Just some questions for GSTLs current and former. I am an external hire if that changes anything
1 do you like your position? Why or why not?
2 is it really that stressful?
3 is it worth it
4 how is the possibility of promotion
5 how is the work life balance
Any other advice?

2- what jobs has no stress attached to it?
3- do you like the pay?
4- are you willing to work for a promotion?

I generally enjoy my job. I'm always busy. There's always something to do. There will be days that you aren't given the resources to succeed. Those are frustrating, but you need to be okay ending your shift knowing you did the best you could, or at least recognizing what you could've done better the next time around.

Delegate. Do not do everything yourself. You need to trust the cashier team to complete tasks without constant supervision.

Pay is pretty good as far as retail management goes. I would be willing to work for a promotion if I knew I wasn't starting grad school soon.

Work/life balance is pretty good. Working 40 hours/week with every other weekend off gives me plenty of time to do things. I don't think about work once I clock out.
