I was required to count, tally, and do a deposit each night which was sent up to the cash office along with the float for the following day. As I worked at a large and popular tourist attraction my ability to speak French was certainly useful on many occasions. As a cashier I was expected to quickly and courteously move people through my cash line. My duties also included light cleaning and stocking shelves when there was not a surplus of people in the gift shops which I rotated through. I also developed excellent communication skills with customers, co-workers and management. April/ 2009 - October/ 2009 April/ 2010 - October/ 2010
