I had both the group interview and the 1-on-1 interview yesterday. Everything went out positive, even told me I can work on these specific days. But, they didn't say I was hired or not. Do you know how long it'll take them to contact me? And do you know if San Francisco's teller get paid more?

AH2011 in Pomona, California said: I am looking into becoming a teller at Wells Fargo I have worked at a cafe and restaurant but I want a different experience. Is it a good job? Is it super stressful? what if you dont always meet the quotas even if you offer them to every customer do they really fire you? Is it hard to meet their quotas?

don,t even think ab out wells fargo. i worked for wachovia and then the transition to wells. big differene, much more pressure for a teller to met sales credits, so much. raises are terrible and you are not appreciated at all. belive me no one is happy there. worked there 3 years.

I worked at Key Bank in upstate NY starting off with no experience at $10. Another teller, who started with me and was horrible, was making $10.75 so I actually went up to my boss and said I needed a raise. It was very hush hush and took minimal effort as my performance was outstanding compared to hers. I have since moved to GA and was offered a position at Bank of America for $11.50 an hour with a year of teller experience. When you get a call from a recruiter and they ask is the pay is ok with you, do not be afraid to ask if it is negotiable. You pretty much got the job if they called and told you this, so it will not help. Be assertive! Hope this helps.

getting a job as a teller could be tricky. I've been searching since last september. I've done so many phone interviews, but most of the times they try to locate you in a different location than the one you apply since they fill the positions very quickly. You just have to keep trying, and applying.

When I worked as a bank teller, I started out a 9.50. I got a small raise to 9.67. Tellers DO NOT make much.

ATI ......Accreditation in Frisco, Texas said: Far to little to risk your life of being robbed at gun point. Not that uncommon around the US even in low crime areas.

Bank robbers typically use notes that imply guns/bombs etc, rather than actually using a gun. Jail time for implied weapon is much less than if they actually use a weapon & they know it!

Did you like being a bank teller? I'm thinking about applying for a teller job. I have some experience but not much with money... But none as a bank teller.... But need a better job with better hours. I'm not one for putting myself out there too much but I can try. When you started was it hard?

I am so glad I stumbled onto this website!! Learned a lot from all of those postings. I am looking for a job as a teller part-time or full-time. Because of what I have learned I'm going to begin looking at Credit Unions first (thank you Nicki!). I am going back to school, so I'd like to make enough money to make it worth my while. Just closed my own business after 13 years, victim of the economy. I was a teller many, many years ago, I'm sure things have changed a lot since then, but I did enjoy it. Thanks for all of the info everyone!

Hey. Lots of helpful advice here. Have a question considering BOA. So I went to an open house two weeks ago, had an interview with one of the managers, received an assessment thru email a few days ago, completed it and today a recruiter tried reaching me but my phone didn't work. She sent me an email telling me to get back to her.
What are the next steps? I have previous xp working as a teller for Wells, made 10.5/hr there and know what the sales pressure is. It's really hard to find anything right now, but honestly speaking, I can't get back to making so little money, especially that it would be part time. Can I negotiate the rate? I was thinking 12-13/hr. What do you guys think?

Hi, I noticed you were from CT as well. I was just wondering if you could help me out a bit. I applied recently to Wells Fargo in Meriden for a part-time teller. I've done the phone interview and have a face-to-face interview on Thursday. During the phone interview the woman said starting pay was $12/hr, which I think is quite reasonable. I have no bank experience, just customer service. How bad is the sales part??? It's kind of frightening to me as I did not know that was such a big deal. As to your question: I would absolutely ask for $12/hr because that's what Wells Fargo in Meriden just told me the starting pay was on Monday!

The sales... Don't where to start. I worked for Wells in the Midwest where Wells has been for a very long time and I think it's gonna be a little different out east at least for a while. Wells took Wachovia which you prolly know about and I don't think it's in their best interest to make really drastic changes. I have made a few observations though by going to different branches out here.
In Wells in the Midwest you are supposed to always introduce yourself, use the customer's name and ALWAYS engage in a conversation to establish rapport and then find out what the customer might need - what you can sell him. You cannot simply say I recommend this and that product because you talk like a typical salesman. Out here nobody tried talking to me, if only for a few seconds, about sth different than "Do you want your receipt"? etc., nobody treated me as a valued customer by using my name and trying to make me feel "at home". To sum up, I don't know how they train their employees here cause without small talk you are NOT going to make a sale.
Back to your question. Yes, you have to sell. They raise the bar all the time. Your manager is on your case all the time.Lots of micromanaging. Your manager observes you and rates your service 80 % of the time. If you've done well one day, it will only matter that day, next day you're supposed to perform same or even better. Lots of questions like, how r u going to meet your goal today etc. If you don't perform the first quarter, you might get away with it cause it's your rookie period, no mercy on the next one - you will be written up.
I wouldn't have minded working for Wells if I hadn't had mindless, brainwashed direct manager who was unable to deliver constructive criticism. Am not trying to discourage you cause a lot depends on this very intelligent manager who can back you up, lead you to advance and gives you fair feedback. Sales are doable, again it all depends on how your manager leads you...Good luck!

Thank you for your response! I've been reading things on this website, as well as different forums about the sales aspect and it does make me nervous but I won't let it scare me off--haven't even been hired yet! I just figure if I try it and don't like it I'll stick it out for as long as I can while trying to find something different. I have no children to support thankfully and I plan on going back to school asap(I just have an associates right now)so it's not the end of the world. I'm trying to stay positive, who knows I might like it! Good luck to you too!

That's the right spirit to adopt. My advice is to be genuine to customers and for sure you'll make sales. Hopefully, your managers will be really supportive and true leaders.
I know I keep talking about managers a lot, but I do believe certain skills can't be taught, you just kinda have to be born with a leader gene.
Btw, Wells offers great benefits and they do pay for some of the school tuition so you should take advantage of that too.
It's natural to worry, especially if you have not done a lot of sales before, but if you have xp in customer service, you should do fine. Take care.

I would definitely go to their website. Also, look out for open houses and career fairs.
That is exactly how I was hired. Went to an open house in one of the branches, had an interview with one of the executives there and left my resume there. Few weeks after that, they sent me an email that started all the recruitment process: online assessment, chat with a recruiter, hr, interview with a branch manager. I do not recommend applying through Career Builder. Although, I do recommend posting your resume there cause then you get notifications about open houses/career fairs. Going to the branch is not a bad idea either, especially if you have an account at the bank you are interested in. You have a nice chat with a teller, find out if they are hiring and then ask whether you can use her name as a referral. Doubt they'll say no, cause if you get hired, they get a bonus for referring a person who got hired. Good luck.

Thank you very much. You pointed out some good options. I have been trying to apply on the banks website but they either have no job positions or they dont have what Im interested in. I will definatly look for job fairs in my area. Thank you.!
