I have a few friends who have a BA in Economics and a minor in Business Administration. These guys had no banking experience and very limited sales experience but managed to get jobs as Personal Bankers. Their banks even paid for their certification and licensing (In Canada)

I understand you need some sales experience and I have 5 years of it from working at a retail store. I just got a job as a teller and to be honest, I really don't like it. I like dealing with people for the most part but it's repetitive and boring and I cannot advance for another 2 years at least says my manager.

I'm almost 30 and I'm so behind in life. I just want to get a decent salary so I can get my own home. Still living with parents and really ashamed of it.

Any advice or comments?

Hey man do not feel like that. I just got my BBA, and i am working part time in a library. I graduated 2 months ago and there are no jobs available here in south texas. I want to become a personal banker, but there are limit opportunities. Education matters, but i think it is best to have sales experience. I hope you get the job that you want.

rory mcvay in ovid, Michigan said: you do not need very much experience to be a personal banker. they are looking for salespeople, plain and simple. Experience would be helpful, but simply be energetic, motivated, and persuade the interviewers that you have sales skills and work very well with people.

From someone who has been in the industry for awhile, i'll give you a heads up. Its not a very honest job, if you are the type of person who will learn what better products exist out there that they don't allow you to sell. If it doesn't earn you/them a commission, often it is 'selling away' even though a product would be better for the custoemr. but I could go on all day...

please do go on

The banking business is more about experience. In fact, i got a BBA in Management, and was not able to get a PB job with chase because of lack of experience as a banker. I had the 2 interviews,but at the end the chose someone with no degre. In the other hand he had a 5 years in banking. So you can get any job at banking as long you have good experience, and if you have a degree plus experience you can move to financial advisor, PB and more.

Good Luck

I have a question I recently got laid off a bank i been without a job for three months and my severance is over, im living out of unemployment. They are opening a bank close to my house from the same company i was laid off, but i will have to be a teller which will be a huge cut on what i was already making, the good thing is that i could keep my time with the bank which was 4 yr,. The problem is i heard that as a teller you need to do referralls and im really bad at selling things.
Will it be worth to apply?

Well I'm thinking about my job and I came across this link which I ws happy to see was relatively new and possibly active.

I went to university for a Bachelor in Business Management with honors with distinction with such accomplishments such as being in the financial post for business strategy awards.

While I've held some jobs with the government part time during school and working at my parents business, I never got an actual permanent position.

I want to say it's because of this economic position, because back 2 years ago at the diploma level people were being offered jobs as assistant branch managers and even a year ago at the degree level the vice president of provincial bank said that people with a business degree can go straight into management.

So after searching for a few months getting ready for my university grad and the start of my career, although it has been noted to me by many banking superiors that I am extremely educated, the only role in the bank that is available due to the recession is a part time teller.

So after all my hard work, I become a bank teller. The plus side is, it really is good to know the foundation of banking. The bad part is, I'm bad at sales myself (yes you are judged by referals)and the role does not utilize my strengths I honed in school. Still you have to look at it this way, you're still working, any experience is better than any, and at they very least it's still a feather in your cap for the future. I can say "oh yes i was a bank teller" and not being a snob "i never did so low a job". People respect you more for it.

By the way being a teller is a lot harder than anyone could imagine. You get paid very little, and you accept a lot of responsibility. You know when you don't balance, you don't get paid extra for trying to find out what went wrong. The bank's view is "we shouldn't have to pay for your mistake". That's an element not every job has. I really don't like the Assistant Branch Manager.

The Assistant Manager has the same credentials as I do, but is only 3 years older and has touted to me "she went straight into management" after school.

Talk about mean, she's already run me down, told me she doesn't find I'm good enough for the role of teller, said she would have much rathered had the other guy who I incidentally replaced, and said she finds I think slow (and demonstrated it by slowly turning her hand to mimic my brain).

I thought all my accomplishments would have helped me gain a little more niceness from someone I would have liked to look up to. Now I'm just afraid.

I could go on and on and explain everything there is from the lunchroom gossip to the office politics.

But I'll save that for another post.

You tell that manager her behavior towards you is harassment and if it continues you fill make a complaint for harassment. Then send an e-mail to the corporate office explaining the situation.
Do not tolerate that behavior. She has already tested you much you will tolerate - found out, and is going to continue.

I suggest you go get an AA in court reporting - and become your own personal banker for your own money - which you will have plenty of.

