Does anyone else's store have an individual, whom on truck unload works at the front of the line and scans off any bulk backstock/transition product (or from areas that are heavy in product that day), puts it on pallets, then backstocks the product on those pallets in there appropriate backroom sections after unload? Also, they update all the BRLA signs once a week in both the backroom and receiving. Paid just like a GM team member.

we have One BR TM that works unload, pulls ALL Disco/clearance, does ALL BR Audits, keeps BR boot camp brand by facing barcodes out/de-trashing anything a DBO backstocks incorrectly, updates BRLA scores, backstocks PIPO . . . Etc. Never leaves backroom entire shift.
Yep essentially the same here, seems odd that it isn't consider a TL type position is all I have been thinking.

Tbf if we had a person do that in my store besides unload that would be like an hour tops. Br audits are like 30 tops for us. We never have clearance/disco maybe a few a week. My store has been caseless since the beginning of the year not really much to fix. Pipo is pushed during unload and shouldn't really take any time to backstock.

Well someone told you it’s kit a thing and I conquer no matter the volume of your store 1/2/3 trucks there’s no such thing as scanning the trucks that went years ago. It is push all for Fdc/Rdc

We called that the Red Line process and that was fazed out in our store years ago. I didn't even know they had a system sill set up for that in the myDevices. Last time we did it in our store we still used the PDAs.

But our store does have a DBO for BR and they will pull 141 for a little bit and then work on various BR tasks including fixing errors, organizing the aisles, and do any little BR task that the bosses throw at them.

As a replen Sr. TL this position didn't exist but I 100% had a person who did it.

He worked 40 hours a week, he was responsible for:

Truck day:
Pushing and back-stocking bulk.
Maintaining the bulk side of the stockroom (condensing pallets, keeping bulk pull space organized and low)
Make bales as required, help with trash if it got backed up.


Non-Truck days:
Sort all transition by aisle, or aisles if needed. Striped and wrapped.
Ensure if transition was not pre-tied that the POG TL knew and it happened. When I took over POG I also let him pre-tie it himself based on the workload I had mapped out if I my signing specialist (the person who pre-tied for me) missed it.
Fill all of what I labeled "fast-movers". Essentially large product with low capacity that moved quickly. This was generally paper, water.
Pull the BR error report, look at the lowest areas and identify why, bring that back to me so I could have someone fix it or find out who fucked it up and show them why.

When we moved to 7+ trucks weekly his workoad shifted more towards non-truck side daily and I had someone else push/manage bulk.

Definitely an extremely value-added slot if you can get the right person for it.

Sure do, but what do you so with your other arm?

There’s no way you are scanning trucks .
Using the receiving app, I select “trailer” from the drop down menu, then enter in the trailers DCI number. From there, I scan each box for the areas with heavy bulk that day. If a scanned box double beeps and says “Backstock”, I take it off the line and place it on an organized pallet for its given area. Once finished I pull these pallets to the backroom and beginning back stocking them.
So yeah. I do scan trucks. Have been 5 days a week for the last year. When I’m off another employee does it.
