Job Description for Relationship Banker

A relationship banker is an employee of a bank or other lending institution that is responsible for dealing with customers on a one-on-one basis. This may mean being assigned specific clients or patrons and subsequently handling all transactions and assistance for them, or it may simply mean that the banker works in the front of the bank, dealing with most personal interactions that require expert help that tellers cannot provide. This is a position that has become more crucial for banks as more financial transactions have shifted to computers and technology. Customers often want to be able to speak with a person about urgent/important matters, and a relationship banker fills that role by listening to complaints or problems and offering effective solutions to resolve the situation to the satisfaction of the customer.

Relationship Banker in Rhinelander:
"Entry-Level High Pressure Sales."
Pros: Nothing about my employer. Most of my customers are pleasant to deal with. I like helping them but do not want to sell them something that does not fit their needs.
Cons: I am underemployed with no room for advancement. My position is glamorized retail sales, requiring almost verbatim scripts; this is not a professional bank environment. Goals do not use demographic analysis to attain realistic quotas. In spite of building repeat relationships with clients and earning awards for top sales, my direct supervisor only focuses on the negative and micromanages (this applies to all employees). Teamwork and communication are rare and discouraged. The job duties themselves are not at all stressful but the constant negativity in our work environment is, resulting in high turnover and short-staffing.

Pros: Not too stressful. Relatively decent hours.
Cons: Pressure to perform consistently in terms of sales.

Cons: Restructuring of management is affecting everyone's way of thinking towards the company.
