Are cashiers suppose to greet the customer everytime they checkout? Did you vary up the greeting or did you just say the same greeting line everytime. Also how easy is it to be a cahsier? I'm gonna work as a cashier in a fabric/craft store.

Really, really easy. Customers just want to get out of the store, they want to say as much to you as you want to say to them. "Hey how are ya." "That'll be (insert price here." "Thanks, have a nice day/afternoon/evening."

That's it. Time goes by really fast if there's a good amount of people too. Just make sure to always check your credit cards with at least a signature comparison and check any bill larger than a 10. If you take a fake bill or anything like that, it'll come back on you. Looks really bad.

yeah it seems pretty easy, but its gonna be a bit monotonous with greeting customers like 300 times a day.

Most definitely is, but sometimes it actually leads to meeting some pretty decent people. Through my old job I actually met the person who got me into Opeth, lol.

I'm a cashier, I say the exact same thing to every customer I check out.

As someone who has worked as a cashier at various places for almost 3 years, i can honestly say.... IT ****ING BLOWS. It alright at first, but in time, you will come to hate it with a fiery passion rivaled only by that of hades himself. Have a good first day at work!!!!!!!

At Taco Bell, it goes like this:

Me: Hi how are you today?
Customer: Good and you?
Me: I'm doing well, what can I get for you?
Customer: Orders
Me: Would you like a drink with that?
Customer: Response
Me: Alright, (repeat order), is that it?
Customer: Yes
Me: That's (cost)
Customer pays.
Me: Have a great day!

lol...

comment on the customers shopping


'bucket of chicken huh? you on a diet now?'


i dont do face to face shopping and keep other interactions as short and sparse as possible because you always get someone like this

i'm a stocker, i get to take my lunch anytime i want; but the cashiers gotta go at a certain time hahahahahaha stockers win

i work as one usually. i just say "hi" or "hello" to everyone. it helps to smile too. then just say "thank you" and "good bye" when you are done with them.

thats all i do anyway.

and its a really easy job. it sucks if it gets really busy and you have a long line though.

I'm a garnisher at Harvey's, (bagging peoples food, asking them what they want on their burgers, garnishing the burger then handing it out.) and I probably interact with customers more than the cashier does. Basically just be polite and friendly, say hello when they come up to you, maybe ask how their day's going, then say goodbye, thankyou, or have a goodnight when they leave.

just be polite.

i was a secondary cashier at a petrol station for a while (rubbish job, i had to restock and so on as well).

i usually just said hello or hi and smiled and asked which petrol pump they were paying for if i wasn't watching out the window. make conversation if they're chatty. it's really not hard to be blandly cheerful and polite.

I was a cashier at Best Buy, and now a cashier at the Dollar Store.

Yeah, we're supposed to ask, "find everything okay?" But when people say "no" I never knew what to say, so instead I just go, "Hi, how are you?" It's nice, and it works.

Cashier's pretty easy job though. You just have to be quick sometimes.

Seriously, it's an easy job. I work at Woolworths, and when you get the occasional arse, the trick is to be as happy and polite as possible. They get even more pissed

Dont go over board and say " HELLO! and welcolm to [enter name of store here]! Did you find everything all right!?!" with a fat grin on your face.

Just a little small talk. Hello... some weather..... whens the last time someone hit that? simple friendly stuff like that.

Don't do it man, those consumers will gnaw away at your soul. You may not mind your first three months or so, you may even like the job. Here's what does it though, the first day you have around 5 customers ever so "wittingly" remark that the item "must be free" when you can't get it to scan, and the moldy old house wife who finds out she secretly hates herself and what she's done with her life, comes through your line and bitches you out because her senile ass can't read a sale sign.

The downward slope is a gradual one though. You may start telling yourself that you only hate the "dickheads" or the "as$holes". Then you start passively hating all customers without even knowing it, you hate the sight of them walking up to your line. You find yourself disgusted by them, and you have to hold back throwing blunt objects at them.

You will then start hating yourself for still working the dead end job that is below you, for eight years, and why the fvck haven't you been promoted yet? You are ten times the worker Martha is, yet just because you don't give your mid forties manager a false impression that you'll fvck him, you don't go anywhere. But you keep jumping through hoops for those above you, just for the hope of any sort of recognition, a sort of pat on the head. You go home, your apartment is a mess, you take temporary solice in the fact that your baseball team won 19-6, but it quickly fades.

Your mind is filled with the irony that you have the ability to calm down an irate customer, even to the point of them calling you the best worker there, yet you cannot even talk to the opposite sex. Alone, drunk, you again find yourself surfing google for porn, yet by now your desensitized to the normal ****. Oh no, Playboy material just won't cut the cake, you can't even get semi-hard unless it is something that kills whatever is left of your morality.

You then start to question the very fabric of our social society. Your faith in humanity has long since withered away, maybe it was seeing some drunk old man push away an old lady for some ****ty plastic toy for his son for Christmas, perhaps someone faking an illness to scam the company out of $500, those are all contributers. This sentance killed any shred of optimism I had left for we as a species, "I use these self check-out lanes all the time, and I just hate them" this was uttered to me two and a half years ago, it has caused me great trauma, and eventually led to a complete mental break down. We have 36 checkout lanes and only five of those are the self checkout lanes, there is choice. I realized that, that was not an isolated incident, I had been hearing that line my entire tenture there in one way or another, I just hadn't realized it. That is a re-occuring theme of civilization.

You run into an ex-lover named Krystal you dated in college at your check out lane, humility fills you, you had just started working there when the two of you were dating. She told you not to drop out, but you just had to "take a semester off, to figure out what (you) want out of life" well six and a half years later you're bagging her tampons, and not in some sick sexual fashion, that may just be twisted enough to get you off. You strike a conversation, and she smiles and chuckles at your jokes, you have to make your move. You offer to help her to her car with her order, concealing the pair of scissors they leave at the checkout lane to cut the tags off of various products, you know the plastic ones you hadn't seen since 1st grade. As soon as you load the last bag of cosmetics and various fragrents, she turns to her car and says with a concealed smile "it was nice seeing you, we should hang out sometime". You know now it is now or never, you have to have her in your life, you take the scissors and discreatly cut a small lock of her hair off.

You catch a drift of it's intoxicating aroma, as a gentle gust of air sweeps through, your knee's quiver, your heart pounds. You run gleefully to your car like like Rosie O'Donnel to fatty foods. Searching in your glove compartment you find a rag doll that you taped a picture of Krystal on, the clothes made from various snippets of the clothes she left at your apartment, and now the lock of hair. You leave work without telling anyone, and skip town.

You drive for five days straight, ocassionally stopping at a truck stop for a bite to eat, you enter hand in hand with this psuedo lover. You see the looks from the patrons, but you don't care, "they just don't understand our love" you tell the doll. Somewhere in New Mexico you are kissing the forehead of that abomination you created, and you look up too see you are drving into the medium, you overcompinsate, and drive off a 900 foot cliff killing yourself in a fiery mess.

I know this because it happened to me.

Or maybe you'll like it, some people do.
