Ms. Helena Chang
I am writing to you today concerning the open position of grocery cashier. Because I have been seeking such a role, I was delighted to see this role advertised and would like to submit my application because I believe I would be a perfect fit for the job.
I have four years of experience as a cashier in the fast-paced retail industry and have worked for Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. As a store clerk, my primary role was using the point-of-service (POS) cash register. I logged an average of 97 transactions daily, worth approximately $7500. Additionally, I promoted our loyalty card, provided exemplary customer service, and assisted customers to locate their requested items. I believe that working at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods has given me substantial experience at operating POS terminals, using handheld scanning devices in-store, and managing customer concerns to provide them with a first-rate shopping experience.
I note that the Lloyd Blvd location is the latest new Sam’s Club outlet and that you are looking to hire numerous new personnel. I would like to point out to you that I have experience training five new hires at Trader Joe’s, so I feel that—combined with my extensive retail experience—I could not only hit the ground running but provide guidance to staff without any backgrounds in retail roles.
I can assure you that I am a responsible and diligent worker with a passion for making customers feel valued, at ease, and welcome. I would be thankful for the opportunity to interview with you and can be reached at (242) 123-4567 or at email@example.com.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.
