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

8/10

My days include taking deliveries, organising the shop floor and ensuring customers are happy and can find items they are looking for by assisting them. I also get to serve customers on the tills and manage the money. Also I have to make sure the shop stays clean and safe

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

8/10

I’ve developed a good understanding on how the shop runs and how the company values its customers. This has developed my customer service skills and problem solving skills when a customer isn’t pleased with something. I have also learnt how to count money accurately and quickly when working under pressure

Yes
