The Future of Retail Workers
Hi my name is Adam Farris. I am a cashier at Walmart in Houston Texas. I strongly believe that customer service is what makes or breaks a business. Without good customer service we will not have businesses or businesses to give us jobs. In my 14 years plus years of experience with customer service in retail I've seen a lot evolve. But recently I've seen different things evolve especially in technology. I believe retail is undergoing a master transition with a digital disruption regarding cashier-less registers. With one cashier per one scan and go register I believe it's going to backfire one day and then companies are going to have to go back and fix it the way Sam Walton had it. Let me explain further. For example, someone can take a $5 sticker from a product place it on a $1,000 TV , scan it at the scan and go and be out the door in no time. Also things like the robots cleaning the floors or the robots stocking the shelves are taking away jobs from people. In my opinion we cannot have retail or customer service without people interacting with one another. I feel that is what really matters in the end. Thank you very much and have a nice day.

Younique Abilities dislikes using the word disabled or disability because  we don't  like to label people.  instead we should use the words unique or unique abilities or differing abilities. In the past we have used the words retarded or disabled, but in reality we are not disabled,  we are all just different people with a unique ability.  We would like the world  to understand that all of us are alike in different ways!!

The Importance of Customer Service By Adam Farris
Adam Farris here, please listen in to my podcast on the The Importance of Customer: which you can also find at the link below: thanks and have a nice day. https://adamfarris.net/blog/f/the-importance-of-customer-service  Customer service is the key to owning, operating and maintaining a business . If you don't have good customer service, you won't have jobs and you won't have businesses to give you jobs. Think about it. If each employee took 15 seconds or 30 seconds to talk to a customer and say “Hi how are you today?” “How is your day going?” “I hope you having a great day” and “Enjoy the rest of your week”, To every 5 to 10 customer's think about how that would make them feel! I know it would make me feel really great, and I am the Customer a lot of times.
