Cashiers generally take money from customers in exchange of goods sold. They use scanning equipment to check for prices and accept cash and credit cards. They are also required to greet customers when appropriate and assist them in finding the concerned person for purchase information.
Employers are always on the lookout for experienced cashiers as these professionals are work ready. Hiring entry level cashiers can mean huge training expenses and more chances of errors. Cashiers perform a lot of duties mostly at the till but are also required to perform some in-store handling.

Dear Mr. Joseph:
My cashiering and customer service experience is right on target for the advertised position at Banbury’s that you have advertised in the Hawaii Times. With many years of successful experience in customer service and cash handling arena, I believe that I have the capacity to exceed your expectations.
My previous position as a retail cashier was very similar to your job description. Immaculate work ethics and exceptional communication skills speak for my traits; I believe that these two qualities make the base for almost any work duty that an individual is expected to perform in any job. My skills as a cashier have been polished over the last decade as I have worked extensively with both cash and credit card transactions. Through my experiences, I developed expertise in different facets of handling and balancing cash machines, registers and scanning equipment – able to manage all these tasks quite effectively. Moreover, I am aware of the fact that work does not only involve working at the cash machine and this is the reason I have trained myself in customer assistance at the floor level as well.
What appears on my resume is a mere trailer of the work duties that I can perform and the skills that I possess. I am eager to demonstrate my skills in person. You can reach me at (000) 333-9999 or via email at [Email]. I appreciate the time which you have taken to review my information in considering me as possible candidate for the position of Cashier at Banbury’s.
