Hmmm...I don't really like that. As OPU/DriveUp I rely heavily on my GSAs to help me coordinate when needed. Not having them is going to be a challenge in some respects. Cashiers aren't going to be able to help. If I'm on a pick and a driveup comes in, who is going to find someone to run it out? I need my GSAs for that amongst other things.
Solved by having an order pickup TM scheduled.

This is fine if they aren’t bullshit 100% change revisions. My rug revisions this week: 3 hours for 6 pogs. Sheets? 3.5 hours for one revision.
WELCOME TO LARGE REVISIONS!
Question? Are you subjected to staying strictly to the set hours? Have you been able to set your 3.4 hour sheet POG plus move/merchandise the clearance, plus pull your batch, plus push your batch, plus shoot exf's for merchandise still located in the backroom but did not come out in the initial batch, plus pull the batch made, plus audit the empty locations, plus backstock overstock you pulled off the aisle, plus go through the 5 trapped pallets that the Inbound TL took upon themselves to trap because they didn't want to backstock it due to it being transition.

Sorry for the run on sentence but I was trying to make a point that these are the steps my store (presentation team) has to go through Monday-Friday, every week! I've tried disputing the set hours with My Support and was told time after time that it doesn't include pulling, backstocking or merchandising clearance. My answer was that I needed to take partners with the backroom team. Well we barely have that team anymore and they don't even have time to do their Daily 12! We try to make it work but come up short for the week So there are some revisions or pogs not set for the week due to "No One has the time to HELP!" And to add on no payroll or need to stick close to your schedule, I don't think anyone can realistically do what we are being tasked to do.

We typically have an opening GS, a mid OPU, and closing GS. Until they give us enough hours to have 2 GSTMs and an OPU, the GSA/GSTL will have to help with drive ups or backing up the service desk.
That is the other thing, who helps out with the backup at GS. Not everyone in the store is GS trained.

Intriguing, feel like those of us who are already seniors and mid twenties hourly aren’t gonna get shit for raises though
I would not doubt that, at all. I'm nowhere near mid twenties (in fact, I had to apply elsewhere & ask my stl to match the offer in order to get over $16) so this might, potentially, be good for me.

My team doesn’t trap stuff. We pre tie early, we backstock all transition in the last section(s) of the aisle, so the batches are full and easy to pull quickly. We do our own price change, so that had already been handled and moved the day before. I have my team audit everything, not just outs. All of my bedding workload added up to like 13.5 hours, and I spent about 15 on it only because of backing up and helping guests.

You just don't believe enough. If you just blindly do what you're told and give 567.43% every day, it'll all work out great!!!

This is exactly what I'm worried about. But I suppose if they performance everyone out for not completing tasks in the set times, they'll realize it doesn't work and change it again...but yeah.

I think our ETLs and TLs are just moving around. Not sure if anyone was cut. But I was asked recently if I wanted to go to market, which I hesitated, but then when I told who the TL and ETL would be (and who was going to hardlines), I said I'd go to market. I figure I'll only be at Target for six more months, so I can make it through.

Has anyone heard anything about fulfillment; mainly SFS? For example, will stores picking over 800 units a day have a TL? I Had heard awhile ago there was potential for an "assistant lead" position or something - was that scrapped?
