In large department stores - like Bloomingdales, Macy's, Barneys - what kind of jobs do they have available? Do such positions like floor managers exist and also, if two people were working in separate parts of the store (say, beauty and men's clothes), would there be 'higher' positions that they both could compete for and be promoted to?
Not sure if that made any sense, but I'd greatly appreciate some help!
At my job there are "floor managers" and "assistant managers". I am a floor manager. My general manager is requiring I take a drug test to enter me into the system as an assitant so I will be able to do more work. I will still be making a floor manager's pay. Is it illegal to do this?
Restaurant Floor Manager - What is the difference from assistant manager?
Is "Restaurant floor manager" title properly used in resume. What's below General Manager and above manager in restaurant job hierarchy.Thanks a lot
I can not stand my manager, or the lady that sits next to me, (complain complain) However, I got offered a job a lot closer to my house for a little bit more money and it would be doing stuff that I am more interested in doing/learning. I am in the Mortgage industry, young and hope to grow with the industry. So, Should I tell HR, The owner, or thre floor manager? What should I say?
I received a promotion the other day and will soon be working a desk job at work instead of being the warehouse floor manager. I drink beer steadily throughout the day, (before work, on my coffee breaks, etc.) and I would prefer the other employees to not smell it on my breath since I will be indoors working amongst other people. Does anyone have any suggestions aside from the obvious... gum, soda.....? Also don't tell me to simply not drink beer because that wouldn't be answering my question. Thank you.
I'm not sure what could have caused mold to start growing on my wall at the head of my bed, but i have discovered it tonight. Since i live in an apartment, is it the managers job to come see about and resolve this issue? Keep in mind that my mattress is on the floor, i've been saving up for bedroom suite.
I haven't really had any health problems and i have no idea how long the mold been growing. It's not a very big spot on the wall at all and i just poured some bleach on the whole little spot to kill it a little. How does mold form?
I work at H.E.B and I want to go to the bakery department. How do i ask my manager. and Who do i ask my floor manager or the department manager or the head manager.
Right, I work in an store similar to John Lewis, where we sell fashion, furniture, homeware and so on.
However, my store manager seems to be an underlying problem, to both the employees and to the overall performance of the store.
The main issue is that she treats her employees like they have no other choice but to work here, therefore they can't quit, therefore she can be as harsh and as demeaning as she wishes. She prefers discipline rather than rewarding; she sets unrealistic and sometimes impossible targets onto the floor managers, causing them to stress; she doesn't actually get involved herself in the work, but merely chivvies lower employees along while sitting back and not getting involved with sales.
A perfect example of her behaviour was when my mum used to work there part time too (before she went back to university): She had a floor manager who was very kind and fair to all her employees, and generally kept the atmosphere going well. She got on with everyone and she was also a brilliant salesperson (she taught me in her last months there). However, she did not see eye to eye with my store manager, disagreeing with her work. Without a logical, unemotional basis to fire her over, my store manager instead pressed impossible targets onto her job, while harassing the employees on our floor to help push her to quit. Eventually, our old floor manager had no choice, but to quit, after working there for 30 years. She got a small sum of money, and was kicked out onto the street.
I once complained about this store manager, as she threatened to fire me if I didn't have a more positive attitude to my sales (I'm working on fashion, which is aimed at 50+ years, which I have no passion for, but, despite requests, I haven't been moved) but now she treats me with cold, indifferent body language, and I have actually heard her gossip about me behind my back.
Lots of my colleagues have subsequently quit because of her behaviour, and the atmosphere of the store is strained and tense.
I can't talk to her constructively as I believe she will use her emotional behaviour to intimidate me, as she has done to others before, and I have enough stress at work without that.
What can I do?
I applied for a job through the Apple career site and called the Apple store asking about my application status. The specialist that helped me told me to bring my resume in and ask for the floor manager and have a walk-in interview. Should I walk in or wait for Apple to email me back?

I have checked "The Wire" Walmarts internal intranet and have yet to find anything, but other Dept Managers have told me that it exhists. With Walmarts way of lying and covering up the truth it woudl be hard to go straight to management. The one we have is the worse, zero intergrity.
