Cookie, a Cashier and Retail Worker a toy store, describes how she likes interacting with kids and families and helping them find what they need. She advises: take all of your high school classes very seriously; studying now will help you in college.
Cashiers handle payments from customers purchasing goods and services. In some establishments, cashiers may have to check customers' age when selling age-restricted products, such as alcohol and tobacco. Some cashiers may have duties not directly related to sales and customer service, such as mopping floors, taking out the trash, and doing other custodial tasks. Others may stock shelves or mark prices on items.
Short-term on-the-job training
Cashiers go through a brief training period when they are hired. In small firms, an experienced worker typically trains beginners. In larger businesses, trainees spend time in training classes before being placed at cash registers. During training, new cashiers are taught store policies and procedures and how to operate equipment such as cash registers.
