    You will be fine, if you have got the job then I'm sure your employers are confident that you know what you are doing

    Remember: if in doubt, ask. At least for the first couple weeks.

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

    hehe

    dude all you need to know, is that you need to be very helpful, and dont act like a know it all, but at least act like you know something, and dont be afraid to admit that you dont know something


    and also, if you have an irate customer, just pull out the tranq and shoot em and drag em out and put them on the curb! J/K

    but realy, if you have that problem, just kindly ask them to leave if they persist

    When dealing with difficult customers, be polite, and don't ever raise your voice if they raise theirs at you. If they start shouting either continue to speak at your normal voice volume and wait until they calm down. Shouting at them will make it worse. If they get out of hand, ferch your supervisor/manager.
