Essentially my job is a parallel to the store assistant role, I'm required to work the tills, put stock on the shelves, face the store and show excellent customer service skills at every opportunity I have. I will also undergo training from management to gain experience and learn new skills.
Working on the tills has definitely improved my mathematics ability by working out change and remembering figures as well as cashing up at the end of the shift. I have also improved on my customer service skills in a very forward facing role and am proud to be the polite person I am.
