Will the DC’s be rolling out On Key Seniors in 2022?
How is that going to drive continuity and consistency within the departments? We have OM’s all over the place now with their expectations, but at least with an SOM, there is some show of fair and consistent expectations across the board, that we are all held to the same basic standard. SOM running a key, will not have the same level of expectation for any one department, as OM‘s won’t be held accountable to the same standards within their teams. The same person who brainstormed “let’s hire sight unseen based off questions on the application” must also be behind this. Rather than trying to keep one SOM happy and folllow their vision, OM will now turn into pseudo politicians, trying to walk the line with all of them, good and bad. So my job is gonna suck even more in 2022. GREAT.
There wasn’t 1 SOM for the building, there was 1 per department (5).
The number of SOMs doesn’t change, they’re just responsible for every department on a certain key now.
Makes sense. I think our SOM is coming to B1 & B2 at the beginning of the year and A1 & A2 will get a new SOM.Current DC Hierarchy is Warehouse Workers/Associates > Lead Warehouse Workers > Operations Managers > Senior Operations Managers > Operations Director > Site Director.
Operations Managers are are split up by department and shift. Senior Operations were specifically department based but now they will be key specific and all the OMs on that key will report to them. So instead if an Outbound SOM or Inbound SOM you'd have a B1 and B2 SOM.
