The pay is good if you are willing to sell your soul
I had dozens of store and grocery managers that I had to make happy. Yet if only one called in and complained on service, even if performed by the TSR or part timers under me, I would get written up. Yes, even on PERSONAL DAYS I was written up due to a complaint of bad service ON MY DAY OFF. SEriously, the guy under me didn't even get in trouble for not doing his job. I was written up and put on a PIP, during the time in which I I hit 106% sales during a six month period. They expect too much and NEVER did I have a full time TSR working under me in the 2 and half years as RSR. I was also promised that I would only merchandise 20% of the time. It ended up being more like 95% of the time, while I went after and cleaned up after part timers all week. I have found that across the board, this company is greedy and cares nothing for its employees. I have worked under 4 different DMs in and its not all their fault- the company stressed me day and night. It was like a horrible nightmare to work here. I would rather work any hours with any pay doing anything else than live this horror of Kellogg's one more day. I quit after a total of 6 years. Sad, I wanted this to be my life long career, but I was too MISERABLE. Even on my time off, fear of being fired or fussed at lingers. They expect to much and over look the good things you do. Greed and expectations that are too high and there is no home life balance, no matter how many hours I put in. They wouldn't even leave me alone during my vacation. My emails and texts seem to NEVER stop.
Advice to Management
Appreciate the good your employees do. Encourage them and quit putting unrealistic expectations on them. I was a great salesman but rarely got to sale as I was too busy trying to make my stores look good after all the part time help left. Let RSRs write up the TSR and part time. Otherwise, they are not accountable for their own work.
