Retail Store Manager in Grand Rapids:
Pros: Most of our customers are come in because they love our products. Who doesn't like to be adored :) We are a happy place and for the most part work with young adults who enjoy their jobs, and enjoy being in each others company. When part of you job is to be happy and have fun, it's hard to not want to go into work.
Cons: Dealing with employee's that range from 18-55, most of our employee's are working part time while attending school, or this is a second job to get them through a rough patch in their life. So turn around is the most difficult part. Just when you think that you are staffed properly at one store, the other store goes through a change in staff, so we always feel like we are training. Cost of training is high.

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.
