I think the first person answered their own question........don't answer these questions unless you can properly discuss them on an open forum without making yourself look like a fool!!

I am so with you on this one. It is terrible that individuals, even educated ones, do not believe that spelling and proper grammar are not important.

You have to: be a strong leader who can earn the respect of his subordinates, know how to recruit and retain the right talent, and be a great motivator. (the first and last reason sound redundant but I don't believe them to be the same thing.)

Store Manager should provide excellent customer service.
Inventory control and Manpwoer Management are also the important job of a store manager.

To be honest with you.. I don't care if the person spells like a redneck or an illiterate foreigner... I care about their passion. If a person has passion and dedication I would take them over any of you. For crying out loud it is retail... No one here is running for editor of the year.. calm down and know your role.

You need PATIENCE. The patience to listen, the patience to train, the patience to achieve results and the patience to deal with the corporate world...Beside the obvious basic understanding of how business works, If you have patience and a clear vision everything else falls into place.
