Class Concepts

Supervising Cashier

Under general supervision, incumbents (a) supervise and direct the work of at least six full-time-equivalent cashiers performing duties as outlined in the Series Concept in either a medium-sized cashier's office, or in a section of a large cashier's office, or in a large sub-cashiering station or other specialized cashiering unit geographically separate from the main office; or (b) plan, organize and direct the operation of a small main cashier's office with at least one other full-time-equivalent cashier; or (c) assist the Cashier's Office Manager in a large cashier's office in the overall administration, unit coordination, and management of the office, including supervisory responsibility; and perform other duties as required.

Senior Cashier

Under general supervision, incumbents perform the ~ost difficult cashiering duties which require extensive experience, judgement and training in order to determine appropriate courses of action from within a framework of broad and complex guidelines. Senior Cashiers may be assigned the training and day-to-day supervision of employees and, in a small office, may act in the absence of the manager or supervisor; however, they do not have the full-time supervisory or administrative responsibilities typical of the Supervising Cashier.

Incumbents typically verify daily records of receipts, check deposits and funds turned in by other cashiers, consolidate deposits, maintain control records of receipts and disbursements, process refund requests, follow-up on checks returned by a bank, prepare reports, and train new employees in cashiering procedures.

Cashier

Under supervision and in conformity with a variety of established procedures and guides, incumbents perform a variety of cashiering tasks of average difficulty as outlined in the Series Concept.
