Thread regarding CVS layoffs

Project Brady timeline

No layoffs, just merging Target and updating region and district lines. Target will be absorbed into core districts and lines will be redrawn.

5/3: field announcement call
6/7: new district alignment shared
6/13: store handoff / communication
6/27: changes take place for 2nd half of the year

What this is is someone with a lot of spare time on their hands pretending they are a bunch of separate people posting up this Project Brady nonsense.

We knew this pretty much from the beginning.

We knew this because they got shaky on the time all of these magic conference calls were supposed to happen.

We knew this because literally the only mention of Project Brady was on this site. A tiny thread on r/CVS that came about because of posts on this forum died off.

It is now July and still no changes at my store. No realignment. No nothing. There were no layoffs, which @13nuh+1aubnp0O is trying to use as proof that Project Brady happened, even though no one said that layoffs were a certainty without Project Brady.

Want more proof? OP and every Project Brandy comment is downvoted to oblivion.

I can’t believe people still don’t believe this. Guess my position didn’t actually get eliminated. 😂

I love this. I just read all of the comments calling the original poster a troll and saying this is 100% false. Well what do you know? It is actually 100% true after all, dates and all. You are all Absolutely hysterical 😂

No, still not true. Liars! Brady Project still isn’t technically real. What is real? We could all be part of a simulation in Larry Merlo’s consciousness and he could still be our CEO. Also, CVS is founded upon conspiracies about mergers of Trojan vibrators and Pokémon cards...Read between the lines. Don’t be fooled.

#Qanon = PBM + Aetna - 40 Demand = ACO/VirtualVerification = Devil+OmniCare x Trees = LongReceipts. What really is Care Pass ? Hall Pass to avoid Care. Biden Is skinny Trump?

@wmra+1aubnp0O read the room dude. This has been throughly debunked for three weeks now.

You aren't getting anyone riled up. You are just being a mild pest. Go find somewhere else to troll, we aren't falling for it anymore.

Stop trolling.

This is very true. District Leaders were given the information on 5/4. This has been expected to happen for the past 2-3 years. I don’t understand why all of your are skeptical of it being true. It makes perfect sense that CVS would do this.

Wow you don't give up, do you? Let me be clear: the story is a fraud, you know it, I know it. Doubling down only digs you a deeper ho-e.

Just stop already. Let this Project Brady nonsense die.

Post ID: @gsxb+1aubnp0O

Timeline for the field to find out new alignments has been pulled up one week. We will now find out the week of 5/31. This will give newly created districts without a DPC a full month to get someone in place.

There will be a “meeting in a box” to go through the changes with our store teams.

Don’t think anyone has a reason to make this up.

"Being a troll" is sufficient reason to make stuff up on the Internet.

Heavens. Multiple posters here have already called this out. This "Project Brady" nonsense is fake news. I will grant you that someone put a lot of effort into keeping it going, but too much vagueness and too many mistakes make it obvious that this is fake. The doubt started literally 2 hours after this was posted.

Most of you will have a new DL, RD & new districts by end of June.

Post ID: @fksy+1aubnp0O

On the 0.00000001% chance that this was real: Can you see why this whole story screams that this is fake?

But it is far more likely that this screams fake because it is fake.

Give up. You got caught spreading bs, stop trying to double down.

Post ID: @fmso+1aubnp0O

I was on the call yesterday as well. Shared what is and isn't happening, the why, the what, and the timeline.

The original poster was correct, those are the timelines given to us on the call yesterday.

Maybe the 5/3 date wasn't clear, and that was the date we received the invite to the call and not the call itself.

Up to you whether you believe it's happening or not - but it is and the will be relocations, and you may have a new DL for the second half of the year.

Post ID: @dalt+1aubnp0O

Yes a call did happen today. They announced Larry is going to be playing in Weekend at Bernies 3 and Karen is stepping down to be a store manager. Store Managers from Target will run CVS front store now. 18 year old pharmacists will be the new DLs. Chewbaka will be the new Health Hub SVP. May the 4th be with you.

No, it didn't happen.

Post ID: @ckxj+1aubnp0O

As a core DL, I was on the call with Jeff and Emmanuel. Jeff’s was hokey as always and his microphone cut out 2 or 3 times because our leaders can’t even figure out how to run a webex appropriately.

We won’t know new store alignments until the spoken of 6/7 date, with communication the following week to the stores/teams with handover occurring.

The next 4-5 weeks, the target channel sups will decide whether to take a new role and start front store training.

Regionals/Divisionals are able to draw the lines this time to make them right. Reducing state overlap and district overlap is the priority.

Post ID: @cwbp+1aubnp0O

Time's up!

This whole thing is a troll. Facts:

  • Grossly hyped-up situation that many commenters disbelieve
  • Baited by a call on May 3
  • Ohwaitno the call is actually on May 4 at "1pm EST," notwithstanding that if they had been looking at a proper schedule it would have told them it was EDT at this time of year,
  • And the call offers exactly no new information

I admit, it is plausible, but that is what makes this troll so attractive. But nonetheless, it is a troll. Fake news.

Post ID: @crva+1aubnp0O

That could mean there was a call. Or it could mean that the person who started this nonsense is just regurgitating the claims made in the original post.

8 minutes. More information (that is coherent), or this goes into the dustbin.

Post ID: @czxy+1aubnp0O

New alignment as of 6/27. No change in headcount. Fully integrated target and core. More reasonable districts based on geography.

Post ID: @cwuz+1aubnp0O

Color me skeptical.

We were told yesterday there would be a "1pm call," now today we are told the call will be "today at 1pm EST [sic]"

Time to fish or cut bait: We expect details of this call by 2:30 PM EDT. If that deadline comes and there is nothing solid, or you are tempted to say the call is now going to be tomorrow, do yourself a favor and don't bother because at that point we will know this whole "Project Brady" thing is a lie.
