It just kinda stinks to train right before Black Friday and they still haven't made up their minds for which department ... I'll find out by the end of the weekend.

POG TL is hard, not gonna lie. I see some of the things my plano TL has to accomplish, and it amazes me we finish 100 percent every week.

Don't be a POG TL at my store... Because of recent openings he is now the Backroom, Flow, and Presentation TL!! just sounds like fun to be doing the job that we normally have 5 for.

Ok. Ask the lod for you can do some endcap salesplanners instead. Or get some certs done like backroom, baler, compactor, power equipment $ food safety while you wait.

haha, I already have all my power equipment certifications and help with ad rotation sales planners on saturdays. I'm still in my old role, but my patience is wearing thin.

You have been signed off, but not actually in a TL position yet? It's possible that you are waiting for a spot to open within your district?

A GSA at my store who had been signed off as a TL had to wait for that exact same thing. She got an xfer from the front end to Bakery TL. At my store. Before I got fired I would pester her lol and call her a traitor for leaving me all alone on the front end. :(

Yes team member can get promoted and to a team lead and not be in that role for a while because they are appart of the team lead bench. Your either waiting for someone to be fired, quit or step down. But you should still be making the team lead pay which is sorta nice if they give you hours

Getting finalized this week! We do have open positions but our DTL determines where I go based on strengths/opps.

Out of all the time in the past two weeks they had to wait until the week of black friday to figure it out? Lol. Regardless, I am so stoked. I'm not on the new schedule, so either I'm fired or training. :)!

Swimwear in November is not crazy for those guests who are heading for warmer weather for their winter vacations.
Congrats to walruses on your promotion!

We just started getting ours in and I don't think we even have enough for a full quad...were a test store as well so we get all sorts of crazy product.
I'm doing a partial overnight to set it in at 4am. Tip have then sync up your opening weekend with your biggest adj so you can use the openin shifts to prep and set table ect. Its harder to do that during a close RTW is one of the most time consuming

We just set RTW on Monday and guests are complaining that we have too many bathing suits and not enough coats and jackets.
It's the opposite for me I got yelled at by a guest for not having enough she asked me what do you expect me to wear on vacation?!
I just smiled and said I'm sorry then later i checked asst case packs and found most of my swim suits were backstocked...in the boxes not hanging yay thanks overnight! ( depending on which overnight Lod or srtl is leadin the team they're either Gods gift to my store or Gods wrath)
