Another job interview

With a mob called PixiFoto. They run little portrait studios in all the main shopping centres and are looking for a manager for their Boronia studio. Actually, "studio" is a bit of a misnomer - they have a little section down the back of Kmart.
Anyway, the interview went quite well I thought.
I'm not sure if it's the job for me though - not much actual photography involved.
The manager's job is more to do with promotion, touting for business, administration, etc. The interviewer told me, made it very clear in fact, that the turnover of studio managers is very high - the pressure of having to constantly be meeting targets is the cause of that apparently.
Anyway, she'll call me on Monday or Tuesday to let me know. If it's a yes then I'll get a few weeks (paid) training in another studio before taking over at Boronia.
If it's a no - back to the search.

Well, good luck to you!
I wonder, if they know what the cause of the high turn over is, why don't they make the necessary changes? or pay a huge salary so folks would stay? I'll never understand some management styles..
