jefe divisional or jefe departamental


Explanation:
A "floor" in a retail establishment generally refers to the department (eg, "ladies wear", "furniture") In larger stores, one department can be an entire floor section, in others, several departments can share a floor - and a manager.

director de planta


Explanation:
The Routledge dictionary of business, commerce and finance translates "floor manager" as "jefe/a de sección" in the context of a department store (grandes almacenes).

The dictionary of Alcaraz Varó/Hughes translates it as "director de planta de unos grandes almacenes".

I would say "director de planta".

Un saludo.
