Everyone has had a manager that they have either thought was, very interesting and made the job easy going. Or the opposite, a manager that is very demanding, strict, and just makes it hard on employees. However at Sixteen Acres Garden Center located in Springfield, Massachusetts is a place that has a very great feel. Just like the saying happy work place is a productive work place. Like most work places there is a level of a managerial hierarchy; Sixteen Acres Garden Center, there are three categories of managers. Each assigned with responsibilities that are required for the work place to be a happy one, they are all equally important roles in the business as a whole.
One of the three managers at Sixteen Acres Garden Center is the retail manager, Pete. As the retail manager he is responsible for many different things that occur usually inside the store, which is located more towards the front of the Garden Center. In the mornings, Pete is usually one of the first managers to arrive, around seven o’clock, to unlock the gate and open doors for the fellow employees and customers. As the morning gets to a start, a few workers help Pete set up the and get everything ready throughout the store; turning on the lights, morning organizing, quick stocking of missing items, little things here and there for the day to begin. As the workweek goes on, there are days of the week when Pete receives big shipments of inventory for the store. When that occurs the retail part of the Garden Center can be really busy for a few days after stocking the new inventory. Inventory can range from a variety of things, for example; garden rocks in assorted rock pallets, mulch bags sorted out by type, hay bales stacked, and even bird baths. So as one of the three managers, Pete has to make sure things go well and items are placed correctly and neatly throughout the store, in order for customer to feel comfortable and happy.
