Challenging role to take on
Shop Manager (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 15, 2016
The typical work day for a Shop Manager consists of pulling sales reports from the previous day,week and month to forward in the daily recap due to the DM. Once the racal is don you have to attend to your shop making sure that all new merchandise is out and properly displayed, this means spending some time off the floor retrieving new or old merchandise from the stockroom. The challenges I faced was the lack of support with back of house procedures from my retail partners as well as a staff which were unmotivated.
On the plus side, I was able to gain more knowledge into the cooperate side of things, writing reports and hosting proper product knowledge seminars. My direct manager was one of the nicest people I have ever met and used her knowledge to promote and lead me down a path of success.
