Walmart cashiers operate cash registers at the front of the stores, greeting customers warmly as they make purchases. They scan all items, process cash, check and credit card transactions and deactivate security devices on bags and items purchased. During busy periods, baggers are usually available to help the cashier pack and load customers' purchases in carts; otherwise, you must do the honors. As a Walmart cashier, you maintain the required amounts of cash in your registers and request price checks when necessary. You also verify customers' ages when they buy restricted merchandise such as beer or wine. Cleaning work areas and returning merchandise to shelves and racks are other responsibilities of the Walmart cashier.
Walmart cashiers work mornings, afternoons or evenings, depending on their typical hours. As a Walmart cashier, you may alternate days and evenings during the week, or work an occasional holiday. Cashier work can be exhausting and stressful, as you're constantly standing and assisting hordes of demanding customers each shift. You may often find yourself yearning for that first break of the day. But all around, it can be fast paced, (especially around the holidays), or slower watching paint dry, its a friendly environment – and customers make it so interesting. People have a lot of amazing stories.
