The reason I'm asking this question is why if your customers are trust you with their belongings why not trust them with your money. I have been in this business 15 years and have never been asked to count the drawer until recently. Its not that I mind doing it I would just like to treat my employee with some trust. Do you own the company that you run?
I am the manager and the only employee of my facility. My owner does not require me to count my drawer, but I do it weekly anyway and keep a record of it for myself. I think it's an acurracy thing. I know I am not perfect, I could give the wrong change or forget to give someone change or add up a cash deposit incorrectly. My drawer count is important to me because if I find an error, I know it is from a transaction within the past week and should be easier to figure out.
I am the manager of our site and I count my drawer each morning before opening for business. Again this is something the owners have asked us to do but they have never had me count the drawer for them. I require the relief manager to count the drawer when she opens as well as closes. We also have a paper that we fill out. I also find that this will help me catch any mistakes as well as let me know if I am getting low on some of the bills or change I will need to run the days business.
