“Dear Hiring Manager,

I’m delighted to have the opportunity to apply for the Bank Teller position at Foundry Bank. I am extremely detail-oriented and have an intuitive skill in customer engagement. I also pride myself on respecting the deadlines that are set for me as well as achieving any sales goals in a prompt manner. I am excited about utilizing my past experience as a Bank Teller and serving the customers who are a part of Foundry Bank.

During my previous tenure at Crossover Bank, I honed my skills in providing customer service through active engagement for each and every individual I spoke with. I achieved this through product servicing, listening to customer feedback and proactively engaging in marketing activities in order to grow the customer base, which increased by 37% while I worked there.

I am acutely aware of how important it is to maintain a productive and professional level of customer service while conducting customer transactions in order to introduce company products and services. This is an area of my job as a Bank Teller I especially enjoy. I have been able to sell new products at three times the rate as most of the other tellers. My superiors commented quite frequently on my professionalism and not only praised me for it but rewarded me with sales bonuses and recognition within the company.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to present my skills and background for consideration for the Bank Teller position at Foundry Bank, and I look forward to the opportunity to professionally grow within your company for years to come.

Dear [Mr./Ms./Mx.] [Hiring Manager’s Last Name],

I’m thrilled to be applying for the open Head Teller position at Jamestown Federal Credit Union, for which I saw your job posting on LinkedIn. The posting indicated that you’re looking for an experienced bank teller with excellent customer service and math skills, who won’t require training. With over 10 years of experience as a bank teller, I’m pleased to say that I fit the bill perfectly.

You mentioned needing an experienced bank teller who’s efficient but detailed and can work immediately without supervision. With that in mind, here are some of my relevant achievements:

Process 25+ customer transactions per hour with extreme attention to detail

Respond to customer account inquiries totaling 130+ weekly accounts

Balance automated teller machines, teller cash dispensers, and teller cash recyclers, often totaling more than $100,000

Furthermore, as part of my current role at E&G Bank I’ve been entrusted with training two bank tellers, one junior, and one senior. The senior teller will replace me in my current position within the month, which is when I will be moving to Arizona. I would love to have the opportunity to continue providing my services as a bank teller with Jamestown Federal Credit Union and demonstrate my value as an employee.

With my 10+ years of bank teller experience and ability to train new employees, I firmly believe that I’m the candidate you’re looking for. I look forward to discussing this position with you in more detail. I’ll be able to satisfy any questions you have about my prior experience and demonstrate that I’ll be an asset for your bank.

“Dear Human Resources Director:

My name is Ashley Brown and I am applying for a position as a bank teller at ABC National Bank. I worked for 3 years as a bank teller at XYZ Community Bank until it closed the doors earlier this month. I was the head teller and among the employees who worked until the last day. I greatly enjoy working with the public and strive to provide superior customer service. I have experience working with both individual and commercial customers, and I have taken a number of continuing education courses that focus on excellent customer service. I understand that a teller is the face of the bank and I work to ensure that every customer has the best possible experience when visiting the bank.

I have an Associate’s Degree in Finance from XYZ Community College and am contemplating a return to college at night to work toward my Bachelor’s Degree in Business. I realize that a large national bank is busier than a community bank, but I have excellent organizational skills and am confident that I can handle a busy teller window. I have experience setting up new checking and savings accounts, closing existing accounts on customer request, receiving and processing deposits, taking care of withdrawals, handling loan payments, cashing checks for customers, and transferring funds between different accounts according to the customer’s instructions.

I hope that you will review my attached resume which includes a letter of reference from Martin G. Stevens, the former president of XYZ Community Bank. I am available to come to ABC National any time at your convenience for an interview. I am eager to work for ABC and excited about the prospect of going through your highly regarded training program. I can be reached on my cell phone at (555)-555-5555 or by email at [email] Thank you for your consideration.

Also attached is a reference letter from Ms. Betty Hayes, the owner of City Sweet Shoppe.
