Tasks performed

However, these job functions are essentially the same across all businesses. Retail assistant managers are mainly responsible for directing their team in implementing retail strategies based on the business goals. The daily job functions include scheduling and assigning tasks to the associates, as directed by the retail managers. At times, they perform the managers' duties in their absence. During peak season, they might have to cover shifts of the retail associates as well. When doing so, they should ensure that excellent customer service is maintained throughout. These managers help customers with purchase choices and deal with customer returns and other customer concerns. In addition, retail assistant managers are in charge of hiring and training new employees and ensuring that the new hires adhere to company policies.
