Just curious if the Closing TL (and other TLs who are key holders) get paid differently because of the added responsibility? I may be moving to this position from another TL position and need to know if I should be asking for a pay change. Thanks!

No. It’s not added responsibility. It’s just different. Your reward is not working weekends, not extra pay.

Also, most TLs should be key carriers once SrTLs were eliminated in 2019, as all TLs basically became SrTLs (in terms of compensation.) However, I haven’t really seen this executed. So, in other words, key carrier pay is already factored in.

When I moved from GSTL to Closing TL in April 2019 I asked for a raise and was told it's a lateral move due to modernization. I was not a key carrier prior to this and modernization was just becoming official so I was able to negotiate a $1 per hour raise. I had the fact that nobody wanted the position working in my favor.

Of course we all got bumped up to $19 this past year anyway, so there's that...

Honestly in some scenarios i can see why the closing lead would feel that higher pay is necessary but i feel like that’s only in stores where they’re just cleaning up after everyone else or the overall idea of being in charge of the whole store by themselves for a decent portion of their time each day.. but personally having a small team and not having a whole workcenter to worry about i think kinda evens it out. I feel less accountable cuz if the store looks decent each morning when my SD comes in then i’m not being held accountable for anything else.

The only difference is you get an extra 15 minutes added after you punch out automatically to conduct your final exterior perimeter check of all the doors.

We all get 15 minutes for taking a phone call at home. Perimeter check takes 2 minutes.

Perimeter check may not be a full 15 but should definitely be more then 2. It’s more then just the drive around the building. If you are morning opener the proper procedure is to drive around, then you can enter with 1 other person. Walk the interior perimeter of the store and then provided there are no issues you can go up and let the remaining team in. In closing not everyone has a door by the timeclock. So thats doing the interior walk before clocking out, then the walk to the front, arm the building, lock the remaining door on your way out. Double check all your locks, make sure team gets into vehicles safely and then do the drive around. Again- not usually 15 minutes unless there is an issue with the alarm panel or something else comes up. But more then 2. For most anyway

every team lead got a key in 2019 as part of modernization but you seem to be like my store were we chose to keep the GSTL/SETL keyless along with sbux since we never give them LOD shifts and they focus on service only.

Both our SETL's have keys, one of them never closes though. The other closes frequently on weekends. Neither Style TL, and at least 2 GM TL's have ever closed though, only 1 GM, Consumables, and 1 of the SETL's is on the closing rotation, aside from all except one of the ETL's.

The gm tls that do the truck unload are not on the closing rotation for obvious reasons. Everyone besides the 2 gm tls are part of the closing rotation, even the starbucks tl, at my store. Imo every tl should be on closing rotation besides inbound.
