Cashier Training

The job of cashier is one that is often sought out because it requires a minimal amount of training. Aside from basic courtesy and math, most companies can show you what you need to know about their registers in as little as an hour and a half. The more challenging aspects of being a cashier are often dealing with the customer, not with the money, as the cash register does most of the math and work for you. So, even though your math skills should be sharp, the amount of time you'll spend dealing with the customer face-to-face means that your interpersonal skills should be even sharper.

      Determine your current skill level. Cashiers must be skilled in customer service and basic math. Aside from these, cashiers must also be punctual to ensure that their register is being manned, responsible to ensure that all security tags are removed, merchandise has not been tampered with and the tender is legal tender, ethically responsible with money and able to stand for long periods of time and lift heavy packages, often up to 25 pounds. Training lessons on how to work a particular register are almost always provided by the company that hires you. Some companies like Target and Wal-Mart have developed their own training manuals on operating a cash register and becoming a good cashier. Others offer informal lessons on how to work their specific registers.
