Retail Store Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Retail Store Manager?

Retail Store Manager in Brisbane:
"Flexible but stressful with little room to move."
Pros: Overall the environment is good - I am not micromanaged by the GM and am able to arrange my store how I see fit (including visual displays) and retail has always been a field I enjoy. And that is it. That's literally the only good thing.
Cons: Shoddy equipment (ie; ancient register, broken fax, temperamental phone, no hot water, constantly shorting overhead lights), terrible on-site maintenance staff, ridiculously tight budgets, difficulty coordinating pick-ups from our factory/kitchen store, the inability to choose which suppliers we go through, being constantly understaffed (business owner will not allow hiring of more assistants), dealing with staff who can't think for themselves or take initiative (and the ones who do take initiative do so in ways that cause horrible messes that I need to untangle)... Also customers. Angry customers who don't understand that international orders sometimes take time.

Retail Store Manager in Brisbane:
"Career Progression."
Pros: Opportunity to grow and develop, buying and designing of product. Marketing and brand development.
Cons: Slower sales and general quietness of the business and staffing issues.

Retail Store Manager in Melbourne:
"Retail store manager."
Pros: The power to control the sale outcomes of the store and the way the store looks.
Cons: Responsibility for over estimated and un realistic goles.

Retail Store Manager in Melbourne:
"Great responsibility comes with great expectation."
Pros: I love the challenge of it all. I love working with my team... Setting goals and smashing them. I love motivating and encouraging team members and celebrating our success. I am driven and motivated and I love the feeling of achieving success from hard work and planning.
Cons: People not on the same page. Negative people and team members who lack drive and organisation.

Retail Store Manager in Sydney:
Pros: Recruiting, mentoring, having some autonomy, power and control.
Cons: Constant people pleasing, low salary, standing for hours, body aches, customers calling/turning up before trade and especially when closing, energy draining, fueling consumerism, filling the earth with more questionably and poorly manufactured overpriced useless inevitable landfill, soulless work.
