"Retail store managers have many responsibilities including keeping increasing sales, handling displeased customers, and managing other employees. For this reason, retail store owners will be looking to hire individuals with great interpersonal skills and a proven history of increasing the profitability of retail stores. During an interview, expect to be given case studies about unsatisfied customers, underperforming employees, and other relevant scenarios."
What would you do if one of your employees came to you with a very personal problem that did not have anything to do with their job?
I would offer them an ear to vent to, be sympathetic and empathetic, and suggest that they seek assistance or advice from a professional, for example, any resources provided by the company to assist them in their life dilemma (HR Departments often offer "Help" resources), and ask them if they feel that this issue would impact their performance on the job if not taken care of. Personal problems are just that: Personal. And they MAY affect the workplace, peer relationships, etc, so I would refer them to professionals, and keep an eye out for any performance issues.
