I enjoyed this type of work, but not the sales part of it.
Bank Teller (Former Employee) – Round Lake Beach, IL – December 1, 2016
I loved being a bank teller. I enjoyed the work and counting money was fun, my drawer was always exact because we counted out money to the customers a total of 3 times, 1st time to ourselves, then so on. The hours were decent. However, at the time, I was expected to 'sell checking accounts'. The tellers were given a quota to meet a goal every month. This was stressful. Customers came in to open an account on their own without any selling, so I would still somehow meet my goals. I eventually had to find something else because I could not handle the sales pressure. I also did not get any benefits, and it did not pay well, otherwise I would have stayed, if not for these few issues.
Pressure to sell checking accounts. No health benefits. Extremely low pay.
