    MEGATHREAD 2018-2019 Store Modernization Megathread

    They, those that sit above us in shadows, have been saying this for the last 15 years and unless I have been on one seriously long bad trip it has yet to happen. To reconfigure the DC's for what is really just a fad would be the most complete and insane thing to do. so expect it too happen by...

    MEGATHREAD 2018-2019 Store Modernization Megathread

    Because we as a company don’t know jack about logistics. And to do this we would need to redo our DCs. This is a pipe dream. An unrealistic pipe dream that would drive us to ruin should we try it.

    As some one who has worked in fast food. This is oh so true. The weird ones come out as the day turns.

    BTS 2019, This Time with Feeling

    I want to keep taking the survey multiple times up to and beyond the stores headcount. just so I can see the aftermath of all the visits that would happen from all those bogus surveys. it would be oh so wrong but oh to see the "leadership" frog marched out of the store would be an amazing thing.

    as you said Karma is the great wheel of life we all get our time on the bottom. But what you described is not karma it is the management at your store being petty and vindictive. which btw is exactly like the brave new world of Target. you and Mean Girls had a chance to rise above and be...

    MEGATHREAD 2018-2019 Store Modernization Megathread

    Seriously??? Most people in the BR have been there for years. It’s why we were hired. To think some one punted to a new work area will be 100% knowledgeable in that area is pretty silly. And the fact that you are making fun of and or laughing at them is down right heinous but completely within...

    Logistics Global Issue

    If you STOd it with a PDA it was in the location you scanned it into. The PDAs were not killing BRLA if anything they were keeping it from the hellscape that we are finding ourselves in at the moment. Pulling to the picture means what’s not located in the waco will stay unlocated. The PDAs...

    Logistics Global Issue

    So there is a chance me leadership was being honest? Well that’s a shock to the system. But even more troubling to be honest.

    Logistics Global Issue

    yeah it is BS. that aisle has been messed up for was long as we've been E2E/Store Modernization/DBO. I think that when the sole remaining Backroom TM did an Empty Location report on the aisle and roughly 50% was not located a "Global Issue" was the Leadership's response. BWHAHHA nope. More...

    Logistics Global Issue

    So there was a “global issue” overnight. Or rather that’s what we were told, or maybe it was the night before meh don’t really matter. IIRC there’s going to be another attempt to fix it sometime today. But any who… Our toy aisle was unlocated, then automagically relocated but not all of it...
