Could be worse, but still not great
Store Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 17, 2018
This job is fun at first, but it will literally take everything from you- your free time, your energy, your spirit, just everything. As a teenager or young adult, it's very fun because you are working with people your age, but your employees are teenagers and they (most of the time) don't have a good work ethic. The benefits are pretty amazing, but you have to be ASM or SM to receive them. For someone running a store/business, the pay is way too low for the amount of stress you go through. Everything falls on you. Someone calls out? You have to cover or work a double. Day was busy and couldn't do something that has a deadline? Come in on your day off to finish. A lot of the pressure has to do with management, like the RM wants everything done immediately and has completely unrealistic expectations. Once you reach SM, the next level is DM, which is incredibly hard to get, or go into corporate, which you have to move to Texas for. If you have other job options, I'd go with them instead.
Low pay, no extra payroll, micro managing
