Most supermarkets and grocery stores have a clear offline and/or online application process, that will include a brief check on a person's background and experiences, followed by an basic or extensive interview process. It will be to your advantage if you can meet the hiring manager or owner to explain your experience and convince them you are the right person for the job. But.. how are you able to establish that milestone? Be prepared to be flexible, open-minded, and have a willingness to work wherever and whenever is needed, and make sure to write a splendid job application letter.

How to write a job application letter for a supermarket assistant job?

Please consider the following when you write an application by email. Your formal cover letter will be much longer than the one you provide as the body of an email to which you attach your resume. Although emails, in general, tend to be shorter than formal cover letters sent in hardcopy, do not forget to introduce yourself properly and provide an overview of why you believe you are a qualified candidate but do not go into too much detail yet. You don't want to overwhelm the reader.  Email cover letters can be beneficial for applications that require a resume to be submitted via email but are not explicitly required. Consider the following rules when you apply for a cashier job in a supermarket, grocery store, or retail store:

The best way to write a Cashier Cover Letter:

  • Start with a reference to how you find out about this job, refer to the website, paper, poster, and date;
  • Make a proper introduction to yourself and your personality. A formal but friendly intonation is important;
  • Quantify an example of your education and working experience;
  • Emphasize your skills, that are mentioned in the JD (Job Description) and thus related to the job;
  • Provide a key lesson learned, for example: that good manners and smiling are key to pleasing the customers when being a cashier;
  • Use definitions and wording from the original job posting in cover letter and resume.

The structure of a model letter or email:

  • The first paragraph is an short  introduction of yourself and how you learned of the opening, as well as your interest in the position/organization. This requires you to relate yourself to the organization or to the position in order to demonstrate your interest.
  • The second or middle paragraph is a profile of how your skills and experience match the qualifications as provided in the JD. In order to construct this profile, be sure to read the job description carefully to get a clear idea of what the company is looking for. This goes beyond just the “qualifications” section of a job description. Make sure to discuss your ability to do the job.  Make sure to review the company website and other materials to learn what type of person the company might value. Match your experience and education (academics, volunteer experience, etc).

Below you can download a sample cover letter for the supermarket.

Dear [Manager his function and name],

I am writing to you because I would like to apply for a job at [Job location]. I have extensive experience at assisting at a neigborhood grocery but I am looking for a new challenge to advance my career. My responsibilities before were to monitor customer online orders and to make sure of any deliveries so that there was someone that had an overview of the daily stock movement. I live very close to the supermarket so I am able to walk and I am able to get there in 10 minutes if you need someone to cover someone else’s shift quickly. I am a skilled and hard worker and determined to show my performance.

I have a flexible schedule. You will find attached my full CV with including contact details. If you have any questions or want to talk personal don’t hesitate to call. I hope that you will consider me and I am looking forward to a reply.

Yours sincerely

[Your full name]
