    Over-the-counter/front-office

    I am trying to translate something and would like to know if you understand what is meant by "Over-the-counter customer consultant at a bank in Paris" and "Front-office customer consultant at a bank in Paris." Is it correct to say that? Is there a difference between "over-the-counter" and "front-office"?

    Thanks a lot!

    But if you wanted to express that the person was working at the counter, what would you write? "At-the-counter customer consultant? I have no idea.

    Thanks!
