Anyone work for a bank as a teller?
Summer is approaching and I'm looking for a decent summer job. I've heard banks compensate rather well, and seems like it wouldn't be too bad. I'd get to interact with people, see how much they make (haha), and work in a nice air conditioned environment. I've been looking around online at various banks and they all seem to have mostly the same requirements for teller positions, such as retail experience and cash handling experience. I have about 2 and a half years retail experience and about 1 and a half years of cash handling experience. I have noticed however that some banks, Bank of America specifically, mention how you are expected to meet a sales goal. I assume this is recommending services and what not to customers. They also mention that you are expected to process 20-25 transactions an hour with zero mistakes. Don't get me wrong, I'm motivated and hard working, but pushing things onto people and be under pressure to do so is not really something I am interested in.
So with that said, does anyone have any experience working as a teller for a bank? If so, how did you/do you like it, and which bank did you/do you work for? Is it really that sales based?
