I'm sure that the people you are "coaching" must feel really great about your opinion of them, as my guess is that most if not all fit into one of the four categories you listed earlier.

By the way, you don't have the personality to be successful in retail.
Do i have the personality to be successful with you after midnight?????

TVSG, it appears to me that you are simply not educable and that's been apparent from day one. You scan posts and read what you want to read but only respond to those contributors who agree with you and otherwise ignore everything else as being irrelevant or else indulge in childish "repeat" repartee or likewise childish repartee along the lines of, "oh he/she really likes me," along with silly sexual innuendos because you have nothing better to say.

Feel free to report this post if you perceive it as a personal attack. I have no problem with it being removed.

I trust your new position works out well for you. Bon chance and cheers!

Managers of retail stores need to know not only a great deal about their product, but accounting and finance as well. Most will have college degrees, and depending upon their store size, position and industry, will make a reasonable wage.

Some companies are know for working managers to death. Others are quite good.

A manager of a big box store will make a very good living, well above median income for the area.
TVSG, who apparently STILL did not read the original post thoroughly, retorts:

This person is looking for retail MANAGEMENT. You want to bash regular retail jobs, fine, but that is not the topic of this thread, so start a new one or go find an old one about it.

I don't see how anyone can hate on someone who is trying to go out and make an honest living. If that is an individual working in retail, then so be it. Quit looking down upon them.

TVSG, grow up and stop acting like making a grip of money defines who they are.

My point exactly. You respond to basic headlines but not to further content. When you do espy a last post you click on there and post yet another childishly retaliatory barb. You're 33 Years old? Scary.

What (sic) childish ...? If the question is, "what's childish ..." then the answer should be apparent.

Your posts CAN be amusing for many different reasons but probably not in the way that you perceive them to be.

If for any remote reason you feel compelled to address me personally you could always send me a direct message and take the chance that you may or may not receive a response. Warning, though, I'm almost old enough to be your grandmother! Good luck in the new job.
