How to be a Manager – Sad Truth

Sad to say…all of the websites and articles you see or have seen or read, and all of the “work hard and earn your keep” content that tells you that working hard pays off, is extremely untrue. From retail jobs to trade skill careers, all managers are where they are because of a friend or a family member.
By today’s standards and the loopholes of society, 98% of management are in position because they have a higher up in the company.
These people are the least eligible employees and the most useless to the company; but, they possibly show up on time may never miss days.
No one earns management. Why would they take their hardest working employee and pull them out of their current position?

If you are a manager and you think differently, then you are selectively ignoring the fact that the area manager is the one who gave you that spot and you have or had a friendship or relationship with that manager.

Things to remember when you are a manager
You are not a boss. You are an organizer and the employees depend on you to have things organized.
You are not a leader. You are the person who makes the schedule, there is nothing you are leading here. NOTHING.
If people refuse to follow your schedule, you take it to your superior.

So the truth is: You will not become a manager; you will not get a raise from earning your keep. You will get your raise and/or promotion to management position by who you know.

With that said, if you are not a manager, then you are not friendly with the person who makes people managers, and you need to be.
