This article seems to be a rehash of the first article. In the article, it states that the article came out on Wednesday and then all of a sudden the district manager and corporate is there the same day? Target quietly cut backroom and overnight shifts? Um, no, they did not. So, the article states that the district managers are telling the stores to clean up the backroom. How? With what resources and hours? The out of control backrooms are the result of Target and their modernization policies. We can clean it up one day...what happens in the future?Target quietly cut overnight and backroom shifts in stores across the US, which workers say has created an increase in workload for those on daytime shifts.www.aol.com

I spend way less time on the floor than I did when we had a backroom team to handle pulls & backstocking.'Helping a guest now feels like a burden'
Indeed. And what kills me is we knew this from the pilot stores. It was clear then that the dreams of modernization wouldn't work company-wide, but someone's ego was too far invested into it to admit it was a good thing to try, it just wasn't going to work with the hours provided. It needs more hours to work, not less, because people are responsible for so many more things and can't be as efficient as, say, when someone spends all their time in the backroom doing backroom tasks or on the floor doing on the floor tasks or all their time doing truck & freight tasks, instead of being expected to do all of them in a 5 hour shift."When the rubber met the road, it didn't work," the Texas employee said.
