Is working a cash register hard if you're not good at math?

Is working a cash register hard if you're not good at math? Topic: Is working a cash register hard if you're not good at math?

Question: So I know working the actual cash register is easy, sure. But I'm really, REALLY bad at math, and I was wondering even though the cash register does most of the work for you, how hard will the rest be? I've never worked with one before but I'm about to next month, and I'm kinda worried cause I'm SO bad at math. ok, this is how bad I am. I can't do any math in my head (except for like, 2+2 stuff), and even then most of the time I use my fingers. I USE MY FINGERS TO COUNT. Growing up I was home schooled (though this isn't why I'm so bad at math - ha ha very funny), and my mom thought I had dyslexia. I'm extremely right brained (left handed, writer, blah blah blah) so I'm not stupid, doing math is just impossible. Will it not make a difference or should I practice a butt ton with money? Or does anyone have any other ideas to help prepare me? Thanks!!

I just try to look at various things and not stare. I look at the cash register and try to imagine how much money is in there, then I quickly look at the cashier and think how easy it would be to just snatch the money, then I look at the store lay-out and try to figure out the best escape route, and then I look at my measly purchases and think about how I would spend all that loot......... and by then the transaction is over and I walk away like a cowardly chicken, knowing that I will never be loved for who I really am. So you think you have problems?

There's always so much to look at around the registers, it's pretty easy to find stuff to look at. It's probably better manners to make small talk during this time with the cashier. I've been a cashier before and always appreciated these nice folks-unfortunately they were few and far between. I also have to admit I'm not good at small talk and being on the customer side, I'm guilty of not making much conversation. I do though try to be cordial and nice to the cashier the entire time I'm there-I've been in their shoes and know how hard it can be.

These days everyone is paying with plastic. The register does all the math and tells you what to give back. After a few days, you'll be counting change in your sleep. I used to be one and believe me, anyone can be one. Just watch out for the shortchange artists.

If you can read and push numbers you should be OK. The only possible problem could be in giving back change. And if you can count, that should work.

Running a cash register was also my first job and it isnt hard, if its a newer machine it will be even easier. Most of it is remembering what everything does-but trust me once you get use to it you'll fly through it. If you make a mistake just tell your manager most any mistake can be fixed easily--but dont just forget about it and not tell anyone- everyone is slow at first with any job and of course makes mistakes-but trust me youll live. Youll get so use to it that youll laugh at yourself. ; ) Good Luck!
