  3. How do I ask to get moved to a slower store?


I started with this company at the beginning of the year. I did so well they moved me to a management position within my first 2 months. I have turned one of the worst locations in the company into one of the best and I’m well on my way to a district manager position, but the problem is, I hate this job. I love selling. I love the company. I just hate being a manager in a busy location. I like to take my time with guests. Get to know them and get the most out of every sale. I find myself struggling to do that in a location such as this. This is also exacerbated by the fact they won’t give me more coverage and overtime isn’t allowed. I know it’s bizarre, and probably a bad career move, but I would be much happier in a slower location. Part of me wants to hold out and wait for that next promotion, but who knows how long that will be. Could be a year or longer. I can’t see myself doing something I don’t like for that long. I’m afraid if I ask to be moved to a slower location they’re going to think I’m crazy and potentially not even allow it. I’m really at a loss of what to do… any advice ? I have terrible anxiety and I know that’s crazy to hear from a salesperson, but It’s the truth. I think part of what has led to my success in sales is I attempt to sell peace of mind via our products, understanding first hand how important peace of mind is… it seems to work.
