    Remember Logistics?

    Didn’t logistics just schedule trailers and create appointments? They never left their cubicles so it’s hard to know what the similarities are. Maybe you could shed some light on how they’re similar?

    "Warehouse leaders"

    I agree, however, a person can very much lose the job in an interview even if they’re a favorite to get it.

    Mistake in application?

    is it just a strength thing or do you have a bad (insert random body part) that it’s a medical thing? If it’s a strength thing, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. Few boxes weigh that, and you’ll gain the strength fairly quickly to at least be able to move them. You don’t have to throw them...

    Another Newbie...What to expect?

    The right department for you is going to depend on what you’re looking for. Outbound is sort of like getting paid to go to the gym. Warehousing gets to use a lot of different equipment. Inbound is the only department that you work closely with other people most of the time. Not exactly sure how...

    "Warehouse leaders"

    Our PA is always like that too, but it’s because the A-keys just gather stuff that has issues and put it there with no paperwork or note or anything to know where it came from. So the B-keys spend the entire week figuring it all out just in time for it to go to shit again on the weekend. I...

    "Warehouse leaders"

    It doesn’t seem like enough work to keep 2 people busy, especially during slower months. There will probably be a lot of tracking things (which carriers send bad info to Ryder, which consolidators send freight for other DCs, vendors that mislabel freight, etc). I’d imagine something needs to be...

    Cross-training

    You’re reading too much into it. Each dept is supposed to have a certain number of people on each key that can be flexed out if need be. Usually there are enough volunteers. If there aren’t enough, my building goes in reverse seniority order but skipping anyone who isn’t fully ramped, it’s just...

    "Warehouse leaders"

    I wasn’t saying they don’t need 2 leads, just that flexing a lead out just to flex someone into that lead spot is dumb when they could just flex a normal tm out and be done with it. I assume inbound will be 1 art & 1 dock and outbound will be 1 wing & 1 depal. Mbp and warehousing I’m not too...

    "Warehouse leaders"

    Handles all of the exceptions for inbound. POs not on appt, invalid POs, misships, invalid barcodes, predistro that doesn’t scan, etc. (everything that problem area handles now) It sounds like they’re taking some work off of the inbound clericals and putting it to problem solvers as far as...

    "Warehouse leaders"

    That’s asinine, why move 2 people when they could accomplish the same goal by moving 1? And a lead as a trainer would (theoretically) train better since it would have a larger effect on their team’s success.

    "Warehouse leaders"

    I’m guessing that between the 2 leads they’ll alternate days between leads and that person will be focused on rebin since there’s a lot of movement within it. The other will just pick and observe the other pickers, answer questions for people in passing, etc.? I had thought about that too, it...

    "Warehouse leaders"

    How in the hell is that supposed to work when 1/2 of your time isn’t supposed to be spent in a prod function?

    "Warehouse leaders"

    It’s a progression pay scale like regular warehouse workers but like $2/hr more. You don’t go to the top if you’re maxed out as a WW, you go to the closest progression step and go from there. You give people “feedback” on how to be better, update gemba boards, move people around between...

    DC Job Change

    Is it worded as $xx.xx will be your new rate excluding shift differential or something similar? I think it’s just a generic offer sheet that they just fill in whatever the base pay is, so it may just be oddly worded. Everyone gets the shift differential on A1/A2 & B2/B3 so I would think it’s...

    Target Requires Doctor's Note?!

    Do you have a primary care doctor already? You can probably call them, explain your situation, and they can fax/email the note directly to HR. Nobody wants you in a hospital/dr office if you’re having symptoms. Maybe they’ll require a virtual appointment, but they’re going to tell you not to...

    Efficency on manual dock

    If you have a trailer of single item pallets, you should use as much space as you have available to you. The fewer number of times you get on/off the RC or change between doing things, the better. So pull off as much as you can at once, cut all of the shrink wrap at one time, then print it all...

    60 hour work weeks

    Ok, so definitely don’t transfer to whatever DC johny works at! Holy $#!+ dude!

    60 hour work weeks

    60 hour weeks are normal in the Oct-Dec time frame. In my 20ish years it hasn’t been very often I’ve had mandatory 60 outside of that. Every building and every year is different to a point though, like Hal said, some buildings are still behind, mine has been letting people leave early for a...

    shift changes

    We had the same a few months ago, but I’m writing that off as an oddity as I think it was just because there were so many new hires, no way to get them trained otherwise. Still worth a shot though.

    shift changes

    Odds of getting hired onto B1 are slim to none, spots on that shift are generally filled before new hires are brought in. HR might be able to accommodate you, but I wouldn’t count on it. Otherwise you could put in 6 months on B2 and then try to get B1 from there.
