Dear Mr. Sorenson:

With this cover letter, I am applying for the job you posted on JobBankUSA.com for a competent and experienced first-line supervisor in the grocery business. I am familiar with the duties since I held such a position for five years with the Belmont Grocery chain in Littleton, USA.

I am comfortable with leadership and really like to guide and encourage those workers I would be supervising. I realize that keeping worker morale high is as important as requiring the work to be done on time and in good order, and that is what you're probably looking for in the persons you hire as front line supervisors.

May I drop by your office next week any morning you choose between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. to discuss this position further? I look forward to meeting you. Please call 222-222-2222 to confirm and I'll be there. I appreciate your reading and considering my cover letter.
