    Re: What is the difference between clerical jobs and Probationary officer jobs?

    For both the posts, the selected candidates have to undergo training for a fixed period of time. The clerical related jobs in a bank are done by the candidates who join as a clerk. The probationary officer’s job is similar to that of a manager trainee. The main qualities required for a probationary officer are leadership qualities, decision-making skills, and intelligence to handle various situations. To apply for the PO post, the aspirants should have completed graduation in any discipline with at least 60% marks. The age limit for PO exam is 21-28 years. Whereas the age limit for clerical exam is 18-26 years. The minimum qualification required to apply for the clerical post is 12th pass with at least 60% marks.

    Role of Probationary Officers in Banks

    Probationary officers will have to take up assignments given by
    their managers. Along with training, they will also be deployed across various
    departments of the bank to gain exposure in operations & working of bank. So, short, the PO must be willing to take up any work during the probation period order to understand the process effectively & to scale greater heights and reach
    higher positions.
    Salary: The payscale for probationary officers ranges between Rs.10,000 -
    18,240. Depending on the post & grade after successful completion of
    Probation


    Role of Clerk post in Banks

    Role of clerks has become very crucial as most of the time they are sitting on front counters and are carrying the image of the bank with their work style. Gone are the days when we were having mostly “Sarkari Babu” type people sitting on the front counters and working as per their will. As far as work is concerned, clerks can be assigned any banking related work, most of the time related to front counters such as a “Single Window Operator”, as a “Teller” on receipt or payment of cash counters or on counters such as payment of cheques, FDR & draft issue etc.

    Hello Friend

    There are different roles in a Banking sector and depending on your designation you have to perform the required work and commonly in a Bank there are different designations that we came across like from

    1. Manager
    2. PO's / Asst Manager
    3. Clerks

    - Manager is the Ultimate person that looks after all the Bank transactions and regularly informing the higher authority, also they see the proper flow of Bank work and awarding different schemes to their account holders.

    For a particular Bank having different branches there are different Branch Managers and there are also different cadres in Managers.

    - PO's / Asst Manager is the person that comes next to the Manager and he looks after all the work that going by the Clerks and also deals with different problem solving that comes from different account holders in a particular branch.

    PO's also looks after the Branch when the Manager is out o station and also carry's the work that leads to different account sections and all.

    - Clerk's are the persons that commonly carry the day to day work in bank in different tables like Cash Counter persons, Auditing persons, Account verifying persons, etc. so the clerk is the one who has to work directly with the account holder in different types of transactions.

    So dude these are the main difference between different Bank designations and for any further assistance leave your message here.

    REGARDS.

    Re: What is the difference between clerical jobs and Probationary officer jobs?

    clerks are responsible for data entry works in the banks whereas the PO's responsibility is to check in and monitor that data which is given by the clerks.

    The difference is there between clerks and PO eligibility.
    Clerks require at least 10th class where as degree is required for PO's

    There are many banks which provide these jobs regularly in India. The following are the few.
    1.Indian bank
    2.Indian overseas bank
    3.Oriental bank of commerce
    4.Punjab national bank
    5.Punjab & sindh bank
    6.Syndicate bank
    7.Union bank of india
    8.United bank of india
    9.UCO bank
    10.Vijaya bank
    11.Allahabad bank
    12.Andhra bank
    13.Bank of baroda
    14.Bank of india
    15.Bank of maharastra
    16.Canara bank
    17.Central bank of india
    18.Corporation bank
    19.Dena bank

    Clerk posts exam pattern is :
    English Language (Grammar, Vocabulary, Comprehension etc.)
    General Awareness, Marketing & Computers
    Data Analysis & Interpretation
    Reasoning (Verbal & Non-Verbal)

    PO exam pattern include all the above along with the descriptive paper.

    Generally the syllabus also the same for both posts but, PO's require in depth knowledge of those topics

    Salary also differ from these both the jobs.
    PO can take 18,000 to 27,000 per month
    where as clerks get 7,000 to 12,000 per month.


    All the best
