Job Description for Floor Manager

Businesses that depend on personnel that actively assist customers are typical employers of floor managers; these businesses include retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and others. The floor manager works in the retail sales area and similar areas (usually called “the floor”) to ensure that prospective customers and paying guests are provided with customer service consistent with the goals of the business. While he or she should expect to have frequent direct interactions with customers, it is essential that floor managers effectively delegate to and direct their associates in the course of normal operations. The floor manager is usually expected to oversee training for all team employees regarding products and sales and service techniques. Floor managers also typically have hiring and scheduling responsibilities. The floor manager generally oversees the upkeep, maintenance, and attractiveness of the sales floor. They also supervise product rotations and restocks, as well as the proper placement of promotional and sales materials. Floor managers typically work in a retail or restaurant environment, with hours that often extend before and after the operating hours for the business.
