Hi Ozbargain, I thought I would reach out to the general group to get some thoughts on people who may have had sucess. A internal manager position has come up in my company, however it is at a branch which has not been too successful (profitabilty, team culture to head office, ect) with 2 manager quitting over 2 years. I am pretty happy in my current role but there can always be room for improvement in pay.
The positives would be that I would have a high chance of being successfully accepted, it will be a promotion and I will be able to learn new things/add to my skills and experience. The negative is that there is a high chance that the branch will be shut down if it does not turn around (loss of job), increased travel time of 1.5 hour, more stress with a step up in position.
So I wanted to ask, would you apply to be a manger at a branch which will be very difficult to turn into a success? any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated
