Montgomery City County Personnel

Customer Service Clerk (#CI0025)

Pay Grade


Nature of Work

The fundamental reason this classification exists is to process a significant volume of payments in over-the-counter transactions. Work includes the receipt and recording of cash, checks, and other negotiable instruments in payment of taxes, fees, fines, and other liabilities. Individuals in this classification have frequent contact with the public by phone and through counter duties. Considerable tact and persuasion is required in dealing with citizens who may be or become irate or distraught. Major work functions include performing cashier duties, performing data entry functions, assisting customers, performing general clerical duties, researching requests, problems, and complaints and initiating appropriate action, providing administrative support to supervisors, preparing and editing correspondence, reports and other documents, organizing and recording data, maintaining filing systems and processing incoming/outgoing mail. Once the more difficult phases of the work are learned, the employee works independently referring especially difficult or complex cases to the supervisor or lead worker. This classification differs from other clerical classifications by the responsibility for routinely collecting money and frequent contact with the public.

Minimum Qualifications

High school diploma or GED equivalent and one year of face to face public contact experience that includes receiving cash and/or negotiable instruments.

NOTE:  Qualifying education, training and experience that provide the requisite knowledge, skills and abilities to perform the job will be considered.
