Employment of tellers is projected to experience little or no change, growing 1 percent from 2010 to 2020.
Past job growth for tellers was driven by a rapid expansion of bank branches, where most tellers work. However, the growth of bank branches is expected to slow because of both changes to the industry and the fact that certain areas now have an abundance of banks.
Additionally, online and mobile banking allows customers to handle many of the same transactions as tellers do. As more people use online banking, fewer bank customers will visit the teller window. This will result in decreased demand for tellers.
Job prospects for tellers should be excellent because many workers leave this occupation.
