Site Managers have one of the most direct impacts on our customer experience. Site Managers own multiple stores in a particular geography and are responsible for the interviewing, hiring, and performance management of all the shoppers in those stores. They are the true gatekeepers of the people that directly serve our customers. A Site Manager has to vet and approve any in-store shopper before they can ever serve a customer.

As owners of multiple stores, Site Managers also play a critical role in providing guidance and support to our in-store Shift Leads. They are experts in our in-store operations and shopper performance, constantly learning and sharing best practices and honestly calling out when we fall short. Additionally Site Managers may be called upon to assist on special projects such as new store launch initiatives or new geography launches. Site Managers are both true members of the corporate team while also maintaining day to day interaction with our incredible group of shoppers.

Site Managers report up to Area Managers or Operations Managers.
