Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Detroit, MIMarch 28, 2015
Pros: learning experience
Cons: No days off
The job duties were a bit over whelming at times. I was honestly the best working manager along side the store manager. I never had days off. I never gotten weekends off. I was there all times of the night. I barely gotten any sleep. Dealing with the customers could get a bit shaky at times due to the area a lot of individuals seem to want discounts on items I couldn't do due to my store manager's say so.

Constant pace environment requiring team work.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Moreno Valley, CAMarch 26, 2015
Duties;
Constantly moving between running the front of house, and back of house, covering breaks and/or lunches, daily/weekly/monthly calenders/to do lists. Constant email between corporate/upper management on various matters. Hiring/training of new employees or re-training current employees, scheduling/payroll management. Unloading and stocking of shipments, inventory control.

I picked up a lot of better management mannerism from working with certain people within this company, which I feel made me a stronger leader because I knew what I was talking about. I also have to say that team work is a very big thing for this company because of the high paced environment and physical requirements of the job.

Fast pace workplace
Store Manager (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Great co-workers.
Cons: Employees unwilling to work.
Typical day at work was satisfying customers. I learned how to manage employees and help keep inventory under control. The management which was at this location is no longer working for this company. My co-workers helped me to learn the do's and don'ts of this position (Store Manager). The hardest part of the job was finding the time to hold store meetings without employees having overtime. The most enjoyable part of this job was working on the computer and satisfying customers.

As a District manager You are the boss.
District Manager (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLMarch 22, 2015
Pros: company car, lunches paid by employer.
Cons: no direction by current supervisors. regional and divisonal driven by suprise, got you visits.
Each district operation was only as good as the district leader. As a district manager we were able to operate your own schedule. Manage your staff, while following company guides. Company continued to grow, so a priority was development of future personnel.
Shrink and profit control is also high on the priority list. Thirty plus years of service is reflective of the job accomplished.
