Retail Store Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Retail Store Manager?

Retail Store Manager in Baraboo:
Pros: I enjoy interacting with my subordinates, and they're all hard-working, enjoyable people. I like helping people improve their health, and communications and ordering are probably what I do best. When I'm directing, things go smoothly.
Cons: L feel like it's a dead end job, no room for advancement, and I'm not appreciated for the many hats I wear, and how I excel at everything I do. Also, I make a measly hourly rate, and have no health benefits, no 401k plan, no gym membership, no free coffee, no "benefits" at all.

Retail Store Manager in Atlanta:
"The tanning salon day to day."
Pros: I get to interact with other people daily. My job is rarely boring. Making commission and sales is kind of like a game for me so that part is fun.
Cons: I'm way over worked. I work between 50-60 hours most weeks. I work 14 hour days sometimes with no break and you're on your feet the whole time. I get to spend no time with my family and the company doesn't seem to care that you miss out on that time. Corporate seems to only do what's best for them. Our prices recently went down but we are punished for revenue decreasing as well. They increase profits by having salary employees increase hours so they don't increase their labor budget. I manage 2 locations as well, which isn't a problem but my assistant at my second location needs to go and my input isn't really mattered here.

Retail Store Manager in Deming:
"It's great helping people with their projects."
Pros: I enjoy being able to help people with their home project or commercial project. Being able to get them what they need helps to know that you were a part of something they were doing to make things better.
Cons: It's retail, open 7 days a week and as a manager you are always on call so typically there isn't a day off. After working for a while a schedule is set and getting the right staff in place helps and allows for time off, but the store is always busy.

Retail Store Manager in Camarillo:
"Serious stress."
Pros: Culture. The product. Company mantra. Leadership. Company tools. The industry relations we are given the opportunity to build. The owners of the brands we sell that we get to meet and converse with. Team builders. Company events.
Cons: The amount of LP we are responsible for. Minimal time off. Work all holidays. Stress levels.

Retail Store Manager in Council Bluffs:
"Working at a grocery store chain."
Pros: Good people and nice customers. Good benefits and sometimes quarterly bonus. Teach where I need to be taught and are fair.
Cons: Dont give managers enough leeway to disciple employees. Can be a lot of work but not enough help sometimes. High turmover rate.
