I have been trying as long as I have been out of banking to become a personal banker it has been something I have always wanted to do since working customer service at International Bank of Commerce. Watching them in action was like either I am over qualified or they are just slow.

Judging by your response, is almost like you did not read the experiences. Can you please take the time to read over them and offer PROFESSIONAL information.

I am very sorry that you feel that way, I strongly feel that my experience, my ambition would carry me very far in this world. The only thing I am experiencing is a serious setback in the ability to communicate with most business professionals.

Although appearing directionless at times, I am confident in myself but was more or less interested to know some professional information pretaining to the credentials that I have given.

Ok, well I will also add that your track record is not good. Across the span of about 7 jobs only 1 has been for at least 1 year. You MAYBE will be considered for a short term consulting role at JPMC but you have no way at Fulltime employment.

That's the problem that I have. I worked at computer exchange for almost 2 years, IBC for 6 months abd WAMU for about 6 months as well. Left IBC because of car troubles and WAMU was only temp work. The problem that I am encountering is when I worked for the Federal Reserve I was terminated because they did not bring my paycheck, so I complained to the staffing company supervisor, when I worked for the customs department I was fired because I just returned from some cross country venture trying to get back in the Army. Although there are federal mandates that say me firing someone for joining the service is a federal offense clearly they did not care. but for the most part most employers and all employers have shrugged me off at almost every single job that I apply too. It could be Kroger and they would still turn me down after a week. It is not in my interest to leave work after a week, but when your working for a staffing company that intels drugs use or telecom scams then it makes it kind of hard.

This is just getting old, I know my experience soars far above most other candidates. However the place I work for now, and the consumer guide and the office at AIG was just really really shady. There is something about the atmosphere that just seems odd. Not saying they are illegal, however someothing just seems shady. But needless to say I have tried and passed all assesment tests, but in the interviews I went to at WAMU and JPMoragan - the WAMU lady reemed be fully for even considering being a personal banker. And the main HR ladies were really nice, however the branch managers treated me like a criminal wich I am not.

Granted my laid back approach doesn't seem to flow well with people who are flaky.

Well apparently I am a moron who cannot even pass the online assesment. I do not even remember taking the tests. Boy she reemed me pretty good about it too, I was like what am I doing wrong. I work hard and dress nice. What does it take to actually pass a test or something. I feel moronic.
