Bank clerk

The bank clerk is the employee of a bank who is in charge of dealing with the clients' money. He receives and pays them, as he is making thousands of transactions every day. He is that smiling face that you can see standing behind a desk, which you are paying your bills, your debts and the one who is giving you any type of information regarding the bank's services. Each bank clerk is responsible for one area of the bank, making sure that the activity runs smoothly inside it. Thus, new account clerks are responsible for opening new accounts for clients who need them, both companies and individuals. The interest clerks are busy with monitoring interests, which correspond to different savings accounts or the different loan offers and clarify any doubt or question that the client may be having regarding these interests, which usually are a neuralgic point. Exchange clerks have to operate with currency, and they usually help clients turn one currency into another, having a predetermined exchange rate as a landmark. Bookkeeping clerks take care of the records, which contain important data about the bank's clients, and about the operations, they have made with their accounts. Then, some clerks take care of the machinery, which is vital to some bank operations. We see the diversity of clerks that we can find in a bank, and how every one of them has their specific working area.
