I am hoping that some of you can help me with some questions I have.
I am going in for an interview for a Bank Teller position at Regions Bank. My questions are following.
How much does a bank teller get paid hourly with no banking experience but with 8 years of customer service / sales experience?
I know that some banks are open on Saturdays. Do banks naturally pay their tellers extra for weekends?

Thanks in advance

Go for your interview, pass the teller test and then ask HR. Good luck!

I don't know where you live, but here in Phx they make about $9-10/hr. I don't think they make more on Sat, but who knows. You can always check careerbuilder.com and see if there are jobs posted with the pay.

Usually if a teller is required to work Saturday, they either get comp time or a set flat pay (like $50 for 4 hours). How much they get depends on the area, but $9 to $10 an hour is fair. If you're lucky, in 3 to 6 months, you go salary.

My wife's a teller who sometimes works Saturdays. She gets paid time and a half for hours worked over 40 in a week.

She's worked at a very well known national bank as a teller - and hated every second of it.

Now she works at a local credit union - and loves every second of it. According to her, it's a day and night difference.

Good luck!

Why did she hate working for a bank?

When I worked as a teller (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth ), I didn't get paid extra for working Saturdays unless that put me over 40 hours. And my bank did not like paying overtime ... Usually if I worked Saturdays, I'd have Tuesdays or Wednesdays off.

I have a sil who just left a bank teller position. Main reason being that management is pushing the hard sell. In other words, the bank teller expected to put *cheeks in seats* on bank products. There was a certain number/ratio that had to be referred daily.

As she said of the frustration of it, "if I'd wanted to be a sales person, I'd of gone into a sales field, and likely been making scads more money doing it".

Thanks for that input. I work in retail. At Macy's. And I HATE it. I don't dislike the selling part as much but the hours. We close at 11.00OPM some nights. My husband works late evenings too so and we both work every weekend. Try to find childcare at 11.00pm. Right now we are paying almost $700.00 in childcare a month for just 3 days a week. Thats Saturday, Sunday and Friday. This fall that will increase to $800.00 + because of rate changes. I know that a bank wants you to sell and I think I can deal with that. Nothing can be worse then working retail and it's hours.
