Installed Sales Nationwide is being Centralized. All team members holding those positions will be let go or can grab inside the stores.
What about the receiving team?
Any change at the nursery
I got fired on 11/4. I was the best plumbing specialist and plumbing guru in my store. Also a female! But they pulled me in the office told me I didn't finish the IRPs when it was days I didn't work. No it's ands or buts... I was gone, no proof, no help. Since I have left they have been firing the best people they have, and overworking the rest. It's all about the dollar for the stockholders. We are just a number... Literally! I took my unemployment with a smile. Looking for a job but enjoying the holidays without having to worry about my irradic schedule.
Anyone hear anything about installed sales? The IS manager was recently fired at a store in my area and they are not posting the position.
As others have alluded to already, full-time hourly/non-management positions will pretty much all be going away—with perhaps just a few exceptions. And those that remain will be expected to work wherever they are needed at any given time, including on the sales floor or running a register and with OPEN AVAILABILITY. Unless you qualify for one of those very few position and/or accept a position as a supervisor or manager, you really need to think about finding another line of work.
I work Oulg watering plants are Lowe’s going to eliminate that position?
Delivery sounds like Marv wants to schedule them on a a$$ needed basis. No wonder why we have one delivery guy in our store! Who wants to lift push and pull heavy stuff around and have inconsistent rest then drive the lows box truck around tired every day. Happy super spreader Friday
Your numbers up full-timers. Only full timers left are going to be the DS.
Nearly every full timer that has left my store has been replaced with a part timer.
Marvins plan hire as many part timers during the pandemic for a bigger tax write off. Profits will soar and the service will drop
They are not getting rid of appliances specalist
I can see them getting rid of specialist and taking away there bonus to save money. Regular full time employees should be safe. If they need to eliminate any jobs it should be dept. Supervisors and or Asms. Those are the most overpaid lack of customer service jobs throughout the company. Not all of them are but as a majority company wide these are the positions that waste money.
If that is the case, what is the point of having a sales manager?
Appliance Specialist will be changed to CSA4 , this is not a rumor, it will happen in January.
They will be laying off some full time associates to save money in Jan 2021. They will replace with more part time people. Part of Marvin's plan.
