I have good communication which means I would be able to speak to customers clearly and listen to their questions carefully when serving them. This will mean that I will be more efficient in helping them find what it is they are looking for. I also have good numeracy skills which I can use when working on the tills to process payments and handle money. These skills will make me suitable for the christmas temp job in Boots.
