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:
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..

Hang in there. The customer is always right. Everyday can bring a headache but for those few diamond in the rough customers that shine through and make your day worth it, you gotta keep going.
Cashier in Millis:
"More Work For Less Pay."
Find out exactly what all of your job duties are, before you agree on a salary. Realize before going in that working with the public is a very difficult and stressful job, especially when the customer is always right.
