Dear Mr. Jones,
I am responding to Smitty’s ad for a cashier position and know I’d be good at the job. I have two years of experience working as a cashier at Sav-A-Lot Foods and understand point of sale systems and how to count money and give change. I am a high school graduate with good basic math skills.
At the beginning and end of each of my shifts, I count my drawer with the other cashier to make sure it is not long or short. I am proud that my drawer has always balanced and I have never had a problem. I am good at taking food stamps, credit cards and cash payments for groceries and I never forget to offer coupons and receipts to customers.
Providing friendly customer service is always my goal. I understand that if customers are happy, they will return and a large part of that depends on their shopping experience and how they are treated. To that end, I treat every customer with respect.
I make a great cashier and would love to come on board at Smitty’s. I have enclosed a copy of my resume as well as my references. Please call me soon for an interview.
