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

March 2015
"I would not work for Rue21."
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Had a fun staff of employees.
Cons: Awful upper management, no communication or direction, really disrespected and torn down for everything.
March 2015
"Store Quality."
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Having time outside of store hours to do floor sets.
Cons: Limitations to staff. Managers have to give certain jobs to sales associates because they have to be out front at all times unless another manger is there, even with an exceptional employee who can sell better. Lack of time to do anything useful.
March 2015
"One-Stop Shop-Job."
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Access to hundreds of different people in the organic retail industry, industry trends/news/interests. Doing a little bit of every single aspect of running a small store - cleaning, stocking, sales, cashiering, social media, paperwork, bookkeeping, etc.
Cons: Lack of organization and clarified job descriptions from employers. About 60+ hours per week and no end to work in sight. Like hitting a wall.
March 2015
"Fire fighting."
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Growing and watching my employees succeed. Genuinely helping customers.
Cons: Corporate politics and squeezing blood from Stones.
March 2015
"Career Path."
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Ability to manage and lead people will be the key to your success.
April 2015
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: Interactions with customers, variety of responsibilities, flexible schedule.
Cons: Working holidays, not able to take vacation time during holiday season, very few weekends off.
April 2015
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
Pros: I love the culture its not all about the sales its about the customer. Which it is important because without sales we wouldn't have jobs but without customers we would have nothing.
Cons: Not really many down falls just the regular problems of retail that if your not in a higher position your probably not going to get the pay you want.
