OfficeMax set to have Assistant Managers go hourly and take pay cuts

The current salaried assistant managers in OfficeMax stores will be offered pay cuts and an hourly position as Sales and Services Associate Manager. The pay cut will be significant. Those conversations will happen in about 3 weeks from now. Exact timing of the pay cut has not been determined. It could be at the beginning of fiscal July or 90 days after the conversation. There will be no severance opt out packages offered.

Like Staples, OMax has to go hourly to avoid future lawsuits. Staples allowed Assistant Managers to make the same salary when they went hourly, just had to continue to work 45 hours a week. Where Staples assistants would work 45 hours a week and stay at the same pay rate, the assistants at OMax will fall into the ODepot structure. Lower pay rate, Associate Manager title, and only 32-35 hours a week. I just hope they understand that we assistants will probably have to get part time jobs to supplement our pay. Which means our availability will not be "open".

Is this true? Unbelievable? I hope this is not true, but at the same time - what can surprise us today...

Heard the same thing, the only difference is severance, but all other is the same
