Retail Store Assistant Manager Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Retail Store Assistant Manager?

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Sault Ste. Marie:
"A day at Pink Chandelier."
Pros: As the assistant manager at a small boutique I have a lot of responsibility but am also able to pursue a career in my field. Upon graduating I have been able to run fashion shows, spread my creativity and help customers find new clothing. I really like the behind the scenes aspect of the job as I am able to dip my toes into a lot. I enjoy running social media, designing posters, promotions, building window displays and executing fashion/ trunk sale shows for Pink Chandelier. We have a great team and friendly environment - I have a lot of fun at work!
Cons: I feel I am taken for granted at times. I do a lot of work that isn't in my job description and am not given credit for. A lot of this work would be additional costs for my boss and I have not been given a proper benefits package or raise of any sort. I also was promised buying experience which is why I took the job to begin with and have not been given any of this experience in the last year and a half.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Laval:
Pros: I love working w.
Cons: Its like working in a high school. I've been with two different stores and sadly Dollarama is all drama.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Waterloo:
"High stress level, under appreciated, demanding, under paid."
Pros: I enjoy helping people put together the perfect outfit. I love my 50% discount at all the stores. The people I work with, it has been more like a family unit.
Cons: I used to be very proud to work for this company, what it stood for, being a family oriented company. It seemed like I had so many opportunities, and had a future and goals to achieve. I started as a part time sales associate and worked my way up. Now I feel like there are no longer an opportunities. A constant set up for failure. Going there makes me feel ill and when I leave work I am depressed. Sales have dropped drastically and they make it seem like it's our fault. The product has been repetitive and boring or outrageous and awful. Prices have gone up. It's hard to believe in a company that does not believe in you. Will toss you like trash. I put in time that they do not deserve, missed important family events because my schedule was not flexible. Under paid because I worked my way up from the bottom. I have turned down other opportunities thinking this will pay off, it's a good company. I can hardly afford to live! And they want me to wear the product I cannot afford.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Laval:
Pros: I like to be in charge and help the store be in the top dollar earners (sales wise) and I like the experience it gives me.
Cons: I go through alot of stress everyday and I always have alot to do which keeps me running all day and I feel like I do way to much for the salary I get.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Saskatoon:
"Am I Paid Enough?"
Pros: Drinking tea and learning about health benefits of ingredients.
Cons: The company's expectations of me against what I'm actually being paid. Added stress. The "trendy and preppy" approach to customer service which isn't my natural demeanor.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Waterloo:
Pros: Variety, office work and hands on customer servicr, training and mentoring.
Cons: Pressure to ensure merchandising and customer service and operations is meeting company expectations.

Retail Store Assistant Manager in Smiths Falls:
"Satisfied"
Pros: I like the people that I look after-the customers and the mostly great staff members that I work with. The owner is also an open door person and is willing to listen to any concerns. Owner is generous to host a Christmas party every year for the staff. Staff interactions with quizzes, etc. to keep morale up and pot lucks though out the year.
Cons: Drama amongst staff members that is not always dealt with in a timely fashion or not at all. Some customers are extremely rude.
