What Is the Retail Salesperson?

The most important quality the sales assistant possesses is the ability to turn shopping for customers into a pleasant, enjoyable experience. No matter where you work – in a meat section of a grocery store, in a lingerie department of a big mall, or on the shop floor of a car dealership – you need to provide such a good service to clients that they want to come back for more goods. Polished manners, politeness, and patience are the keys to creating agreeable connections with your clients. People are different, and infrequently you may come across a disgruntled customer who will vent dissatisfaction on you. It is crucial for your success as a retail salesperson to treat such a client courteously and not to get angry when provoked.

Knowing how to sell well is another indispensable trait the salesperson must have. You need to promote items in your store cleverly and enthusiastically and, in so doing, move its business forward by bringing handsome profits from sales. Selling well entails knowing the goods in your store like a palm of your hand. Only if you are familiar with the full arsenal of goods in your shop and know what distinguishes your goods from items sold by other companies will you convince your customers to make a purchase and will thus contribute to the blossoming of your company’s business.

Yet another quality that each successful sales assistant possesses is organizational acumen. You need to maintain your store fully stocked: whenever you sell an item, order it from the head office so that nothing is missing from the collection. The salesperson is also required to keep a showroom and all storage rooms clean and in good order. Your store should always look attractive and eye-catching to customers to make them stop by and make a purchase.

What Qualifications Should the Retail Salesperson Have?       

There is no degree that you are required to complete to be hired as a sales assistant. Experience in retail is more valuable in this profession than a degree. If you have worked on the shop floor or in a show room before, you will fulfil your duties better than anyone with education but without experience as a salesperson.

You also need to understand selling tactics and know when to advertise an item to customers, hoping that they will buy it, and when to leave them to make their own decision. Enjoying talking to people is a good trait to have, too. If you are not a pleasant conversationalist, people will probably not be inclined to buy from you. It will also help you to deliver a good service, if you love what you sell. Your passion about your products will infuse enthusiasm into customers, making them look with favor at offered goods.

Because one of your tasks in any store will be to do paperwork and even calculate weekly, monthly, and yearly profits of your company, you need to have good numerical skills. You need to know how to make basic arithmetic calculations such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Sometimes, you will need write reports or fill in orders. To do this successfully, you also need to have good proficiency in English. Depending on what goods you sell, you may also need to possess strong abstract reasoning skills. To sharpen your logic, improve your knowledge of grammar, and increase the precision of your calculations, you do not need to receive a degree. Sufficient is to buy JobTestPrep’s comprehensive practice materials and go through them a few times before you come to your pre-employment assessment. Our exclusive PrepPack™ contains all required resources to prepare you for an interesting career in retail.

What Does JobTestPrep Offer?

We have compiled a comprehensive PrepPack™ containing all needed materials that will bring you to a successful completion of your pre-employment assessment. The test simulations we have put into our PrepPack™ are the following:

The Numerical Reasoning Test – This test measures how well you understand and analyse the information presented in statistical tables, graphs, and diagrams. You will need to study a table or diagram first and then to answer multiple-choice questions about the date contained in them. There is only one correct answer among several wrong alternatives.

The Verbal Reasoning Test – This test evaluates how well you comprehend written information. You will be given a passage from a test, which you will need to scan briefly. Accompanying it are statements whose truth value you will need to estimate. There are true and false statements. There are also statements whose truth-value is impossible to estimate dur to the insufficiency of the information given in the text.

The Abstract Reasoning Test – This test measures your lateral thinking skills. In other words, it estimates how well you identify patterns, trends, or logical rules in given data. It also evaluates whether you can absorb this information and apply it to solve problems.  

The Personality Test – This test estimates applicants’ ability or talent to perform task without prior knowledge or training. Employers also use this test to identify most prominent traits in applicants’ personalities and see if they will be a good fit for their company.  

The Sales Assistant’s Recruitment Process

After you have applied for your position, you will be contacted by a Human Resources manager. Your phone interview will center around your working experience in retail. If your first interview goes well, you may be asked to take an online test. What test you will be administered depends on the company and the position for which you applied. Success on your test guarantees that you will be invited for an in-person interview in the company’s store. During the interview, expect competency-based and situational questions. If the company’s managers are impressed by your personality and your answers, they will offer you the job.

Being a salesperson is an interesting occupation that requires from you an ability to communicate with customers politely and patiently. It also requires a passion for selling. JobTestPrep can help you become employed in the role of the sales assistant by offering you simulations of the tests that you may meet on your assessment. We also have interview materials that will help you stand out among your competitors. Purchase our practice materials and begin to deliver an unparalleled service to your clients.
