A staff member with no previous experience of placing orders presents a report on her first experience of placing orders

Before I began my part-time job, I thought a full-time employee or the store manager was in charge of placing orders. Now I am able to operate the cash register and do ordinary tasks, but I'm anxious about whether an inexperienced part-time worker like me can really handle the task of placing orders.
Where should I start?

    POINT ① Always keeping all products displayed neatly and fully stocked

    At a convenience store, shelves are always filled with products which are displayed neatly. I've heard that the purpose of placing orders is to always maintain such a well-organized condition. To correctly place orders, what should we focus on?

    In placing orders, we take into account both the weather and any information about the neighbourhood. We entrust our staff members with the task of creating an attractive selling space and ask them to take on the challenge of placing orders. When I place orders aggressively, it feels like my heart is pounding, but if the product sells well just like I thought, I can't help but pump my fist in triumph! This may be the most motivating aspect of the work at 7-Eleven.

  • Key point 2.Do you need to place orders for all products?|  Information on part-time jobs at 7-Eleven

    POINT ② Do you need to place orders for all products?

    I have an image that a convenience store sells a really wide variety of products, and frankly, I'm worried about whether I'll be able to place orders for all of these products.
    Could you please tell me if there is something I should pay attention to when placing orders?

  • From a person in charge of training: Please don’t worry, because different workers are assigned to respective areas they are good in, such as the person in charge of desserts!|  Information on part-time jobs at 7-Eleven

    For ordering, rather than one person being in charge of all the products, we allocate the work to staff members by categories. For example, Ms. A is in charge of ordering dessert products. As a result, each staff member can become an expert on the category they are in charge of. There is also an additional benefit of being able to learn about popular and new products a little ahead of other people.
