Foreword

The present Training Manual is based on my observations I have made during my stay at
different H.K.B express stores for last few days. It is apparent, when working with this Training
Manual, that retailing and selling are more complex issues than it looks from the surface that
need careful consideration.

There have been successes in the past, this is true; but however, a careful observation of the
present situation will make sure that competition is getting tougher & rigorous and in these
circumstances we can¶t rely on yesterday¶s success.

One result of participating in the training will be a growing awareness of the importance of sales
and best possible practices for selling techniques at express stores and thus playing important
role for sustainable growth of the organization. Fact sheets contained in the Manual provide a
general understanding of the issues. Sharing experiences and applying the participants¶
knowledge and understanding will be even more important. The Manual includes some
exercises which encourage participants to bring in their own experiences, share their ideas, and
apply them to their own work situation.

Furthermore the Manual emphasizes the importance of involvement of lower management, the
holders of best knowledge, in the decision-making process

This participatory process takes time, but it leads to more effective and sustainable results.

And in the very end I want to admit at this very early stage that this training manual would have
a lot of mistakes and areas of improvements so hope you will try to ignore them considering my
inexperience and lack of knowledge

!"# Sharpen the Saw

Tell participants a short story that is relevance to this Concept ±


Sharpen the Saw
-har
nh

-aw The Story goes like this:

#:

Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asks for a job with a
timber merchant, and he got it. The Salary was really good and so
were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was
determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed
him the area where he was supposed to work.

:

The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees "Congratulations,"


the boss said. "3o on that way!" Very motivated by the boss¶
words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only
bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he only
could bring 10 trees. aay after day he was bringing lesser and
lesser trees. "I must be losing my strength", the woodcutter
thought.

He went to his boss and apologized saying that he could not


understand what was going on. "èhen was the last time you
sharpened your axe?" the boss asked. "Sharpen? I had no time to
sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees..."

#% - Invest in improving your skill

If you go on only Selling products to every Customer at our Store


you will run out of skills that you have gained from the previous
experience or on this job and what will you do then? That¶s right
you will have to invest in time and effort to gain new techniques
and tricks to convince and delight customers in this ever changing
business.

Tell them, that¶s exactly what we are going to do in this session. It


is more like learning from each other. I am sure we will learn
mutually from each other. This is more like mutual exchange of
knowledge and skills through this programme.
Now we will see what are the different areas that we will be
covering during this session

""|$: The primary objective of this programme is: we want


you to walk out from here Smiling and in-turn makes your
0.35
Customers Smile with your Service.

""|$&||In the end we have also included some |#!:


èhat you will practice as a store in order to become successful at
your job and career ± to become a successful express store
employee

""|$: The whole module is divided into small topics so that


it will be easy to understand and will be effective when you
practice them as a whole.

Please contribute your learning and experience as and when


required so that we can make this session a process of knowledge
sharing. equest you not to jump immediately if you know
something in advance, however, you may raise your hands if you
want to add a point that will be helpful for the group. To make it
more interesting we will also be watching Videos and engage in
activities.|
0.40 $|"#&||An Activity: Questionnaire

è$|#|#'|

In this upbeat activity, all attendants will fill a Questionnaire that


 is provided to them to check their Customer Service level in
respect to our Customers. This is like the Customer Service
r
 personnel inventory.


n è$||'|

Ask respondents to fill the Questionnaire with the following


instructions below:

Ask them, how they performed the task of filling the


Questionnaire. Now do you know where you are good at and
where you need to improve?

Tell them: üou leave it here. This is just an exercise to know


ourselves. ao not worry about it. All you need is to concentrate
and participate actively to take more out of this programme.

"Customer service is the ability to provide a service or product in the way that it
has been promised"

"Customer service is about treating others as you would like to be treated


yourself"

"Customer service is an organization's ability to supply their customers' wants


and needs"

"Customer Service is a phrase that is used to describe the process of taking care
of our customers in a positive manner"

"Customer Service is any contact between a customer and a company, that


causes a negative or positive perception by a customer"

"Customer service is a process for providing competitive advantage and adding


benefits in order to maximize the total value to the customer"

"Customer Service is the commitment to providing value added services to


external and internal customers, including attitude knowledge, technical support
and quality of service in a timely manner"

"Customer service is a proactive attitude that can be summed up as: I care and I
can do."
That is why generally speaking, one single customer service definition does not
exist. xet's give it a shot anyway.

