Poor training, robot mgmt, goals hard to reach
Teller I (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – March 27, 2016
Float teller in the metro area, training was a week in front of a screen while listening to transactions around you. Teller school was a mix of new people and seasoned tellers, bankers in a "let's make believe we're in a bank", then off to a branch to hopefully learn what it's really like. You must get referrals, cheeks in the seat, but you have to talk to people who don't have the time, don't know you since you are bounced around weekly, angry that they have waited in line
for a simple transaction, but staffing is based on customer flow. Counting, balancing, getting along with new and different people every week, high turnover, most of the people I worked with were
nice, only a few would not help or feel it was not their responsibility.
Many jaded people who have been in the job too long to really care, like the on the road mgmt people. PTO was good, but the $$ for the stress, can make the same or more elsewhere. Not what I thought
it would be....very conservative....
Supposed to have breaks, never happens, low $$ for the stress
