Area Manager

 

Summary of Position:? 

Our Leaders Lead! As a T-ROC Area Manager, leading by example isn’t just a catch phrase or something to strive for, it’s a critical aspect in preparing our Assembly Technicians. This is done by demonstrating “how” to build safely and quickly, resulting in a quality finished product. Our field training leaders understand our retailer’s business, as well as the practices necessary to assemble bicycles correctly, effectively, and rapidly, as well as grills, furniture, and other consumer goods. These experts in their respective trade deliver the highest quality training through on-the-job sessions, in-field audits, on-going best practice sharing, and regular product/inventory assessment. The Area Manager lives the behavior they look to convey to the T-ROC Assembly Technicians through their interactions with store management and staff. It is a hands-on role providing others with the knowledge and expertise necessary, to allow for a hands-off approach, that empowers our Assembly Technicians to manage their daily work assignments for T-ROC’s retail partners. If you are a professional ready to take your mechanical expertise, mentoring aptitude, and the desire to help people learn as you build a great career with a premier vendor of retail support services, T-ROC has a place for you.
