"Cashiering Jobs Can Be Rewarding"

I was proud to be a cashier and I took my work serious.

"Cashiering Jobs Can Be Rewarding"

I worked five years for the Wal Mart Super center chain and I found it to be very rewarding and exciting. I guess cashiering isn't a job for just anybody, because I think you have to be a very special person; who love people. I am without a doubt a people person and always have been. I started working for Wal Mart in 1997 as a cashier, it was exciting, but even more so after I learned all my cashiering skills. You're taught how to greet your customers and make them feel comfortable with you; and most time the customers like you and your service so much, they will always come back too your register, no matter how many people you have in your check out line. I was what you called a four star cashier, I was a fast checker, even while carrying on conversation with my customers. I believe in get the customer in and out, less waiting and that's why my check out line was always long, but I didn't mind because I loved my job and my customers.

Being a cashier had it's incentives too, just like any other job; by checking and scanning fast you come become a Four star cashier which meant, you have earned another color cashier vest and a gold pin, plus a raise for a job done well. It was an honor to be a Four Star cashier for Wal Mart,because I enjoy cashiering plus you got perks in the process. In doing cashiering, you meet many wonderful people, in doing your job, but here are a few pain in the butts out their too, but the good customers always out weighed the bad ones and that is what made cashiering worth while. You not only met nice customer, but you got a chance to meet Wal Mart associates as well. If you're into people and you don't mind standing for long time, our and doing continous work, then cashiering might be a good job for you. I worked as a cashier for Wal Mart for four years and there were times, when a customer got on my last nerve, but they didn't know it because I acted like it was only a meatball.

I learned that if you let people get to you, you will find yourself upset and bother most of the time and I didn't want to be in a position where, I was anyone's puppet on a string; being yanked up and down. Being a Four Star cashhier for me was indeed an honor that I took serious, until the day I became a Customer Service Manager. So, if you love people and don't mind being with them every day, helping them out with their groceries and wares; telling them where to find things and giving them competitive prices, then cashiering is the job for you. It was a very rewarding job for me, and it also taught me how to handle disagreeable customers and how to be nice to the ones that appreciates you. Just like with any Job, cashiering is what ever you make out of it, it all about your attitude with the work that you do.

      worked for corporate America a long time. It's not the same place our parents worked. No more 30 years with the same company, a pension and a gold watch upon retirement. Corporate loyalty is a thing of the past. It's every employee for themselves. If you don't keep your eyes open and get too comfortable at the same place, you could find yourself out of work and on the street and have absolutely no idea how it happened. Pay attention to these warning signs. If you notice more than 3 within a year, it's time to get ou
