So I have a little bit of a situation at work I’m trying to solve. I work in the food industry and I’m often at drive through, cashing people out. Lately, we’ve had a lot of problems at work with people’s tills being short money (anything over a few dollars is too much) so my boss put up a note saying that if anyone is over/under $5 then we will be getting written up. I’ve been really trying to get promoted and getting written up means I cannot be promoted for six months..so I’m really trying to make sure I can keep control of my money.
My boss came to me today and told me that there has been at least one incident in the last couple weeks in which my till was at least $5 off. I was completely shocked/embarrassed. I make sure to count my money at least 2-3 times before giving it back to the person and I usually always double check the screen to make sure too. The only time that someone else is supposed to be allowed to use my register is when I’m on break, but there are times where we are more lenient because I’m cleaning and can’t get to it right away so the likelihood that someone else could’ve messed up my till is there.
Anyways, now that I’ve been talked to I’m really going to make sure that no one else uses my till, but I’m looking for ideas. We drop all our twenties so there have been times I’ve accidentally left the money lying across the other bills and shut the drawer, causing the bill to get jammed behind the drawer and lost. I told my boss this and she understood.
So, I’m looking for ideas or suggestions. I’ve tried crossing my bills across so if someone asks for change then I know what they gave me, but that’s been unsuccessful as there is a higher chance of it getting jammed or lost.
