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.
