Has this scenario ever happened to one of your cashiers?
The bell rings and before they can even sign into their POS stations, a line of kids is stretched around the whole cafeteria waiting for a hot, nutritious lunch.
In many schools across the country, students get 30 minutes or less to go through the lunch line and eat their lunch. Often times, the lunch period might even be split with recess or other school activities.
This makes the job of a cashier especially critical for making sure students get through the serving line as quickly as possible.
