Financial Institution Tellers, Clerks, and Related Workers
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for financial institution tellers will grow more slowly than the average for all careers through 2018. Despite this prediction, opportunities should be favorable for tellers. Until recently, there was a projected decline caused by competition from companies offering bank-like services, the increasing use of automatic teller machines, banking by telephone and computer, and other factors. However, the increasing number of bank branches, together with longer hours and more services offered to draw in more customers, will require more tellers. Prospects will be best for tellers who have excellent customer skills and are knowledgeable about a variety of financial services. Many job openings for tellers will come from the need to replace those who have left the field.
