Operations Manager Reviews

What is it like working as an Operations Manager?

Operations Manager in Iowa City:
"Very Stressful, work flexibility, bad office conditions,"
Pros: Working with people and finding a better way to do work processes.
Cons: No upper management support, no appreciation.

Operations Manager in Fairfield:
"Work life."
Pros: Managing challenges with protocol or systems. I enjoy fixing and creating newer efficient protocols that improve service and/or productivity.
Cons: The turnover in employees and the challenges of staffing. I also don't like the immature behavior of some employees that impede the team to work in a professional, efficient manner. The manager is not engaged and is reactive to issues rather than proactive. The hours can be an impact on home life and days off are never really days off without an issue being called to you at all hours. While some calls are legit, some are not and require simple common sense or remembering their training.

Operations Manager in Coshocton:
Pros: I enjoy working with the public. I like the daily challenges that come with my job. I also enjoy the people I work with.

Operations Manager in San Antonio:
"Hard work/Little reward."
Pros: I enjoy the people I work with and the laid back environment of this particular company. I also enjoy the knowledge I have gained in my current position. I feel that my contractors know that I have their best interest at heart and that I will go above and beyond for each one of them and that gives a feeling of satisfaction. I also enjoy being a leader and managing people.
Cons: I do not believe tat I get paid enough for the work I do. I feel as though I am underappreciated and overworked. I am also in a position where I can affect either negatively or positively someone's livelihood and that becomes very stressful.

Operations Manager in Yakima:
"Experience."
Pros: What I like most about my job and current position is merchandising. Setting out the new floor plans and new product is great, making the store look great. Also teaching the client about new skincare and makeup techniques and selecting the best products for them. I also enjoy working with my co-workers as everyone gets along pretty well and is happy to be working there.
Cons: Sometimes I don't like the retail hours and working holidays.
