A typical day involves taking customers orders, being polite and courteous, and making sure their groceries are packed properly. We have other duties as well though, such as taking back returns and unwanted items, keeping the cash area stocked and clean, memorizing codes for certain products, making sure all of your money is in order. For senior cashiers there's also making sure the new hires are doing their jobs well, answering all their questions, and training them when supervisors aren't around.
What I learned was how to interact with customers and coworkers and how to properly bag items.
I didn't talk with management much, but when I did, I never felt like I was doing good enough. No matter how much I tried, I felt constantly reprimanded and to an extant targeted.
The fellow cashiers there are very social and you'll always have fun talking. This does get out of hand sometimes however.
The hardest part of the job is trying to balance all of your responsibilities when each one seems to be your top priority. Trying to compensate for being frequently understaffed is also quite demanding for everyone involved.
The most enjoyable part of the job was how nice some of the people there are.
