See the dock area and how the team processes shipments and strategically arranges them through displays on the sales floor. (It’s all about appealing to the customer!) Watch employees use a till (aka cash register) and prioritize tasks in a timely manner. Most importantly, get some tips on how to provide excellent customer service. Prepare for your future and sign up now!
