okay well I am very excited about trying to give my young life a head start in my job. I am right now a POS at my job ( Cashier/Customer Service) and a position just opened that alot of my co workers and some managers think I would be great at, which is being the Store Managers Assistant. Well I am very nervous as others have applied for the position and it is going to be based off of your previous jobs worked and weather you are the material you need. I am wondering if i have a shot at it, I dont have alot of experience as being an assistant but I do have experience in sales and retail. I use to work at walmart as my first teenage job and then I moved on to Friendlys as a hostess/waitress/cashier and then I jumped from this as a job because of moving to CCS which is a collection agency and was very fast paced and full of suprises ( I mean why wouldnt I find suprises in calling people up and demanding them to pay money for there bills lol) and that was very computer hands on and also hands on with talking to people on the phone, which this job is pretty much being based off of. I also then left CCS as I wasnt doing so hot being demanding in people making paments and went to LL BEAN as a Customer Service/Cashier, which I was on the computer all day with making calls, setting up orders and looking up information online and just so much computer stuff I can hardly list it all. And then after LL BEAN closed its doors down in my neighborhood I looked for a job to get into quickly to pay my bills and that got me into sales for male enhancment products and also for face creams ( believe me a little bit embarressed) and then after a few months in that and leaving because the call center closed down it leaves me at Kohls were I work now. I have been there for more than 91 days and in those days have only missed 1 day. I know that is a very good record as half the people there missed 13 days from the same group in my 91 days review. I am just wondering pretty much will I be qualified enough or do I need a degree to look better and also what would be some good questions to ask and what would be good to say to be seen as a mature responsibile young woman? I have never tried to get up the ladder in work and I am 22 and married and responsible. I guess I am just asking. Whats should I do?
sorry for such long typing pretty much the job is going to be answering the phones, doing payroll, handling mail the store manager doesnt need to handle and also just being everywhere at once and making sure clearance is set up and everything is running smoothly so the store manager doesnt have to worry about anything. I feel confident I may qualify but if a manager wanted that position they might get it and not me and the person who had it before was my friend steph and she was 25 with a child and I have no child. this is just extra to add to it thanks!
