What this job is about
OK, so you did the whole "working at the mall" thing: Now what? By transitioning from a traditional retail associate job to becoming a regional retail manager, you go from working at one location to overseeing all locations within specific boundaries. Working directly with managers and associates from each store, you'll work to set price points, improve customer service and coordinate sales and other activities. You might also do some training, so you'll need killer communication skills and solid quality analysis and organization chops. Bonus: You'll totally know when all the best sales are.
