What you'll be doing:

As an Assistant Store Manager, you will assist the Store Manager in running the store. This means hiring, training, motivating and supervising staff.

You'll lead meetings, help the store meet its customer and donor satisfaction standards, maintain displays and merchandising presentations, ensure that any cash is handled as per policy and drive the store towards meeting or exceeding its budgeted financial performance. Ongoing training is provided. As you progress in your career you may be offered the opportunity to transfer to other stores.

What you need to know: This is not like other retail jobs.

Sure, we work the same 45+ hour weeks and yes, we're open all 7 days, but there's more to it than that. Our products are gently donated items, items that need to be unpacked, sorted, displayed. It's messy.

It's dusty. It can be cold in the winter, hot in the summer. The store manager needs to trust you to proactively address situations and resolve them.

Thinking ahead and prioritizing are crucial skills here. You need to understand the in-store experience and be able to engage and motivate employees to deliver excellent customer service. We use computers, email, Microsoft Office every day. If you're someone who can keep an eye on the big picture while addressing the day to day work in front of you, you'll do really well here.

Does this sound like a place for you? If so, please apply today.

Our process takes about 15 minutes to complete. Once you do, our recruiting team will reach out to you within a few days. Thank you for your time and your interest in Goodwill of North Georgia.
