Train, train and retrain employees.
Training employees isn’t something top quartile c-stores do only once. Training employees must be an ongoing process. Don’t be shy about retraining employees in areas where they are deficient. Re-certify their training when it comes to sales of age-restricted products like alcohol and tobacco. What’s more, followup with employees when they do something well or when they could have handled something differently to let the know you’re watching.
