High performance culture and customer centric

Being a store manager in my environment and my customer segment comes with different challenges daily always forcing you to raise your bar from the previous one, it is fulfilling and insightful. It's been a challenge that has grown me as a person. My greates achievement in this role is successfully undergoing a revamp with various complexities from a store size 3200sq to 6002sq within tight timelines and still considering my customer and trade. My second win is seeing my store team delivering on great customer experience despite the store complexities. Being able to influence my team to always put the customer 1st and seeing them feel great about it. My work environment is a fast paced environment which requires every staff member to be on top of their game every hour.

Pros: It's a great company to be part of.
Cons: Long hours spend commuting to work

Good preparation for better opportunities

EDCON is a good company to learn about retail so that when you go somewhere else you are prepared fully to face anything because it is quite volatile. Typical day at work is al about being at your desk and completing what's needed and being called midway for a meeting or conference call and now you will have to work through lunch to complete your work. They don't work on productivity so once you done with your work you need to find something to do because you can't knock off before knock off time.

Pros: Retail company
Cons: No flexibility

Excellent learning curve

The best part about my job is meeting different people everyday day with different personalities and also knowing that they can trust me to give them the best shopping experience, advise them accordingly and to their needs. And I have been able to learn alot from my counter manager, like how to run a successful business, that's almost always trading up on a monthly basis, the leadership skills that are required to be great Manager and how to manage people and we have team of 6 people altogether and we work well together, and as much as we have personal targets, we also know that we need to help each other to achieve our target and also by focusing on the bigger goal which is to achieve the monthly target. The challenging part of my job is only when we do not have enough resources to make our target, we do alot of demonstrations to be able to show the customer what the product can do and the power of actually feeling it, which immediately creates a connection.

Pros: Healthy environment to work in
Cons: Long working hours
