I’d like to know. In February I got my first real job ever at Lindex, a clothing company you can read about HERE. Anyways, I’m a salesperson and throughout a workday I have all kinds of tasks to do, such as unpacking new clothes, hanging up clothing, cleaning up after messy customers (and BELIEVE ME there are TOO many of them), selling in general and keeping the store in good shape.
Now I pride myself on being great at whatever I do. So in a working position, I expect nothing less of myself. I only have a itsy bitsy problem. I’m not that good a salesperson.
“Hi, can I help you with anything?”
Unfortunately most people only look scared and politely say that they’re just looking. Am I that scary? I’m left wondering what I should do or how I should ask in order to up our sales. My knowledge within style and fashion is limited and I’m trying my best to learn whatever I can – but it just doesn’t seem to be enough.
So my question for you is this: if you were in a clothing store, potentially going to buy something – how would you like the salesperson to be?
I ask this with hopes of learning more about how to act. I’ve found that when I go shopping, I don’t really like to be watched and followed by the people working there but I like to have them near and helpful if needed.
Not to mention – I hate rude salespeople. I have big feet, unfortunately, and I still remember once when I asked this one woman for a size bigger she said the only thing bigger than that was for men (in the rudest tone I’ve heard). I sooo didn’t spend any money there.
Anyways, please help me become a better salesperson! Have a great weekend!
