Hi Ladies,
For those of you that don't know, I am a manager of a clothing store and found out over a week ago that I am going to be moved stores again.
The problem is that the manager that is in the store has been on a probationary contract since July and it ends in January. She still hasn't been told that she hasn't passed the probation and will be getting demoted back down to assistant manager in the same store.
I am in that store today in the VM role (I'm the state visual merchandiser as well) and I have to keep my mouth shut!!!
Hopefully I don't spill the beans.

The State manager hasn't been in the state for a couple of weeks. She also looks after QLD and last week was there doing store visits. This week she is in Melbourne with all the other state and area managers sorting out our Christmas trading hours and everything else.
All of us managers are off to Sydney for a 3 hour training session on Tuesday morning (we fly out on Monday and get back Tuesday night) and technically, the one who is going to be stood down shouldn't be going as it's for managers only, but because she hasn't been told yet, they are still sending her. It's going to be hard to spend 2 days with her as well.

That's really tough. It's right up there with outright lying, really, and I can understand why that might be uncomfortable. It's not fair that they are dragging it out for her, but I do also understand why they might be doing that.

I was well behaved and didn't let slip.
It was hard when she was saying that she just wanted the boss to tell her what is going and when she will get an Assistant Manager.
