Reading, MA – Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB) would like to announce the hiring of two new Tellers: John-Michael Garofano and Matthew Arsenault. Both individuals were members of the bank’s Student Banking Program at Northeast Metro Tech (NEMT) in Wakefield.
John-Michael Garofano is currently attending NEMT. Before coming on as a Teller, John-Michael spent time as a School Bank Employee, where he performed basic banking functions, such as deposits, withdrawals, transfers, account openings, and closing out drawers. He graduates in 2019 and will look to pursue a career in business technology. Matthew Arsenault is also a student at NEMT, where he worked at RCB’s school branch. Matthew is similarly interested in a business technology career and is presently a member of the school’s Video Club.
“We love having a feeder program that helps great candidates, like these two young men, hone their banking skills and develop into future employees,” stated Tess Cunha, Vice President and Branch Administrator at RCB. “It’s one of the primary reasons why our presence in the local school system is indispensable to the success of the bank. We can fill many part-time and seasonal positions with ready-made bankers who are learned and able to contribute immediately.”
