    My name was not on the printed schedule for next week, does this mean anything?

    So one of my favorite TL's (she can be harsh sometimes but I love her) called me into the group office today and the HR trainee (not sure of the specific term) set up some hours for me next week. Both of them were confused as to why I didn't have hours. I was more concerned about my name just...

    My name was not on the printed schedule for next week, does this mean anything?

    On the online schedule for next week, it just says "No schedule details available in myTime for the above period ". I would assume that is just what it says if you have no hours for a week, but I'm not sure.

    My name was not on the printed schedule for next week, does this mean anything?

    I have full availability (I can come in anytime, I don't have anything really preventing it) and have never called out even once. I've had days were I get off at 11pm and am scheduled for 6am the next day and I'm still going to go, even though that is kind of messed up scheduling. As far as...

    Thank you for this, I didn't look on the back of the schedule. This makes me feel a lot better.

    My name was not on the printed schedule for next week, does this mean anything?

    Is it just that I wasn't scheduled for hours that week? I freak out about this kind of stuff because I had the same thing happen when I was being let go for being seasonal. The HR-ETL happened to be there, she seemed surprised when I told her and said she would get me hours, but I can't help but...

    Training... Or lack there of

    For some reason, when I do just OPUs and DUs, I can find most of the items, but SFS can be really bad sometimes. I don't know why they are different at all. I will say I'm definitely not a pro picker but I'm above average and try really hard. Your store sounds great actually, I wish I worked...

    Training... Or lack there of

    How can you get 3%? At my store we were doing 5-10% during the holidays, but recently we have been doing at least 30%. Even the TL who will pick with us gets around that. There was one day were I couldn't find literally more than half a batch (mostly clothes). I asked all the softline people...

    Training... Or lack there of

    Definitely don't just hit "Can't find" if you can't find it in the aisle. You seem to be at a smaller store if you are literally the only one in sfs. You need to talk to your TL about this and maybe get someone who knows a lot about it to help explain the little things. The training I got was on...

    Truck unload

    That sucks, I know we have had one person in the truck and 2 people for each side at best. Last few times I did it, I was the only one on my side while the other side had two or three people. Obviously, I can see that side needs more people as it has most of market, chemicals, baby food etc. but...

    Truck unload

    I am pretty new to it too, but I would say, don't worry too much about speed if you just started doing it. Of course, go as fast as you can, but I personally wouldn't sacrifice accuracy for speed, that will really muck things up later on. You will get the hang of it the more you do it and you...

    What do you do with Items with no location?

    I would want this more than anything, but it is definitely not a solution to the fundamental problems. Searching with the gun can be slow, especially if the items are in some random, unthinkable place and the chances of them backing off the goal time are realistically 0. This really sounds like...

    Specialty Off the Record HR

    I was never notified I would be potentially leaving until I got a random call, way later than it should have been. They told me my last day was a few days later. I was shocked, I told my ETL that night and they were shocked too. No one else knew about it except probably the HR ETL (who I didn't...

    What do you do with Items with no location?

    Yeah, it comes down to what is more important to them: Make the goal time or find the item, but sometimes it takes so much time to look for it, it's not worth it. And yes, there are many items that I am positive are somewhere in the building at least, but where? Who knows? Many times I've gone...

    What do you do with Items with no location?

    Yes! This is my problem with even the idea of not putting an item exactly where it is supposed to be. This is why we keep getting higher INFs and I feel terrible when I can't find stuff. I understand it can depend, but I just want the item to be where it should be. Of course softlines are the...

    Thank you! I will check that out next time I come across this.

    What do you do with Items with no location?

    My TL was the one that gave me the flat, but she might not have realized how bad it was. I did what I could with it, but ideally I think that stuff should be backstocked, instead of people putting it just anywhere on the floor. Obviously this creates more work for the backroom and we don't have...

    What do you do with Items with no location?

    I wonder if those items could have a location soon, but I really don't know. This was bran new product we just off loaded, so I don't understand why it would be like that.

    What do you do with Items with no location?

    I was pushing an enormously stacked flatbed that was 90% items with no location. The TL told me to flex some of it, but eventually it just gets ridiculous. I hate flexing in general because of my experiences in SFS. I would rather it be at least backstocked so it can be found for whatever...

    Inbound: General job duties and/or tips

    So I did it earlier today and it went really well. The TL mentioned to me that I did good, which is always nice to hear in general. It was not an extremely large amount so I had some time to acquaint myself with various procedures. I will still need some time to get perfect at it, but it was not...
