I recently interviewed with a company, as a store manager. it turns out that i will have to relocate, and have no problems with that. the store i am going into has not had a store manager for 11 months or so, and the the assistant store manager has been running the show. the district manager says that the assistant manager, is good, but lacks drive and leadership skills. the current assistant manager believes that he deserves the position and feels that he was "overlooked," but unfortuantely his company did not feel that way. the disctrict manager said that he has been interviewing people for this postion for the last 6 months, and hasnt found the "right person." well along came me and i got the offer.
i wanted to know if other people had some advise on how to go into this. i am not one to upset people at work, but i do have my head on straight and dont want to go in upsetting this guy even more. i am sure he'll have some aggression towards me, but i am up for the challenge. i will always believe in the fact that a business should work as a team, and i am pretty sure that this guy will not want to be a "team player" at first. any advise???
