AP would love to take down an ETL. And ETLs don't know everything. I would not be surprised if the data that gets recorded on TMs is reviewed above the store level. I don't think the TM who changed it would get in trouble because it was their boss telling them to change the price. There is a conflict there. Now, if the same TM is changing prices for the same ETL more than once, then there could be a conversation. Me being the pain in the ass that I am, might have said, "Are you sure? Does the DCPI match?" Is your job only worth $26?"So I take it that I shouldn't have changed it for him? I guess I got lucky that the service advocate responsible for closing the registers handled it instead.
In a normal situation, I agree that AP would talk to him about it but this ETL is always chatting with the AP team members so I'm skeptical that he would be disciplined. I'm curious to see how this turns out though.
I understand the seriousness of team members price challenging so I would never do it. I would rather buy a similar item at another store than risk losing my job over saving a few dollars.
