Currently there are two team members (myself included) on the team leader bench at my store, with one more heavily in the pipeline.
Late last week a team leader position for logistics got posted on the hiring board and neither of us have heard anything either way about it.
I have a weird feeling they are looking around externally for the position to be filled. Anyone ever have a similar situation at their stores?
You have to also take into consideration that other stores in your District may have candidates on the bench longer; and that are more qualified for the positions available. External ( outside the Company ) candidates aren't your only competition for a position.
Truly, just my OWN opinion....I'm a proponent of promotions/transfers going hand-in-hand. I think it helps you, as the promotee, become better, stronger with different Leadership; in a different setting. You can "start" your new role strictly as a Leader...... not as a "former" TM. You see things differently from store-to-store. You can implement your ideas and plans at your new store; something that's harder to do at your current store.
