A typical day at work, for me, starts with counting my till. I then turn on my light and begin courteously, efficiently and expediently, getting our clientele through the checkout process.
I have learned to deal with all kinds of people, situations and emergencies. I have also learnt how to respond to irate/angry customers without taking their attitude personally.
Management is a key team of men and women, who are an instant resource in our store. There is always someone, close at hand, to help out in any and all situations.
I have a great rapport with my co-workers and a lot of us will get together outside of the store, to do fun things together, in our community.
The hardest part of my job is dealing with and trying to appease, an angry customer. Every angry customer, is an opportunity for me to learn and use the proper mechanisms to deal with and assuage the customer.
The most enjoyable part of the job, for me is, everything else!
