I worked at U.S. Bank full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great coworkers, managers who seem to really care about your success and wellbeing, paid holidays and never have to work late night hours. There's plenty of room for career growth if you like the work, and working in a banking environment allows for a better understanding of personal finance.

Cons

It's a sales job through and through. Customer assistance is expected and required (as it should be), but the most "successful" tellers are the ones who convince the most customers to get loans by talking to a banker. There's nothing wrong with this--banks have to make money, but retail banks located in less-frugal areas are at a significant advantage, as US Bank is very picky as to who they loan money to. Standing in a teller window for an entire workday can get extremely boring. Customers who don't know how to handle their own money can get very angry, sometimes even borderline violent. Robberies are more frequent than one would expect, and can be pretty scary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tone down the "sales" aspect of the teller job, and let them focus their energy on assisting customers with everyday transactions.
