Dear Ms. Painter,
I saw your job posting for a Store Associate and I am confident that I am the best person for this job.
I am currently employed with SweetWorks, Inc where I hold this position but I would like the opportunity to enhance my career by working for a larger retail company such as yours. In addition, I believe that I have a lot to offer your company and that I can be a great member of your sales team.
When working in sales, providing excellent customer service is vital and I have the attitude and personality to make customers feel welcome, which keeps them coming back. I am always friendly and treat customers and co-workers with respect at all times.
I learn fast, so I have the ability to answer customers questions and to provide them with information about the products they are interested in buying. I have experience using a variety of different cash registers and I can learn any system quickly. I can count money and make change accurately and I have experience dealing with all forms of payment. My experience also includes processing exchanges and making refunds based on company policy.
I have experience answering phones, transferring calls and relaying customer requests and suggestions to the store manager. My duties also included pricing merchandise, returning products to their proper place and keeping the store clean. I am flexible enough to work different shifts and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to set up an interview.
