How to be a great shop assistant, and what to do if you want to claim accident at work compensation from your employer
Being a good employee means more than just showing up to work on time every day. If you want to keep your job and have a good time then you need to put in a little extra effort and try to be the best employee you can be. Being a great shop assistant means working with the customers and providing great customer service every day, to everyone that you come across. Here are some ways in which you can be a great shop assistant and continue up the ranks in your chosen profession.
- Be polite and friendly. You need to be polite to all customers, no matter how unfriendly they may be behaving towards you. Often approaching an angry customer with politeness and calm will help to diffuse the situation, meaning that the problem will be dealt with quickly and easily.
- Go above and beyond. If a customer asks for something and it is possible for you to do it, don’t let laziness or being too busy put you off doing these things. A customer will really appreciate it and good customer service is what will keep customers coming back.
- Be helpful. If you see a customer looking lost or trying to find help, offer your help straight away. If they don’t want your help this is fine, but you may find that they were just too nervous to ask, and you will be able to improve their experience by offering to help.
- Don’t hover. Customers don’t like it when shop assistants hover over them, as it seems like you don’t trust them. It can also put people off buying something if they feel that their shopping is being watched. You should be available, but not hover too closely when someone is trying to shop.
