What Teens Ought To Know About Cell Phones at Work
Statistics on cell phone usage indicate that about 1/3 of all teens or pre-teens in the United States carry a cell phone. Also, about 25% of all cell phone revenues come from this age group.
We didn't need to see those statistics to know cell phone use is prevalent among teens. Working teens should brush up on cell phone work etiquette as the summer job season approaches.
1. Don't answer your phone every time it rings. Send it to voicemail.
2. Don't be on your phone while you are ringing up a customer at the cash register.
3. Don't put your phone on speaker, so that you can hear your friend while you continue to work.
4. Stop texting when a customer, coworker or your boss is speaking with you.
5. Your cell phone ringer should not be louder or more disruptive than the company phone ringer.
