It is never possible to know exactly what a potential employer will think about you when he reads your cover letter for gas station assistant manager position. What can be done is to make sure that whatever he thinks, isn’t negative. And this is only possible if your cover letter is written well. What does a well-written cover letter look like? This may also be difficult to answer. What is well-written for one person may not come across the same to another. Writing a cover letter is usually a gamble but some things can be done to make sure that what you write, is perceived as positive.
Firstly, it is very important to understand the job description that the employer has provided to you. Everything depends on this. If you know what you are applying for, there is a great chance that you will write a cover letter accordingly. What is also important is the language that you use. While some employers do not really mind humor, it is best to stick to a professional tone – something that cannot backfire. Once you have both these in order, you may not need to worry too much about how you are judged by a prospective employer.

Dear Mr. Abraham:
As a driven individual who started his career as gas station attendant 4 years ago, I am proud to say that I have successfully managed to obtain an Assistant Manager position at one of the largest gas stations in Arlington.
From managing local gas stations to handling the high demands of ones on freeways, I am highly experienced in ensuring that the logistics of both are managed in a proper way. Let me highlight just some of the many qualifications that I possess which make me an excellent contender to be considered as an assistant manager at Admiral Petroleum Company:
• Over 4 years of experience in successfully running the operations of a busy gas station.
• Highly experienced in ensuring provision of high quality service to customers to ensure repeat business opportunities.
• Unmatched ability to juggle the responsibilities of the gas station and convenience store at one time, while remaining current with issues of both.
• Qualified to create and maintain effective liaison with gas suppliers to ensure timely delivery of supply.
You will not only find me a great support to the gas station manager, but will also be surprised to discover that I am very talented in managing HR related services and customer support. To elaborate on this, I would like to meet with you at your earliest convenience. I will call you on October 20 to set up a meeting date and time. Until then, you may reach me at (000) 965-1254 if any further information is required.
