LOW pay and HIGH responsibility
Teller (Former Employee) – Hot Springs Village, AR – October 9, 2015
I applied for this job because it involved working with people which I enjoy and have a lot of experience doing. The company culture was good and I had very nice co-workers and I did enjoy interacting with most customers.
On the negative side, you only get 5 days of training which many seem like enough but if you don't have a background in banking or at least dealing with a lot of cash, you can get overwhelmed very easily especially when it gets busy! Because there is little tolerance for mistakes, one can find themselves without a job within the first month, which happened to me.
Even if you manage to learn the job, it is tough to make it on just $10 an hour! Some pizza delivery drivers make more than that! The company also discourages "moonlighting" and with the extended hours at most branches, one would be unable to do so if they were full-time anyway.
All in all, it can be a good job for someone who is NOT the main breadwinner in the family and has some previous cash handling experience. If not, I would not recommend it for the reasons above.
Good culture, friendly co-workers, decent benefits
very low pay, high responsibility, and little tolerance for error
