    The Things Guests Do/Pet Peeves Thread

    Cannot stand shit like that. One time when I was on registers, this mombie with her two kids also decided to let them "help" with the card reader, causing issues. The guy behind her got impatient and yelled at her to control her children and stop holding up the line. She turned red and pursed...

    Specialty Ethics Training .... Joke!

    They just did ours in a huddle. A sheet for everyone to sign was passed around while one of the leads read off all the questions. Don't know how they had anyone who missed the huddle complete it.

    Yeah, they can. They put me on softlines sales floor once, which would have been fine if it had just been working pulls, but they wanted me to set stuff... had no idea how to do that at that point. Lucky for me, there was a TM there who they'd scheduled for Instocks who rarely did it and also...

    C’mon Spot, Let’s Go Green!

    Surprising there aren't recycling bins at your store. I think we have three - front doors, break room, receiving. We got in some 80% post-consumer recycled bags for the registers a while back, but we must've only gotten one shipment of them in and then they were gone. Haven't received any more...

    Can an ETL force me to do cashier training?

    Whoops, I had no idea. This happened probably 3 or 4 years ago, so I don't really know about many changes that happen regarding the lanes. They used to schedule me some cashier shifts because I always had good speed scores, but the only time I ever got RedCard signups was if someone had already...

    Can an ETL force me to do cashier training?

    Everyone has to be cashier trained, they told us. It doesn't necessarily mean they'll start giving you tons of cashier shifts if that's what you're afraid of. And if they do, well... they stopped scheduling me to cashier because I never got RedCard signups.

    Empty Shelves

    And for as much as I audit, or used to, I still came across stuff like that enough times. Maybe not to the extent of 200 days, but still. I used to do the all store audit every Sunday... I scanned everything except beauty, electronics, and market. My accuracy and counts were always excellent...

    Empty Shelves

    Leads told us we weren't doing audit anymore because "DC already knows what we're out of and it's redundant." Yep. The only audits anyone is allowed to do is to check the suspect task lists. Instead, they want us to just check outs in EXF to make sure there aren't any in the back.

    Empty Shelves

    I think the empty shelf problem is a bit worse since they made us stop doing audits. There are always some products that would take 3 months to get more of regardless of how many times they were scanned, but in general, I still think audit helped. Our baby TM said the baby food section has gone...

    Taking a personal day

    I just ask off for one once in a while. I work every weekend which I wouldn't mind except the noise level is atrocious and I'm pretty sound sensitive. A couple of times a year, I will pick a random Saturday to take off. For the reason, I'll note that I have various plans, but I'm really just...

    Who recently quit at your store?

    A former plano team member quit. She had not planned to. With plano team being eliminated, so were most of her hours - not sure what work center they were going to assign her to. So she got a part-time job elsewhere and told our leads she needed to change her availability to accommodate that...

    Logistics The Flow/Inbound thread: Too many REEEEEpacks Edition 📦📦📦📦

    I like doing the H&B repacks. Not a fan of doing the rest.

    Not Fast Enough

    One of our TMs was just told they were too slow and was really upset about it. That person is not as fast some, true. Physically, they aren't able to move as fast as others. But they are always working, always helping guests as best they can, never standing around wasting time. Meanwhile...

    No vehicles

    That's exactly why I keep mine to use for backstock. I can take it into the aisle with me and it goes much faster than dealing with trying to fit a U-boat among all the others back there.
