Industries & Professions /
The gaming industry relies on a variety of workers for specific customer services and operational tasks. One example of a service position is that of cashier. Cashiers may be categorized as either coin cashiers or change persons. Basically, these employees work in a cage or at a station on the gaming floor and make change and sell coins to patrons for slot machines. They may pay off slot machine jackpots and keep records of all transactions. At the end of each shift, they count and balance their money drawers. Cashiers also provide information to guests, call for cocktail servers to visit the slot area, and provide other customer services. The duties performed by cashiers in this capacity are similar to those of a host.
