As we all know our nation is going through some trying times with the economy. I have seen it's effects on the people closest to me already and now it's come face to face with our small family. Every year Best Buy does a restructure where they "fine tune" it's operating model in order to stay ahead of the competition. Sometimes they add positions, sometimes they eliminate positions and other times they merge positions thus eliminating positions still. In my experience with these restructures my position with the company has been eliminated 3 different times, but fortunately they always had a place for me which is how I am able to stay optimistic about the future. A major restructure is in the works, and we are sure their will be some major changes and cutbacks. We don't know exactly what is going to happen, but whatIS confirmed is that the store John works at is moving down a revenue band. In his current store structure their are two Sales Manager positions (which is what he does) and with the new band their will only be room for one. Now he and the other Sales Manager will be undergoing an assessment so the GM can determine who stays in their role. This is not a pleasant thing for either party since both John and his co-worker, who I guess is now his competition, have families they support. We ask for prayers, that no matter what the turn out is, that their will be a position available for John because he truly loves his job and takes much pride in this career. We think we will know something within the next week or two, but for now we are in a stressful situation.
