You're in control of your future.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – March 4, 2014
I've went though a couple of phases. It was a good job, then it got terrible, and now it's starting to get OK again.
I love being able to "own by business". We talk a lot about being a "team" and "business owners" and as a stores manager, I really feel like I am part of a team. I frequently talk to other managers in our district even through they are miles apart. I set the schedule, order inventory, supplies, coach, sell, you name it. I enjoy having that kind of total ownership.
Things are constantly changing, but that's just the wireless industry in general. We can make great money (10%+ of commission) but the report to track what you make is terrible. The corporate office seems very shady and sneaky at times.
My direct boss is fantastic. Supportive, understanding, and helps me get better through the struggles. The upper management above him doesn't seem to care about the field. There is a lot of "do it or you are fired" from the higher level management.
All and all, it is what you make it. Be a positive person, and you will have a positive experience.
ownership as a store manager. free lunches and awards from boss for hitting goals, playing with all the new electronics.
long hours. mean customers. constantly changing expectations.
