As an apprentice in savers it basically contains learning how to do everything a supervisor does. For example counting tills and shop floor training. We also get 1 hour each week to get online work done. No homework ever! Always done in work . You learn about health and safety work first. I love working as an apprentice it’s the best decision I made
I have developed many skills as an apprentice I feel like I know how to do the supervisor role. 2 recent skills I’ve been focusing On is counting tills and doing safe checks every night I also know about shrinkage which when I started I had no clue what it was and I was worried but now I’m confident. Savers also allows you to expand your confidence within people and customers and I love that it’s always pushing me to improve.
I love my program I love how it challenges me and makes me work harder! I love challenges and obstacles because it teaches me how to overcome them and how to improve, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so alive and happy I just feel like I’m constantly learning and over coming new things! And becoming the best version of myself
My Programme is very organised. We have a call with our Assessors every so often and they set you work make sure your on track and is always up to help. Your team will always make sure you have that hour a week. Your managers will constantly teach you new things and help you whenever you need!
We receive so much help from my employees on a daily. They so lovely and always support me the team are so friendly and helpful. They always make sure my training is done and I know what I’m doing! They I couldn’t of asked for a better company to do it with!
Our training providers support us aswell so we have a call every now and then to ensure that your in track. But if you need any help before the next call they always make sure they are able to help you in any way possible! They also set you training i between calls so you always have something to do
Honestly I love my training provider she’s so sweet and helpful she is always helping me by answering all my questions about anything! She is always making sure I’m okay and happy with what tasks that she set me. She likes to make sure that my store is good and that my training is good
So at the minute I’m the social media champ! Which basically means I post on our social media pages like Facebook ect all our deals or some really good bargains. Or it also could be new products we get in. But we do this to attract customers to our stores to buy what we post
Because the staff are so so sweet our stores are so cheap and cheerful and we ensure that our shop is tidy and faced. We make sure that all our stock is on the shelf and ready to buy, I just love savers in general I love what they sell because it’s a little bit of everything
Try your very best always make sure the areas safe and tidy because health and safety is a requirement and you do not want to break that law. Make sure to do all the little things and your job will be so much easier. I always try and get all tag requests done and picklist and zero to zeros as soon as I get in so I then can empty the stock room and get it onto the shelves push our promotional goods! And be happy!
