Sales Associate

Nov 2015 - Present
Hot Topic

I provide great customer service to make anyone feel welcome in our store.  I answer questions on apparel or merchandise.  I encourage better sales that both supports the business and lets the customer walk away happy.  I also organize shipments and place products on the floor in their proper place.  I enjoy making the displays neat and aesthetically pleasing.

Hostess

Aug 2015 - Oct 2015
Denny's

I welcomed everyone who came in the door in a professional and friendly way; upholding the company's image as I was taught to.  I seated customers in an organized pattern while also remaining in contact with all of the servers on staff to ensure that the work was evenly distributed. I was actively ready to be the cashier for every party on their way out of the restaurant.  I made sure they were leaving happy with their experience.  I also cross-trained as a server and managed phone orders.
