Interview Question

Store Manager/Department Manager Interview Orlando, FL

What is more important to you when merchandising: Following

  the plan-o-grams or being able to improvise? How much experience do you have improvising and what key factors determine whether or not you would stray from the plan-o-gram?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


Ideally following a plan-o-gram is the best approach. It allows for easy replenishment and delegation to others for completion. However, retail is never ideal and we always need to be able to improvise to fit the needs of the customer in each market and managing the inventory for the store to function effectively. So, I believe that you have to be able to do both equally as well in order to be on top of whatever the day/week presents with traffic, etc.