So I recently quit my job at a reasturant because I was constantly bullied and picked on by the reasturant manager. I have 3 days left working there and I want to know some ways how I can make her life hell at work for the rest of my time there
I know this is a stupid question, but long story short, there was a misunderstanding and I didnt know I work today at 1. so i got a call from one of the floor managers and i explained to him what had happened and he said "dont worry its not your fault". But I dont know what to say to the STORE manager. they covered the shift by the way. anyways, what should I say? i know i should apologize obviously and tell her it will never happen again, but should i say anything else?
My apartment manager doesnt do her job, i've got a heater that needs replaced in the kitchen my kitchen cabinet fell of 6 months ago i've tried to attach it several times. but the metal pieces are just grinding away because its not lined up right, my refridgerater doesnt keep my frozen food froze, it leaks water out the back causing a mold problem underneath it. The heater in my sons room will shut off completely for hours, and that isnt good in winter in the north. My bathroom is directly over the kitchen and the toilet leaks into the kitchen light then onto the floor YUCK. Among other problems. With noise in the apartments, my hot water heater is not staying hot enough for a 20 minute shower and the temp has been turned up on it.
the list just goes on! How do I go about getting things fixed with out footing the bill?
Sorry about that, its not that i have heaters in the rooms, i have base board heating, with a thermostat in every room. I highly doubt she is trying to get rid of me, she treats all problems in these apartments like this, we all need to get together and do something about it. I had a hot water leak with my faucet I had to live with for a year and a half before she replaced it. After about 20 letters informing her it was broke beyond repair. The only reason that was replaced so "fast" was because the water is included here. I wish I could move away from this apartment and its never ending problems but i'm stuck for now. $$
I think you all are on to something with the slum lord thing...this woman who manages the apartments actually lives in one of the apartment complexes..but i bet you its perfect.
We have a bunch of different floor managers, and I have no idea who to talk to... also do I need to give like a 2 week notice? It's my first job, and the employees are rude to me and they give me the worst hours, and it's really interfering with my schoolwork.
I applied for a job at a Whole Foods. Went to a group interview which was the first one. Then was called back the next day for a second one on one interview with the female general manager. It was set for the following monday. I show up then, ironed and prepared only to find I am met with confusion and people scrambling around the office to find someone to interview me because the GM is too busy with something else. Finally, they put some floor manager on the spot and throw him in to interview me. It was a mess. He seemed confused, as was I.
GM provided a list of departments to offer me which were none of the ones I listed on the one they asked me to complete in the first interview. In fact, she put one of the ones I listed as least likely to want-Deli. I am vegan.
I called the director after the disorganized interview and she set up a THIRD interview with the GM, on a Saturday morning. This one even better. The GM had to be reminded by the front person what time it was supposed to be for. She rushed over, barely gave eye contact to me, and said, let me go get your application-which took 3 minutes as she is ordering coffee for herself on the phone. She burst in the conference room, still no eye contact, and says, "Okay, you're looking for a college job. Which I never put into that context. Leaves and again pawns off interview on someone else. But announces to him before departing, we need to set her up with a college job! The interview with him took all of 9 minutes and he said he would call me Monday. I think he saw my dejection after she left so there was little embellishment on my part.
I find a message on my phone the next day from the herbal supplement department manager stating that she is interested in talking to me about working in her department, and that a couple of the manager are interested in the store when I was told of only 2 department options, given by the GM-as what the director said was her "vision for me."
I don't understand what is going on. I am 29. I am a veteran of the Coast Guard and have finished my BA this Summer. People were happy about my application and it seems like she is trying to sabotage my opportunity there but can't find a reason to tell the other managers not to hire me

I have been involved in theatre since my sophomore year of high school. I have done lights (both setting and running the board), set construction, stage manager, floor/run crew, assistant director, and assistant prop master. I am interested in pursuing a career in technical theatre and I'm just wondering what the best way to do that is? Do I need to go to college and major in theatre? Is there a way to get a job in the field without finishing college? I'm from a small town in the midwest, do I need to move to the coast or to a bigger city? Thank you in advance for your advice!
