The first BMO employees

The first BMO employees were a cashier, an accountant, a paying teller and a second teller. A discount clerk, a second bookkeeper and a porter were added shortly afterwards. The cashier was given the highest salary as well as the use of the bank house (living quarters owned by the bank, which were occasionally provided to employees). It was with this staff of seven that the bank began business in 1817.
