Cashier Job Description:
A cashier is someone who handles cash. There are several organizations that deal with cash transactions on a daily basis.
The best examples are banks, general stores, hospitals and many more.
A cashier receives cash from the customers/clients and debits it to the organization's account. On the other hand, he pays cash to customers and credits it to the organization's account. A cashier is a part of the accounts department and is responsible of handling only those tasks that involve cash transactions. Most
cashiers work on a daily basis where they have to submit daily accounts and hand over the final sum of cash to the superiors. A
cashier's position is an entry level position. Any candidate with an aptitude for accounts can be hired as a cashier and trained to
handle the cash. The most important job of the cashier is to hand out the
money to the account holders. The account holder will fill the withdrawal slip or check and hand it to the cashier; the cashier
will then verify the account number, the amount of cash, and the signature and then clear the transaction. The cashier will count
the money and hand it over to the account holder and make changes in the balance.
Basically,the cashier has to handle money transactions wherever they work.
The cashier is an important position and requires great mathematical skills. Even though there are computers and
calculators to manage all the daily figures, one should have sound math skills despite the digital help. The cashier should also have
strong ethical values. Since he handles lots of money, he must learn to stay away from the temptation of using it for his own benefit.
