What is the difference between Bank Clerk and Bank Worker?

When do you use Bank Clerk? And when do you use Bank Worker?

Is there a big difference?

A 'clerk' is specifically someone who does clerical work - keeping records, typing, attending to correspondence, or filing.

A manager could be called a "bank worker" and so could a cleaner.

I've never heard of anyone being called a bank worker, though, or a bank clerk.

There would be "a cleaner", "a bank teller", "a clerk", "a bank manager", "a branch manager of a bank", "a security guard", "a marketing executive", "a personal secretary" and so on - any of them might work in a bank.

Here I have to disagree with DragOnspeaker.

My elder brothers first job was as a bank clerk for the then Midland Bank it is used in British English quite commonly, the term for a bank teller is the American title for the same job.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

I, for one, shall not complain about DragO's having acquired some American habits.

What about a 'bank employee'?

I am a layman.

Oh OK - In my bank, the 'please wait here' signs use 'teller' for the normal "quick deposit or withdrawal" counters and 'assistant' for the "loan and mortgage" people who have their own desk or interview office.
I guess that's to differentiate between the different types of 'clerk'.

Anybody who works for any organization is an employee of that organization.