1:00 Before explaining how I will create training manual for cashiers, it
is first necessary to describe the job of cashier.
Training  èorking as a cashier in a big store is a demanding job. The
ca hi
r cashier enters the merchandise sold, totals the bill, receives
money, makes change, handles cards, and gives receipts. The
work is extremely repetitive and there is no margin of error in
handling money. The cashier is required to focus precisely on an
unending stream of details in a fast-moving environment with
many distractions. There is the physical strain of lifting a large
number of items over the scanner to make sure it automatically
registers the sale, with the danger of repetitive motion injuries.
A cashier is dealing directly and intimately with many people. In
spite of the best professionalism, good manners and eye contact, a
considerate and empathetic demeanor, flexibility in response, and
a diplomatic approach that seeks to please, some customers are
rude, demanding, and even threatening. èorking in the public eye
also puts a subtle pressure on the employee, because all of his or
her behavior is being constantly scrutinized by the customers, as
well as being monitored by the management.
|ºb i

A cashier in any field can expect some basic responsibilities.
u| Cashiers most often complete transactions for customers
and handle their money,
u| Make change, and render receipts.
u| Oftentimes a cashier will be responsible for counting and
documenting the money received during the day in their
till.
u| Such as helping the staff with merchandising, sales,
promotions, and shelf stocking
u| Cashiers must help customers locate merchandise.

The job of cashier is one that is often sought out because it


requires a minimal amount of training. Aside from basic courtesy
and math, Our Company can show them what they need to know
about their computer in as little as an hour and a half. The more
challenging aspects of being a cashier are often dealing with the
customer, not with the money, as the cash software does most of
the math and work for you. So, even though your typing skills
should be sharp, the amount of time you'll spend dealing with the
customer face-to-face means that your interpersonal skills should
be even sharper. Cashier is the only person whom with every
customer has to interact for a while or long so he must be very
well trained
l|-

aetermine the cashier¶s current skill level. Cashiers must be
skilled in customer service and basic math. Aside from these,
cashiers must also be punctual to ensure that their computer is
being manned, responsible to ensure that all security tags are
removed, merchandise has not been tampered with and the tender
is legal tender, ethically responsible with money and able to stand
for long periods of time and lift heavy packages, often up to 25
pounds.

l-
 

Make them aware of customer service. These include how to greet


a customer at his table/counter, how far away he should stand
from the customer (usually 5 feet), how to give the customer her
total and change and how to handle any complaints or
discrepancies in price or payment. If the customer has had to wait
in line, thank them for waiting.

l-
!

3ive instructions on how to use the software & till. This includes
how to open and close the cash box, entering the records, closing
system for the night, scan an item, enter the item's bar code if it
does not scan correctly and remove an item from the bill that has
already been rung up.
l-
"

3ive them lessons on how to handle money and tender. This


includes basic math skills, how to input how much money was
handed to you into the record, how to run a debit or credit card,
how to acknowledge discounts and how to handle price conscious
customers.
l-
#
|
3ive them lessons on how to perform other tasks a cashier may
have to undertake. These include reloading phone cards, checking
currency notes to ensure they're not counterfeits, bagging items,
scanning heavy or large items and checking personal
identifications during the sales of tobacco..
l-
$
It's an important part of any retail shop, getting customers the
right change quickly. Managers should spend major time training
entry-level employees to get the right change back to customers,
and cashiers use some common techniques to get good at cashing
out buyers and selling quickly.
u| Count out loud. Counting the change out loud helps you
keep track and also establishes between you and the
customer how much they gave you. Problem customers
may come back later, claiming you short-changed them on
a large bill. Counting out loud takes care of this problem
while helping you provide accurate change.

u| Anticipate "tricky" customers. üou may have seen these


tricksters before. Seniors are among the most enthusiastic
testers of your math skills.
|
u| Set limits on giving change. If you're swamped with
customers at any given time, you may need to tell them to
provide cash as exactly as they can. üou can also refuse to
give change for very large bills as a matter of cash flow
security. Knowing your limits and managing unusual
situations will help you become a better cash handler and
keep you from being overwhelmed.
l-
%

u| Finally, thank the customer for their business. üou should


always do this verbally. However, sometimes it may be
appropriate to exceed the customer's expectations by a nice
gesture of thanks. In many cases, it is great to give a
chocolate or some other small item as a gift to a baby with
the customer who has made a lot of shopping.

