Millions of people around the U.S. use banks to manage their money and financial needs. Bank tellers are essential employees that most people associate with their bank of choice. Bank tellers deal with customers on a daily basis performing a variety of money handling procedures. Bank tellers must have at least a high school diploma. Many bank tellers have completed some college coursework and some have bachelor degrees in accounting, business, or liberal arts. Employment of bank tellers is projected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 13% from 2006 to 2016. The opening of new banking institutions and banks extending their hours will drive job growth.
