Starting salary for a teller supervisor is supposedly anywhere between $23,000-28,000. I got $24,000 with full benefits and incentives. The incentives give me about an extra $200-300 a month, assuming the branch hits its sales goals.

As a manager making goals most months you make about $55,000.00 with salary + bonuses. Included in the package is full benefits. Hard work but well worth it.

pay i slow compared to other banks... good luck getting incentive since it takes the whole branch to produces, and also your incentive will be taxed as a luxary in IL which is bs since everyone knows tcf is the lowest paying bank in the chicago land area, hence the high turnover and countless staffing issues. don't become salaried you will still be low paid and worked over 40 hrs a week,

How can the incentive pay be taxed as a luxury tax?

I have an interview with a TCF recruiter this evening, but after doing some research on the company, it seems like working for TCF would be a hassle. Let me elaborate:

From what I've read online, it seems that TCF loses a lot of online transfers from one account to the other. Sometimes it loses deposits made in person as well. It also seems to require a customer to go in to the bank for major issues (closing the account, disputing a fraudulent charge, etc). Finally, it seems to go by the "take withdrawls first and then put in deposits and charge an overdraft for each transaction" school of business.

With this in mind, being that I am applying for a teller position, and that I am pretty strong on my customer service, I would feel compelled to warn a potential customer of all of these issues. I feel like I would have to tell them to do a screen print of all transfers online, get receipts of deposits made in person, and close your account well before you move away from the local area. Of course, being this upfront and honest with them would probably make a potential customer think twice about signing onto an account with me, thereby hurting TCF's bottom line (and let's be honest, it's a bank, it's only concern is the bottom line).

So is this fairly standard in most banks? Are there banks that would be less stressful to work with than others in this regard? Are there banks that DO emphasize customer service more than or at least as much as rampant sales and fees?

I have a phone interview with Wells Fargo tomorrow, likely for a similar position. I'm mainly trying to get into this field for the experience, so I may still go with TCF only long enough to get about a year of experience and a few certifications under my belt. But I worry if working for them would make me less attractive to other (I assume better) banks?

I know most jobs are what you make of them. But corporate culture also plays a part in deciding where you want to work. I like to help people

You can't really offer exceptional customer service if you don't feel good about the company you are working for and you really can't increase your sales if you don't have the customer service to back up your products. I realized that within my first week working at TCF. I was looking forward to developing my sales skills and learning all the functions of retail banking, but didn't realize that I had a horrible team and company backing me up. I can elaborate with my example if you're concerned, but this bank's environment lays the ground work for disasters to strike anywhere and at anytime.
This is not the place to work if you care about customers or your own self-respect.
