What is it like working as a Brand Manager?
Brand Manager in Butler:
"See new product first, stressful,"
Pros: I like helping people find new scents and try new things. I also like seeing the tables come to life as I have my team put them together. Its so rewarding to see a table once its all finished.
Cons: The company tends to change floorset nights left and right. My store manager tries to schedule people, but they end up calling off all the time, that I'm usually short staffed and after to stay after to get everything finished. I also try to keep everyone in the loop on how things are supposed to be, but the assistant manager doesn't listen (who is above me), so the other employees don't really care to listen to me.
Brand Manager in Indianapolis:
"Stressful, But Great Strides."
Pros: That my projects and expectations of myself change frequently. The culture is open and unstuffy, I feel like I belong.
Cons: Relying on clients to give us materials, its hard to balance many brands at once especially when communication is limited.
