DE CHECKERS DELIVER. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES BREAK FOR DE-TRAINED CHECKERS AND SALES PERSONNEL IN SPOKANE AREA.
JACOBS, LOWELL E.
THE SPOKANE COMMUNITY COLLEGE PROVIDES TRAINING IN ITS DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT FOR RETAIL CHECKERS AND SALES PERSONNEL. THE GROCERY TRAINING IS AS LIFELIKE AS POSSIBLE IN BOTH PHYSICAL LAYOUT AND RANGE OF OPERATIONS. THE COURSE WAS DEVELOPED WITH THE HELP OF AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE INCLUDING MANAGEMENT, LABOR, AND LOCAL DISTRIBUTORS. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE COURSE AT FIRST CONCENTRATED TOO HEAVILY ON GROCERY WORK, LIMITING THE EXPECTATIONS OF BOTH THE STUDENTS AND THE PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYERS. MORE TIME WAS THEN GIVEN TO BASIC MATHEMATICS, COMMUNICATIONS, SELF-ANALYSIS, AND JOB PROCUREMENT, AND CLASSES GREW TO INCLUDE SPEAKERS, TOURS, AND FILMS. UPON GRADUATION, CERTIFICATES OF COMPLETION AND WALLET-SIZE IDENTITY CARDS ARE NOW GIVEN TO THE STUDENTS AND HAVE BEEN FOUND TO PROVIDE QUICK ACCESS TO PERSONNEL MANAGERS. ALTHOUGH THE REGISTRANTS ARE NOT SCREENED, THEY MUST BE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES OR AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE AND ARE EXPECTED TO CONFORM TO NORMAL BUSINESS STANDARDS IN DRESS AND ATTITUDE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "AMERICAN VOCATIONAL JOURNAL," VOLUME 41, NUMBER 6, SEPTEMBER 1966. (HH)
