Retail Store Manager Cover Letter
Retail Store Manager Cover Letter Example 1:
I would like to express my interest in the General Manager position you have available in the Washington D.C. location. I have over 17 years of retail management and multi-unit management experience. My background is in operations and guest service in the specialty retail and grocery store industries. I have experience in big box retail/grocery in excess of $30 million and supervising more than 100 associates. Most recently, I have been the Office Manager/HR consultant for a fast growing company responsible for all aspects of the call center, scheduling, payroll, invoicing and HR issues.
I take great pride in my performance by managing with a high-energy positive approach to produce results. By working hands on alongside my staff and providing positive feedback on an ongoing basis I help in providing a positive work environment that is not only great to work in but recognized by my customers and peers by supporting a people first environment.
Customer service is very important to me and it is a large strength of mine. I have increased mystery shop scores in every store I have managed by coaching my associates and setting the expectations for our store. I received an award with Buy-N-Save as most improved customer service score in 2003. I also set up a customer service training program with Yocum Oil and facilitated the training to all managers.
With my experience in fasted pasted environments, I have the ability to think and react fast on my feet. I am dedicated to always making a company better and I enjoy ways of saving them money. I also have experience as a Concierge, in the DC market at Seminary Towers and I would often be used as a substitute at other A-class properties.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Retail Store Manager Cover Letter Example 2:
To whom it may concern,
This letter is to express my interest in your company. I consider myself to be a hard worker with integrity. In my many years of work experience, I have done retail sales, outside sales, and business to business sales. For the past 17 years I have been hands on General Manager for various restaurants, sports bar and nightclub. In my experiences working in the hospitality industry I still maintained a salesman objective.
My resume highlights my ability, knowledge and expertise in management. During my time at Alleygators and Victory Grill, I was able to use the resources and knowledge available to me to sustain a growing business. Unfortunately during the poor economy, the business closed for various reasons, which I can discuss further if you have any questions.
I am excited to get back out in the work force again and face new and challenging opportunities. Thank you in advance for your time. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I would appreciate the opportunity for your company to review my qualifications and to schedule a personal interview so we can discuss what opportunities are available to help your company succeed.
