continuing to be a Wamulian

As most of you know, I work at Washington Mutual as a teller and I was always planning on tranferring branches once I moved out to school. However as of late, the company put a freeze of sorts on hiring, making it harder for branches to post new positions and making it so my transferring was not so much of a surety. I definitely need this job because it's perfect for what I need.

I need this job because:
  • The hours are flexible. I don't work any earlier than 9 am or any past 6 pm, so I'll still have my evenings.
  • I get Sundays, Saturday afternoons, and holidays off and get paid for it.
  • Tellering pays better than most other jobs I could work.
  • It's relatively easy work that's easy to learn; I don't need too much training.
  • I'm already a Wamulian (an employee of Washington Mutual) so I could just dive right in!
  • I already have the shirts.

Well, a posting came up for the Provo branch last week, but it was for a full-time position (blast). I e-mailed my old manager (the one who was working on this with me before he transferred) asking if I should apply anyway, (even though I'm interested in working part-time) and he said to go ahead. I applied today and then I e-mailed the Provo manager just letting him know I applied and expressing my hope we can work something out. He e-mailed me right back and said he'd be happy to discuss the position with me, so the transferring now looks like much more of a viable option. I'm so excited! I need a job badly and being a teller is so perfect. The only downside is that I have to deal with not-so-nice customers every once in a while, but it's still not bad!

I should be seeing more developments as the summer progresses!

I sincerely hope that Cash-in-the-Pants lady does not have any relatives in Provo, practacing those same monetary transportation methods. I hope that the transfer works out well, Telling sounds a lot less crappy than some of the other jobs out there, like call centers *shudders*

is "tellering" really a word? I'm glad it looks like its going to work out for you. Job searches can be the worst, Especially in Provo/Orem as I found when I moved here. Good luck,and can't wait until you're here!

I hope the transfer works out. What a leg up you would have if you already had a job when you got here! Competition is fierce among all those students...

Hip hip hooray for a job for Charlotte! And yes, I think that "tellering" really is a word in the banking world.

I second what Claire said about hoping Cash in the Pants doesn't have connections to Utah....
