want to let you know what you are getting into. Don’t get me wrong I loved helping people and talking to my customers, but tellers do a lot of work and you make on average around 9 an hour. You are responsible for your drawer, deposits, sales, audits ect. Also is 9 an hour worth getting Robbed? Just be careful and know its a fun job but you will work really really hard for that money! Good luck!!!!

I started working as a part time teller at a bank for 1 year and transferred to another bank as a full time teller.  I have been at my current banking job for 6 years now and work as an assistant manager/customer service manager.  Banking is not as wonderful as you go into it thinking.

As a PP mentioned you work hard for not a lot of pay.  You have sales goals, audits that are taken very seriously, and of course balancing.  Customer service is a big part of it as well because any time you are dealing with someone’s money they can get angry pretty fast.  It is a fun job usually allowing federal holidays off and weekends depending on the bank.  It is a good entry level position that you can advance it fairly quickly once you gain job knowledge.

Good luck!
