Area Manager (Former Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – October 29, 2018
A typical day is talking to supervisors, touching every product, ordering to fill, predicting future needs for impulse buy products in various grocery chain. The allotted time is set by corporate and is very hard to work within time frame.
I learned to be quiet, do my job, and never ask questions or for clarification.
Area Managers are not what you think. They are basically the person to do all the stores when other employees are not available. You do not approve time, set schedules, communicate with others, discipline, or hire staff for your area.
Culture is stressful. Corporate has a good plan intact but it is not enforced in the work place. Make it look good on paper and you will do just fine, but I did not feel good about myself.
There is no advancement because that is where the perks and the money is.
I enjoyed my job more when I would just do things right without getting paid.
