Just wondering how they break up the areas of responsibility in other stores. Communication around this at my store is crap. No one knows what is going to happen.

It's probably cause they are not sure yet. the store will take some time where they think everyone will fit the best, than it may change again after that.

There is a guide that outlines the new A&A (softlines) breakout process as far as how the Z-racks are now suppose to be set up with those yellow hanger dividers that have the brand name label cards on them it explains other things like the new mini racks with the red baskets at the bottom and how supposed to receive folding tables etc. Does anyone know what I am talking about if so where can I go to print that guide out? Is it on workbench maybe?

Just search sort and stock on work bench. The A&A portion is in the massive handbook for sort and stock. If you go to the page for it though you can find light duty profiles and a ton of other resources for setting it up

I just took over my stores "Inbound team" after being a SR. Hardlines TL for 3 years (change of pace) and this process doesnt work with the hours and expectations given. I consider my self a super fast worker and can get task (Sales plans,revisions, PTM, etc) done very quickly, but to expect someone to zone up to 10 aisles to perfection, do the pulls, shoot exfs, push their portion of the truck, and do reshop on top of it , its not realistic. Now were incorporating workload and pricing into their duties within a 6-8 hour time frame? I like the sort process and think it does work but the problem is how long it takes and im only given 6 people, now 5 due to payroll cuts were losing alot of wasted time when we could be unloading with more people and getting done quicker. I inherited mainly old school flow team members who have been converted to "Dedicated stockers (experts) and it has been a disaster. Many of them are not qualified or have the intelligence to handle whats being asked of them. Were also not really raising our standards of who were hiring, although that could be more of a demographic issue. Ive been with the company going on 5 years now, and the past year has been the most stressful and chaotic ever with all the changes. I get that we have to stay ahead of the competition, but at what point do we not step back and say what aint broke dont fix it? I dont see this lasting long at all. My store is barely head above water now and were fighting the same battles that every other store is facing since this rollout.

Can't have pallets that would cause unnecessary steps. Remember you are only allowed to go three steps from the uboat to stock the product. The uboat must always come with you.
Yes, so I have to tell every single guest in my aisle, "Let me know if my vehicle is in your way." One u-boat, one TM, and one guest with a cart in an aisle is crowded. Add a couple of kids wandering while mom is shopping and getting anything pushed is impossible. Yep, it's so much more efficient though!

All DTL’s and up will have a group meeting in Minneapolis during March week 1 where modernization will be officially rolled out to the entire company. STL’s will have a meeting the following week with a company expectation that’s modernization is fully implemented in all stores by the beginning of Q2 (May).
This is in line with what I have heard as well.

This news makes me feel like I am in one of those dreams where I'm being chased by something big and bad and it's very scary!! :eek:

If you're going to insult the intelligence of your tms, at least proofread your own grammar...... just saying...
