Store managers are responsible for the general management of a retail store. That could mean one store in a chain of thousands or a stand-alone retail establishment. Regardless of the size of the parent company a store manager's primary purpose is to ensure that a store's operations run smoothly. This includes: hiring, firing, scheduling and training of staff; inventory management, sourcing/ordering and forecasting; daily, weekly and/or monthly sales and operations reporting; mastering all roles necessary to keep the store running smoothly so they can fill in for anyone needing a break, calling in sick, etc. While most companies do not look for their store managers to have a specific educational background, some say they prefer candidates that have a college degree. Far more important to most companies are the skills you have acquired through many years of retail experience, your ability to lead and your attention to detail.See Job Listings Get Job Alerts
