      Management roles are rewarding and offer excellent progression if you have the commitment

      Pros

      Excellent career opportunities if you have the drive and commitment. Area managers have always been supportive towards me. Challenging work which requires dedication and passion, but very rewarding once you achieve your goals. My advice to new or newly promoted management; it's not easy, but stick with it, don't be afraid to ask for help and over time you will crack it! Decent salaries for store managers, especially for higher-taking shops. Good bonus scheme. Good recruitment process in place. Good training processes for new starters (even if I'm not 100% convinced that the online EDGE training is better than good old-fashioned pen and paper).

      Cons

      If you don't have the commitment and passion for the job then a management role is not for you. Don't expect a 9-5 working pattern. Realistically for a store manager or ASM you're looking at a 45-48 hour week. Sometimes things go wrong and you will have to put in extra time. Fortunately, if you enjoy the work and are driven to succeed then that isn't necessarily too much of an issue. It needs to be said that a store manager role can be very challenging, especially to those who are new to the company or inexperienced. For those aspiring to be an SM, I would recommend applying for an ASM role first to learn the ropes and then progress when you feel ready.

      Pros

      There isn’t a single pro

      Cons

      Upper management are a joke! I was sexually harassed at work, as well as a racial slur thrown at me and absolutely nothing was done about it. You are not valued at all but expected to go above and beyond.
