Anyone know when the new step will happen? Has anyone been ask to step down yet? Are there other options if you don't want to step down?

The Field Transformation site should have the answers to most of your questions.

If you are an MGT performing to expectations, then you have nothing to worry about.

If you are an MGT performing above expectations, get ready for your ASMT interview.

If you are an MGT performing below expectations, I would suggest you find ways to improve (quickly).

They sent out a letter in my area letting us know when the timeframe to apply is, what the qualifications are for it and outlined the process more or less.

Try inquiring to you store manager?

4 out of 7 assistants in my community have had write up in the past 12 months. 1 has had 2, but it was over a year ago. 7 stores in my community, this should be interesting....

No write ups in the last year and meets expectations or higher on last evaluation. That's a 3.0 or higher. The only other options are sfl or quit

They make sure that you have write ups in order to save money for the store and the manager gets a bigger bonus by saving payroll

I have not seen this. Just don't break any policies and they can't write you up. They can't make something up that didn't happen.

The thing is most asst. managers will not find good paying jobs at what they are getting paid at right now (most are making around 19 dollars/hour) which is why many of them are sticking around while lamenting rather than actually leaving. Now SFLs who are getting paid 11.50 an hour can find higher paying jobs even in this economy :) Which is why SFL positions will see a much higher turn over because you will be attracting less serious people and there are other jobs out there paying equal to more while this is not so for the old asst. manager wage...

Right you are. Right now I won't take a new job that pays less but soon my current job will be paying less. That is a game changer for me. If I can make the same amount working a day shift out of retail and have my nights and weekends free, why would I not do it? I'd still need to make up for the lost income, but its a lot easier to work around a day job than a retail job.

This exactly my thoughts. Lots of other retailers have department heads. Most I checked out start out at around $10-11 an hour. One weekend day 8-5 and one night shift which means only working until 8 pm. Why would you work a really messed up schedule with lots more responsibility when you can work a relatively set schedule with less responsibility for around the same pay? A dollar on the hour less only amounts to $40 a week before taxes and in my opinion the schedule itself would more than make up for that extra $40 a week.

I took a lower paying job just to escape Walgreens.. About a 1.25 a hour paycut. Now before June I will have a store making 49 to 57k a year.
