    Default Money Drawer

    I was wondering how often most managers count their cash drawer and petty cash?

    I count mine daily. Seems to be the thing to do that works for me, and, I have a form for employees to fill out and sign at the end of each shift.

    I was just wondering how many employees you have and who makes your bank deposits

    I have two employees and do the banking myself. Or rather, my husband does the banking!

    Default cash drawer

    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.
    Lovin it.

    As a manager we do daily deposits - with that we count the drawer every night.

    We have a relief (Assistant) and he also must balance everything every night.

    A minimum of twice a week Beverly counts out the Petty Cash - she also keeps all the books.

    The owners know that they can come in and check at any time (they never have as they completely trust us and the checks and balances we have instituted.

    Every once in a while we will be off by anywhere from $1 to $10 (usually me or the Relief ), but Beverly can usually find it
