Before our backroom (around 7am) would have about 6 skids/pallet of backstock from the truck, autofills lined up to push, and carts/flat beds of backstock from flow team around store opening time. So it gets pretty packed. As a plano tm, it was really difficult to pull your batches until after lunch.

Now, not much is in the way except for a few uboats that a tm is currently backstocking. Everyone is accountable for what they leave in the backroom. Push and backstock, keep repeating until nothing is left in receiving.

By 3, most if not all of the push is done.
How many trucks a week do you get and how large are the trucks/how long does unload take?

Anyone else read the June addendum?
Yes
Edit: We keep being reminded of these Addendums we need to read but when SD is questioned about specifics, the SD claims ignorance. The SD does not lead by example. They all want to be spoon fed, at least that is how it is at my store.

For one thing, now we’re going to have service advocates and checkout advocates. At least that is the way that the guest advocates will be scheduled.

In my store we have 5-6 Plano experts who do Plano and are scheduled in designated areas when there are no hours.

Modernization has worked in my store, and I agree my backroom is cleaner since we don’t leave the backstock or trash for other teams.

The monthly addendums cover everything happening for the month. New roll outs and initiatives, brand launches, storewide trainings, specialty trainings (mostly for beauty), events and demos, transitions/POGs/refreshes, giveaways, and changes to our programs like the new Workday rollout and POS rollout (here’s looking at you, June week 5).

It’s interesting to read about what’s going on in your area as well as other areas you might not normally get to see. It’s easy enough to skim through if you view it in print mode.

June addendum is readable by anyone, it was the Q1, Q2 overall addendums that are only readable by the SD.
Not every TM is given time on the clock to sit at the computer and read it though. I'm curious what "new schedule control by headquarters" means in a practical sense and I'm unlikely going to have the time while working to look at the document.

Well, for the same money, I'd prefer to be a checkout advocate rather than the service advocate that I apparently am.
