Description of Activity:

Greeting and customer assistance, replenishing empty shelves/items, answering phone calls for customer service, responding to cash back-up


Customer service is a vital aspect in the functionality of any retail store. Friendly and professional staff that can provide insight on a customers interests will encourage them to keep coming back. Especially because Michaels is a store that sells "wants" rather than "needs", creating a lasting impression on our customers is crucial, not only for the business, but for consumer morale. As the job of a sales associate is to help a customer locate their products with ease and to recommend similar items for their project, efficiency and overall knowledge is important to keeping the business rolling.
