Description

If you are an experienced retail supervisor who is looking for a fun and rewarding new career direction, join our team at Shoe Station! Founded 30 years ago, we are now one of the nation’s largest independent shoe retailers, with eighteen stores in five states. The latest styles of over sixty famous name brands are sold at our huge, self-service, open-shelf locations. As we continue to expand and add new stores, we need top candidates like you to serve as Assistant Retail Store Managers

You will be responsible for the smooth operation of your store, effective management of a team of 30 employees, and delivery of the world-class quality and service that our customers have come to expect from us. Each of our stores has its own individual identity, rather than all being set up identically. This allows you plenty of leeway in how you run your particular Shoe Station outlet, and our corporate leadership is always interested in hearing your ideas on process and product improvements.

This is a salaried position that offers competitive compensation and benefits, plus an average work week of 45 hours to ensure a satisfying work/life balance that you don’t often find in other retail organizations. If this sounds like the kind of career move you’ve been waiting for, and if you meet our qualifications, we want to talk with you. Contact us today!
