Sales and Credit Driven Environment very competitive with other stores in the district
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Huron, SD – May 4, 2017
I'd arrive to work and the first thing I'd do is call the customers who were past due on their payments, then go through the store and make sure it was showroom ready, check all e-mails, verify all deliveries and service calls for the day, conduct a brief morning meeting to ensure my team was on the same page, finally I'd open the doors and implement whatever sales plan/goals were agreed upon for that given week. I learned how to balance employees as well as wear many hats and multi-task every minute of the work day. The culture of the workplace was fun but balancing the credit and sales portion of the job made it difficult to achieve bonuses. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the smiles on many customers' faces after they receive an item that they wouldn't be able to afford at other retailers.
Discounts on items that we sold
working weekends, non-consecutive days off, if a certain percentage of sales and credit wasn't met bonuses weren't given
