What is a courtesy clerk and what do they do?
A courtesy clerk helps people shopping in various types of stores. They may help people bag their items after they buy something. They might also help customers bring their bags out to the car after they pay.
In addition to helping with bagging items, a courtesy clerk will also help keep the store clean. This might include jobs like sweeping floors or cleaning up spills. They might also help gather shopping carts in the parking lot. This keeps the carts organized and easy for customers to find and use.
A courtesy clerk might also help customers in other ways. If a customer needs help finding an item, the clerk might direct them to the right aisle. If items need to be restocked, then this person will help put them back on the shelves.
A courtesy clerk might also be called a cashier assistant, bagger, or cart attendant. It is their job to help customers have a good experience. Stores want customers to be happy in their stores so that they come back to buy again. A courtesy clerk helps to make this happen.
Where do courtesy clerks work?
Courtesy clerks work in a variety of types of stores. They are often seen in grocery stores. They can also be found in other types of stores where people might need help bagging items they buy.
