Co workers and customers are great.
Store managers try but everyone is belittled and berated by district managers and up. Imagine being threatened that the regional maanger will 'disipline' your store if your number of pro cards doesn't go up. And how? By visiting your store and telling how much you all suck. Yup every day.

Understand the needs of your employees, You want to build re pore with them as you would taking the time with customers. Seeing them on a even playing field whether you are in management or just got hired because more than likely you were in the same position before coming into management role. The biggest one is learning how they learn. Not everyone learns the same way. The most important of all treat everyone as if they are going to be managers as much as you can. They too want to know they are making an impact as well. Give credit where credit is do. Understanding and communicating is the biggest key role in any position. When I worked there as an SM, before I made the schedule I made sure to ask everyone which days they wanted off because I wanted them to know I was taking into consideration of their own personal life as well. I worked with them with kids, school and such. There are times where I couldn't give leeway but I made sure they understood why and the reasoning and if they had any questions in regards to why certain things need to be done a certain way, there was always an explanation. You are a mentor, The success of you store as well as the success of management is based on the success-fullness of your staff.

Honestly if a job was only about the camadarie with fellow employees than I would never leave because, it was incredibly fun to be around fellow gamers whether they were customers or fellow employees. Unfortunately, the pay is very low and there is only 4 hours to be had if you lucky so I would need to leave in order to make a living in a better opportunity.
