Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I saw your ad for an assistant manager and would like to submit my resume.
For the past several years I have worked in areas of increasing responsibility at the local Albertsons, starting as a cashier and being quickly promoted based on my penchant for customer service and willingness to go above and beyond in all aspects of the positions.
I recently completed a trainee program with an eye toward management but they are requesting a transfer to a location that is inconvenient for me. Therefore, I am eager to discuss this position right here in town. I also find your store’s focus on locally sourced, organic foods to be very appealing and a good fit with my personal penchant.
In addition to understanding a wide variety of store functions, I would be an excellent fit due to my ability to work with all levels of employees. I also can assist with the administrative functions, from training to scheduling.
I have attached my resume and several references from various departments where I have worked. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
