Cashier Interview Questions

A cashier has the responsibility of maintaining the flow of cash from customers when they buy a product or come to return it. They are either the first or the last person your customers talk to when they first make a contact with your store. You want to hire someone good with money and people with no specific requirement of prior experience. The ideal candidate will seem like the most reliant and people-friendly person with good communication and analytical skills. Love for numbers would be a bonus.
