Retail Store Assistant Manager in Cape Town:
Pros: Nothing
Cons: This is a difficult question. For starters staff are not treated with respect and are sworn at and disrespected. This is not just where i am working it almost every person is bringing it up as an issue
January 2014
"Am I Paid Enough?"
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
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.
March 2014
"Low Wages For Managers."
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: I work with a great team and my general manager makes sure we have a work/life balance. I currently have 5 weeks of paid vacation each year and will top out at 6 weeks this September.
Cons: The low wages for managers. After almost ten years of service with the company, seven of those years I have been in some form of manager, I do not even bring home 20K a year. It is hard to give a job your all when you feel as under appreciated as I do.

Make sure it is what you want to do. Be prepared for uncooperative customers. Learn your product.
April 2014

May 2014
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Easy promotions.
Cons: Hours are based on sales. Employees hours can be cut mid week without notice. However, store expects you to be available when needed. Conflicts with having additional jobs. No consistency nor stability.
