Summary of Job Function
The job description for a fast-food cashier requires candidates who can handle monetary transactions in a fast-paced environment. Candidates for this position must be personable, with a talent for administering customer service. Fast food cashiers manage all monetary exchanges in the restaurant by taking orders and ringing up transactions, serve as a liaison between the customer, the managerial staff and the kitchen staff, and keep the front area of the restaurant clean and well stocked.

Essential Responsibilities
  • Greets all customers politely when they enter the restaurant.
  • Records customer orders, both at the counter and at the drive-through (if applicable).
  • Transfers orders to the kitchen to ensure their preparation.
  • Monitors orders and ensures their prompt delivery.
  • Helps package food in boxes and bags.
  • Helps cook food and otherwise works in the kitchen, when necessary.
  • Up-sells in-store promotions, when applicable.
  • Listens to and resolves customer complaints, suggestions, and inquiries.
  • Keeps the counter and dining area neat and clean.
  • Sweeps and mops the floor regularly.
  • Restocks napkins, straws, lids, and other supplies in the dining area.
  • Tallies orders served and amount of cash received.
  • Handles bank transactions for the restaurant.
  • Inventories supplies and goods with supervising manager, when necessary.
  • Takes money from customers and provides correct change.
  • Processes credit card and debit card transactions.
  • Keeps track of a cash drawer and ensures it is balanced at the end of the shift.
Supervisory Responsibility
This position has no supervisory responsibilities.

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities
  • Can follow directions and achieve goals.
  • Demonstrates strong customer service and interpersonal skills.
  • Is able to communicate effectively to a variety of clientele.

Education and Experience
Candidates for this position do not need prior experience as relevant training is provided on the job to learn employer-specific functions such as how to operate the register and to learn information about menu items. Sales experience is a plus. Customer service experience does help when greeting customers, answering potential inquiries, and handling complaints, though this is not required.

Work Environment
A fast-food cashier serves a large volume of people over every shift, which can be taxing. Standing for long periods of time while placing orders and fielding customer complaints is expected, which may contribute to back strain and foot problems. Because paper money is a large carrier of bacteria and germs, frequent hand sanitization is another expectation. The environment is warm, bustling, and potentially noisy. The environment of a fast-food restaurant is populated by hot cooking surfaces, food, and oil, which can lead to injury.

Other Duties
Please note this job description is not designed to cover or contain a comprehensive listing of activities, duties, or responsibilities that are required of the employee for this job. Duties, responsibilities, and activities may change at any time with or without notice.
