I worked in management. While my coworkers were good people I have to say this is the most miserable job I have ever worked. Managers are salaried, overtime exempt, but that doesn't keep them from consistently having you stay for meetings, to MOD, cover closing manager lunches, or complete job tasks many hours past the time you were scheduled to work. They even criticized me for not coming in for a team-building lunch on my day off (which was unpaid), and tried to fire me when I got injured on the job.
The bureaucracy of the upper management makes it feel like you can never do anything right, always get criticized for doing something wrong, and that you are a failure at your job. The turnover rate for management there is well over 50% in a year's time. They even tried to bring in long tenured managers 10+ year from other stores in other states, have them relocate their lives and families, and fired 3 of them in less than a year. If they succeeded for ten plus years in other locations and were fired in less than a year it tells you something about how upper management handles their managers.
Work Life balance, no overtime, bureaucracy
