I view Astoria Bank as a great bank which has allowed me to advance within my career. A typical day in retail banking at Astoria Bank consists of sales, service and operations. In retail banking, I'm responsible for introducing our clients to needs based products while upholding the service and operational responsibilities as well.
Over the years I've learned how to be a well-rounded employee who is able to function within all roles of a branch employee. Overcoming obstacles is both the hardest and most enjoyable part of my job. It's hard to manage a branch with staffing issues while also being responsible for sales, service and operations. However, it's also very rewarding to be able to survive and produce positive results under such circumstances.
