I started as a teller.
It's a great entre level position because you get to learn so many things and you can use this as leverage when applying for promotions.
What I like about my workplace is that they hire from within.
In the event there is a job opening, it's advertised to employees first.
Again, from experience - I started as a teller.
11 months later, I applied for a promotion.
And I got it.
So, there is no specific timeline answer for how often tellers get promoted.
There are various factors that come into play and that influences timing.
I would advise, keep doing a good job and learn as much as you can so you can gain the experience and confidence which you can take when applying for a promotion.
Be on alert for future openings.
Hi Jonathan! My partner is currently a lead bank teller for one of the biggest banks in the country! He recently started with the company around March of this year and by the end of September he was promoted to lead teller! Some companies have you wait in a position for a full year before you can be promoted, BUT; if you are outdoing your performance metrics and also taking on extra task it could pay off for you sooner than you think! And that's actually something you take with working with any company hard work will always go along way!
