You too!! This seems to be the trend in my district. It's not the sort TM"s it's the push TM"s in Softlines. Everyday I've had to move pallets twice sometimes three times, just to get freight behind the pallet or bring it back to the sort area for the sort team to breakout the oldest freight. I want to go back to the way it was. Earlier the better to unload and have people pushing freight before store opens!
I feel your pain, I really do LOL

Anyone else being told that corporate has mandated a 4am start for the OPU picker and that the hours have to be scheduled under Inventory?

Ummm...what? That...no. Yikes.

We're busy but not this defcon level b.s., at my store anyway. 3 hour goal times made my shift chill and efficient. Starting me at 4am would make me walk out the dang door.

I would love to start at 4am... quiet day
The thing is that it's not really quiet. It starts out alright. You're just picking hte overnight orders. But then the orders that came in after the truck was acknowledged start dropping. It's a mad rush to pick all the toilet paper and water before the doors open.

We are starting opu two hours before the store opens. We steadily have around 20 batches in pickup all day. Things get hectic when opu tms go to lunch.

No, but I wouldn't mind it. Traffic would be even lighter than it is now.. But then we get told things a few days to weeks after we are supposed to be doing things a certain way. hell they still can't schedule coverage for an entire day often leaving our mid afternoon early evening person alone for hours at a time, if they even schedule anyone.. Yes this is happening with the crazy shit that is going on.

Can anyone share a pic of how a prep station is "supposed" to be set up? These are the units we have and we are expanding our staffing and work load, so we need to put them in use. Thx

I start my lead position next Monday! I didn't think it would be that fast, I thought I would have a few more weeks to say goodbye and wrap things up at my old store. I'm super excited and sad at the same time, it's bittersweet for sure.
Good luck!

Anyone ran into the shipping labels that don't stick well? I'm sure Target saved a penny per million on adhesive, but now we are having an additional step and waste tape to secure the labels down. Thanks Target for being inefficient once again.
If Target wasn't doing so well I'd really be worrying about their viability. Good satellite channels cut from breakroom tv, towel paper thinner, and now label adhesive not working. Tiny little things that keep getting cut
