Operations Manager

January 1970

Work life balance is non-existent. If you have a family, re-think working in this field. You are expected to work holidays with no time in-between. When you grow into management you are expected to work 6 days a week during events or high season - with no extra compensation. Men are promoted through the operations divisions quicker then women. However, a majority of sales managers are female.

    Maybe. Work life balance is non-existent. Some depts promote women more rapidly, while others lean towards men.

We have a female store manager and lots of women department managers. Benefits are fair and generous for retail.

There are many opportunities but you have to work hard to find the right ones or you can be in danger of being a scape goat.

No bonuses unless you're a manager, and no raises in a lot of departments. Cost of living raise is 0-3%, but usually about 1%. A lot of attention is paid to whether you get along with people or come across as inviting and smiley, regardless of your actual results. The word "b*tchy" was used regularly by my superiors to describe why I wasn't going to be promoted or given a raise, despite the fact that I got along very well with my peers. Other women received similar reviews. I was also criticized for not sharing more about my personal life and not getting emotional over feedback -- when my boss gave me negative feedback, he started crying, and remarked that he was surprised I wasn't crying myself. It later showed up on my formal review that I didn't convey I cared much about negative feedback and didn't take it seriously.

    Maybe. Maternity leave is lacking. IVF/Contraception is covered.

Worked for a few years. It is pretty cut throat, commissioned based.
