To work as a cashier, you typically need to:
- complete short-term, on-the-job training.
Education after high school
No formal education is required for this job. However, many employers prefer that you have a high school diploma or its equivalent.
Most cashiers learn their skills on the job. Training can last up to one month. In small businesses, an experienced worker usually trains you. First, you learn about the store's equipment and policies. Then you work a register while a coworker supervises your work. In larger businesses, you begin by spending several days in classes. You learn about the company's policies, equipment operation, and security.
