Cage cashiers work in casinos where their main job is to exchange casino tokens for cash and vice versa. They are called cage cashiers because they work in the cage. This is an area in a casino where major financial transactions are conducted. All the money and casino chips are circulated through this cage. It is a hugely responsible job as it involves handling large amounts of money.
Becoming a cage cashier does not require advanced education. A high school diploma or GED certificate is usually sufficient but you will need to undergo extensive on-the-job training to understand all the rules and regulations of that particular casino. All casino workers, including cage cashiers, are required to have a state license. A background investigation and drug test will be conducted before you are granted a license. Cage cashiers must also have an eye for detail and good money handling, customer service and problem-solving skills.
