I was a closing store in this last round all part time got transferred except for full time and asm still out on limbo, all stores have different circumstances example full time associates 20 plus years high salary non promotable..Don’t need to think twice what’s gonna happen to them, Company has to do what’s right for them. My only problem is when we play politics and are not honest with your people.

It all depends on how close another store is to an associates home. They try to retain people where possible. Although ASMs have the most trouble as only high volume stores have them for the most part now.
Well good for you, I just told you what happened in our district. That’s accurate.
Not entirely accurate. I was the store manager of a closing store. Was promoted to a higher volume store prior to the closing. I took 2 of my 3 keyholders with me (the 3rd already lived an hour away and no stores were closer)
I also brought back from furlough every single employee that was commutable to my new store (20 mins away from my closing store)
just move on
One of the stores in our district closed in the last round of store closings. What happened there was the store manager and the department supervisor got shuffled to another store, the ASMs were chopped, and the full-timers were given take it or leave it offers of transferring to stores 20, 30 miles away. The part-timers were given a thank you, goodbye. That should give you an idea of what to expect, so get that resume ready.
