Big layoff yesterday with RSMs and RAMs

My district had already handled the excess managers by moving people around and coaching for promotions within the first 6-8 months of the merger, so we saw no layoffs yesterday. It seems like the higher ups got tired of DMs not doing it for the past 2 years so they just went ahead and pulled the trigger. Could be wrong, but that’s been my interpretation thus far.

Probably not far off for the reason why on most but some whom were effected were not over head count.

I left the company at the beginning of this year, but my former territory let go of seven RSMs yesterday - and each one of them should’ve been terminated years ago. No RAMs we’re impacted as the entire territory is under headcount on RAMs. There are a few low volume locations running with 1 RSM and 0 RAMs.

All 7 RSMs handed in their keys and will not be stepping down or seeking employment elsewhere. They’re taking their severance and walking away.

From what I was told by people I still keep in touch with, a RAM even quit yesterday as they were trying to transfer back home to be with their family. They were informed they’d have to step down to ME as there were no RAM spots available (RIP “Freier Law”). They quit the moment their RSM was about to leave for the day forcing the RSM to perform an open-to-close.

Sorry to hear that man. At least I know you guys got a decent package, but it’s still BS.

Having a strong union would have helped. I bet there were a few people kept with more recent hire dates and coincidentally with lower salaries.

Were you actually laid off or was your position eliminated and you were offered another position you didn't accept?

I'm an RSM at a TPR and I just got notification that my store is closing in 2 days. I've been in the industry for a while and this is my second store that has closed because of the merger or because of TPR's getting crazy buying each other. This shit is absolutely insane

Corporate. I wouldn’t worry about it at TPR unless the company you work for goes through a merger.

“I can see why they got rid of you and kept the other RAMs”

It looks like T-Mobile laid off all the excessive store managers and assistant managers yesterday. I thought T-Mobile was creating more jobs after the merger? All I’ve been seeing are people getting laid off.

Downsizing always comes after a merger.

If a company ever goes through a merger and acquisition, get your resume polished up and start look around for a new job. M&As always result in layoffs due to an excessive workforce since the new company has to downsize.

The only insight most people have publicly is retail, and most people believe that's all who works at TMO.

There are a ton of other positions that have openings on the corporate side.
