It's officially stated that the term "LOD" is no more, so it applies to all stores.
I’m technically the opening LOD since I run inbound. I open the store and handle LOD responsibilities until the other GM’s and ETL’s/SD comes in.

You can coach till you’re blue in the face. It’s not going to up morale or retain employees who are good and know their worth. They just hired 25 replacements so they can coach them to a bloody pulp as well. I doubt that 10% of them will ride it out until fall, so coach away and enjoy working 4th q by yourself.
i love how you completely ignored the context in which i said that to try and further your own (misguided) point

really cute

You’re not into modernization yet and you only have until September to get there. Sucks to be you.
I thought we would be there by now but they are really dragging their feet. LOD or no, doesn't really matter to me, but we have not been told to stop using the term, so LOD it is for now.

I am still waiting impatiently for the new phone system app - my store better be all over this and soon!

Oh boy, today we were told they don't want DBOs in each department, they will have 1 person per block in the morning, someone in the mid to do price change and stuff, and then zone defenders. Which means I'm losing another position that I liked to get thrown into something else. I'm so fucking over it. I liked my department, I was fixing things and getting into a groove and now they want to move me again. Plus they want to put me in A and B block. I told them before I can't do chemicals or beauty because I have sensitive skin, allergies, and asthma and being in that area all day is going to make me into an itchy, wheezy mess. At least on the newest schedule I'm back in fulfillment for a week, but who knows where after that.

Get a doctor's note. That would be an easy accomodation for Spot.

I have no idea. We were getting a visit today and it sounded like this was coming from district level or something. But honestly, leadership sounds as clueless about it as we are. But my interpretation was one person per A, B, C, etc...
How on earth will that work??

This sounds like backsliding on Modernization. R.I.P. your leads.

Wow, truck would never get done at my store with that mess. We have like 15 DBOs and they still don't get everything done because being shafted on hours.

This A,B,C blocking is happening at my store too, because of the loss of so many team members. We haven’t had anyone maintaining bedding, bath, pets, or sporting goods for over a month. My leadership told the toy DBO he needed to take ownership of the sporting goods area because of his proximity to it, and he quit this week.

I’m the only presentation expert at my store and I still do signing, kind of. I was the only person who set this weeks sales planners. At least no one is coached anymore, you can’t have any sort of accountability when you don’t even have enough people to run a store.

ha that would just get them queued them up for being performanced out.
Depends on leadership. I couldn't lift, push or pull any significant weight for somewhere around 6 months, which meant no big baby stuff, and they had no problem with assigning me in a way that didn't violate my doctor's note.

Oh and on top of the no DBO stuff we were told we have been scheduled for too many hours and are taking too long to push. I've been coming clean, but I know the poor toys and sporting goods people are buried. They seem to think they are giving us too many hours according to their computer. The next few weeks are going to be a shit show.

Without a POG team there have been so many POGs that have expired recently. I had two in my area but thankfully the new ones were the exact same so I was able to tie it without any issue. However, I didn't realize another two end caps were going clearance until I was pushing the product today and MyWork showed clearance. Guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow in addition to my push

Forgot this is in my last post. Rumor has it that there is an HQ visit coming to my store in the near future. This should be interesting

I’m guessing the difference between the stores drowning and stores doing ok, is tl and etl involvement.
Each of our tls pushes some freight every day. The priority 3 tl pulls batches a lot since his people are scheduled too close to noon or later. Our gm and style etls are on the floor every day either setting something, pushing a few tubs of clearance, puts up white pc labels, or remerchandising something. Our front etl is schmoozing, hops on, immediately responds to the Serv desk, etc. the only time they spend offstage is around lunch time or when the SD needs help writing the schedule.

I wish all stores leadership would get busy!

My store is mixed. We have 3 or 4 TL’s and 2 ETL’s that truly bust ass every single day and then 4 or 5 TL’s and 1 ETL in particular that mossy around and don’t do much of anything but get onto hard working team members about knit picky things that truly don’t matter whenever we have mountains of work in the back, our back rooms and receiving is constantly backed up and the remodel team uses all of the vehicles that’s just sit there. No time, no space, no resources. Every single day is a stress test. There is one simple solution that’s only two words. OVER NIGHT. Plain and simple. Everything could be solved and the dominoes can be picked up from Cornell bullshit
