A good job if you take it seriously
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 5 January 2019
This retail job is not for everyone. I personally love it. The hours are great (matched mall hours). The skills I have learned (engraving metal, glass, plastic) have taught me more than just servicing customers. I love selling, which is a main part of the job.
I also don't need a lot of direction to work. I had a DM that wasn't involved, I did not mind. I notice other reviews need more support than myself so this probably would have been an issue for them.
My new DM is incredible. She gives ideas on how to sell better, connect with customers and staff, and how to do administration within the store properly.
I am a manager, I have hired my entire team myself. I very much enjoy my team. And when I hire a new person I have them meet my team to know if they will work with our culture.
There is always room for advancement in this company. I know people that started as a sales associate and now run in the head office.
Like I said at the beginning. This job is not for everyone. It's retail, retail can be a hard world to work in. But if you stick to a job, show your skills, enjoy everyday, then you will succeed!
Bonuses monthly and annually, macromanagement from uppers, hours are great and in control of managers
