I wouldn't call him a 'bad' manager. He's very friendly, and if he sees you doing something wrong, he'll quietly pull you aside and tell you instead of making a scene of it, something our old manager liked to do but yes, I don't think I've ever seen him operate a register before. When it gets busy, you can count on him pacing up and down the store looking for grocery/produce members to drop everything and go help out front end, which is incredibly frustrating as sometimes this process takes forever and customers become even more impatient.Store Manager should be down there handing out baskets. Must be one of those 'do what I say while I look busy managers'.
Just a note: There are plenty of good managers, including store managers throughout our stores, however, like most professions, a minority give the rest a bad reputation.
