If I tell you then you will tell my SM and I might get into trouble and we or I mean I wouldn't want that to happen. Free speech is not alright here you know that.

I'm worried for the EXA/future ASMs. Wouldn't they just demote the SM to the role of ASM if they did away with SM role? It's not like they'd fire them all. So what happens to EXA? Makes no sense to me.
Puzzle me this:

by definition ASM means "assistant store mgr" if there's no store mgr who in the hell are they assisting? Huh.....I'm waiting

***dipshit, how bout you let him respond before you say uhhhh im waiting... get a clue homo

they would actually assist the cl in running the store... if that were to happen.

puzzle me this: why did they call it store team lead.. by definition they were not in charge, or leading anybody... we also let them run the safe but not have authority to discipline anybody

CL=community leader
ASM=Assistant store mgr
you haven't convinced me the dots connect..and I thought this topic was about store mgrs being eliminated not about what stl's or sfl's do.....dip shit!
why does everyone from NY have such a bad attitude? do you'll hate your momma's or something?

and the homo thing, grow the hell up

Okay, I'm confused (again), will there be a Store Manager and an ASM? Or is it just the CL and an ASM? Who knows the answer?

Wasson probably knows the answer but I doubt if he'll be responding. If they, at a whim, will change a title, they'll certainly be able to change the name of "Community Leader" to "Community Manager". It's not about job titles really, it's about position structure.

Not sure about the homo reference,but we don't hate, we just state the sad facts and the sorry state of affairs we all face at Walgreens from the SM to the cashiers. Also we don't hide where we are from because we benotafraid like some.

No they wouldn't demote they are not dumb, buy them out give them a serveance , they should just have a requirement to have a 4 year degree to be in a sm poisition - this would disqualify probably 70% of current store managers. Why would a sm do the same job with more responsibility for less pay. Doesn't make sense. The best position to have right now is CL, then exa. Let the back stabbing begin.

Being an EXA is the worst position to have now because you will have SM's that have alot of time in and don't want to loose it trying to apply for ASM and you will have go-getter MGT's trying to move up in the world. The EXA's will be squeezed from both sides.
"No they wouldn't demote they are not dumb". Really??? This whole re-structure is dumb,but it is what model alot of retailers are going to so why should walgreens be any different?
Divide and conquer. It's really bad business,but it is very successful short term.
This has been in the works for years. They knew when they were down building large scale this was the route that they were going to take. The economy crashing just gave them something to hide behind.
They don't take a dump without a planning it well in advance. It's business not personal,but it still hurts. Its like finding out the person you have been married to for 20 years was just using you for what you could do for them and casting you aside without as much as a thank you.

you won't see them throwing out exa/asm or storemanagers positions. Walgreens paid way to much to train them. It would be silly not have someone accountable for the store. CLs WILL NEVER RUN 3-4 STORES. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

Right now SMs should be focusing on engaging employees and working on calming the growing rage mgts are building up. The employee satisfaction surveys are conming up and you can garentee the SMs will be 100% targeted for bad survey results "not corporate". Good luck to all SMs because the fire from these upcomming surveys will burn you all more than you think. On a positive note you might be able to play the card to your leads that your bonus is being butchered and handed partly to them based on customer satisfaction... ROFL. Understaffed, employees demoted and pay slashed, and your bonuses diced up abd haned out to staff... great motivation for high customer service. LOL.

Rite Aid has decided that it doesn't work...They did try having one SM for 3 to 4 stores, but they're stopping that. They did it in the Southern divisions and it turned into a gigantic mess. My husband is a SM of a Rite Aid which is how I know.

Store managers are in complete denial about their impending doom. The company is just using them to swing the axes in the near future until the dirty work is done. Isn't it suspicious that the early leaks about this restructuring did not include their position, but the recent Official Kool-Aid from Corporate slapped them in there?

Why in the world would the CL start visiting the other stores in his community 60% of his time if he wasn't intended to slowly take control of the week-to-week operation of those stores? Why would the ASM position require more coaching of employees if the ASM wasn't going to be the new day-to-day "boss" of the store employees? Another chain has a very similar management structure to the one we're building towards, and although they suck hard, our bigwigs are blinded by the lower cost of their payroll.

Bye bye, store managers! There were a few great ones who worked hard and led well but the vast majority have been chatting with their colleagues on the office phone or with their favorites in the stockroom and aisles for the last hundred years on everyone's dime.

Agreed. What the SMs should bear in mind is this - the lies they tell are different at every level!
