Senior Teller Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Senior Teller?

Senior Teller in Salisbury:
"Home town."
Pros: Feels like family
Cons:

Senior Teller in Newark:
Pros: Working close to home and my coworkers.
Cons: The pay that I am getting is not the greatest.

Senior Teller in Bloomington:
Pros: The ease of the work flow. Not feeling overwhelmed.
Cons: The seasonal influx of students. Being dependent on coworkers.

Senior Teller in Newark:
"Great place to work!"
Pros: I absolutely love working for BofA. They have so much opportunity for growth and offer so much to their employees. I know I read articles before my first interview a few years back saying how cut throat it was and things such as that but it is not the case. It is definitely a competitive environment, you have to be the best to move up, but I think that is the way that it should be. You should have to work for your accomplishments not just get handed promotions because you have been with a company for a year. If you are driven and want to learn and succeed they offer so much training and development programs for you to utilize to move up. There are also so many departments that if one is not for you or satisfying you can always look elsewhere after your first year with the bank. Highly recommend!
Cons: Because of the nature of a contact center environment the role can become tedious. There are still plenty of things that you can do between customer interactions to keep yourself engaged if you are willing to participate in development exercises.

Senior Teller in Glendora:
"How long it would take for advancement."
Show good leadership and good communication skills.

Cons: 1. Very brain-numbing repetitive transactions that become extremely annoying after doing them so long. I need more intellectual challenges. 2. Annoying, rude and crazy customers. 3. Standing up the whole entire time. 4. Very difficult to climb up the ladder outside of retail banking. 5. Crazy referral and sales pressure expectations. 6. Knowing that any little mistake could cost you your job. 7. Working with lazy people. 8. I hate being on the floor while wearing a suit. Because of change orders, night drops etc... I'm constantly on the floor arranging, lifting and opening boxes of coins. Yet I'm expected to wear a suit.
