To be a cashier a high school diploma is required. The stores vary but typically give you a couple of weeks of on the job training.

Professional Development is key to success. Please briefly share your career development story:

When I started working as a cashier I was still in high school. Since I graduated I’ve been telling myself that I could do better than a dead end job .My mother wasn’t happy that I wanted to go to a university so I had to take the ACT test  that a normal high school student takes during high school after graduating. With the support from my husband and grandmother I applied to UW-Parkside and I start in the fall of 2012 in the nursing program. I am also going to take a certified nursing assistant class before I start in the fall.
