Operations Manager Reviews

What is it like working as an Operations Manager?
Operations Manager in New Town:
"Its Very Rewarding And Satisfying To Keep The Store Functioning."
Pros: Keeping shelves full for the needs of the community. I like to see team work and positive results at the end of the day.
Cons: When workers take jobs for granted and a unsanitary store.
Operations Manager in Nashville:
"Hard Work But Fulfilling."
Pros: Seeing the results of our work in our kids success.
Cons: Inconsistent hours, heavily emotionally draining.
Operations Manager in McLean:
"Lots Of Responsibilities And Even More Tedious Work."
Pros: I like managing others and encouraging them to do better. We are a team and a compassionate yet stern leader is key to success.
Cons: I'm a sub contractor and I receive absolutely no benefits.
Operations Manager in Mahnomen:
"Many Hats."
Pros: I manage a senior meal program and meals on wheels to senior residents (60 years older and up) in a small community. I believe in the concept of the program and have seen the benefits it provides.
Cons: I work alone and am allowed a limited amount of hours to perform many duties. I was strictly the site manager until program changes were made in our location. I now cook, answer phone, package (container, bag, seal) meals to be delivered, find volunteers, do daily and month end paperwork, bank deposits, program advocacy, prepare and send out suggested donation notices, order groceries and paper products, serve meals on site, all daily kitchen clean up, provide activities for the seniors, and more (not to mention all the incidentals that happen daily). I am expected to perform these duties by my employer and realize that they all need to be done. Yet my employer allows me 27 hours per week only. This means nothing is done well or to its fullest potential. I am stretched to the max by the end of the week, and it makes the program itself look less than mediocre and extremely flawed.
