The union representing workers at The Warehouse says its members are frustrated by a lack of support from the company.
According to FIRST Union's Whanganui organiser, Kay Hearfield, The Warehouse told staff around the country it was considering making 180 managers and supervisors redundant.
Staff were presented with a proposal to respond to before Sunday, July 15.
Hearfield said there were 14 members who worked at The Warehouse who might lose their jobs.
She said she was meeting members to get their feedback on the proposal but many were uneasy about what was to come.
"[I'm] helping with tabling questions to the company so a response can be given," she said.
"There's frustration and a lot of uncertainty from members."
Many felt they were left in the lurch, according to Hearfield.
"There appears to be very little support provided by the company as a whole so far."
The Warehouse has been asked to comment.
