Challenge at every corner but worth all the turns.
Manager (Current Employee) – Quezon City – 3 March, 2016
Being employed for 20 years, I would say that I learned from my work everything I know. The opportunities are vast if you really desire to advance. Management is always supportive and constantly looks for goal oriented individuals and nurture their career. The most difficult part of the job.. If you are in it between 1 to 2 years, is how to manage the physical requirements of the job. Standing for almost 9 hours straight is no easy feat, mastering the rigors of an entire shift takes years, so this may be a defining year. If you already passed the 2 year period and is still in it going 5 years, I would say that the most challenging part is making your niche, showing that you are not just a manager who manages one's shift but also a person who is valuable and is able to contribute to the company.
When I see customers, regular and new ones, come to my store with their tired faces and leave my store with a more cheerful aura, this is the most rewarding part of the job. When I see crew members graduate and come back to my store with stories of new careers, definitely a high for me.
