A: Respected Brother/Sister in Islam

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh
Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa
Your query below refers;

It is not permissible to work at a conventional bank as employment at such an institution generally includes involvement in interest based transactions that are totally prohibited. Working at an Islamic Bank is permissible provided that the Islamic Bank conducts its transactions according to the Sharia principles of Islamic Banking

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
