Noman in Brooklyn, New York said: Hi, Thanks for the useful information. Could you also explain about the number of years of experience a person must have prior to applying for teller jobs? Because i have worked in a Retail chain store where cash handling/customer service was involved.
Will appreciate your feedback. Thanks

I have 7 years of experience with cash handling. I think it is the cash handling experience that is the most important (also customer service experience, but usually if you have cash handling experience you will have customer service experience too). They ask you how much you have handled on a daily basis in the interview as well. I worked as a receptionist at H&R block for three years and Hallmark for 4 years, so I have plenty of cash handling experience. They also ask if you were responsible for your own drawer (balancing the register that you were only on) and I dont think that it is necessary to have balanced your own drawer, but I think that helps as well (I balanced my drawer as well as others at hallmark). Long story short, as long as you have cash handling experience, I think that is all you need.

The interview went well, at least in my opinion, we all got a long pretty well..the interview was for about 35- 40 min, they asked me my school schedule, if i was familiar with banking hours, gave me their business card,
the only thing is that the one that was asking mostly all the questions was the assistant branch manager.. not the branch manager im not quite too sure why?

All of those are standard with every applicant. They want to know if you'll be available when they need you and they always hand out a business card.

The fact it took so long sounds good though. Did you stress how important customer satisfaction is?

And the way Chase does things is, while the Branch Manager is the manager of everyone, they primarily focus on the bankers. The Assistant Manager is in charge of the tellers and they report directly to the ABM instead of the BM.

I hope it works out for you!

If for some reason it doesn't, don't let it discourage you. Keep applying. I've had tellers that had to apply to multiple branches before getting a position, not because they didn't do well but because of circumstances out of their control.

If you decide to look around at other banks, go the credit union route. They pay better. Just do not apply for Bank of America or Wells Fargo. They have referral goals that will stress out even the best sales people and if you do not meet your quota you can be fired.

Good luck :)

When they say part time do they really give you part time or hours or could you get more? Does anybody know?

They mean 20 hours. If someone quits or they get an increase in FTE because of profits they may give you more hours but it's not always the case.

mash in Tacoma, Washington said: In response to Kayykayy,

I've worked for Chase for years. The hiring process goes like this:
The branch posts a position, the recruiter reaches out to and screens candidates, any applications of candidates that meet the necessary criteria are sent to the hiring manager and the hiring manager will call and interview ALL of them.

It isn't necessarily a bad thing that you haven't been contacted yet. They could be hiring for multiple positions even if only two were posted. Generally, they will have you interview with the District Manager as well since teller retention is a big focus right now so they could be making you wait because that person is very busy.

It took so long for me to hear back after my initial interview that I forgot all about it, so don't give up hope. The only thing I will say is I've seen many teller positions get posted, many people get interviewed, and then they end up going with an internal transfer. This is very common.

Was it a 20 or 40 hr position?

do tellers have a quota to make??

No! They care a lot about the customer experience so customer service is very important. They do not have quotas, although they will encourage you to refer products to bankers. That's why Chase is much better than some other big banks.

CAB in Fort Lauderdale, Florida said: I had an interview with a branch manager , and a few hours later received an email saying I was not selected to be interviewed does that mean I did not get the job or could it be a mistake ?

Did you apply to any other positions?

It could be from a different position...

Interview process vary depends on financial institutions and how big the companies are. I worked for KeyBank for several years and man they took forever! I have applied for positions at Chase and it's taking forever (not that I didn't expect that!). Maybe someone can give me some kind of feedback. I applied for the operation position in my area here in WA and received a call from recruiter a few days later for screening. Then, received a call from a branch manager in different area regarding to my application and I went in for an interview. I was never interviewed by the manager at the branch I applied for. It has been a week since I had an interview and my application still says that I'm under consideration. I have never experience this type of interview, is this normal in some areas??

Sounds like the first branch liked you but went with someone else who better fits their needs but passed on your information to another branch that is hiring. That's a good sign!

The manager stated that he had a few more applicants to interview and it has been a little over a week now since the interview. I hope I will get this position but this whole waiting process is nerve wracking.

This is not specifically about Chase, but I have 7 plus years of sales and cash handling experience and over a year of managerial experience along with an AS degree in Business Admin and Accounting. For some reason, every time I apply to a bank (any bank) I receive an email not even 2 days later telling me that other candidates had qualifications that matched their requirements more closely. Can someone PLEASE enlighten me on whats really going on because I walk in banks and see females that I know haven't stepped foot in college and its their first job. If my experience, which matches the job description of a bank teller, isn't enough then are you telling me that every bank only hires people who've worked at a bank? How did they get their experience and how am I supposed to get any?

Hey guys, so recently I've applied to a chase bank with also being referred to one of assistant managers I'm assuming, and I was just asking how the hiring process works because I've applied 2 times with a weeks apart; one with my college counselor and with my own experience. Overall I've applied and in around a min or less i get an email saying I don't get considered for the position.... does anyone know what exactly they "consider" for the position??? It seems to me really weird how I get recommended and still get declined..
any thoughts?

Believe it or not, that is the least of their concern. The primary trait you need as a bank employee is customer service, they want to make sure that the customers who are bringing you all of their money are comfortable doing so. It also opens the door for sales opportunities, which is definitely the second most important trait to have if you work in a bank. I have heard of people being hired whom had no cash handling experience, but strong customer service and sales experience. On the flip side, I have heard my manager come back from job interviews saying,"the only thing he/she has going for him/her is cash handling". In other words, that is not at all the most important thing to them. Don't get me wrong, it is important, but not as important as you think.

I have worked for chase for 8 years, it is not impossible to be full time but they give you a hard time to be full time. You most likely have to transfer to another location that has it. If you ever miss that opportunity like i did then you will stay as a part time teller for years. Hopefully its different by location, This happens in new york.
