I heard they chopped all their assistant managers. Assistant managers used to be the people on their way to opening their own stores, and with no stores to open, they cut the whole pay grade… which means there’s a whole class of their most competent people chopped so they can be replaced by people who suck but are lower on the pay scale.
This is Circuit City-firing-their-senior clerks low, and I want no part of it any more.
This makes me sad. For all my ranting about the Clover, I remember Starbucks for bringing good coffee to the armpit where I grew up and kicking off the quality revolution. I’ve held that stock forever.
