Writeacher, I urgently need your help to check a few sentences on job.

1)When I go to the supermarket, first I get the trolley and then I go to the meat and fish section and finally to the check-out counter. I usually pay cash but sometimes by/with the credit card/I use the credit card. (Are all alternatives possible??
2) For my starter, I’ll have soup (not a soup) of the day and for my main course I’d like some chicken breast (a chicken breast?) with boiled potatoes and asparagus. Could I order the dessert later? Why don’t you have a home-baked (also home-made) raspberry cake?
3) What can a job involve? (Can you help me develop possible ideas?)
Working shifts, travelling abroad, answering the phone, filing documents, making photocopies, arranging meetings, developing new products, designing a new line of products, planning advertising campaigns, working overtime, skipping meals, mastering (having a good knowledge) of at least two foreign languages, being prepared to work in a team, possessing good communication skills.

    1)When I go to the supermarket, first I get the trolley and then I go to the meat and fish section and finally to the check-out counter. I usually pay cash, but sometimes I use a credit card. (Yes the alternatives are possible, but awkward. Also, I underlined the part that doesn't make sense to me -- you take the trolley to get to the market? Or you take the trolley [in the store??] to get to the fish and meat section? It's not clear.)

    2) For my starter, I’ll have the soup of the day, and for my main course I’d like a grilled chicken breast with boiled potatoes and asparagus. Could I order the dessert later? Why don’t you have a home-baked (also home-made) raspberry cake?

    3) What can a job involve? (Can you help me develop possible ideas?)
    Working shifts, travelling abroad, answering the phone, filing documents, making photocopies, arranging meetings, developing new products, designing a new line of products, planning advertising campaigns, working overtime, skipping meals, mastering at least two foreign languages, being prepared to work on a team, possessing good communication skills.

    Also - having bookkeeping/accounting skills, having knowledge of and proficiency in the use of Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint (insert whatever program names you wish; I just used the most common ones among Microsoft Office's programs.)
