I would say it's a great place to start. The part time teller position has been eliminated so if you're like me who is not used to working fulltime it can suck. Days are long. Half days a good. You'd get off around 2 but that means you work Saturday. It can get bored at times so it's all about finding something to do to help the time pass. The tellers use Corelation which is extremely out of date. Coming from a much larger bank, it's extremely different. Everything is manual.
Adding checks is done manually. It's not just about scanning a deposit slip with all the checks and having a total come up on the screen. Again everything is manually. Learning about hold policies can be overwhelming since tellers are the ones who place the hold on a check. We also have to remember to manually apply a fee to things such as cashier's checks. Nothing is done automatically. Hour lunch, small cash amount in draw, tellers have to do ATM transactions which really surprised me and get an override from management wherever an ATM transaction has cash which is ridiculous. Unless you're a Teller III. Small company so I've met pretty much everyone in every department.
Some managers are nice, from what I hear the benefits are good, co workers want you to succeed
Loooong days (8:30- 5:15), no days off during the week, must be 40 hours, tedious and outdated technology, complete ATM deposits, the pay seems okay....
