"I've been with SBUX for four years now. A friend that works at another store down the road told me she heard I was transferring to a different location. I corrected her, telling her that I was only going over there to cover one shift. However, when I arrived at that store to help them cover in an emergency, the store manager greeted me and said, "You must be the shift supervisor that's transferring over here, it's nice to meet you."
"This is all very strange to me because my SM has said absolutely nothing about transferring to me. Further, we're understaffed at my present location, especially during closing shifts which I cover five days a week. On top of that, of all the shifts at my store I live the furthest from the supposed transfer location.
"Has anyone else had a similar experience? Does anyone know why a high performing shift who leads his store's coffee master program would be forced to transfer? Any ideas on what corporate policy is regarding this situation?
"Just wondering, I can't seem to get a hold of my SM. Thanks!" Anyone?
