stressful envoirnment with little personal time
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – November 7, 2018
As a manager for love's travel stops you were in charge of 3 departments. managing a fueling station, mechanical shop and multiple restaurants. managing on average 25 people per shift. I learned how to effectively manage employees, balance financial reports, cash control, sales, customer service, telecommunications, OSHA/EPA regulations, scheduling, inventory control, business to business relations and hiring. the culture was very unsatisfying. I was required to work long hours, unexpected extended shifts, and being called in on my days off. the work/home life was not balanced. The company has extremely high turnover which puts more stress and hours on the management staff. The most difficult part was maintaining operational goals without a effective staff to help you complete the goals. the only enjoyable part was the amount of money and bonus structure for the management staff.
long hours, understaffed, lack of technology, poor envoirnmental standards
