New guy here

Sep 12, 2020
Hey guys, I was just hired as a grocery Merchandise Expert, was originally looking for cashier but they thought I would be a good fit for this position. I’ve read the job description taken the tour with the manger but I was curious to what a day in the life of a 6am to 2pm merchandise expert is truly like. I haven’t done anything like this before. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.. I would like to be great at this. Btw they said I would be in consumables most likely

Understand going in itll seem overwhelming and your training never really ends, ask questions, use the training shifts to learn the basics and set a solid foundation, then expand your learning from there. Try and ask questions that explain why things are done and not just how to do them. Come back and ask more questions here once you get the basics as well. Good luck.
