Harbor Freight Tools Assistant Store Manager

The Assistant Store Manager position is used primarily as a "Manager-In-Training" position for recruiting and training Store Managers. Because of national expansion, the Assistant Store Manager position is used as a position which supplies the company with a ready source of managers familiar with retail management but not necessarily familiar with this company. Usual operating hours of retail locations are 8 am to 7 pm Monday through Sunday, 76+ hours per week.

All employees do stocking and display, pricing, cashiering (computer point-of-sale), receiving, clean-up, customer service, after business hours special projects, and sales.

The company selects Assistant Store Manager candidates who have had management or supervision experience with other retailers. Upon hire, Assistant Store Managers learn the company by performing the common tasks of all employees. Additionally, Assistant Store Managers quickly become responsible for the store in the absence of the manager and learn product ordering, inventory, opening and closing, personnel and timekeeping (including discipline, wage administration, performance reviews, hiring, employee relations, etc.), labor scheduling, merchandising, customer relations, sales reporting, office procedure, direction of store operations, and training. While in this training/introductory period, it is estimated that 40-45% of the Assistant Store Manager's time involves managing the store in the absence of the manager who is away for vacation, holiday, sick time, training time, and regular weekly days off. Such duty carries FULL responsibility for all store operations and personnel including safety and security.

Within the first several weeks of hire, an Assistant Store Managers will work in temporary assignment in a training store to learn company operations, procedures, and policies. Within 6-18 months of hire, Assistant Store Managers are given a written test covering all phases of store operations. The test is divided into sections which correspond to all major areas where knowledge of company policies and procedures involving store operations and management are important. Successful completion of each section of the written test is necessary.

The on-the-job training period for an Assistant Store Manager typically lasts 6 to 18 months, after which time he or she is eligible for promotion to a full manager position in another location.

Job duties and responsibilities involve: regular and significant management responsibilities; independent thinking and decision making (i.e. in the absence of the store manager); supervision, training, and instruction of workers; hiring, pay and performance administration; discipline and separation; responsibility for safety and security; responsibility for receipts, deposits and reporting in accordance with company policy.
