fast paced, high stress, best learning experience i could have ever gotten.
Pros: great discount, wonderful team
Cons: cant leave the store for a break when another manager isnt present, constant heavy workload, low pay
I have worked for the company for 5 and a half years. 4 and a half of which I was an associate. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. I feel that I can handle any store if I can do this job. The workload is extremely heavy all the time. Things are always changing. As much as I love this job, I do find it extremely frustrating that the company's demands are so high and they really don't give you many hours to work with, but still expect all tasks to be completed on time. As an associate I was eager to learn every aspect of my position. As an assistant manager, I often find myself stressed and overwhelmed with tasks. I have to write lists to keep track of everything that needs to be done. This job has taught me to multitask, better handle my stress, how to be a good first time manager despite the many bumps in the road. This is not a job for anyone who is unorganized, cant handle high stress levels, or a very fast paced environment.
