It used to be the rule and if you did not have 8 hours between shifts you got paid overtime. At my present job our union contracts states that we must have either 9 or 10 hours between shifts or you get paid overtime. I think my boss has worked a few shifts without minimum number hours between each, but only because we were understaffed and under budget on payroll.Nope! That is in no way a rule or law except I think in 1 or 2 states. Granted, as far as I know they try to be fair with it for the most part. I've talked to my leads to get my schedule changed if there was less than 8 hours between my shifts, and they've agreed, but they dont have to grant that request.
also the sign says "lunch meat" and i think thats a freezer door ??My first thought on this is that their freezer is broken and had to be de-merched. But.... there's no sign up apologizing for the inconvenience and nothing looped thru the doors to keep people out.
If sales are way up, then there is your reason. That's all that matters. I know it's stupid, but that's going to be the justification for a lot of things. My personal example: overhead signing sits in the back not done. But who cares if we are making sales.Thank you. That's what I thought. During the majority of the year, we had 2 people breaking out softlines. For the past 3 months or so, they have 1 scheduled for a 6 hour shift, and rarely gets finished. They have not let any other inbound person help her. We do have a couple of inbound folks that can help and have offered to help, but they end up getting sent out to do GM1 or seasonal. The leaders tell the Style team that if they want the breakout done after the Inbound TM leaves, that they are responsible for it. From what I'm seeing, the Style team has enough on their plate out on the floor at this point and they are working their butts off and moving merchandise at a great pace. The Style team really does not have time to break out. So, the softlines repacks get backed up, the Flexible Fulfillment folks have to dig through the boxes and make a mess, and now we have pallets and pallets of unsorted softlines and literally no place to put them. So not only do we have a mess, we have missed sales because I know that the FF folks cannot find a lot of the things that are located in those boxes because of many items not being RFID. I just don't get it. Our Style sales this year are way up, and can actually be even better.
I guess now my next question is, why are they shorting the breakout hours and what are they doing with them?
We always have at least two for softlines breakout. We used to have two or three for hanging, one for mens, one for womens, and two for infants.
