You might be the first, last, and sometimes only associate that customers interact with. That's why it's so important to smile, greet, and thank each and every customer. The pace can be intense, especially in the evenings, on weekends, and during a holiday season. There are times when you have to juggle several tasks in a short amount of time while helping customers: scan items, explain a price, bag items properly, count cash back, and keep your area clean--you get the idea! Duties and Responsibilities Cashier * Smile, greet, and thank customers with a positive attitude * Stand for long periods of time while checking out customers quickly and accurately * Keep your area clean and presentable * Answer customer questions and help them with their needs * Be available to assist associates across the store as needed Cart and Janitorial * Ensure customers have a great first and last impression * Gather carts from the parking lot * Operate equipment to move carts from the parking lot to inside the store * Clean restrooms, salesfloor, and parking lot as needed * Have a positive attitude in all weather conditions About Walmart At Walmart, we help people save money so they can live better.

On average, it takes 45-60 minutes to complete your application for the first time. Subsequent applications will take less time to apply as our system saves some of your application information. Please note that some positions require the completion of assessments in order to receive consideration for that role. Those would take additional time. * Can I change my application after submitting? No, you cannot change your application after submitting, so please make sure that everything is finalized before you hit the submit button. * How do you protect my personal information? Processing of information on paper is minimal, and Walmart processes application information using an applicant tracking system (ATS). Access to the data within the ATS is restricted to authorized personnel, and the system itself is held to high security standards by Walmart. * What are the recommended Internet Browsers for applying for open roles? * Internet Explorer 8.0+ * Firefox 4.0+ * Safari 4.0+ * Chrome 12+ See All FAQs Recently viewed jobs Wal-Mart Manchester NH
