Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. (Manager’s Name)

I’m writing you today regarding the open position for head cashier. As this is a role I am currently seeking, I was pleasantly surprised at my luck, and wish to take this opportunity to apply, as I feel I’d be a perfect fit for the job.

I have 8 years of experience as a cashier in the retail industry, having worked the last 3 years for Best Buy. As a Cashier, my main function was operating the POS cash register, handling 92 transactions on average daily, maintain thorough knowledge of store merchandising and providing exceptional customer service. Working at Best Buy has helped me learn the ins and outs of successful cashier operation, how to file important financial information, handle daily accounts and maintain inventory. I have successfully received top ratings for accuracy and efficiency throughout my tenure.

Previously, I also worked at Barnes & Nobles as a Cashier, where I increased customer satisfaction by 9% in just 6 months by implementing new corporate strategies. I take pride in working with integrity, and have a passion for delivering and promoting outstanding results as an individual, and as part of a team. I would be thankful for a chance to interview with you, and hope that you afford me the opportunity.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Chutney,

I am responding with interest to the advertised Cashier position at JC Penney’s. My customer service and math skills make me a good choice. I have four years of cashier experience and a high school diploma.

In my current Cashier job at Sears I use counting abilities and knowledge of key shortcuts to apply coupon codes and discounts. I am fast and treat all guests with friendliness and courtesy. My experience includes the ability to encourage customers to apply for the department store credit card to achieve greater discounts for their purchases and I had the highest percentage of customers do so out of all of the cashiers at Sears in a contest. In addition to great communication and social skills I am able to answer guest questions and provide store information. I have learned how to skillfully gift wrap presents during the holiday season. I understand the strong need to provide Cashier service with a smile and I strive to do that every day.

I know I will be a great fit for the Cashier position. I can be reached via telephone for an interview. I look forward to discussing my future at JC Penney’s as a cashier with you.

Sincerely,

Del Stephens
