Gas Station Manager needed in Canada by 3101278 Nova Scoita Limited

The roles of gas station managers have changed a lot since the 1960s and 1970s, when their employers sold just gas and little else. Now they oversee fuel and mini mart operations and all the electronic trappings that accompany them. These professionals may be the owners of gas stations or manage large chain stores. In either case, their duties are usually administrative or relate to customers.

Waiting on Customers

Gas station managers usually work with few employees and may run shifts by themselves. Consequently, they usually wait on customers who make gas or food purchases. Many gas bays are self-service, but managers often have to activate the gas pumps from inside their units after credit card transactions are processed. These professionals also make change for customers, answer questions about prices or special promotions and provide directions if asked. They also check customers’ IDs for all beer, wine or liquor purchases.

Counting Inventory and Ordering

Many gas stations in the 21st century sell high volumes of merchandise, including snacks, ready-to-eat meals, beverages and cigarettes. Managers must periodically count merchandise on shelves and in stockrooms, and place orders when necessary. Out-of-stock products can cost gas stations hundreds of dollars in lost sales. Inventory and ordering in many chain stores are more automated, as cash registers connected to computers subtract product units as they are purchased. Managers then check reports or printouts to determine the products they need.

Merchandising

Most gas station managers have merchandising responsibilities. These duties can include building displays to feature high-selling items, inserting product signs on shelves or placing large promotional banners on windows. Managers may delegate some merchandising duties to employees, but they are the ones responsible for the proper placement of displays or banners, especially if they run corporate stores. Gas station managers also feature their lowest gas prices on signs.

Supervising Employees

A gas station manager supervises employees and schedules their work hours. These professionals also hire and train employees on running cash registers, operating gas pumps, cleaning floors and lots, emptying trash and serving customers. Gas station managers must also train workers on various safety procedures, such as dropping large bills in locked deposit boxes and watching for suspicious activity: people hanging around for long periods or cars that leave and return — anything that appears threatening or suggests a possible robbery.

Building Sales and Managing Expenses

Gas station managers are usually responsible for building sales and managing expenses. To build sales, they may use “suggestive selling” by suggesting additional products to go along with customers’ purchases. “Would you like a cold drink to go with those chips” is an example of suggestive selling. Managers may also build sales by offering superior service — such as being friendly and willing to help people find what they need — to customers, which leads to repeat business. Gas station managers must operate within budget parameters for expenses such as labor and inventory costs. Sending an employee home on a slow day is an example of saving on labor expenses. Selling older, perishable items first minimizes waste and reduces inventory costs.
