What do you do?
Where do you work and what is your title?
I am a personal banker for Wells Fargo Bank, which is located in the Westside Safeway.
What do you do there and/or what are you responsible for?
Iím a loan officer and help with car loans, home equity lines of credit and personal loans. I also open new accounts for customers.
How long have you been doing this kind of work (total)? How long on the Westside?
Iíve been in the banking industry for a little over two years. I have worked on the Westside for about nine months.
What do you like best about it (other than quitting time)?
I love getting to meet all different kinds of people and building lasting business relationships.
If you could change one thing (other than pay), what would it be?
I would love it if we could add another office in our small bank in order to accomodate more customers.
What part of your work did your training/education never prepare you for?
I went to college to be a history teacher. But it was December when I graduated two years ago, and I didnít want to start a new teacher position in the middle of a school year. So, I found a job as a bank teller in Montrose with Wells Fargo Bank and enjoyed it so much that I stayed with it.
What makes working on the Westside special?
The people. I love the small community feel of the Westside. It reminds me of Delta, Colorado, where Iím from. I first moved here to work at the downtown location but applied for a transfer to this bank because it was on the Westside!
