One thing I may add to this is be mindful of the musical chairs that is being played especially night MGTs. You may think you have time to decide but you might be at a disadvantage if you decide say three months from now to pursue the ASM-T role to someone who decides to do it today. And anyone interested in the SFL position make it known now as MGTs quit. Bottom line is the race has begun.

What are some of the numbers from ya'll out there in terms of the number of current MGT's in your district vs the number of ASM-T slots that'll eventually be available.

My district needs to fill 12 ASM-T positions,and there are approx 45 MGT's in my district.

Those are tough odds as far as i'm concerned...i'm sure that high number of MGT's will drop from 45 by this fall but i wonder how WAG will handle the hiring process of this position? I assume it will be available to apply on Store Net. Then what? You hope to get an interview maybe? With the CL or the DM? What will they be looking for? Whats the pay?
~ too many question marks still for me. Not sure if i wanna push on and continue to be a part of this company or move on at this point.

Guys, they've already changed the wording on the field transformation website. On 3/10the FAQ's said "if you are not selected for the program in 2013, you will remain an MGT and can continue to apply to ASM-T openings as they become available." It now says you can continue to apply through 2013. I got an email from my DM that says that MGT's that aren't accepted by the end of 2013 will be terminated. I just want you guys to know what's really going on so you can make an educated decision. You've worked too hard to be lied to. They need to cut numbers going forward and it's not the touchy-feely transformation they are telling you.

By the way I am in nyc also, I dont think its legal just to terminated a mgt just because you wasnt chosen. also there are about 100 mgts in the district and only asmt will be chosen, is this true??? it really sond like they have it set up for us to take the pay cut. The odds are against us!!!!

The 3/10 wording didn't make specific any "end game" time for this process all it said was "you will remain an MGT and can continue for apply to ASM-T openings as they become available." Now, they're clarifying a cut off point in time that the FAQ didn't mention.

I'll have to go to my store and do a 2nd print out. It would not surprise me in they did drop the evaluation score requirement (3 for an STL and 4 for clerks/department heads). It wasn't part of reality. They would have cut out 80% of the potential applicants for the SFL position from the non-MGT ranks. It could have been that DMs and SMs informed the idiots at corporate at how unrealistic it was or, maybe, they read about their idiocy here on topix.

My store net still shows 2.7 for MGT'S to become asmt and 3.7 for STL/sims/department leads to become SFL. Must meet these review requirements to move into the new spots..

What part of storenet show the 2.7 / 3.7 requirement? Those types of scores never appeared on the FAQs - Field Transformation. I just did a "search" on the 3/10 copy.

page 3 of 8 says: all stl/Simms in the district who were rated a2.7 or above on their last performance review will be considered for the shift lead role. All other hourly team members (e.g., service clerks, photo specialists,ect) with a3.7 or above on their last performance review will also be considered for the role. Also, current mgts may be offered the opportunity to step down to the shift lead role in certin circumstances. Of there are no qualifying internal candidates, external applicants will be considered.

Okay so by the end of 2013, if I have not been chosen for the ASM-T position or stepped down, I will be terminated. What company gives their employees 21 months to either get promoted or have to take a pay cut? Usually there's NO notice...

Ok, now it makes sense. When you said "dropped" I thought you meant "did away with". What you meant was they lowered the requirements ----- STLs from a 3 to a 2.7 and other hourly team members from a 4 to a 3.7. I bet you they eventually lower it even more.

Ok guys, I need some help.

I work in a district that doesn't believe in permanent overnight managers, so as a result, we don't have any in my 24 hour store. They chose the 2 managers with the lowest tenure, and offered them the choice that the overnight MGTs are being offered. I have NEVER struggled with a decision so much in my life. I'm having a really hard time getting straight answers about what the options really are. I understand the move to overnight bit. Move to overnight, become an SFL, take the paycut in 90 days. What happens if I decide not to take the SFL position? I know I'd get transferred, but the way I interpreted what my SM told me, I might get moved every couple weeks or so. Is this accurate? My district is VERY spread out, so this concerns me.

Then, the other MGT that got the same offer, told me that he was told if you don't get ASM-T next year, you'd be forced to take the SFL position anyways, or if there aren't any SFL spots left, leave the company or take a lesser position (SVC, PST, etc.).

Please help!
