The amount an assistant manager at a major retail store earns per hour depends on the experience that they have in the role.

  • Breakdown of hourly salary based on experience
Somebody who is working a 40-hour week will earn approximately $34,000 a year if they have been in the job role for less than 4 years. The hourly rate is therefore $16.35. People, who have been in the job role for between 4 and 9 years, earn, on average $42,000, which is the equivalent of $20.19 per hour. Those who have been in the job role for 10 years or more will earn an average of $45,000, which is $21.63 per hour. So on average, an assistant manager at a retail store will earn approximately $19.39 per hour, or $40,000 per year.

  • Duties of an assistant manager
The main duty of an assistant manager in a retail outlet is to provide support to the manager, and to ensure that direction and focus is passed onto the team below them. Other duties will include recruiting and developing staff to meet their roles, maintaining high standards, and ensuring that all staff members remain motivated. An assistant manager will also have some input into meeting budgets, and will deal with complaints and other inquiries. They will be expected to serve and deal with customers and manage deliveries from suppliers. Promotional work will also need to be undertaken, and the team that works for the assistant manager will require supervising at all times. An assistant manager must be able to lead, and work as part of a team. They should have excellent communication skills and be driven and enthusiastic. Decision-making is another responsibility that will be required to be undertaken.
