Responsibilities and expectations but not limited to:

Selling Skills:
  • Add on Sales – In every sale, there is an opportunity to add on to the sale.
  • Complementary products to the product being bought.

It is the responsibility of the Manager to ensure that this is happening, by being aware of, identifying what needs to be done and then ensuring it is carried out either by giving instructions to the staff or doing it yourself or with the staff.
