Teller

Greenbacks, cheddar, Benjamins. Whatever you call your cash, chances are that a teller has helped you with it at one time or another.

Overview

A Teller is responsible for handling customer transactions and helping with account related inquiries at banks. This most typically includes the processing of account withdrawals and deposits for business and consumer account holders. While not strictly the role of a teller, in some banks tellers are also responsible for other banking services such as creating accounts, managing safety deposit boxes, helping customers order replacement checks, etc.

The career path of a bank teller typically includes time as a Senior Teller and sometimes offers the opportunity to branch out into other banking services (e.g. Mortgages and Loans) or management positions. Teller positions usually require a candidate to hold a high school diploma and have experience in handling cash and interacting with consumers in a retail or services setting.
