Friday SEQ (Search Engine Queries) September 29, 2006Posted by Teller in Banking.
Blog statistics inform you of your readers and, dear Readers, I’ve come to depend on them to see who’s visiting me. Over the past few months I’ve viewed a plethora of search engine queries. Some are disjointed words pieced together whilst others are honest inquiries that called out to me. I would like this space to be of use to all readers and subsequently I am going to compile some of the SEQs and try my best to provide helpful answers.
SEQ) how much do bank tellers make
Salaries vary from bank to bank. The starting salary is roughly KD450 but things you must take into consideration are:
- Educational Level: University graduates make more than high school graduates by KD50-200. If you factor in the governmental supplement add another KD100-200 to the original figure.
- Previous Experience: Entry-level employees make substantially less than their mid-level counterparts. Seniority and grade level can also cause general and evening shift salary to be higher.
- Evening Shift: This is one of the major salary boosters. Some banks require that employees work five evening shifts and others may request that you work two. Not only does the number of shifts you work raise your salary but also the bank you’re working at. The going rate for an evening shift (usually three hours long) is anywhere from KD8 to KD14.
- Incentives: One of the perks of the job is being rewarded for sales you generate. Again, this varies from bank to bank but the best banks reward you for every credit card you issue, every fixed deposit you bring in and every salary transferred. There are both personal incentives and branch incentives. This one is great for team players. Help your branch meet its target and you will benefit financially.
Take into account that not everyone starts on an even playing field and there are many more factors that I haven’t mentioned. An example is the teller I’ve heard of that started fresh from University and was getting KD650 + Governmental Supplement + Evening Shifts + Incentives. You can make a lot of money as a teller if you play your cards right. Of course you can also lose a lot of money if you are horrible at it so tread carefully!
I hope I answered your SEQ fully. Is there more information you need to know or would like to add to the subject? Let me know in the comments,
