Financial Institution Tellers, Clerks, and Related Workers
Little or no employment growth is expected for financial institution tellers through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Employment growth has slowed because of competition from companies offering bank-like services, the increasing use of automatic teller machines, banking by telephone and computer, the declining number of bank branches, and other factors. Despite this prediction, opportunities should be excellent for tellers. Many job openings for tellers will come from the need to replace those who have left the field. Prospects will be best for tellers who have excellent customer service skills and are knowledgeable about a variety of financial services.
