How to become an online banker: The easiest way to get into the job
As an online bank, Amarillo National Bank is just one of the many banks that offer online banking services, but they also have the option to accept money in cash or checks, a service that makes it a more attractive option for those with limited access to financial services.
The bank’s CEO, Robert Mancini, is one of a number of banking executives that has said the online banking option has been a success for Amarillos customers.
“I think the most important thing that we’ve done for the bank is to develop a culture where people can be their own boss,” Mancinis said at a press conference earlier this year.
“I think there’s a lot of people who want to be bank managers and feel comfortable that they can be at a bank that they’re proud of and that they are making money.”
Mancinis also said that the bank has been able to “build relationships with other banks” that may have not been able or willing to provide the services they offered online.
“The challenge is we are a small, regional bank, so we’re not big enough to take on the big national banks and the big international banks,” Mecini said.
“And so we were able to build relationships with some banks that we would have been unable to do with a big national bank.”
Online banking and banking in general have become a popular avenue for many people with limited financial means.
As of last year, nearly 40 million people in the United States were living with a chronic financial problem, according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Many of these people live in neighborhoods with limited banking options.
The American Bankers Association estimates that a staggering 80% of Americans have a financial problem.
Online banking offers a unique option for people living paycheck to paycheck, allowing them to send and receive payments in a way that is convenient, and at a time that is affordable.
Mancini has previously said that he hopes Amarillas online banking business will help improve the lives of people in his community.
“I am very excited about the possibilities,” Mocanini said at the press conference.
“It’s just one more way that we can help people, so that they don’t have to depend on us to help them.”
