I heard my district Houston is short 15 EXAs. Is this true? Who/how/when will they fill this shortage?

In my market, we are planning to fast-track high-potential candidates through the ASMT program to fill the ASM positions in 2013.

We have the same EXA issue in our area as well.....this was to be expected. Many more will be fired or leave before all this is over.

The EXA shortage is deliberate. They're not replacing them as they leave/quit to leave more openings for the remaining MGT's. Their goal, from now through 2014 (when MGT coding is retired), is to have enough total positions open between ASM-T and ASM to match the number of remaining MGT's meeting performance expectations, to minimize any unjust demoting or laying off. Phase 1 in 2013, as WaGEXA mentioned, is fast-tracking the highest performing MGT's through the ASM-T program to fill the ASM (formerly EXA) openings in question. The next phase will be choosing MGT's that will remain long-term ASM-T's, an average of 10 per district (2 per community). Finally, the last step in 2014, is demoting or getting rid of the leftovers, which ideally SHOULD only be those not meeting expectations, though it's a safe bet there will be some unfair exceptions to that. Anything beyond that is mostly speculation, but it's bound to be a mess.

And sorry to double post, but to the original poster - If any of the position changes I referred to are unfamiliar to you, it would be a good idea to read through the info on storenet as well as topics on this forum such as one titled "The Co-manager position and EXA/MGT layoffs". Storenet would be the place to start though, and IIRC, it's under [Learn] > [Field Transformation Website], and you generally want to read everything there, especially the link titled "Leap" or something like that.

Okay but how do you know mgt code will be retired in 2014 and not 2013?

That's also on storenet in a Q & A section in the same link I mentioned above.(Learn > Field Transformation website). ASM-T opens in 2013, and the remaining MGT's have until 2014 to secure an ASM-T opening or step down to SFL.

We have a huge EXA shortage in our district. Not a single one is above 5'8". We were authorized to order one extra orange ladder and two Rubbermaid step stools in every store.
