How we Recruit the Best
When interviewing a candidate for a retail management position, it’s crucial to get an idea of their previous experience and overall knowledge of the day-to-day management of a team. Search Solution Group’s retail management recruiters focus not only on the years of experience but also on the candidate’s performance details of the previous role—did they meet customer demand? What was their success rate? Did they increase product turnover and maximize profitability? Managing a retail team is a numbers game as well as a leadership opportunity, and providing good numbers is critical.
Another key aspect of recruiting for retail management is asking behavioral questions that guide the candidate to provide anecdotes of handling “crisis” scenarios when their customer service skills were put to the test. It’s incredibly important for the candidate to be able to speak about high-pressure situations in which they exhibited excellent communication and customer service skills, and how those situations aided in their development as a professional.
The retail management expert recruiters at Search Solution Group know what to look for in a candidate in order to make an effective placement. They have placed professionals at some of the largest names in retail and merchandising due to their extensive networks and ability to headhunt and contact the most successful retail management professionals.
