Express Cashier Job Description & Interview
Job Description and Duties
What Does an Express Cashier Do?
Customers at Express typically interact with cashiers at the beginning and end of a shopping experience. Cashiers with the national retail brand primarily ring up purchases. Express cashiers may tell customers about any deals or sale items within the store. Cashiers at Express also push for customers to open credit lines with the retailer and communicate the advantages of opening such an account.
Other Daily Duties
Due to the smaller size of many Express stores, cashiers may need to perform some additional duties, up to and including, stocking shelves, organizing the sales floor, and occasionally cleaning the store. The main focus of a cashier, though, concerns manning the cash register and keeping the store flowing smoothly.
Salary and Compensation
How Much Do They Get Paid?
Hourly wages for Express cashiers are between $8.00 and $9.00. More than just a high-end clothing store chain, Express entices employees by offering some standard and interesting work benefits to eligible store associates. Like many other retailers, Express offers rather substantial discounts on store clothing and other merchandise. Discounts even pass on to certain family members of an employee.
Other employment benefits available to workers include flexible scheduling and paid time off. Though not available to part-time workers, full-time Express associates may access a comprehensive health and wellness plan, which includes health, vision, medical, and dental coverage. Store managers may even access a 401(k) retirement program after working for Express a certain amount of time.
