店員てんいん” means “Store clerk or Sales clerk” and which has been used as the meaning of “a person who works in a shop/store such as restaurants, variety stores, bookstores, coffee shops, etc.” The basic way to use it “店員てんいんは___です(A clerk is ____)”, “___の店員てんいん (A clerk of ___)”, etc. For instance “店員てんいんはあのひとです(A clerk is that guy.)”, 本屋ほんや店員てんいんはあのひとです(A clerk of the bookstore is that guy.)”, etc. The tip for using “店員てんいん” is that “みせ” of “店員てんいん” means “shop/store” so you would call a person “店員てんいん” who is working “in a SHOP/STORE”. All of them are called “店員てんいん“, even they are “会社員かいしゃいん“. It is the word everybody uses as both casual and formal. Although “店員てんいんさん” sounds pretty childish for guys, some girls use it.
