Most employers consider the first three months of a new employee's employment to be an evaluation time, during which the employer and the employee decide whether or not to continue the employment arrangement. If either one decides it is not a good fit, then there is supposed to be no hard feelings about the employer firing the employee or the employee quitting. When all businesses do this, they don't hold it against the employee who is now applying for a job again. Well, they are supposed to. For your situation, you are really still just a beginner. The store manager has kept you as an employee, so now you have to spend the next several months doing the cashier work until you are eligible to be trained in another department. During this time, if another department needs an employee permanently they can consider asking the store manager to transfer you to their department for training.

Yes of course you should apply! Unless you apply, you have ZERO chance. It's management's job to decide if they are going to apply the "perfect attendance" rule in your case. Had a friend who was angry because work never gave him a raise. Finally he went to the boss and said he felt he deserved a raise and was angry that they never gave him one even after three years of good service. Boss stared at him and said "Well, you never asked for a raise. For two years I've been expecting you to come and ask for one, but you didn't. " And gave him the raise immediately.
