How to answer
Be candid with the interviewer about your experience. The interviewer is trying to gauge how much training you will require in a new position. Honesty will lead to the best training experience, so openly share your cash register experience with the interviewer. Share if you have counted/balanced your drawer at the end of your shift. Share what functionality the cash register had. And, be sure to mention if you are familiar with ordering cash or requesting through a cash register.
