Many of these markets hire young people, some still in high school, to work as boxers and shelf stockers.
This is a matter of properly placing groceries in bags or putting items on the shelves in proper order.
Fortunately, girls as well as boys are hired for these positions.
In making an application for the job it will be necessary to fill out a complete resume.
If you do not know how to do this your school counselor or a person at the local employment office will be happy to assist.
It is important that the resume be factual and honest.
The store manager will be aware that you have little or no experience, in doing this kind of work, however other things will be meaningful.
Any kind of work you have done and how long should be noted.
Having things listed such as when you worked in the school store, helped out in a homeless shelter or other community project, helped with church sales or anything of that sort is very impressive.
It will show the manager that you are versatile and able to fit in almost anywhere.
Along with your resume you should have letters of reference complete with phone numbers of people who can be called.
At the store you will be required to make out an application.
That is where your resume will really come in handy.
It will have all the work you have done and have other information that can easily be transferred to this paper.
It is a good idea to ask that your resume and references be stapled to the application so that they are together if someone else is going to review them.
People working in supermarket jobs are expected to be on time, be polite, and put in a good days work.
One way to quickly lose a job is to be sarcastic or horse around.
In addition, when applying for the job and when working, you should dress appropriately and your hair should be trimmed or neatly arranged.
People with studs in their mouth, nose and ears are not likely to get a job in a supermarket or anywhere the public is served.
