Citizens Citizens Teller in Somerville, Massachusetts
Starting Salary: $16 / hour and up
Transactions aren’t at the heart of banking — relationships are. That’s why we’re not looking for just any teller. We’re looking for Citizens Tellers. What sets these colleagues apart? You look customers in the eye and greet them in the branch lobby with a smile — just like you would a friend or a neighbor. Whether you’re processing transactions or collaborating with your branch team to meet a customer’s needs, you provide a memorable, meaningful experience to every customer, every day.
Are you a great listener? Do you enjoy meeting new people or strengthening existing relationships? If so, you’re Made Ready to be a Citizens Teller. It takes an energetic attitude, an ability to listen intently and a desire to get to know your customers — who they are, what they need, which ones want to get in and out quickly vs. those who want to catch up. Using your knowledge of our award-winning mobile app and online banking options, you’ll simplify banking for your customers. You will confidently cash checks, process withdrawals and deposits.
