I would open the branch for we can assist our customers and run the transactions that was left on the night drop.

Payment Processor (Former Employee), South Bend, IN – March 30, 2013
Pros: worked independantly - start and finish to every day
Cons: none - i loved this job.
My typical day @ the bank would be to post mortgage payments. Payments would be in the form of electronic posting; teller transactions and payments submitted through the mail that would need to be posted manually and batched for deposit. I worked primarily on my own and was soley responsible for all daily transactions. At the end of the day, I would – more... take batches down to the teller line and maintain teller transcation totals/balances. I learned alot from this position - I learned about electronic payments and general banking processes. I enjoy my coworkers and my Manager was awesome. The hardest part of my job was probably working totally on my own - due to the high volume of daily trasncations that were required to post prior to the end of the day, I was unable to interact as much as others with coworkers. – less

The most enjoyable part of the job is the family atmosphere and outside activities the bank offers. – less
