I learned how i could work faster yet still be productive.
There were times when one person was scheduled to work and would get a rush of customers that we were unable to complete some tasks, when this happened, I knew that what was most important was to get authorizations for the next mornings appointments, and call customers who had paid extra to express their orders. Other tasks and clients who were quoted a 2 week delivery time could wait until the following day.
I prioritized by doing the things that needed to be done for the opener. Making sure the store is stocked and the registers cashed out for the night are the most important things, because this prepares the store for opening.
Started by establishing the tasks with a high priority.
I prioritized the assigned tasks from the order of most important to least important and by when the assigned task were due.
I started with the tasks that are more challenging so I would get them finished first.
I made a list of the things that were a top priority and did those first. Then made my way down the list. If I was unable to finish the tasks I was assigned I would either stay late to finish them or speak with my supervisor who assigned them to see how they would like me to more forward.
I did the assignments that were most important first.
I did the most important tasks first then continued with what was less inportant later.
Start with the most urgent matter, deal with customers as they arrive, ask for help.
