The world of business is like no other. It has its own rules and demands. Shaun Clark decided he had better start learning that world if he wanted to fulfill his dream of becoming a business owner after high school. Commerce Bank is helping show him the way.
"I started training in March 2003, and began work as a teller in April. I worked more hours during the summer than I do in the school year and earned $7.51 an hour. This has really been helpful for me, since I want to start my own business. I'm looking into maybe starting a high performance and definition auto business--some place to do exterior and interior customization and audio. In the teller job, I've learned valuable things about customer service and how to handle money. I was lucky to learn about the job from some other students that had graduated and had worked here. I'd like to work my way up to the loan department one day, so I can get a better idea of that, and what I will need to do one day to get my business off the ground."
