October 2015, Morrison’s – Christmas Temp/ Café Assistant
During time I have spent at Morrison’s, I was able to build my confidence by interacting with new people and help them in the best of my ability to for fill their needs through good customer service. My overall job was to put stock out and tidy the shelves in the busy hours of Christmas. From my good work and motivation, Morrison’s decided to offer me a permanent job after Christmas in the customer café. Here I am responsible for working the till while interacting with customers, operating the pot wash, cleaning/tidying, serving food and cooking. I also work for admin where I do legal checks on product increases and decreases and also make sure all the current standing offers are correct.
