1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


My role involves serving customers at the till point and keeping that area clean and tidy and queue free. I also fill the drinks fridge twice a day, and fill the fragrance cabinet and makeup counters. Another role of mine includes facing up the store to make it clean, tidy and welcoming for the next day. Finally I also sweep the floors and all mats.
