When you apply for a teller position, you should try to convince the employer that you really want to have the job, that you didn’t apply just because you couldn’t find a better position.
What is more, try to think about the employer when answering this question. Tell them that you do not want to become a teller just because you like the working environment in a bank, and the reputation of their financial institution.
Try to find a better reason. You can tell them that you believe you would bring value to their team with your excellent customer service skills. Let’s look at some answers.
I have good communication skills and I enjoy talking to people. I believe I can become a great teller, and that is the reason why I apply for this job.
I am interested in banking products, and I like to help people. Position of a teller offers a unique chance to combine the two things in one job. It is definitely my first choice for an employment, since I am young and can not yet apply for any advanced role in banking.
