Customer Question
I work on Ft. Benning...
I work on Ft. Benning for AAFES as a food court manager. I have been assigned here for almost 13 months. I was given an AOR (area of responsibility) that earned the company 6.1 million in sales by managing 10 facilities. When I came here the GM wanted for me to rid the company of a manager in my AOR. I was told that due to poor performance this manager had to be placed on a PIP (performance improvement plan). For various reasons this person was place on the PIP, however made it through the PIP period which was 3 months satisfactorily. My GM was angry that I had allowed this person to satisfactorily complete the PIP period, and told me that I would pay for it. A few months later another food court manager was going to retire, and AAFES decided to make her position a PB5/1 or GS 13 equivalent grade. I then went to our HRM and stated that the retiring managers AOR did not meet all of the qualifications to change it to the PB5/1 grade, but my AOR did. I then said if they are considering changing that areas grade mine should also be increased since I have already been working at that level for a year. The old GM got orders to move to Colorado and a new GM came to replace him. The first week that the new GM was here he requested a meeting with me, and during the meeting he stated that the leadership feels that I am overwhelmed with my responsibilities. He then said since you are overwhelmed with your responsibilities we are going to rearrange your AOR. The new GM said I will have only 6 facilities now instead of the ten that I had before which brings me down to well below the minimum level of sales to warrant the grade increase. I have no disciplinary actions, or history of any wrong doing. I have also managed to increase sales for my AOR by 4.5%, increase gross profit by 8.0%, decrease personnel cost by 6%, increase productivity by 12.77%, and increase direct operating profits by 661.5% for the first quarter of this year. Those are very good numbers and in no way warrant this type of treatment. Can you please help me fight to regain what I have worked the last 30 years to achieve.