I'm a teller, and I think it can be really fun... You mainly have to be good at talking, referring, engaging your customer...it's half customer service, half sales, and half technical and mathematical stuff... I'm make decent money as a teller especially if I do good in sales/referrals... I have a BA in Applied Communication...never thought I'd going into banking... I'm going for a personal banker in the next 6 months, then I'd like to move over to wholesale banking...hehe maybe energy trading or stocks...investments... :D

you actually dont need to do that. just apply at other banks. you will have to deal with a smaller pay cut.plus you will be able to keep your same position with respect.
i got laid off last month from a bank as a teller. after about i got another job, same position and same pay.

kjo in Phoenix, Arizona said: You really need to be thankful that you have a job at all, and a job as a teller is a great foot in the door. I was a teller and became a PB in a year. Its better to build a good reputation. I know many banks do not like what they call "Bank hoppers" Which is people that keep switching banks. They like the personal bankers to come straight from the teller line. This is also good because, if you ever wanted to go farther than a PB you have the teller side as well as the platform side. This will make you a strong manager. Just hang in there and be positive. They are not going to move you up unless you are meeting your goals and bring a good energy to work.

Couldn't agree more. My plan is something similar to that but you never know. I can provide great energy when my co-workers are not observing me. I could also get shy and talk less when they start to observe me.

I just have to gain that confidence when I'm working in front of them.

Sometimes its just right place, right time. I know many people with lucrative careers they never set out to get. In most if not all scenarios though experience will always trump college degree and above all knowing someone on the inside beats everything else no contest. So in order of hire: insider > experience > happenstance > college.

So to answer the original question: No, you do not need teller experience to be a banker. However, being a teller gets you connected to the right people and puts you in the right places. It builds your network.

Ale; if you have been a teller for 3 years; then that is on YOU... if you arent producing; then why would they move you to a pb1? and if you were producing above everyone else then they would be motivating you for that.

the CSSR is a stepping stone to the PB1.
so if they offer you that; take it and be greatful.

I have to stay; i cant agree with all of the negative comments.

I have been with the company 6 months; and have already been picked up for the PB1 position.
but the reason why; is because i lead my store; district; region. ect.

if you arent pulling in banker numbers from the teller line off top; then you have no business being a banker; and you should stop complaining about it.

One major element that has not been mentioned is that it's becoming almost a requirement to be bilingual which is perfect for me. I don't have a degree and I managed to get into PB because they preffred bilinguals so if you are bilingual appreciate what strong of an asset that is abd use it towards your advantage. Knowing two languages means you cover twice the ground by being able to tend to our Spanish speaking friends. The DFW area is the perfect place :)

Starving for Work in Houston, Texas

Well Friends. I too am interested in becoming a personal banker and I do not have a lot of finance experience at this time. I do have an associates in mathematics and I have a few years in different types of retail sales and I worked for the Census Bureau for about a year in the finance and payroll department, and, I have a good bit of customer sevice experience through working retail and various temporary positions in addition to being a 10 year Air Force veteran. Does some of this sound like I even stand a chance at becoming a Personal Banker? I received notice about positions with an agency and I am very interested in it. I hear conflicting information about whether or not a person will need a Bachelors or not so that is causing me some concern. I did do an application and I took the assesment on line. Immediately after finishing the assesment and application, I was contacted by one of their representatives and told that they want to set up a phone interview and to further investigate my work experience. I could really use some tips and info on how to score big in this type of interview. What kinds of questions might they ask? What kinds of things should I focus on to make sure they have a positive memory of me after the interview? This is enough for now I'm sure. Anything will help. Thanks all!!!
I am a good worker, all I need is a job!!!

You and I have the same story.I am 28 years old and I also have 5 years sales experience in retail.I am online looking at teller positions at the moment.The best thing to do is get a degree.I am going to school to become an accountant.Take 6-8 out of your life,get a degree,and quadruple your salary.

Starving For Work,

It sounds to me like you are qualified. At least qualified enough to be apply and be invited for an interview. After that it is up to your people skills. Being a personal banker does not require having a degree. It is preferred, but not required. In fact I have seen people with a degree who could not get the position, but someone without a degree but plenty of experience get it. They prefer experience. Good luck to you.

Thank you so much for your reply. It was very helpful. If I could bother you with one more question, what kind of questions do they ask during the interview? From reading posts online, I have found that the interviews consists largely of role playing and discussing your past work experience and how that experience can best help JP Morgan. If this is true what kind of role playing do they ask you to do? I have heard that they want to test your customer service skills, personality, comfort with taking directions and learning new materials during an interview. Please tell me if any of this is true, none of it, anything you got!!! Please include any information that you have that could be useful during an interview. Thank you again!

