Yesterday was my first day on the till and I was short 10 pound I have no idea how I was short that much. The manager was really annoyed and I feel really bad. I made sure not to give out the wrong change today and my till wasn’t short, but I can’t help but feel like she hates me now. She said that I lost more than how much they usually lose in a year.

It looks like you just made one mistake - not ideal but there you go. She won't hate you but she might have had to do extra paperwork. Just try and not make a mistake again

The last comment doesn’t seem exactly right coming from someone also working in retail 😂 Just keep doing what you did today and you’ll be grand. She’s probably just stressed about other things in general.

Okay thank you! do you know by any chance what they could do other than fire me? She told me if I go short on the till again she’ll have to contact HR, now I’m paranoid everytime I’m on the tills that I’ve given the wrong change. I have another job so it’s not like I need this job however I don’t want them to think I’m stealing or something cos that’s how they’re treating me at the moment.

Did you work that till the entire day - no breaks? If anyone else operated that till at any point they couldn't even be sure it was your mistake.

It is your duty to be careful but no one is perfect.

There really isn't much else they can do. I have heard of stories in the past about people being required to make up the shortfall but I suspect that this sort of thing is not allowed any more. Just concentrate so it doesn't happen again.
