Retail Store Assistant Manager Reviews

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

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Saskatoon:
Pros: Since transferring to a larger volume store I enjoy that there's always something to be done and I like the fast pace because the days go by faster.
Cons: I don't like when it's too busy and theres only two or three girls working. Sometimes it is impossible for us to do all the required duties. It also gets hard cleaning up after customers and trying to be happy all day long.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Toronto:
"One-Stop Shop-Job."
Pros: Access to hundreds of different people in the organic retail industry, industry trends/news/interests. Doing a little bit of every single aspect of running a small store - cleaning, stocking, sales, cashiering, social media, paperwork, bookkeeping, etc.
Cons: Lack of organization and clarified job descriptions from employers. About 60+ hours per week and no end to work in sight. Like hitting a wall.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in London:
"Store Quality."
Pros: Having time outside of store hours to do floor sets.
Cons: Limitations to staff. Managers have to give certain jobs to sales associates because they have to be out front at all times unless another manger is there, even with an exceptional employee who can sell better. Lack of time to do anything useful.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Sault Ste. Marie:
"A day at Pink Chandelier."
Pros: As the assistant manager at a small boutique I have a lot of responsibility but am also able to pursue a career in my field. Upon graduating I have been able to run fashion shows, spread my creativity and help customers find new clothing. I really like the behind the scenes aspect of the job as I am able to dip my toes into a lot. I enjoy running social media, designing posters, promotions, building window displays and executing fashion/ trunk sale shows for Pink Chandelier. We have a great team and friendly environment - I have a lot of fun at work!
Cons: I feel I am taken for granted at times. I do a lot of work that isn't in my job description and am not given credit for. A lot of this work would be additional costs for my boss and I have not been given a proper benefits package or raise of any sort. I also was promised buying experience which is why I took the job to begin with and have not been given any of this experience in the last year and a half.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Laval:
Pros: I love working w.
Cons: Its like working in a high school. I've been with two different stores and sadly Dollarama is all drama.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Laval:
Pros: I like to be in charge and help the store be in the top dollar earners (sales wise) and I like the experience it gives me.
Cons: I go through alot of stress everyday and I always have alot to do which keeps me running all day and I feel like I do way to much for the salary I get.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Saskatoon:
"Am I Paid Enough?"
Pros: Drinking tea and learning about health benefits of ingredients.
Cons: The company's expectations of me against what I'm actually being paid. Added stress. The "trendy and preppy" approach to customer service which isn't my natural demeanor.
