What does a good cashier need?
In terms of education there are no specific requirements but for a full time position an employer might prefer an applicant with a high school diploma. As cashier jobs are mostly an entry level position, employers probably won’t be looking for much past experience if any. The job requires you to handle money, which means it would be advantageous if you are good with numbers. Good listening skills combined with patience would enable you deal well with difficult customers. Also a fluent speaker will have an added advantage and being friendly would help you in greeting the customers. We would recommend you to start working on that smile as it can go a long way when dealing with customers. As the saying goes, most smiles are started by another smile.
