Cashier Responsibilities


When you are the cashier, you'll need a few minutes to get things ready. So please arrive by 10 minutes to the hour and clock in so you get paid for the time.

The SCR

Grab a new SCR form and fill it out as follows:  Sign it at the top. Write in the store, day, date, and shift. Count the "Change Fund" and list it. List the employees on the shift.

Later, as you begin to take orders, list the first Ticket # for the shift. Then you'll collect receipts and other forms for the shift for attaching and including later on.

Waitrpads & POS Receipts

The Waitrpads we use to write the orders, and the receipts that are printed by the POS system, are not to be casually treated. These are company documents that must be prepared and handled properly. So let's learn about these for the various types of orders we have.

Dine-In Orders

A written waitrpad is required for every dine-in order.

As you take dine-in orders:

  1. Write the order, using abbreviations, on the waitrpad;
  2. enter the order into the POS system;
  3. before pressing the DONE key, double check what you entered by comparing the waitrpad to the POS order screen;
  4. the initial receipt prints;
  5. staple the receipt to the waitrpad;
  6. deliver both to the customer right away.

Later, when you settle the order, staple the settled receipt to the waitrpad with the initial receipt. You'll then have a waitrpad sheet, with the initial receipt and a final receipt stapled as depicted here.

Place the stapled group of receipts into the receipt basket.
