    So, I've been wondering this for awhile.  
     
    Every DM at Store 25 works on average 50-60 hours per week. Is this the same at the other stores? Our DDM (Components) tells us that at every other store, Managers rarely ever work over 40-45 hours unless its MOPAR, inventory, or a big sale weekend.  
     
    Any thoughts on this?

    I think the Average for DM's is around 45 to 50 Hours. Atleast in Customer Service.

    cutting hours for associates maybe but the dm's are on salary so they can work 80 hours a week and they'll still get paid the same as if they worked 40i love it when they call me big papa

    Though mainly, this is true, here in Arizona, even salaried employees are technically (Though not commonly practiced) entitled to overtime.Superhero!

    One of the best online shopping sites, ever.
     
     
    This woot stuff is pretty much like the Home Shopping Network. They post like 10 products on their blog and they all sell out within an hour. They also pull in about $80k in revenue per hour which is insane!i am a worm.

    None of that really made sense. Comparing woot to the HSN is like comparing Linux to Windows. It's not a blog, and they post one item a day, unless it's a woot-off. And eighty thousand dollars an hour amounts to 700 million dollars a year. They do well, but not nearly that well.

    Makes no sense to me then. All I see is their Revenue per hour: $80,000. I assume that's what they are averaging since it says updated every minute.i am a worm.

    I am a department manager and I am scheduled for 45.5 hours per week. In actuality, I work around 50-55 a week, sometimes 6 days a week.  
     
    I am also paid on salary and do not get any overtime pay.  
     
    Most DMs are scheduled around 45-50 hours weekly.

    I make a base salary of 32k yearly, and also get a bonus if our department hits GP goals.  
    Last year I pulled in 48k before taxes.  
    I am not the highest paid department manager in the store though, typically that goes to A/V and Computers.

    Yeah, I agree. It's true of most DMs that their Sups will sometimes take home a bigger paycheck than their Managers. I know if my Sup1 or even Sup2 works a few hours of overtime on a busy week that he's getting a bigger paycheck than I am.  
     
    32k yearly / 10 hours a day / 5 days a week / 50 weeks a year = 12.80 an hour before taxes  
     
    Even with the weekly bonus, my take home pay is less than $15 after taxes.  
     
    Best thing I can do it note that I have had leadership experience on my resume. I'm still fairly young so I still have plenty of time to move on when the time comes.

    Yeah, I mean I'm not complaining too much over the pay. I live a pretty frugal lifestyle and have no debt so I don't stress about money very much. Management is not really that hard, any chimp with common sense and a little training can do it, it's just very tedious and not worth it sometimes. Having to deal with the same problems, the same types of customers, the same home office nonsense, just wears you out after a while.  
     
    I wish I could just clock in, do my job, and clock out and go home. Unfortunately that's not the case if you're a DM. You're always on call, you're expected to answer your cell phone when needed, all problems rest on your shoulders, you can't really just leave it at the store when you go home, it comes with you and you're worrying how the department is running without you there. At least that's my obsessive nature of it.
