Mutsy-A cashier salary is usually minimum wage, but many tellers that work in banks start off at significantly higher wages than that.
Most start at about $10 an hour or so, but many banks offer premium pay of $12 to $13 per hour for tellers that can work part time peak hours when the bank is busiest.
These cashiers do not usually get benefits as those are reserved for full time employees. However, there is a lot of upward mobility potential in a bank as part time tellers can be promoted to full time tellers and then head teller.
In addition, they can continue their career and be promoted to a platform associate. The platform associate is the sales representative that opens new accounts and tries to sell other banking products.
These positions pay about $40,000 to start and have bonus potential as well as advancement possibilities.
Many platform associates move on to become branch managers, or specialize in a specific area in banking such as securities investments or insurance sales. Banks often offer tuition assistance for jobs that entail additional educational training like this.
