Stores have different personnel working various roles. Some are assigned to handle the stockroom, while some handle stocking shelves. Some are assigned at the cash register, while some assist customers along the aisles. This is the same for store managers, especially in big stores. Big stores may have more than one manager working or would have assistant managers to help the manager in overseeing the store. One of the roles an Assistant Store Manager may have is being an Operations Manager.
Assistant store managers/operations managers help the store manager in overseeing the operations side of the business. This includes logistics, costing, and number-crunching. They ensure that the store runs well. They also check and ensure that there are no problems that will lead to the halting of operations. They also ensure that all of the store's systems are working. In addition, they handle changes in store regulations and other processes.
If you are dependable and are great at managing processes, this role is for you. In addition to the skills mentioned, you also need to be good with people, both colleagues and customers.
