Retail Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Retail Manager in Las Vegas:
"It will be less creative and more stressful than you think."
Being a manager is not as creative as being a designer. Much more responsibilities and much less hands-on.

Retail Manager in Bakersfield:
"Be actively engaged."
Pay attention to everything around you at all times. Make sure to always check your assistant's work. Never think that someone will do it correctly just because they are your boss.

Retail Manager in Tacoma:
"How little room to grow there was."
Try and get the most money possible when starting out because you never know what kind of future raises you will earn.
