Tier-one representatives of any establishment hold a key role to make a good reputation and smooth functioning of the company. An important first and/or last contact position is that of a cashier who greets customers as they arrive and provides them with assistance in shopping by directing them to the right person. But of course, this is not the actual essence of their work. The main task of a cashier is to take payment in exchange of items sold. They perform many duties related to a cash register – processing checks and credit card payments, managing product exchanges and returns, balancing tills and performing limited bookkeeping activities is just a few of these duties.
Cashiers usually work in retail environments although many work in others such as spas. They are instrumental in managing an organization’s incoming payments which is why they are hired following much scrutiny – the need to hire ethical and honest people is essential in this position due to the involvement of money.
