    anyone hearing anything yet on overtime for fall season? We typically have all we want but with the recent change in the way things are slotted and new hires it's rumored ot will be scarece but I don't believe it . Opinions ?
     
  2. It varies wildly between departments and the buildings. Where I'm at in Warehouse dept., the OT started up in June and hasn't stopped yet, and probably won't til Feb.

    Usually though, the OT machine fires up around last week Oct-2nd week Nov and goes til 2nd or 3rd week Jan. YMMV.

    There's a lot to go around here. From what some are telling me, it's pretty rare for any voluntary OT to get denied. And we've flexed up several times in the short time I've been at the DC already.

    Because of the Hurricane, three buildings were shutdown, one of which was an FC. It's likely we're getting mandatory OT this week because of that. Other than that, our GM has told us that there will likely be less volume, and less OT leading up to Thanksgiving. Didn't rule it out, but said it would be far less than last year.

    Last year, we had Mandatory Flex Ups starting September. So it has definitely been slow.

    We have yet to see any ot in my building at all and inbound has been flexing on my shift a2 at start up again at mid shift and sometime all of inbound by4am on a Monday night /Tuesday morning and a good bit of flexing on Sunday night also it's unusual but appears to
    Have something to do with the scheduling and inbound sync /plan
     
  6. It feels like IB sync really did a number on OT for inbound . Last 2 years we were seeing scheduled up in July! So far, not one day this year. Inbounds OT has been non existent. Warehouse and Outbound, pretty much every day...Even with Matthew shutting us down for 2.5 days, and over 40! of our stores for a few days, our plans for ART and the MD have been super manageable; I'm talking less than 50k a shift! I'm praying for a booming peak for the fall...I needs me my OT!

    RhettB I've forgotten more than many young ETLs know.

    Stores get very little to no OT.

    Stores with chronic staffing problems get plenty of OT.

    We typically don't see mandatory as we have enough volunteers
