I’m always chatting with my manager to make sure that I’m across any feedback, issues and tasks for the day.
We fill the fridges, face all the labels forward, and take pride in our store’s presentation.
I manage new inventory, orders and invoices. It all helps to keep the store running smoothly.
We’re constantly reading the feedback forms to see what’s working and where we can improve.
New deals and specials are properly setup for display so the customer can spot them straight away.
I joined BWS back in 2017. I liked the vibe and the values that the organisation stood for. Once I had my induction and got started, I fell in love with the culture. I felt energised and strived to learn more. That’s how I’ve moved from casual to trainee manager so quickly.
As a trainee manager, I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by a team with really impressive initiative. If I leave a list of three tasks, they’ll dive in and do extra. That makes my job easier. And it makes the store so much better.
Our store is located in a tight-knit community, so I try to encourage all our staff to create personal connections and get to know the locals. Is there a special occasion they are buying for? What’s a product you could suggest that would be a good fit? It’s not just about the sales. We really try and make it a great in-store experience.
It is nice to feel heard by my manager. If I have a suggestion for a display or a way to make a process more efficient, it’s taken on board. That’s part of the reason I’m taking on the leadership opportunities here.
I’m working towards having a store of my own, and who knows where to from there.
