So, as I said, the past month has been very busy...and a big part of that is my new job! I have been working as a teller at a local bank for about a month now. I absolutely LOVE it! Seriously! I look forward to going to work everyday.
I have to admit that being a teller is not really like I thought it would be. I expected that I would help customers with deposits and withdrawals, and then a lot of waiting until the next customers came in. Haha...it is so NOT like that! There is so much more that I didn't even know about. We also process loan payments, do all mailed in transactions, phoned in transactions, look up account information for customers, sell cashiers checks and travel cards, do start up transactions for the loan officers and personal bankers, and check other employees' work. And I didn't even consider the large deposits and change orders that are dropped off by the restaurants, doctors, and casinos in town. In the very little down time, I try to work on the online courses the company requires employees to take to learn banking regulations. It's definitely busy and fast paced...but I love it!
I learn something new everyday, and am starting to feel confident in doing transactions correctly. I'm very excited to see where this new adventure leads me.
