Flow Team here was split into two teams, one that comes in at 6:30 (to actually unload the truck, they do some pushing too) and some at 9. Priority 1 and 2 I guess. I'm P2 and come in at 9.Not sure how the rest of you are doing this, but rather than putting our flow team on the floor during business hours, we took away the payroll and have our sales floor team members doing truck. They aren’t pathologically adverse to backstock or guests, and understand the consequences of flexing incorrectly and not zoning as they go. After they backstock, they audit. Flow teams hours got cut significantly, the ones that stayed/get hours do the sorting
We're officially labeled "sales floor" at 9 and we still get hours, but it's been really thin on the ground. Like, I have 2 days a week, kind of thin. A couple weeks back I was able to get an extra day here and there, but not last week, and probably not this week, either. If it weren't for my taxes coming back in I'd be up shit creek.
Yeah, that's why my username is what it is. I'm on flow for a reason. I certainly didn't take this job to do pricing or plano--if I wanted to do that, I would have applied for it in the first place. I'm not trying to sound lazy, it's just that I simply don't have the head for it (I'm more than a bit dim, I'll admit, especially since doing any work now I get constantly pulled away from it by every guest that needs help every other minute), pushing freight/the truck is simple and interacting with guests is fine.Having to do price changes, let alone plano, is terrifying.
Training also doesn't last long enough, and even if they tried to get people to train other people--there's no time, literally, at my store they are pulling people from the backroom and a bunch of other places just to get things pushed without giving flow more hours. Almost everyone's got a second job...urgh
