Cashier Job Overview and Description

Employment of cashiers is limited due to advances in technology, such as self-service and increasing online sales. Because of this employment of cashiers is projected to show little or no change in the next few years.


What are Cashier jobs?

Cashier jobs include many different occupations. Their responsibilities typically include greeting customers, scanning customer purchases, bag customer purchases, process returns or exchanges of merchandise, answer customer questions and provide information about store policy, count money in their register at the beginning and end of their shifts, and help customers sign up for rewards and credit cards.

In some establishments, cashiers may be required to check customer’s ID when selling alcohol or tobacco products.

Cashiers may also have additional responsibilities, including mopping floors, taking out the trash, stocking shelves and marking pricing on items.


Cashier Job Overview?

Cashiers spend most of their time standing behind counters or in check out stands. Work can often be repetitive, and they may experience stress when dealing with dissatisfied customers.

Work hours will vary by employer. Cashiers often work weekend and holidays, and some cashiers may work late hours in 24-hour establishments. Part-time hours are common.


What type of education do you need to be a Cashier?

Most cashier jobs do not require any specific education, though some employers may prefer applicants with a high school diploma or equivalent.

Cashiers receive on-the-job training where they learn how to operate equipment such as scanners and registers.


What is a typical Cashier salary?

The median hourly wage for cashiers is around $10.78. Many cashiers without prior experience tend to earn the states set minimum wage.


What are Cashier job requirements?

Cashiers require basic mathematic skills as they are required to properly count change and handle money.

Customer service skills are also necessary as they interact with customers constantly. Physical stamina is also very helpful since cashiers tend to spend most of their time on their feet.


Where can you find a Cashier job listing?

You can search for a cashier job listing through websites like CareerBuilder, Monster, Indeed, SimplyHired, and JobsInEachState.com. You can also check your local papers or do a general web search for your area for cashier jobs. Many applicants can get cashier jobs by physically visiting the location that they wish to work at and fill out an application.
