Area PSA Manager

United States

#1 Aug 12, 2012
Heard a rumor that the Area PSA Manager position will be eliminated this up coming February. If it true, that's good news because my Area PSA Manager does absolutely nothing except play on his lap top in the dm office or training room. All the PSA s hate him. You ll never see him help on any sets. He just walks around thinking he's somebody when he's not. The cock suckers name is Ty by the way. Has anyone else heard these rumors?

APSS or APSA Lead?
If APSS, who is going to run teams? Market Director?
If lead, who cares...I actually heard not too long ago some talk that the lead might eventually go to Salary?

They aught to get rid of all the AOMs and AIMs. Those two do absolutely nothing to benefit our stores not to mention mine smell bad. We have this tub of lard named Marty for our AOM who smell like a horses ASS constantly and has an articulate ability of fainting goat. The guys stupid. And our AIM Shelly looks like she's been chewing on rocks with breath that smells like some straight up Dog Shit. I swear she chews on Turds. Can some one please tell her, her breath smells like shit. The women needs to invest in a dentist.

Wait a while for the stores to get 100% after all this LEF stuff and you'll see area position start to disappear. The evidence is the lack of these positions in other retailers.

To unknown,

Who really knows? I have not heard that rumor at all. I may disagree with our APSS from time to time, but he seems like a genuine guy who cares about his staff. After talking with him, I wouldn't take his job for anything. A lot of BS and the primary contact and fireman. APSS's have a lot on their plate, talk to yours and you may see a different perspective.

I am NOT defending yours by any means, but if you think they are going to spend a LOT of time on resets, I don't see it, that's what the lead does here, hands on with the crews.

Just my 2 cents....

Evidence? Ok how about home depot? Im pretty sure they are a pretty big retailer. They also have merchandising teams. If depot does it then so will lowes. Lowes also saves boat loads of money having those area psa's.

My phone caused a typo. Sorry. Position was supposed to be plural. I didn't mean just district psa management. I ment several area positions. Not that long ago Walmart had many different market positions. Then one day they eliminated all but the market HR, LP, and the market manager. Any job in a company that has unclear expectations, grey lines of responsability, and quite frankly, any job that doesn't keep someone with more to do than they can get done at a comfortable pace, is on the chopping block when costs need to be cut. In good times jobs are created for all kinds of things because a company can afford them. When times are tough, the fat is cut first.
