Why do you assume many of us will be getting fired? Or do you mean laid off due to a decrease in business as they put it? Haven't you already left walgreens or are you asking for help with your own personal resume?

Hey, not bad. I don't anticipate being let go anytime soon but I'll do a copy and paste of what you've written for future reference with my resume. Thanks.

you mis-spelled "insure". It's ensure.

We would be smart to get out while we still can. After all the cuts and restructuring they are trying to do, its going to be just as worse if not more worse. I've been trying to leave so I can walk out the sliding door on my last day with a one finger salute.

Actually, insure and ensure were originally synonyms and still are today. They both stem from the Anglo-French ensurer (which came from the Old French assurer, "to assure"). Over the years, people have tended to reserve "insure" for insurance-related issues and in instances where steps are taken to guarantee an outcome. From what the original poster is describing, it sounds like "insure" is acceptable.

The real travesty is that I doubt few HR folks would notice either way. I have a couple of friends out of work, and the replies they get back from HR departments are riddled with spelling errors and grammatical mistakes.

BTW, "misspelled" is one word, no hyphen.

You put a huge emphasis on the robotics of the job rather than the people aspect.

In my opinion, employers want to know how you interact with other people... Example, more about training and supervising employees... more about dealing with customer service and giving excellent customer service...

What about any accomplishments? Photo SWIS? Cos SWIS? Food SWIS? Those are all positions in addition to being an Assistant. At this point, pretty much every Assistant should have or should be one of those three by now.

Show the difference you made in your store (new ideas, increased profit, improved displays?)... it shows you're an assest rather than just a body to fill up a spot :P

I am in accounting now, so the robotics is important.. but you are right, I am may want to show how I improved the operations of the store or increase revenue somehow.

If you are applying to be an assistant manager at Walgreens beware!!!! You will close the store 3-4 times a week and be prepared to work every weekend. You will be more of a glorified cashier and security guard. If one person calls out your whole night is ruined. The best part is you cannot go over 40 hours a week so the first four days of the week that you work try to stay an extra 30 min a day so you can leave early on your last day.
