Dear [Mr.]/[Mrs.]/[Ms.] [Hiring Manager’s Surname],
I am writing to you today concerning the open position for grocery cashier. Because I have been seeking such a role, I was delighted to see this role advertised and would like to submit my application because I believe I would be a perfect fit for the job.
I have four years of experience as a cashier in the fast-paced retail industry and have worked for Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. As a store clerk, my primary role was using the point-of-service (POS) cash register. I logged an average of 97 transactions daily, worth approximately $7500. Additionally, I promoted our loyalty card, provided exemplary customer service, and assisted customers to locate their requested items. I believe that working at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods has given me substantial experience at operating POS terminals, using handheld scanning devices in store, and managing customer concerns to provide them with a first-rate shopping experience.
I note that the Lloyd Blvd location is the latest new Sam’s Club outlet and that you are looking to hire numerous new personnel. I would like to point out to you that I have experience training five new hires at Trader Joe’s, so I feel that—combined with my extensive retail experience—I could not only hit the ground running but provide guidance to staff without any backgrounds in retail roles.
I can assure you that I am a responsible and diligent worker with a passion for making customers feel valued, at ease, and welcome. I would be thankful for the opportunity to interview with you and can be reached at (575) 476-4795 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.
