Any advice on how to handle a "by the book" ETL?
I've found the same thing.In my experience, doing EVERYTHING by the book is the best way to get management to STOP doing everything by the book.
What is conceived at HQ rarely works 100% of the time in every single store, because the number of hours allotted are never enough to get tasks even close to complete. Smart STLs and ETLs learn when to follow the book and when to take shortcuts. Those that are not smart won't be with the company for long.
So, start doing everything by the book and see where your ETL is on that scale.
If you get coached you can’t transfer.I am behind 2 trucks and my ETL refuses to let me have a food huddle. Even their peers don't understand the thought process. So if I get coached out of this crap, I'm transferring stores. I set my workcenter up for success until my new ETL came along.
