Although now owned by Wells Fargo, Wachovia has its roots going all the way back to 1879 when William Lemly opened the Wachovia National Bank. In 1911 the bank merged with Trust Company and Wachovia Loan.
Thanks to the account of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company Wachovia grew to be one of the largest banks in the southeast. In 1986 Wachovia purchased First Atlanta, which was the oldest national bank in Atlanta this gave Wachovia a dual headquarters, on in their original Winston-Salem, North Carolina and one in Atlanta Georgia.
The company continued to grow and acquire other banks and financial institutions. During the economic crisis of 2008 Wells Fargo acquired Wachovia after a government-forced sale. This was to avoid the failure of one of the largest bank-holding companies in the United States, prior to the sale Wachovia was the fourth largest bank holding company in the U.S. based on assets.
Like its parent company, Wells Fargo, Wachovia has many locations for their customers to go. Since that is the case they are in need of personal bankers to help guide their customers on the path of financial independence. As a personal banker you will work with your clients to help them meet their financial goals. These jobs are in addition to Wachovia bank teller jobs.
They also need good phone bankers to man the phones. This is the information age and not everyone has time to come in and sit down and talk to a banker. Wachovia makes it simple by allowing their customers to contact a phone banker to help answer any questions they may have. They can also, like a personal banker, help customers define their financial goals.
Tellers are always necessary in any bank. As a teller you will be the person that sees the customer most frequently. You can help them with concerns about their account and process transactions such as deposits or withdraws.
