A typical day for me consists of signing into my till, checking a communication binder. Dealing with customers through phone or person. If by phone, I am parking calls, transferring calls, speaking over a PA system answering questions & giving general information. If in person, I am returning, exchanging or selling items through my till. I am ordering – more... money for my till, doing international money transfers, directing to whom-ever, answering questions & giving general information. If I am not at my main till, I am covering a cashier's break on till, putting stock back to the salesfloor, or I am doing misc jobs.
