In your own words, describe your role at the bank:
I open new accounts for checking, savings, IRA and business accounts. I help customers with account deposits/withdrawals, loan clerk duties, internet banking, credit applications and translating for Spanish-speaking customers.
How did you get into banking?
I always loved math in high school. My sister had heard about a job opening for a teller. Here I am, nine years later.
Why is banking a great career?
Banking is a great career because you have so many options. From teller, to bookkeeping, to loan clerk or loan officer. There are so many paths one can take in the banking world. It’s always evolving and there are new procedures/policies to learn all the time.
