Is being a co manger worth it? Or is it better to be a department head?

Co, of course. Salaried management will always beat hourly. You have career options you can take with you virtually any where, even outside of retail (which I did).

Department head? Specific to just. Exactly. That. i.e., dead end.

Department heads have managorial duties that can be taken elsewhere for hiring purposes. If you really think theres no upward momentum for department heads, get better interviewing skills and some imagination. If youre interesting in LE, being a department head will really really help you get in, whereas not being a department head shows district management and others that you dont have drive. That is why I sayDepartment Head. If you cant handle running a corner of the store, you cant handle LE.

I was referring to sanity, workload, work-life balance with saying Department Head. Yes, becoming a Co-Manager looks good on paper, but with the current environment, Co-Managers are long lasting too long.

I personally wouldnt be a co manager because once you are a co, they can move you to whatever store they want, plus all the co managers have to deal with totally sucks. I would be a dept head.

I don't think either one is necessarily "better" in general. A few of department heads I have worked with in the past eventually became co-managers. For the most part they were pretty happy about it because it was the only way to bring home more money. Only drawback is that you will be working longer hours and can be moved around to another store for business needs.
