Resume--wrong section--but I need help?!?
I used to work at 1800flowers.com. I'm trying to describe my job and it just doesn't flow. This is the only job I can't seem to write about and make sense with... I know it's horrible but any help would be greatly appreciated!! Here's what I got: "There were many aspects of this job. I would answer phones to take, place, and advise on orders coming in using computer software. We also used sales pitches to get customers to buy more items. I would also receive customer complaints and fix the problem offering an array of services. I learned how to calm very irate customers. I also went in to the computer system to work on CSIs [customer service investigations] to resolve unfinished customer related issues. We would work hand and hand with flower companies using the Teleflora system and help with filling orders as well as the USPS to fill by mail orders." Thanks!!

You can explain the relevant details of your experience in a cover letter and/or in the interview... More

For the last part you can say "In charge of logistics with second-party suppliers using Teleflora and standard procedures in USPS mail orders"
