Los Angeles Retail Jobs Overview

Retail stores give consumers the opportunity to find their favorite brands, products, and bargain items. It's the pleasant experience and service offered by retail workers that keeps customers coming back. Retail workers greet customers, help them find items, and solve common customer service issues. Job seekers don't need a degree to work retail jobs, but they do need a knack for customer service and sales.

Retail workers typically work in sales, customer service, or management. As a retail worker, your duties will include greeting customers, offering assistance, making merchandise recommendations, answering customers' questions, cashing customers out and accepting payments, and providing information on sales, promotions, and bargains. You may also provide training to employees, set schedules, open stores, and manage teams.

About Working in Los Angeles, California

The Hollywood sign stands for everything glamourous and star-studded in Los Angeles. But did you know it was built in the 1920s to advertise a new neighborhood called Hollywoodland? The "land" was eventually dropped from the sign in 1949, and it became associated with nearby Paramount Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers. Today, downtown L.A. is the largest government hub outside of Washington D.C. and has the largest historical theater district in the U.S. But not all Los Angeles jobs are in show business. More than 700,000 health services and biomedical jobs and 190,000 aerospace jobs stoke L.A.'s economy.

If L.A. were a country, the city's economy would be bigger than those of Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and Sweden. Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis, engulfing five counties—Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, Orange, and San Bernardino. If you're looking for jobs in Los Angeles, you have a lot of choices for relocation. There are more than 80 neighborhoods in L.A. and 16 districts just in downtown. For those who want a slightly less hectic pace, you can also find jobs in L.A.'s beautiful suburbs, including Pasadena, West Covina, and Anaheim.

Update Your Los Angeles Retail Resume

Many retail associate positions only require an online application rather than a resume. However, resumes are often required for management or other advanced retail positions.

It should be neat, clean, and easy to read. Monster's resume samples for retail clerks and retail managers can give you an idea of how your resume should be written and formatted.

A solid cover letter can also make you more appealing to employers and boost your chances of becoming a top candidate. Not sure where to begin? No problem. We have a retail cover letter sample you can use as a reference when writing your own.
