In order to be considered for the new SFL slot a STL must have made a 3.0 on their last evaluation and other hourly team members must have a 4.0 or better on their last evaluation. The joke is that not too many people (who aren't MGTnow) qualify under these conditions. This is the "able" part of the equation on whether or not WAG can get enough employees to staff the SFL position who are willing and able. Look for store managers to start inflating the evaluation scores of their employees JUST to that they have a half a chance of filling the needed slots. This my WAG friends is a total JOKE!!!

The other qualification is that they cant have been written up for anything in the last 12 months to apply.

lol -- I wonder if that will keep management from writing potential SFL employees up

I would say that depends on whom they have in mind, up until a few months ago I had both of those as an stl. I heard that as soon as I left (so to speak) the sba was training for a position but noone knew what. Oh well, I'm far better off without the stress.

Are MGT's under the same scope? A 3.0 or higher and no writeups in 12 months in order to qualify for a SFL position? I saw in an earlier post someone said they had been instructed not to score certain MGT's above a 2.9. So I will guess that might very well be the expectations.

That was not in the information that I printed out. It was not in the FAQs. Here's what comes the closest.
"Q: Who is eligible to apply for the shift lead role? A:......... Additionally, current MGTs maybe offered the opportunity to step down to the shift lead role in certain circumstances."
The word "offered" is sort of important. These MGTs may be ones who are at least half-way decent but fall below 3.0. One must take into account that PIP (Performance Improvement Plans) interviews will be done by the SM to those MGTs going below a 3.0. I rated above a 3 on my last evaluation and, even then, I felt my SM was trying to "pull things out of his hat" in order to make my score lower (i.e. being extremely nit picky about things that had happened 9-10 months before that he never mentioned to me before the evaluation).

We ere not given info about standards for a MGT so think this does not apply to them.

Of course this is all subject to change as we all know.

This may not be right but I can tell you if a Store Manager has an employee they want to be shift lead I have no doubt they will get a 4.0 on next eval this year.

How hard will it be as a previous MGT (depending on the attitude about less pay, of course) to step into the role of SFL. If the SFL isn't going to be making any real decisions, etc.

Imagine a regular customer who knows that the MGT is (or was) in that position comes in and asks a question that a SFL is not allowed to answer. How do you think the customer will react when he or she says "I'll have to get that answer for you from my ASMT and they will get back with you tomorrow??

The very notion of the SFL not being involved in anything to do with "management" is insane to say the least. As SalV quoted an MVP from a Roadshow meeting - "yes, they will be doing the same job for less pay." Hey, at least the MVP was honest.

Exactly why SFL should be reserved for MGTs who just dont give a damn and they are only good at doing list stuff. They dont know how to do ledgers or any office work at all and/or are not that good with customer service skills. I know plenty!

This is also why we're given 2 years or so to figure this out, they would rather have a lot of MGT's leave for another job rather than demote them.

Review at my store was all set up by the dm. My store manager said she wasn't able to score anyone higher because the dm wouldn't let her. My exa worked his butt off for nothing but a kick in the a** score.

What thread was that in? I've been searching for it!

I was really shocked when I got my most recent review. I had been working hard for months getting worklists done, keeping my bays perfect, had a nice working relationship with the MGR, was great with customers, but ended up getting a pretty lousy review. Something's wrong with this picture.

I'm pretty sure dm knew ahead of time they already pick who going to get interview and who isn't. From what I heard on the forums you need a high score so being that case that's why you got your low score.

red, is also correct, the reviews are typically fixed. A couple years back, the adsm candidates were chosen before the application's were even sent in.

Yes, the way the reviews went in 2011 were very fixed and the SM did try to pull supid stuff out of her ass....and how would she know anyway considering her scrawny ass never left the office unless it was for a hair appointment. Yeah leaving in the middle of the day to get her hair done and not giving a crap about the store.

I have a question. I was promoted to MGT last January. I got transferred to a different store when all interviews were being conducted for reviews. Being in the new store for only 3 weeks, my store manager put "too new" for everything because he didn't know me well enough to rate me. So what happens in a situation like that?

My store manager last year seemed to have this "hidden list" of things. These were things which he said I did (and he's right - I did do) but he didn't bother to mention it at the time. Why in the hell did he wait 9 or more months to "coach me" on these matters? The fact is he was keeping this list so he could "pull it out his of his ass" in order for my evaluation to not look so good -- as directed by his higher-ups. My once 3.8-4.0 ratings decreased to a 3.1. My fellow MGTs said that the same thing was done to them as well. It's as if they have a predetermined score for you and they have to rig the evaluation to come up with that score. I'm not saying this is true of all SMs. But, in my case and that of my fellow MGTs, that seems to be the case.

The MGT qualifications for ASMt is a 2.7 or higher and no write-ups for 12 months. This was in an email from the DM. Our district average is 2.6. The DM said the 2.7 cut half the MGTs out of the running. The DMs and CLs comprised a short list of people that qualify now to be interviewed but will actually rely on the next evaluation. So get started now and improve yourself, if you need to; maintain your good score.

Well I do know of 2 MGTs who were rated as a 2.6 and the last thing I could ever imagine would be for them to even be considered for a ASM-T slot.
