    MEGATHREAD Signing Tips, Tricks and Quips (along with howls of despair)

    Anyone know if those little plastic clips that go on the "knuckle" signholders are able to be ordered by themselves? Can't find an item number, would be super useful if I could get some of those because I only have a few signs left that have them.

    MEGATHREAD Signing Tips, Tricks and Quips (along with howls of despair)

    Wow, I got all 3. I'm surprised that our store actually got everything if others didn't. Especially after this past week I figured our store was cursed. Wonder if certain sizes of CSE that aren't available yet or something..

    MEGATHREAD Signing Tips, Tricks and Quips (along with howls of despair)

    Oops. Ours has been on the shelf for 2 days now. We did check at the time to make sure it wasn't street dated in the system. Ah well, the decision was made by higher levels of management. They didn't want the section sitting empty.

    Good point. Not sure why I didn't think to check that. I was just so thrown off by the reserved thing, I guess. I'll check it out tomorrow if I get a few minutes to come up for air between sorting out these 2 signing pallets that came in right before I left today and getting everything for...

    Pricing and Presentation Infant flat

    Yeah I had forgotten about the item conversion thing, that was something separate. I'm talking about there being a big space on each shelf of the boosters, almost like a display goes there, but instead of a display, the line listing just shows "reserved item" or something along those lines. I...

    New to Signing

    I feel your pain. I got "promoted" to Signing TM in October - just in time for Q4 sets. It was basically a trial by fire at the worst time of year. No training, no nothing. Didn't even have more than a few random weeks of plano experience, either. But Q4 went really well, everyone says I'm...

    Yeah we got the new 48s and blocker boxes as well. What I'm curious about is, at least when we set it a couple weeks back, there were big unmarked spaces on the shelf. The line listings had something like RESERVE ITEM with an actual DPCI that led nowhere. Can't recall if the item description...

    How many trucks and how big does your store average?

    My 4am store gets 5x1800-2500 on a normal week, going up to 6 right now thru the end of summer then every day with doubles in Q4. This thread has me wondering how this new process with a smaller unload team and stockers coming in later is going to work on the nights we get doubles. It's...

    Performance Reviews

    I was told something similar, but I got DIO not ION. My TL had zero suggestions on things I could improve, I got a ton of DEOs on the individual categories, no IONs, but because it was my first year, only DIO overall. I wasn't sure if that was just a line or not since I thought the prorating...

    H&H is only good for decorating a landfill

    I used to push over there and from what I remember it's about a 60/40 split between India and Indonesia, at least from the boxes that were clearly labelled.

    H&H is only good for decorating a landfill

    I haven't seen any of the new stuff that just came out, but that used to be part of my area on Flow, and I agree that most of it is very low quality. My first day pushing over there, I broke two of the ceramic pitchers just by picking them up by the handles. The handle couldn't even support...

    MEGATHREAD 2018-2019 Store Modernization Megathread

    Reading thru this thread, it looks like at least one other person on a flow team got the whole "Base pay is going up $1/hr so more is going to be expected of you" / "we are going to be getting tons of qualified applicants" speech. I find that interesting. Because while they ACTED like people...

    Pricing and Presentation Remodel Photo Dump

    Wow, that home/plug section looks amazing. I hope our store is on the remodel list. I need to get on workbench one of these days and check.

    "Acknowledging Every Guest" Rule

    I'm not exactly a people person (one of the reasons I love flow - 95% of my work is done while the store is closed). But when I am on the floor while we're open, I always at least smile and nod so they don't have to feel like they're chasing me down if the need to ask where something is...

    Big news coming Monday?

    Whaaat? With no pallets and a bunch of tiny boxes? Those 2500s we've been getting lately seem pretty full. I'd hate to see a 3500. I'm probably going to have nightmares now, thanks! :eek:

    About those seasonal TMs

    Our TL does that pretty much every day anyway haha. "Look up, look down", etc. "If it's in the back we can't sell it and if we can't sell it, we don't get hours". He also spot checks backstock carts, but he was actually out that day. Maybe that's why the other guy felt like he could get away...

    About those seasonal TMs

    I feel you on the backstock one. I'm seasonal as well, but I finished up a different seasonal guy's area one day and as I was getting ready to take his backstock cart to the back, I noticed that one of the items on there would clearly go out. So I decided to try to push the whole cart and...

    I’m on day 76 of my 90 day probation period, if they were going to let me go, wouldn’t they have

    I think I remember my ETL-HR saying something like seasonal can be kept for up to 120 days as well, but that usually January is the end either way. Probationary period is still 90, I think seasonal status lasting the 120 or whatever just gives them the flexibility to hire a little early/keep...
