A manager trainee is mentored and supervised by the manager or executives in a company. The goal is to acquire all the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to become a manager. You might find yourself interning in different departments at different points in time in order to learn about all the different parts of the company and how they come together to function as one.
Your responsibilities would usually involve all managerial and administrative roles but under supervision and guidance. Plus, you will get the opportunity to be present when important decisions are taken, and you might be given a chance to contribute.
No one becomes a manager by accident, and this is why a lot is expected of manager trainees. You are expected to exhibit strong leadership and communication skills, a good knowledge of your products, and excellent customer service. Of course, it is highly essential that you are a good human resources manager. Manager trainees are paid $20 an hour, which amounts to $42,000 a year. You are required to hold at least a bachelor's degree in business, finance, and other related fields.
