Pros: great benefits and pay
Cons: long hours
A typical day at work involved being on a phone with customers going over their bank accounts. I would help with transferring money from accounts to accounts, helping the customer located their money, open/close accounts and other banking related jobs. Management wasn't much help in the learning process as I learned from computer modules. I learned – more... one important thing; how to handle upset customers. The hardest part of the job was having customers yell at me for losing their money when it truly wasn't my fault. They were either over-drafting their accounts or transferring money to wrong accounts or lost their debit cards. I'm not really sure what the enjoyable part of this job was other than when you were able solve the issue or had a customer that was just happy with the service they received. – less
