A Repetitive Job with very little opportunity for advancement
Full-Time Teller (Current Employee), Succasunna, NJFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: sometime free lunches, some great people
Cons: short breaks, lack of good management, gossip between branches
A typical say in retail banking is very repetitive and can either be very busy or very slow. The people you work with is what keeps the job somewhat entertaining. Some branches may have great people to work with and other may have people you want no communication with (outside of work). There is no hard part to the job as long as you don't get lazy. – more... Management needs to back up and support employees better. There isn't really much opportunity at all for advancement but even so, the increase in pay isn't work the advancement most of the time. – less
