is it me or do the hours they post to do the set totally wrong? I mean like working all the freight ,building the gondolas, doing the repacks, i swear that place is trying to kill us!
never been so glad to get to 100% in my life.
if you guys haven't seen, they've updated mysupport, along with all the little "helpful" info tips. it says pog is not responsible for pulling/backstocking/clearance/etc., so the hours don't reflect that. the hours also don't include ISM, specialty builds (gondolas/fixtures/etc.) and a whole other list of stuff. so EXACTLY WHO THE HECK IS SUPPOSE TO DO IT? do they really think that we walk into the store, the sft has all these pretty gondolas built, the br has our stuff pulled, and the sf has remerched all the clearance beautifully and signed it in a brand manner? we just throw a couple of shelves up and stick in a few pegs and push? have these people EVER SET A POG?
my apologies to anyone whose store actually works that way. i got 40 hours for my team last week, 150 this week, and the next two weeks are the same way. my stl came by to see what we needed, and i plainly told him we needed someone to build around 40 bins or push. he just laughed and said he wasn't the person for that job and went back to the office. frustrated doesn't begin to describe my day today...
I wonder how many sales we actually get in the month of July for back to school. Seems like school JUST got out and we have back to school set. College goes back in about a month and High School and below doesnt go back for almost 2 months where I live. Always have guests wondering where our previous set stuff went since those were summer items and there is 2 months of summer left.
