I began at Dollar Tree, Inc. as the Store Manager in Cabot, AR. My duties there included, but were not limited to, opening and closing the store and supervising all store associates and assistant managers. I was responsible for freight flow, inventory, making schedules, answering the phone, cashing out all associate cash drawers at the end of each of three shifts per day, merchandising, seasonal transitions, ASR sets and resets, customer service, completing exchanges, running the register if the cashier gets overwhelmed or needed a break, and following the instruction of my district manager and regional management team. In this position I accomplished bringing the store up from running negative numbers in sales to running positive sales numbers and earning bonuses each month for me and my assistant managers. We received customer compliments daily and our customer base was gradually growing. I became well known at my store for showing much appreciation to my associates when it is deserved and following company policy. I led by example. I did the work right alongside my employees that I expected them to do. By doing this I earn the respect of my employees and ended up with great results in teamwork from everyone. I'm extremely happy when doing retail work and my great attitude brings out a great and happy attitude from all those around me.
