الجواب حامداومصليا

ATM machines fees charges are based on the services and not interest. So working in this capacity is permissible. With regards to working as a manager at a conventional bank will not be allowed, as the main source of income of these conventional banks is Riba thus, making your income Haram. (Ahsanul Fatawa V.7 Pg.22)

  أما تزويد البنك عميله بكشف الحساب وصرفه الشيكات له وتخويله حق الاستفادة من خدمات الصراف الآلي 

 مثلا فإن هذه ليست نقودا مدفوعة زيادة عن الدين وإنما هي خدمات
