Dear Ms. Bryant,
I am applying for the Store Assistant position with The Container Store and I have the skills and experience you seek in an applicant.
I have three years of experience working as a cashier for a large retail store in which my number one duty was to provide outstanding customer service. I enjoyed greeting the customers and making small talk while checking them out, which is also a great time to implement suggestive selling.
I have experience assisting customers who are searching for specific items or answering any questions they may have. I also dealt with customers that were not happy with their purchase or that needed to make exchanges or refunds for some reason.
Part of my duties included stocking merchandise on delivery days and making sure all items were priced correctly. It also included keeping the store clean, stocking shelves and keeping all merchandise organized. I collected damaged or opened packages and placed them in the stock room where they could be accounted for by the manager.
I have excellent math skills with the ability to count money accurately and I have experience dealing with all forms of payments. I also participated in internal audits conducted every six months after hours. My resume contains a more detailed account of my work history, skills and abilities that I believe make the best applicant for this position.
I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss the specifics of this position in more details and you can contact me by calling (555)-555-5555.
