So I have a dilema. My boss is fed up with the manager trying to manage and be department head, which is something 1 person cannot do properly in that store. For those who don't know , I work in a shoe store. So, I'm currently the Basement Department head with control of mens/ladies steel toe, mens winter/hiking/dress boots/sandals/western/biker/slippers etc Also mens, ladies, kids sports cleats (which is fun with me being English and calling 2 different sports... Football :-D So anyway, I like being in the basement, I have my own freedom of what I want and what sales to put out etc. So this morning my boss says "I have to decided where I want you" I know he is talking about giving me the Mens department which deals with everything else in mens shoes and includes ladies technical runners/Ortho shoes and special fit and larger kids shoes. Now this will probably mean bit more money and more sales therefore more bonus. It also means dealing with more companies and more responsibility. I already work on that side a fair bit , whenever the manager is off and am apparently extremely knowledgeable of supportive and orthopaedic fits. It also means myself and the manager will go head to head about how and what to do, which we already do in the basement sometimes. I like my manager but at the same time if I'm head, I want to try what I believe works and so far in the basement I have executed many ideas that have worked well. So I don't want to be a puppet because that basically means a psychological demotion. Urgh, why can't things just stay the same. Rant ends.
