General / Operations Manager Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
General / Operations Manager in Rochester:
"Don't Work For A Small Business Owner."
Do not work for a small business owner unless they really seem to have a strong plan and vision in place for their company.
General / Operations Manager in Frankfort:
"You Must Be Perfect."
In school, 90% correct is typically an "A". An "A" maxes out your GPA points, and that is what is shown on your transcript. In school, if you get an A then you look perfect. You look like you achieved everything you could possibly expect to achieve. In the workplace, A might as well stand for "amateur". Because, if you do a report or project and have a single number wrong in a presentation and it's caught then the rest of your entire project will come into question and everyone will instantly become almost paralyzed with uncertainty. So, your best case thing to do in school, or in work, is to get used to checking your work, having colleagues check your work and accept and understand that your goal should not be 90% work but work that you could bet your job and your life and your family's life that it is 100% correct. Might not be possible, but if 99% of the time you are 100% correct, that will be a start.
General / Operations Manager in Karnes city tx:
"Follow up!!"
Always make sure to follow up with what you set your employees to do. That way you ensure that the task you ask them to do is completed. Always give them a time frame to do it in and so that it gives them a sense of urgency.
General / Operations Manager in Attleboro Falls:
"I Wish I knew That A Degree Is Important"
Evaluate and listen to the employee who have been with the company 10 plus years. They can help you set a plan in motion for improvement.
General / Operations Manager in Medford:
"Find A Better Way To Finance My Interest In The Company."
Do not get into a situation where the business idea is yours and you end up being just an employee. Take some time, if you have it, and find the best way to start your own business without the use of 2 partners that own a controlling interest in your business.
