I guess everyone has heard that assistant managers are going to loose their positions! Yikes, I have only been with the company since Christmas but heck I can't believe whats going on. Here's an idea instead of getting rid of the employees who care and love their job get rid of the newbie....Alex Smith and free up a couple million dollars so we can keep our jobs!

What? That seriously can't be possible. It would be damn near impossible for the store to operate without an assistant manager. But then again, Pier 1 has done some stupid stuff lately.

Angela, where are you getting this information from? The latest has been a slight cut in management hours for the end of this quarter only. I haven't heard anything more that. Could you please explain? I'd rather not have people stressing about something completely untrue.

I agree.You need to give us specifics.This is beyond far fetched.It is impossible for that to happen.Heck we can run store without regionals even store managers but the front line soldiers need to stay on the front lines.You need to follow up or dont come back with that.
That will only crate panic.

Whoa everyone. Don't shoot the messenger. I only saw this on facebook. Maybe that assistant was lowest on the totem pole and because of the cutbacks on the hours, maybe they just had to take her position. Hey don't get me wrong, I don't want this to happen either. I love my job so much I don't want to be demoted either! But hey you must admit the five hours kills the paycheque.

I can't believe they are getting rid of all the assistant managers!! Who is going to run the store, open/close, the store when the managers are off?? I agree with Angela from Canada ..what they need to do is get rid of Alex Smith and keep his millions to make them more profitable; obviously he doesn't have to worry about living paycheck to paycheck.
