Because there IS going to be a position called ASMT (assistant store manager trainee), which would be somewhat similar to the MGT/EXA role. However, there will be far fewer of these positions than there currently are of MGTs or EXAs - from what I have heard, there will only be an ASMT in the CL's store, so just a handful per district.

This may be all coming at us sooner than expected (i.e. 2-3 year transition)

I will speak slower. They are cleaning hous on bad EXA's and Mgt's that like to do nothing while they are at work. They will promote the Stl's that want to work and then replace the stls.
So if you are one of those people who like to sit around at work you will be able to do that from home once you have to reapply for your job and don't get it.

New Store Levels of MGMT
Store Manager
Asst. Store Manager- Salaried Position(Current Exa's)
Asst Store Manager Trainee-At Cl Store only and a floater or 2 for each community for vacations (Current MGT's that get selected for this)They punch the clock still

Shift Leader-most stores will have 3 of them-Job duties like current STL but can work unlimited nights (Store Manager picks who fills this role) Can be a current MGT,STL or any employee the manager thinks that can handle it.They also will be doing the overnights in 24 hour stores.

It's assumed that MGT's will be eligible for the ASM position in areas where there may not be enough EXA's. Admittedly, very few of these positions will be filled by current MGT's but it is possible.

The store manager gets to decide? What a load of crap. Store managers are bigger dead weight then the rest of management in many cases. They are useless outdated and the Least fair people to judge us. The last thing I want is a sm decidi my faith, unlike some of my counter parts my nose has never been up my sm's ass and never will be. Which puts me on the wrong side of the "performance" based job qualification.

you just need to accept the fact that you may not have a job when the new system is implemented. Have you worked for a store manager that you get along well with? Start with them if youd like to take a key holder position. Maybe go to a 24hr store. They will need more key holders. I for one will not takes key holder position. They can kiss my ass. I might take a lower paying job somewhere but I am done with all the BS I've put up with at Walgreens. No more nights, weekends, holidays. Things are going to work out for the best. I will be much happier. Too bad my wife will be stuck as an ASM.

From what it sounds like ..initially Sm's will be making decisions on who will be staying. (Can anyone say OMG) And then surviving cast members will be working for these Sm's that NOW will be even funner to work for now that they will be competing to save their own asses. The result will be pressuring exas and shift leaders to do more and threatening us because if we look bad, they look bad.And lower mgt will be more critical of frontenders because we won't let them slide because our performance is tied to them completing tasks. Going to be very stressful environments. Everyone is going to be throwing everyone under the bus daily.
