So I Got The Job.

I know, some of you are wondering 'What job? I didn't know anything about this!' Yeah, I didn't tell everyone. Only a couple folks knew of the situation. Anyone who really knows me knows that I work for Wal-Mart in the produce department. Apt enough a job for a rabbit, right? Well, a month ago my department manager put in for a transfer to a neighborhood market. It took them a bit to give her the green light on it and actually give her the final day to be transferred. Upon finding out for sure I kinda flip-flopped on putting in my application for it and whatnot. It wasn't sure if I'd be a good fit for the position. Eventually I decided that I'd rather do it myself since I know what's involved and I know the department. My only concern at the time was there's another individual in my department who'd been doing this type of stuff for years and has considerably more experience than myself. I was really expecting, and secretly hoping, he'd get it. Well, two days ago we found out he put in for another department position that'd opened up and got it. So, that basically left me. There were a couple others in the pool but no one that management really wanted.

So today I get to work and I'm approached by my assistant manager, asking me for sure if I want the job. I say yes, though after I told him I'd still been waffling on the idea, unsure if I would really want to do it, but, reiterating that I don't want someone else that doesn't know the position or what they're doing. I was supposed to have gone through an interview process but I think they just decided that they wanted me as the department manager and no one else, so they gave me the job offer outright.

I'm honestly not sure how well I'm going to do in this job. I have concerns that when it comes to what I need to do, like telling others to do their work or getting tough with folks, that I might not be able to do it. Management has confidence in me and really if I don't try it then I won't know for sure how well I can do this. I just hope I do my best and can get some things straightened out. And honestly this is a nice turn of things after having been jumping from job to job to job the past four years. It's a nice bit of stability and direction that I need.

Now I need to get an ID picture appropriate to my new position.

I'm sure you'll do it. You will see how easy management positions are.

I just don't want to become some mindless manager like most of the ones I dislike.

nono don't get me wrong. It doesn't have to be hard to be good.
Or for you to be good. Actually that's what most managers turn into assholes.
They don't know shit they do, make problems everywhere and get frustrated and so aggressive.

If you encounter your magement work with some kind of relaxed attitude and dun go panic on every shit happens it will kinda move on it's own.

Works for me pretty well :]
It's an IT management but well, tellin ppl what to do is kinda same everywhere, even in the army.

Tha harder you make it the harder it gets :D

Oh I know.  It's just one of the things I worry about.  Especially since I took the position when the department's staff is practically cut in half.  It's going to be an uphill struggle to get folks in, providing they actually apply for the department.

I am pretty sure you will put as much of your energy in it to get people to apply again ;)

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

CONGRATS PALLY!!!!!! I AM SOOO PROUD OF YOOOOOOUUU <333333

You'll do fine, I have nothing but faith in your talents buddy. If I were there i'd smother you with hugs and kisses and we could go for a celebration dinner...so instead apply all that metaphorically <3

Haha.  Thanks man.  You're awesome, and yeah, I'd definitely go for the hugs and the dinner.  I had to order myself pizza as a celebration.  I'm worried, but, I think with time that'll pass and I'll be more comfortable.  At least I actually got the promotion instead of getting dicked around like I was at TGI Fridays.  I was supposed to have been promoted to manager there and they kept waffling on me about it until they finally said 'Well we're not sure what we want to do.'  Yeah, that left a sore spot.

Like I told you before, take the position, feel it out. From what you've told me if you want to be demoted just say so. Everyone's nervous getting into to something new, but what's the point of worrying? It's not going to make your experience any better and might be even worse.

I know.  I just can't help it because I always hold myself to a higher standard than I do anyone else I work with.  Granted, I expect folks to do their share and do a damn good job, but I always figure I should be able to run circles around folks and do the job exceptionally.  I've always been that way, hehe.  I'm gonna do it, though.  At least through the end of the year.  See how it goes and, from there, see what happens next.  I don't plan on bailing out after a week.

At first it seems kinda difficult to be in a management role. But once you get used to being the boss it gets a little easier to be tough when you need to be. Just don't take it overboard, otherwise your employees can be spiteful. On the flip side you can't be too soft or they will walk all over you.
Palmedo

Yeah, I've seen a lot of that both ways.  I try to be respectful and such to others.  The biggest thing is the guys I work with.  Wondering just how exactly they're gonna take to me being the new manager of the department.  Guess I'll just have to see.
