At the beginning of the shift, each cashier should count the beginning balance of their cash drawer. The cashier should then prepare a cash change fund sufficient for operations during their shift. All change requests or questions regarding the balance of the drawer should be directed to the sales manager. Cashiers should avoid obtaining change from any other cashiers.
Proper cash register practices should be used for all transactions. Cash drawers should only be opened when a tendered amount is entered, whether cash, check, credit card or cash is paid out. You should verify checks with two forms of ID (one with picture) and write driver’s license number on the check. Checks for more than the amount of purchase should require specific approval from the sales manager. Checks should be immediately restrictively endorsed (by stamp: “for deposit only – store name”).
