Introduction

Job roles from the Morrison bakery section In this partition of the coursework I will be studying three different job be looking specifically at sales within the bakery section of Morrison's.

With the responsibility of being a sales assistant you would have to carry out daily activities include serving the customers in the bakery department, and operating the till and taking money. Complete any documentation that is necessary, laying out the products, restock and tidy away at the end of the day. Regularly clean the area, and to follow the supervisors instructions. The job security that comes with this varies as this is low skilled and so easily replaced if they do not do their job as expected. The decision making that comes with this are small, mostly generally only about themselves and their actions at work. To do this job you would have to have these qualifications, skills and qualities: possibly an NVQ or equivalent or working to a modern apprenticeship. Should be able to communicate well with customers, and able to complete necessary administration and operate the till. Also you need to be able to present food well and display a professional clean appearance. You need to be hard working and motivated with technical skills where appropriate, and to be reliable. The pay and benefits that come with this job is a starting wage depending on experience �5 per hour. ?? ?? ?? ?? Unit 2; Section B - 1 - ...read more.