 The principal responsibility of a express manager is handling and
anag
r  overseeing all the day-to-day processes that are carried out in the
store. He manages the product inventory, salespersons, goods for
display, sales, etc. However, he doesn't manage every single
 record of a product, but roughly has a record of all products and
the people who are responsible for managing the products. Apart
from product and customer management, he also has to take care
of the interests of the members in his sales team, as they are the
ones who are in direct contact with the consumers.
The retail store manager is an individual who oversees the daily
operations of a express store. That individual is responsible for
overseeing the daily work of subordinate employees and sales
 staff ensuring that customers have a pleasant shopping experience
and completing many other duties necessary to run the store in an
effective and efficient manner.
|
è$||$|#||!#,#"##||| !||
 %'|
The position of express store manager is one that holds
vast duties and great responsibilities. èe employ express
store managers to maintain the overall quality and day-to-day
operations of the establishment. In order to learn more about
the duties and responsibilities of a express store manager, it is
important to highlight what in fact these individuals do on a daily
basis
There are many duties this individual is responsible for
completing and each duty in and of itself is vital to the smooth
operation of the store. These individuals are ones who make the
store a success and it takes a strong manager to ensure that the
perfect individuals are hired to fill sales associate positions,
clerical positions and other important job titles. In addition to
these tasks, the express store manager must see to it that each
individual is adequately trained to fill their job title and supervise
the work that they do throughout their employment at the store.
Another important duty and/or responsibility of the express
store manager deals with the money that comes into the store and
goes back out as well. The express store manager is responsible
for handling the turning in of cash at the end of each sales
associate¶s day and is required to ensure that all the money is
accounted for in the end. In addition, a express store manager is
usually responsible for paying the employees and ensuring that the
 paychecks match the hours worked by each individual.
Attendance records are needed to be kept by the express
store manager to ensure that all money which has come into the
store is accounted for and sales associates and other store
employees are paid as they should be.

Inventory is another responsibility of a express store manager.


Since there needs to be goods in stock to sell, it is imperative that
the express store manager check the inventory on a frequent basis
and make sure that orders are in when they are supposed to be. In
addition to checking express store stock and ordering goods,
the express store manager also needs to be responsible for paying
for the goods which are ordered as well as keeping track of how
much is spent on procuring the goods.

One very important duty of the express store manager relates to


customer service responsibilities. From time to time, shoppers
within the express store will ask to speak with a manager whether
it is to issue a complaint regarding their shopping experience or
provide a compliment to an employee or the store itself.
The express store manager is the higher up individual in the
express ranks who provides an ear to customers who wish to
express either their pleasure or displeasure regarding an aspect of
the store. Therefore, the express store manager must be extremely
well versed in matters of customer service.
The express store manager is also the pertinent individual at
an express store who confers with the higher up individuals on the
corporate level. Since the express store manager is on the
premises on a daily basis, they are the best individuals to let the
corporate office know how that particular store is doing. This
relates not only to sales but to employer-employee relations as
well. This individual is also the one who handles occupational
safety and employee relations within the store and relates any
issues back to the head office.

xastly, the express store manager is the person at a


particular express store who may handle advertising and
promotional displays. The express store manager is one who must
make their individual store shine when it comes to presenting
various promotions in a favorable and enticing manner. Although
they may not be responsible for drafting the advertising materials,
they should be knowledgeable in how to display the information
so that it has the maximum amount of potential possible

There are a few things which the perfect express store manager
will embody. One positive trait which makes a wonderful express
store manager is an individual who has exceptional conversational
skills. Since a main component of an express store manager¶s
daily duties is to interact with customers and employees, it is very
important that they know how to converse in such a manner which
is courteous yet effective. xooking for individuals with this trait
will help interviewers to find the best type of express
store manager.

Past experience is another important aspect which all express


store managers should have. Although past employment may not
be the only contributing factor to obtaining the best possible
candidate for the job, it still is a highly desirable one. Choosing
a express store manager who has some past managerial experience
will equate with less training that is needed and perhaps a more
established and useful manager overall.

Another trait to look for in a potential express store manager is


professionalism. A professional store manager not only will
benefit the customers who enter the store on a daily basis but will
be a good morale booster for other employees as well. A
professional express store manager does not have to be stuffy yet
must know when it is the right time for serious behavior and when
he/she can take a lighter attitude with both the customers and
employees.

A great express store manager should also have excellent


analytical skills which may benefit the store the most. Since
efficient math¶s & analytical skills is an important thing
for express store managers to have since they will be working
with money on a daily basis, it is good to have this particular
quality.

