    Are you comfortable handling a cash register and managing transactions?

      The interviewer wants to know that you are comfortable, and experienced when it comes to handling sales transactions. If you have experience with a particular type of program, you can indeed mention the names of the programs.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Customer sales support is part of the role as a customer service representative in a retail setting. I take pride in ensuring accuracy in all transactions and am comfortable handling registers. I have experience with POS and the use of Moneris."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Although I am new to the workforce, I am confident in my ability to manage cash and credit card transactions. With just a little bit of training, I will be good to go! Is there any program that I can begin to study, to get a head start?"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Handling sales transactions was a large part of my last role in a fashion retail store. Every day included cash transactions and settling the till at the end of the shift to make sure all purchases were accounted for. Many times, my manager relied on me to transfer the funds to the bank or pick up deposit slips for the store."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Try exuding more confidence in your response. Chances are, you have used point of sale machines as a customer, already giving you an idea how that technology works. Also, you have handled cash in your personal life, making purchases, etc. You know more than you think!

      "I am comfortable handling cash and making change for customers. I am familiar with the idea of point of sale machines as well. I am confident that, with a bit of training, I will learn your internal systems quickly."
