Tellers Make Worst Jobs List
Research from personal finance website Wallethub.com found that 40% of this year's worst entry level jobs for college graduates were in the financial services industry.
Wallethub's list of 10 worst entry level positions included teller and consumer loan processing clerks in the consumer financial services industry, along with policy processing clerks and claims processing clerks in the insurance industry.
In addition, tellers and policy processing clerks were listed among entry level positions with the worst pay ($23,698 and $26,572, respectively) and the worst prospects for income growth.
The only list that did not include the financial industry was one naming the most dangerous entry level jobs. Also included among the worst entry level positions were electronics assembly, tool and die makers and boilermakers.
WalletHub assembled a list of 109 different types of entry-level jobs. It then identified 11 key metrics that measured various aspects of immediate opportunities, prospects for growth, and potential hazards associated with each type of job.
The result was a hierarchy for the entry-level job market that illustrates the types of jobs that should be most attractive to new labor market entrants – particularly recent college graduates – in both the near and short term, the firm explained.