: 2se the following situations to drive the importance of
2niform:

Imagine you walk into a Store to buy a pair of clothes, and notice
SA / Cashier dressed in the dark or are just trying to make a new
fashion statement with his colorful and purple pants and a green
shirt, do you think this will take your mind off from the buying
mood or not?

Or

If you are sick or injured and find yourself in the hospital would
you feel like your life was in good hands if the nurse was dressed
in all black, supporting the latest fashion trend?

I am sure you will have double pain. üou would think twice.
Here comes the doctor, a middle-aged man, slightly over weight,
dressed in Jeans and a T-Shirt with a.O.A. (dead on arrival)
written across the front of it.

: The above scenarios will help you to create humor and also
stress on uniform.

|$& ao you what are the reasons for introducing 2niform


in organizations?

Acknowledge their responses.


 ""|$: These are some of reasons for introducing 2niform /
aress at ITC or any organizations:

Ô| 2niform/aress is important in a service industry like ours


and that compliance to a dress code is a criterion for
employee performance evaluation.
Ô| Most companies agreed that dress is a significant factor in
their companies success
Ô| üour appearance shows your customers the "real" you.
Ô| Promotes a positive company image to customers.

""|$: So give a greater service and image to our Customers


and follow simple guidelines like: (M2ST follow)

o| Store uniform is must


o| èear clean socks every day.
o| Shoes should be clean and polished
o| Simple belts
o| Black shoes & socks
o| 2niform should be Clean & ironed

4:10 o| |
i a ing o| %#|)|#!")|
r c 
o| All Customers want to see our products in an organized
manner rather than thrown here and there. If our displays
are not maintained, customers think that we are lazy and
not interested in customer service. very time you set your
display right after the customers leave your store or aisle
make other customers feel comfortable shopping in your
aisle.

o| "|$|!||$|$"|

o| Cleanliness is next to 3odliness. It is always irritating to


our Customer to see our products with dust and dirt on
them. ao you wish to touch products that are full of dust
even at home? No, we don¶t. How do you think
Customers will? This is the least a Customer expects from
our Store.
o| ""|$& It¶s not just the Cleaning and maintaining the
shelves but maintaining Personal Hygiene as well i.e.
keeping yourself clean at all times that is equally
important.
o| ""|$& Personal hygiene is the first step to good
grooming and health. Hygiene is more than just being
clean -- it is defined as practices that help people keep
healthy.
o| Practicing good personal hygiene is smart for two reasons.
First, it helps prevent people from catching and spreading
illnesses and disease, which is of key importance when it
comes to the office environment. Second, it helps people
feel good about themselves and their bodies.
o| Also remember, you are never completely well-groomed
till you have conquered personal hygiene. verything
about you must be completely clean.
|
4:30
-ck o| Although you may be a cashier or even a store manager,

ar
n there are times when you have to pitch in and help stock.
h
ing Just remember the following when stocking department
store shelves.

o| üou may not need to price the items before stocking the
shelves. Part of your job in stocking the shelves may be to
put price tags on the clothing. Alternatively, you may need
to put the price on the shelves.
o| Find where the items go in the department store. üou must
be aware of all the sections in the store
o| 3ather the boxes that have the stock you need to put on the
shelves. 2sually a handcart or shopping cart is your best
bet for getting the boxes from the storeroom to the shelves.
o| Open the boxes and check to see if price tags are on the
items. If they aren't, find the price tags for the item you are
 stocking and attach them. After pricing they start putting
the items on the shelf or hanging them on the rack.
o| Select other items to stock. Sometimes you will have items
such as books or candy that need replacing.
o| The most important part of stocking grocery shelves is
making sure you are stocking what people want to buy.
Once you have what will sell, keeping your shelves well-
stocked and organized is essential to a properly run
grocery store.
o| Bring your stock to the shelves. unning to and from the
back room to the sales floor takes up valuable time and is a
lot of work. üou can be more efficient with the stock right
there on the floor.
o| otate your stock. Place older items in the front and newer
items in the back to prevent product waste. üou have to
discard and take a loss on anything that expires; selling it
before the expiry date prevents that.
o| Face all items as you go. Facing means to make sure all
the labels face forward and that all of the products are at
the front of the shelves. If you don't have enough stock to
fill the shelves, pull them all the way to the front so
customers can easily see and access them.
o| emove overstock promptly. xcess stock on the shelves
or the sales floor makes the shop look cluttered and
unorganized. It also prevents people from finding what
they want.
o| Clean as you go. This is especially important if you're
stocking during business hours. Customers avoid messy
isles and dirty shelves. Pick up any packaging materials
and wipe up dusty shelves and spills.
