My friend’s husband (Mike) has been working in retail (big chain grocery store) for almost 15 years and he worked his way up to Assistant Store Manager and was told he is next in line for a promotion, Store Manager. To become a store manager a position needs to become available and it does not happen too often. Mike would be reassigned to new stores because the stores is in trouble and needs to be “cleaned up”. As Mike was being reassigned a new store, as Assistant Store Manager, he would be reassured he is up for promotion. Mike was being used, manipulated, to clean up stores, work duties would be more of a Store Manager and be told he is next for promotion. At first Mike thought, as he was transferred from store to store, this was a way to prove he is more than capable of handing a store and being a Store Manager. As time went on he was passed up for Store Manager because either the HR person was related to new Store Manager or because she is a female that was in the military. The store chain has been in financial crisis and eventually closed their doors. For a few years Mike was manipulated into cleaning up stores that were in need, looking back he wonders if they used him to help get these stores back on track and profitable. He was also treated unfairly because he chances of becoming a store manager were slim due to the lack of opportunities of the position being available. The district managers were not honest with him and knew they can count on him to get the hard jobs done.
