Small store managers ARE the text book manager, GM, shipping & receiving, store HR manager, AR, etc. at a much smaller salary & good luck getting sick, work thru it & taking a vacation, not.

What is considered a small store? If the number is 1.5 mil where cuts are going to happen that doesn't seem like a small store to me, most of the stores in my region do less than that.
If this is the case is the sm now going to be the store, text, shipping, gm, manager?
Small stores have all the same task as a big store, just on a smaller volume.

Cuts will be FT ASM and department managers based on store size. Cutoff seems to be 1.5 mil, and end date for impacted team members seems to be Feb. Some language seems to state that an impossible sales increase could save positions. So, tiny stores, go out there and make $1 mil in text sales before Christmas and you should be good.

Do you really think RMs or Store Mgrs are going to give us a heads up about this ???
No way....

No releases to SMs. This sort of vague trash posting is trolling at its finest. The ASM position exists at stores well above the ‘small’ size as a salaried position only. Short of store closure nothing has gone out to the field. Am
I then to be cut ask the smarmy? Right back atcha. We all live under the executioner’s axe. Just another day in paradise. Focus on what your role is and not on the paranoia many gleefully seed.

Perhaps massive layoffs?
Stores run to run on a self serve (honor) model. Check yourself out (like at the grocery).
Possible shrinkage offset by massive labor savings!
Labor savings going into more senior management at Ivory Tower.
Yeah!

Never thought I'd say this, but I don't miss Follett. There is light on the other side and it's not always a freight train.

I guess the heartbeat of the company is getting cut out to go to Orlando. Someone call 911 because we're dying here.

It’s said that managers will be receiving emails with details by the end of this week. Anyone gotten a lead from RMs?

The question now is whether managers will be sworn to silence before December 1, as in 2013. Stores are getting hit.

Overheard from two folks at HO about a con call that ASMs at small stores will get the cut, and there’s a freeze on hiring certain roles.
