Not completely true! District Managers, Store Managers, Sales Specialists haven't been hit yet - and the RVP reorganization has yet to be announced.

Where? I didn't see District and Store Managers get hit? Zones, Admins, and some Ops were hit.

besides the most recent closing of seven or so stores a few weeks ago,they consolidated a couple of regions in the south a few monthes back. Store managers have been rotating out for the past seven monthes at a greater than normal rate.

I am in the South and I have not seen anything like that happen. We could use a few SM's & District Managers getting the boot!

It's either Theresa Anderson or Robert Wagner

Let's clear some things up: Theresa Anderson and Robert Wagner were SVP's, not RVP's. We have consolidated 21 regions to 14. This will put at least 7 RVP's and their staffs out of a job but, understand, they will be posting for the newly realigned regional jobs. Remember back when we became a GSA approved vendor? That relationship with the federal government means that our job posting and hiring practices must comply with federal guidelines and are subject to audit at any time. I won't go into the specifics of how that changed our practices but, suffice it to say, the good ole boy network better be damned careful about "grandfathering" anybody into their old position. Obviously, the realignment has to affect the districts, if for no other reason than continuity. Why would we reduce RVP's, SVP's and leave the district managers alone? Not gonna happen. This layer of management is where you will find a lot of fat and a lot of incompetence.

My bad, I wasn't paying close enough attention to the "R"vp and just focused on "got the boot"

You're not too bright. All your posts are just plain silly. Sorry to have to point that out, but you really should keep your mouth closed. Do you even know what "my bad" means????

First off, I can guarantee I'm brighter than you.
Secondly, I haven't read one of your posts that has contributed anything other than to critisize someone elses posts.
and lastly "my bad" is slang for "my fault" which on occassion, I am at fault.

Any mopre news on the reorganization-I have heard that the re-interviews for the RVP's and staff are done-that an outside organization will make the selections in October and then they will start notifying people. I would assume-and I say assume that the DM group will take the next hit-and is there a lot of turds there-good ole boys
