Operations Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Operations Manager?

Operations Manager in Charlottesville:
`"$Under appreciated, over worked."`
Pros: The flexible hours are generally a plus, if you can actually get the hours. There is a level of autonomy that I like as well.
Cons: I do the job of a hiring manager, social media manager and SEO, kitchen manager, human resources officer, front of house manager, customer service manager, catering and party manager, yet I am only paid for a shift manager. Hours are few and far between and have drastically decreased since the general manager decided (without the input of the two current managers) to promote three more managers. There is a complete lack of communication leading to a lot of stress on my part.

Operations Manager in Ashburn:
`"$After School STEAM Manager."`
Pros: Helping children to expand their knowledge of technology and to see them succeed.
Cons: My Boss Is sometimes hard to work with, too thrifty and disorganized.

Operations Manager in Albert Lea:
`"$Days that feel very rewarding and days that are so stressful."`
Pros: Making people happy about the product we make.
Cons: The stress when employees are not happy and thing are slow.

Operations Manager in Hillsboro:
`"$Very good."`
Pros: Dealing with people, seeing children happy, being able to help children in the adoption process.
Cons: Sad that there are people in this world that abuse and hurt children.

Operations Manager in Leander:
`"$Manage time, inventory, and people with time management."`
Pros: The people I work with and the experience I get for everyday life.
Cons: Sometimes, those of the younger generation have no respect.

Operations Manager in Great Falls:
`"$Many, many hats to wear!"`
Pros: I the like that it I am always solving problems. All day long it's a feeling of accomplishment. I also like that people look to you for answers and you usually have them.
Cons: The hours and that I'm always on call.

Operations Manager in Durham:
`"$Flexible hours, interesting and varied work."`
Pros: My boss is very clear and communicates his priorities well. That makes it much easier for me to delegate tasks given to me and communicate the appropriate priorities to my subordinates. It is a very small business (<5 workers), and so the culture is very casual and my hours are flexible, so long as I schedule them a week in advance.
Cons: When we go into panic mode, when I or someone else misses something and I have to scramble to pick up the pieces. Regardless of how it happened, making sure it doesn't happen again in a non-confrontational way. I also dislike doing any customer service work (especially phones), which I have to do occasionally when one of my employees is unable to come in to work that day.
