So last week during a huddle a Sr. TL at my store informed us that the new "rule" is that if a team member submits 3 or more punch corrections per month it will result in a coaching. This is especially unfair due to the fact that myself, along with many others, start our shifts before the store even opens. I generally arrive to work around 6:55am (shift starts at 7) and ring the doorbell awaiting an LOD to come unlock the front door. But sometimes, more often than not, it can take one of them up to 10 minutes to actually unlock it. So of course I submit several punch corrections so I wont appear to be "late." I also make sure to include down in the comment box that I was waiting at the door for the LOD to unlock it. I've always had to do this and actually don't mind doing so, I understand how hectic it gets in the morning and opening the front door isn't exactly an LOD's top priority. But due to this new "rule" apparently I will be coached if I submit more than 3 of these punch corrections per month. But I don't see it being fair that they can do such a thing. I even asked the Sr. TL if this was a new company-wide rule and he said "No, it's a new store rule because people are doing too many punch corrections and it's taking up too much of HR's time." Well it's basically a lose-lose situation for me; Either be coached for submitting too many punch corrections, or be coached for being "late" too many times..both of which being because of the LOD taking forever to open the door. So what is everyone's thoughts on this?
