The primary role of the sales clerk/cashier is facilitating payment for customers at the cash register. The cashier must be trained and familiar with the point-of-sale (POS) hardware and software used by their employer. They must understand all procedures for handling credit cards and checks, and are expected to adhere to the company’s cash-handling policies at all times. The cashier should expect that the cash drawer they work with will be audited regularly during a typical day, and that they will be held accountable for any discovered overages or shortages.
