Pros: successful management experience
Cons: angry customers
Each day at work I was the manager, there were issues to resolve, recieving to be completed, store reorganizing to be done, money to be tracked, tills to be counted down, a store to maintain profitabe while retaining employees.
I learned how to manage for the first time in my working career. I learned how to train employees, how to budget, project future expendatures, make a schedule, do payroll, cover shifts and handle employees and customers alike in difficult situations.
I respected the management and the training I recieved. My co-workers were great and alway supportive.
The hardest part about the job was dealing with irrate customers and those who threatened my employees and myself when things did not go their way (late fees weren't removed, credit cards were charged, movies not in stock). It took time learn how to handle many different situations, however I am both a better person and a more effective communicator due to past experiences.
The best part about the job was having the management responsibility and watching the financial growth of my store.
