    MEGATHREAD Flexible Fulfillment

    We've been getting crushed OPU and Ship. Around triple our normal ship volume. Missing flex goals left and right and we have 6 people when normally we have 2. Obviously OPU is a local area thing but I wonder how they're routing the ship stuff. We only have 1 pack station so i figured we'd...

    Oh no, I just meant it could easily start looking like crap if they aren't spaced well. So as long as it looks ok, I doubt anyone would care. Hell, even if it didn't look good, it seems that half of the TLs don't even notice.

    I attached mine, mainly because I followed the recommended placements and I think a few of them kind of needed to be attached to end up in the right spot and I didn't feel like moving the clip on the ceiling again. I think the main thing it did though was keep the "front" of the flat stars (the...

    Yeah they didn't send me any dump bins. Also didn't send a few of the shippers I needed, and a couple of other fun mixups.

    I'm so glad we violated corporate's explicit directions and had most of the set done last week. Took a lot of the pressure off when all we have to do this week is set lunchboxes, finish signing the area, and of course push push push.

    Yeah, I didn't like the way that felt either. I also didn't like that that foam tape was the only thing holding the outer pieces to the middle. So I put an extra set of wires on the outer and inner pieces just so if that tape does give, they'll still be attached to the ceiling.

    You mean you can't find yours? Mine came in later in the week via FedEx, it wasn't on the signing pallet.

    Usually either Monday or Tuesday. But I actually just got a message from my TL, looks like they came around 10 minutes after I left today. We ended up with 2 oversized pallets and one regular, all looked slam full and pretty tall. So that's a relief. That gives me 3 days to get it all built...

    Has anyone else not received anything at all for BTS yet? I'm starting to get a little worried seeing that a couple of you at least got a partial shipment last week. Makes me think that was a 'special' shipment since the normal signing pallet was the Project Moonbeam stuff and the rest of...

    Can you order by kit #? I tried searching for it before on SAP and got nada.

    Haha I thought the exact same thing. I bet it is just a list of kit numbers.

    MEGATHREAD 2018-2019 Store Modernization Megathread

    That's basically what we were doing during the time other stores were piloting modernization. I called it the "hybrid modernization" and I think it worked pretty well, for the most part. We were at least coming clean with the trucks and I don't recall any major issues like empty shelves and...

    Ahh the overhead. That's what I'm missing. I figured there would be some type of gateway with a new launch. That's one thing they need to change - the kit numbers are meaningless beyond checking a box vs a packing slip. If I find out that a particular box is missing, I can't use that kit...

    Question about my schedule for next week, any info would be appreciated

    Executive Team Lead.. Basically, Targetspeak for Assistant Manager. Your store size would dictate how many of these you have and exactly what areas they cover, but I believe most stores have an ETL-General Merchandise/Food who would be over pretty much everything except Front End, Softlines...

    MEGATHREAD Flexible Fulfillment

    Our closer usually comes in at either 3 or 330. So they usually spend the first hour helping the openers/mid (if we had one that day) either finish packing or cover OPU while the mid packs. Once they are by themselves (which is usually after the first 30 minutes or hour, unless it's one of the...

    Rescheduled orientation

    Did they say why? My orientation was rescheduled because it took longer for my background check to come back for whatever reason. I was sure I was going to get a letter saying my credit sucked and they rescinded the offer. But nope, it really was just a delay and everything went fine.

    Question about my schedule for next week, any info would be appreciated

    Wow, we were told that under modernization we couldn't be scheduled for or accept/trade any shifts that weren't under our same ETL. So a GE Expert could do Fulfillment or Consumables, but not frontend. Guess that's either not a real rule, isn't enforced, or maybe since OP is new they're...

    Ok that's going to be the problem. If they aren't specifically broken out as signing, I'm not getting them. And since there is no signing workcenter anymore, they're as good as gone.

    Does anyone know what the hours mentioned in the June addendum for non-pog signing and fixture room upkeep are listed as? Apparently leadership at my store isn't seeing them on their breakdown so that's why they haven't been using them.

    Yeah I haven't been in the loop for a while so I was mistaken. We are setting next week but the official set time is the following Sunday. We are just hoping to have it all set and ready so it can come directly off the truck to the shelves. Apparently we are getting a double, with the 2nd...
