For Christie. The most important thing to remember about a Customer Service position is the job itself is about delivering your best possible service with every customer interaction, you must be a good listener, don't anticipate what someone will say even if you heard it a hundred times before, be yourself and you must always remember that when you have a SMILE on your face it comes through on the telephone just the same when you have a frown. That really is the challenge in the times in which we are living. It took me a year to secure a job where I worked for nearly 18 years only to lose it due to COVID. If it's a company you really feel strongly about working for, don't give up! Keep positive, each time I got a rejection letter I would send a thank you note for their consideration even though it resulted in a rejection letter and that I would continue to apply. As soon as there was a position that more closely matched my skill set I was granted an interview and hired. With every company measuring every little thing it's important to remember that being consistent with customer interactions is something that even though the length of the call is being measured, you cannot accurately measure superior customer service but you CAN surely judge for yourself whether or not you gave 100% to every customer. And realize that we cannot always satisfy everyone but we certainly must do our very best to be our very best each and every day. Stay positive and remember to smile even if it hurts ha ha! Best of luck to you Christie. LDP

You have to be comfortable in your own skill believe in what your selling and have all the knowledge. Builds trust with your clients makes them want to continue to deal with you and remember people are always having a bad day. They are mad at the situation not you! Good luck

Since there are so many sales entry points operating simultaneously, including online and drive through, you have to be on your toes. One order can become 10 orders in a matter of seconds. Also, anticipating the rush periods based on history and having product ready is key. Cross training is critical to success. You never know when you are going to get a big ice cream rush in the middle of happy hour or a school bus show up and order 100 coneys.

Find a good CDL school near you and go for it. It is definitely a career that takes a special someone to do and if you can make it through truck driving school, you have what it takes to make the money you deserve.

Availability. It really depends where you are. Some stores may say they have a hiring freeze. That just means that they’re trying to recoup losses.

You need to get into a vet tech program. There are on site programs. Research to see what’s local for you. I think there are online programs too. Working in a clinic is invaluable, since it gives you workplace experience.
