As a sales clerk at Dollar Tree, I run the cash register at the front of the store and handle people's transactions. However, I have also learned along the way how to stock the store, take care of customer complaints, answer phone calls and questions. I've also learned the importance of clean and interesting presentation for our products.I am paying for my own schooling, so it has always been important for me to have a steady job in order to pay for all of life's necessities. However, I know that working in a retail position is about more than the money.While at Dollar Tree, I learned some important lessons, such as:Cash handling/cash register skillsCustomer service and satisfactionThe art of displaying products in an attractive waySettling disputes in a pleasant mannerAs someone who has worked 25-35 hours a week while still attending classes at IUP, I know the value of being able to balance a full schedule. I have also proven that I am a hard worker who is able to handle high stress levels and "the real world."
