Cashier Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Cashier in Plymouth:
"Don't smoke."
Don't work for Brennan's.

Cashier in Phenix City:
"I like what I do I like the customers."

"How stressful it is to work with the public."
Do your job to the best of your ability.

Cashier in Lubbock:
"FAST EFFICIENT FRIENDLY SERVICE."
I never knew how much work was involved working at a convienence store. I'll tell you this I started there 8 of 2015 have never called in the only time I've missed is over Christmas got snowed in. If your going to be calling in making excuses of why not to work, then don't APPLY!! PLUS IF YOUR LAZY??? FORGET IT!!!

Cashier in Austin:
"No your customer."
In customer service at a grocery store learn your customers. The more you learn about the more opportunities they'll offer you. Customers like that a cashier takes some interest in their day to day lives. When you know the items they purchase most often, it gives you the ability to remind them of items they might have forgotten. The more you no about them the more they feel appreciated. They won't forget you and will always ask for you. Learn their names, learn their career, and learn what they value. Often they will pay it forward by telling your boss, supervisor, lead, or whoever. That they value you and would like to see you achieve more success.

Cashier in Seattle:
"Seek early promotion."
Seek early promotion. Staying in that position for more that 6 months is not recommended.

Cashier in Dunnellon:
"Like people."
You better like working with the public, get use to being screamed at, called names and also hit on, degraded and yes then you have the nice ones.That also helps you to stay. Hard work, heavy lifting, bending, standing. Think about what you could do with your life beside being a cashier. Oh yea you might get a bonus , but don't count on it, because we don't always get one. Most are only hiring part time so no health, or other coverage. Some might offer 10% discount, but not on food or clearance depending on where you work. Don't always count on a manager saying thank you your doing a great job. Hope some places do, most done.Stress well all I can say is look out..
