Hobby Center Operator

Hobby Center Operator - Black Shirt (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsThe position is challenging, but the work you put into the job is returned by what you get out of the position. There are operators that fail but they just don't understand the amount of focus, hard work and good attitude it takes to be successful. There is currently around 90 stores. There are 4 regional managers and 5-6 trainer positions. That requires you to be one of the best to move into those roles. But the company will take care of you if you put the business first.

This position is highly rewarding for those with the courage and stamina to stay the course. Your salary is base in merit. It goes up every year as long as your growing your store. If you grow your store you get a percentage of that as a bonus. You set your own goals and the company will hold you accountable to those goals. Also the company's benefits are one of the best I have ever had.

It's there best way to run your own business without having to fund it yourself.

ConsIt can be hard to see good people fail. But when your the only employee in your store their is no one to blame but yourself.

    Could be a rewarding job if upper management didn't change every year and a half.

    Somewhere between a dream job and fever induced night terrors

    Hobby Center Operator (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    I worked at Games Workshop

    Pros: Truly INCREDIBLE employee discount You get to sell games for a living and play them in your spare time Awesome community of customers that are incredibly loyal… Cons: The discount invariably means that you spend large chunks of your salary on the games Stores are obsessively and very strictly numbers driven You must always be… Advice to Senior Management: Realize that the US is very different from the UK market. Become more open and stop making employees be the last to get info that… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
