Day In The Life

Store Manager

I lead day-to-day operations at a Walmart store.


Day In The Life Of A Store Manager

My Day to Day

As a store manager, I play a lot of different roles. Sometimes I act as a therapist, sometimes I act as mom or dad, and sometimes I'll be that intense leader that my team needs. I help mitigate my associates' wants, needs, and personal development. On any given day, I'll deal with very upset or very happy customers. I also work with administrative things like profit loss statements.
