Management is what I was born to do as my future career. It took me three years and a full-time job after high school to finally realize what I love to do. Before I ended up back in college I was a cashier and eventually a shift manager at the grocery store, Aldi. Here is where I realized how much I loved being a manager; helping people, training people, and making a difference in people’s daunting shopping trip.
I had a manager who only cared about himself; he was rude, mean, and downright nasty to his employees and the customers. He took the shifts and jobs around the store that he wanted and were easy, and left the rest for us to do. He made customers fend for themselves and figure it out on their own. We could never do it right, amazing workers were quitting because he was so mean and unfair. However, I am so grateful that I got to work for him, nothing in life is easy, and he showed me how NOT to manage a business.
I want to make a difference in people’s lives, I want workers to be proud and happy to come to work every day. I would love for customers to rave about their customer service and our business etiquette. I would make all that happen, by treating my workers and customers how I want to be treated. Without customers you have no business, and without employees you’re bound to fail.
