Ms. Marion Fishman
Store Manager
John’s Supermarket
123 Corporate Loop
Lexington, KY 10000

Dear Ms Fishman:

Thank you very much for meeting with me on Tuesday to discuss the opening for the bagger position at your store. I appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the standard of excellence you hold your employees to at John’s Supermarket. I am very excited about the possibility of joining your team.

You mentioned you need a reliable employee who works well with others. My experience as captain of my high school’s Goal Ball team has helped me to develop the attributes you are looking for in an employee. I would go the extra mile for the store and work when you need additional assistance when employees are out or during peak shopping times during the Holidays. Having grown up in our local community, I am familiar with many of the customers who shop in your store and would contribute to providing a high level of customer service with my friendly and outgoing personality.

Again, thank you for considering me for the open position on your crew. I would love to spend my afternoons after high school and weekends working and learning in your store. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions. Thank you again for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Josie Armentrout
