Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],

My name is Peter Long, and I saw your job listing in The Sacramento Bee yesterday. I’m an experienced bank teller with over eight years in the industry, and I’m very interested in continuing my career at [Target Company]. Although I love the banking aspect of being a teller, my area of emphasis has always been customer service. I recently visited my local [Target Company] branch in West Sacramento because my friend banks there, and I was blown away by the friendliness of the employees and the cleanliness of the interior. Working for a company that holds such high standards for its employees and for its working environment is an exciting prospect.

One of the most important elements of working as a bank teller is providing top-flight customer service, and this is an area I excel in. I also have a clean track record in terms of following procedures and handling currency – I made zero balancing mistakes during four years as a Wells Fargo teller, and I adhered to all security policies to ensure the safety of my colleagues, myself, & company assets. I’m fluent in Spanish and English so I can communicate with the vast majority of Sacramento’s diverse community, and I’m comfortable using general banking software as well.

[Target Company] has been opening Sacramento branches at a prolific rate this past decade, faster than any of their competitors. I believe that their focus on providing the best customer service in the business can be attributed to part of this success, and I’d love to contribute further to this positive public image. I’d be happy to come in for an interview if possible, contact me anytime via email at [EMAIL], or by phone at [PHONE] on Sunday or Monday. Thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you!

Sincerely,

Peter Long

3. Three Industry Writing Tips

Follow these tips and your cover letter will be sharp in no time.

1. Make a list of things you like about your target bank and mention at least one.

You won’t have the opportunity to explore many companies in-person until you’re hired, but banks are conveniently open to all members of the public. Take advantage of this and investigate your potential place of employment. See how the employees treat you and think about the overall atmosphere. If it’s one you enjoy then make sure to mention it — doing so shows that you pay attention to the details and makes you appear more positive about taking on the position.

2. Highlight your dependability.

Not many entry-level employees handle the amounts of money a bank teller does. Making a hiring manager believe you’re dependable is a huge part of landing the job, so it’s good to begin this process early on! Find a concrete example of your dependability and place this in your cover letter.

Academic or volunteer experiences in the past are both great areas to draw from

If you check out our bank teller resume, you can see that our candidate was also the treasurer of the key club. People without job experience can use such examples to emphasize how dependable they are. Academic or volunteer experiences in the past are both great areas to draw from if you haven’t worked much in your life. Don’t worry, we all start somewhere!

3. Customer service is the name of the game.

Bank tellers are constantly working with co-workers and customers, so social skills are a must. If you dislike interacting with others, it might be a good idea consider looking into different fields.

Assuming you do like interacting with people, it’s great to emphasize this at some point in your cover letter. The best way to prove this is during the interview stage, but it helps to mention here too!

For a lot of customers, banking can be difficult. As a teller, your job is not just to provide what the customer is asking for, but to also provide services the customer may not be aware of. Talk about your ability to read between the lines on your resume and you’ll be sure to land an interview.

If you have any examples of customer service prowess, then be sure to include your best one. A workplace award is a nifty piece of concrete evidence, but you can also use less concrete examples from school. Think of a time where you worked well with others to achieve something, or helped someone understand a topic that they were confused about. Find the most relevant example that illustrates your ability to be a bank teller, and find a nice place to include it.

It may be a cliche saying yet it still rings true– the proof is in the pudding.

At this point, if you’re still not certain about putting your cover letter together, our comprehensive cover letter writing guide is a great resource for more in-depth guidance. Or, you can let our cover letter builder get it looking fresh in minutes.

Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. (Manager’s Name)

I’m writing you today regarding the open position for head cashier. As this is a role I am currently seeking, I was pleasantly surprised at my luck, and wish to take this opportunity to apply, as I feel I’d be a perfect fit for the job.

I have 8 years of experience as a cashier in the retail industry, having worked the last 3 years for Best Buy. As a Cashier, my main function was operating the POS cash register, handling 92 transactions on average daily, maintain thorough knowledge of store merchandising and providing exceptional customer service. Working at Best Buy has helped me learn the ins and outs of successful cashier operation, how to file important financial information, handle daily accounts and maintain inventory. I have successfully received top ratings for accuracy and efficiency throughout my tenure.

Previously, I also worked at Barnes & Nobles as a Cashier, where I increased customer satisfaction by 9% in just 6 months by implementing new corporate strategies. I take pride in working with integrity, and have a passion for delivering and promoting outstanding results as an individual, and as part of a team. I would be thankful for a chance to interview with you, and hope that you afford me the opportunity.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

I’m excited to be writing to you regarding the cashier vacancy advertised on (Website’s Name). I am a committed and motivated applicant, and bring your company my knowledge of and experience with cash handling, accuracy and thoroughness, and the ability to negotiate and resolve disputes.

I have previously worked at McDonald’s as a cashier.  During that time, I developed and sharpened my skills in all aspects associated with handling cash, checks, vouchers, and credit cards. I consistently exceeded all goals set for me, and was valued for my hard work, reliability, tenacity and ability to come up with solutions to complex problems. This was particularly well illustrated when I was tasked with supervising 4 new employees providing them with job training.

As noted on my resume, I also worked at Cornell College as a Resident Assistant, where my duties included enforcing rules and regulations to ensure safety of over 150 students. This job also required me to provide emergency first aid and summon medical assistance whenever necessary.

My core strengths include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Adept in receiving payments from customers and issuing change due, receipts, or refunds to customers
  • Always being friendly, keen, and helpful
  • High attention to details
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Excellent interpersonal skills

Enclosed with this application is my resume, which lists my professional experience, skills, and education in detail. I would be grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate my capabilities further during an interview. Please feel free to contact me to arrange a meeting at your earliest convenience.
