I am a cashier at my local Walmart, in Lawn and Garden, since last September. Here's a list of observations I've made, and some do's and dont's. 1. As a cashier, I am obliged to always remain at my post. I can help out customers once in a while, but if there's a line of customers waiting to check out, then they are my primary responsibility. 2. As a cashier, I understand that I am the "face of Walmart", but I do not have the entire store memorized in my head. I do not know how many size 34B bras are left, nor do I care. I do not know exactly how many bags of mulch we have left, since I can't get away from my register to count them. 3. I can give you the approximate location of the item you're looking for in Lawn and Garden, but beyond that it's strictly guesswork. See 2 above. 4. Please have a functioning debit or credit card. Most people's cards are fine, but the occasional one looks like it has mold growing on the magnetic strip. Those cards cause no end of grief for everyone. Also, please be aware of how much money is in your account. Nothing worse that buying $500 worth of merchandise, and you only have $400 in your account. I have to suspend or abort the transaction, and that bogs everything and everyone down. 5. Please don't bring 2 shopping carts worth of food to me, I'm not really equipped to handle it in an efficient manner. I only have a small counter space, and three bag slots on my bag carousel. Go to the front of the store, they have a long conveyor belt, and six bag carousels. Besides, they have AC, and I don't. 6. Little kids, I love them! Keep them coming, they're a lot of fun! All the cashiers love interacting with them. Last week I had a little 3-year-old girl give me a hug, and another little girl said "I love you" to me! Made my day! I also like the little old ladies, they're such a hoot! 7. I'll talk sports with customers all day long, but please, no politics or religion. That can get real heated in a hurry. I'll just agree with you, and that'll be that. It's certainly an interesting job, with a whole cast of characters coming through my line every day. Doesn't pay much, but at my age, there's not too many places that will hire an older worker, so for the next 6 years it'll have to be Walmart. I'm part-time, so while the money may not be there I do enjoy the extra time off. More time to practice my bass!
