It was an equivalent of an adult candy store
STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Alamogordo, NM – April 13, 2016
I loved this job, oh boy did I love it. It was a retail setting with everything I loved, music, movies, games, books, and coffee. I was responsible for over 30 employees. I made the schedules, submitted pay roll, and was responsible for every customer complaint, compliment, or concern. I loved seeing all my regulars and building rapport with our customer base. When I finished my MIT training in Wenatchee, WA they shipped my family down to Alamogordo, NM. Here it was a totally different atmosphere. I do not feel like they prepared me for what was to come in this store. I didn't even get to visit before we moved here. I learned a lot about myself as a boss and an employee. I would never have asked my crew to do something I wasn't willing to do myself. I found that even if things do not work out the way you expect, when I look back now, I know in my heart I gave it all I had.
Schedule was grueling, we were on salary required to work a minimum of 45 hours a week
