Cashiers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this career in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

Major employers:

  • Grocery stores
  • Gas stations
  • Drug stores
  • Department stores
  • Pharmacies

Outlook

Job growth is expected to decrease in this career. Although there is an increase in retail sales, automation is reducing the need for cashiers. More stores have self-service checkout stands. In addition, many people are buying goods online and bypassing the need for a cashier.

There will be many job openings for cashiers every year. This is because the career is very large and has a high rate of turnover.
