Our store new policy is not to enter or leave the store via the main door and to only use TSC door and Who ever don't follow the policy will be coached. According to our store manager is to ensure the store protocol.
Thanks for sharing your opinions.
It's all different depending on the store. For my old store, you went in/out through the main doors during open hours, but if the store was closed, you would use the door by TSC.
At my current store, everybody goes in and out through the main doors. If we're closed, then somebody has to let you in/out.
What I find funny though is, when we leave after close, they want us to use the buddy system. I'm not saying it's a bad idea or anything like that, but doing carts, I'm already outside, by myself, for most of the night to begin with. So to me, it's just comical considering that.
I've challenged the fixture room being locked. I hate it being locked. There is a policy for AP to "control the keys to Fixtures". They are referring to the GPS Fixtures, IPOD, etc., but inexperienced management takes that to mean the fixture room. Their concern is more for hidden merchandise than for the fixture room staying clean.
If you are in a store where you have an separate employee entrance, it is still the rule for every tm to enter and leave through that door. Its a policy in place to control employee theft.
Like I said, a rule du jour that gets enforced only until it inconveniences the h### out of the ETLs before being dropped like a hot rock.
