Retail Associate

Whitmire's Fine Jewelry

It's my job to make sure that everyone who enters the store has a pleasant and helpful experience. I have made myself knowledgeable about our inventory and services because it's important to me to have the answer when a costumer asks me a question. It is also my responsibility to keep the store neat, tidy, and aesthetically pleasing. I clean the jewelry, Windex all of the glass display cases multiple times a day, dust, sweep, vacuum, create displays, keep displays stocked and organized, as well as stopping whatever project I'm working on to greet and offer my assistance as soon as a customer enter the establishment.

Attending College

Horry-Georgetown Technical College

I graduated high school with such a high gpa that I'm attending HGTC for free. I'm spending this time to figure out for sure what career path I want to take. I'm being smart about my time and taking general classes that will transfer over to whatever major I decide.

High School Deploma

Georgetown High School

I accomplished all my needed credits a semester early. I had the ability to graduate a full year ahead of schedule but chose to stretch it out so I could walk the stage with the people I've gone to school with since I was five.

Skills

Skills

Sales

I am great at getting merchandise out the door. I give the customer the attention they need. I relate to them and connect with them. I build trust so when they ask for my professional opinion they take stock in it. I find it gives them the extra push they needed to head to the register. I make them feel special so they leave having had a great experience. To me that's the most tried and true, sure fire way to create repeat business.

P.O.S.

I am familiar with P.O.S. systems and comfortable using them.

Customer Service

I have substantial experience in customer service. The jewelry store I work at is located at The Hammock Shops in Pawleys Island, a destination for many tourists, therefore I have experience working with people from all different backgrounds with all different attitudes. I have assisted nightmare costumers and never lost my professionalism.

He has spent a lot of time with me and seen me grown since when I first came to him never having had a job before.
