Bank Teller Jobs

Bank Teller Overview


The bank teller is typically the person that the bank customers interact with the most often. Their job is a multifaceted one. They process deposits and withdrawals for customers as well as process loan payments. They cash checks, process certified checks, open and close accounts, accept payment for a customer’s charge card, utility bills and more. They also must keep an accurate record of all transactions and pay careful attention to details at all times such as properly verifying a customer’s identification as well as adhere to all bank regulations. They must be able to handle a large amount of money and balance cash with all transaction receipts at the end of their shift and to do so accurately. Moreover, they are responsible for keeping up-to-date on the banks products and services, be able to ascertain by looking at the customer’s account what services or products might be helpful to them and be able to explain those services and products to the customer clearly.

There is a high potential for advancement in this field and specialty bank teller situations. These can give the prospective bank teller an edge in the job market. One example is that many banks are in need of bilingual tellers. Once bank teller experience has been accumulated, job titles such as Commercial Bank Teller, Lead Teller or Loan Specialist may be a step up in a banking career.

Traditionally, bank employees worked a straight 9 to 5 shift but ATMs as well as banks being open on Saturdays, have led to employees being able to enjoy a flexible or alternate type of shift in some cases.

Computer literacy is also important for these positions as well as excellent communications skills and customer service skills.