I have 3 years experience in the mortgage lending business as a broker, but it has been five years since my involvement in the financial services industry. After returning to college to attain my degree and spending a couple years in an unrelated field, I am now venturing back into the finance industry for the stability that a bank job can offer. I am qualified to sell in the PB market, but feel that it is best if I bite the bullet and acquire experience from the ground up...a teller position. The teller job is available at large bank, and if chosen, I feel that my advancement would be dependent upon my progress as a salesman, my enthusiasm for learning, and my ability to build rapport with the customers. How soon can I get promoted to PB??? I am hearing two years, but I have also heard much sooner...just wanting some clarification on the timeline, bc teller is obviously a stepping stone-I hope-thanks

Greetings everyone;

I studied general accounting and a month before I graduated from college, I landed my first accounting position. I will say this. I got hired ahead of the college grads who had a higher education, MB Finance and CPA and the reason was attitude. Customer service is always key because the hiring manager is discerning the candidate who will have the qualities to submit to management, provide customer service not only to the clients but to fellow co workers and someone who is seeking to work with that employer for the long run.

College is great for getting an education, nothing wrong with that. But college didn't teach me how to make more money or develop people skills, in fact it got me in debt. In these here and now times, if you're going to work with the public, especially interface with management and co workers, hard knocks experience in customer service and developing people skills will make you more money, bar none. I'm not saying it's been a smooth ride with silver linings in my career because I failed so much with my attitude, especially toward management, but learning lessons paid off and after refining my people skills in the work place and public, it blessed me along the way and saved my jobs more times than getting laid off during these hard employment times in my work.

I'm not the savior but only sharing my work experience and hope this helps you good folks who may read this.

In college, I worked as a bank teller and I "slopped the hogs" in a restaurant. I started with no experience in either job.

I quickly learned that dealing with the public was not for me. Now its all email and voice mail and it suits my personality much better.

I always leave a good tip at a restaurant as waitressing, in my opinion, is a horrible job. You really have to have a personality for it.

Have you considered using a recruiter such as CUER? (Credit Union Employment Resources) - they are located near the Galleria- they are an excellent source & very knowledgeable. They helped me land a great job. Most interviews in banking do consist of role playing & likewise, they do consist of questions that relate how YOU can help their bank/credit union/financial institution strive in the downturn of the economy. Role playing questions can be related to how you would cross sell, how would you handle a disgruntled client, etc. They always ask you your WEAKNESS- always make it a positive! They like motivation & up-beat personalities. A great book that helped me with basic interview questions was "what color is your parachute?" - a lot of the questions asked in interviews are reviewed in this book. Likewise some banks (I won't mention names) have entrance exams. A lot of those exams are more psychological in nature- like, how would you respond to certain situations, how would you cross sell, sometimes products-- the tests also do check for basic math skills (usually)-- HCC in Houston also has an excellent & ABA certified banking school. Sadly, a lot of the banking industry also is WHO you know-- best advice, go into banks & talk to people when looking for a job. Talk to employees & research the company. Look professional (banking likes tradition) & have a resume in hand.

Hi Folks help me,

Brother can you tell me how did you manage to get job in Bank. I had 2 years of banking experience with B-com, MBA Finance and One Canadian Post graduation diploma. I have also some candian experience.
Few of my friends came with 12 grade study and did 1 year study in Canada. Its same like my canadian diploma. They all got job in bank but when I applied for teller then CIBC , TD and BMO says you are not suitable for the position(Through emails). Person who recently got job in CIBC bank is fresher with 1 single diploma. I am holding 3 degree with 2 years of top 10th bank in India and one of my degree is Canadian still looking for job in any Bank.
My question is very simple.
Do you guys getting job through your personal contacts with branch Managers?

Because online application have no value. It is my opinion. Its been 8 month I am applying for bank jobs online. So tell me for my sanctification that I should stop wasting my time on online application or just find any person in the branch that can help me to get job. It is strange fresher without finance degree are being hired in the bank. It really sucks. Banks making fools and helping only those who have personals contact and ignoring others. I just landed in and have no strong contact with any one. Kindly tell me whether CIBC considers only referred people or not.
Contact me : y2kala2003@yahoo.co.in
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Congratulations, Gart1977! "Super sharp and a good interviewee". I get you. It's all about interviewing and I doubt you fabricated your presentation. That hiring manager had to make a decision and get the best candidate (he's accountable to his hire up). Wells Fargo is a good institution and have had good financial dealings with them. I wish you the best in your new job next Monday!

Romato in Brownsville, Texas said: Hey man do not feel like that. I just got my BBA, and i am working part time in a library . I graduated 2 months ago and there are no jobs available here in south texas. I want to become a personal banker, but there are limit opportunities. Education matters, but i think it is best to have sales experience. I hope you get the job that you want.

I have two Masters, a Bachelors, and an Associates degree and sitting in an Admin position.
