There are four things that I as a store manager would immediately act upon. The first being ?A customer complaint regarding product quality.? I believe that in order to maintain a store, the store needs to have a high customer satisfaction rate. One unhappy customer can change how others feel about doing business with your store. To counteract the customer complaint I would step in to see if there is anything that I could do to change the customer's opinion about our store. This is called customer complaint resolution. The second thing I would immediately act on would be ?Bids from three companies responding to requests for bids on a cash register system (each store chooses its own).?

I feel that the store manager should the main person in charge of maintaining the safety of a stores location. The last issue I would as store manager immediately act on would be ?A note that the rest room is out of order.? According to standards from OSHA, a working toilet is a must. As store manager I would see that the problem in the restroom would be fixed as quickly as humanly possible.

If however, they wish to delegate that task to a salesperson, I would be able to trust that the task will be completed in a timely fashion. [...]
