For limiting the number of people off per day? I would have gladly taken that or them limiting the number of people exempt from ot over this. Our dc, in particular on my key, has a lot of folks that have been there for a while, so they have 5 weeks of vaca/ph and some are even getting 6 weeks this year. There isn't enough available time on the calendar to even use it all. They are graciously allowing an extra person from Feb-April week 2.So, we didn't get dropped from 10% to 5%, however, they did extend the fall season vacation blackout all the way til the end of Jan.
Sooo during bts/btc (August week 1 through August week 3) and fall season (October week 3 through January week 1) your allotted vaca has been dropping for years? So if you are normally allowed 40 hours it’s been dropping to 20 hours for those time frames? Lots of people looking for other opportunities. Good thing there are lots of jobs out there i guess.We've had the "fall season" 5% rule at our Dc for a few years now.
No you don’t lose it, but they are making it more difficult to use. Around here hunting time is big. So haveing 2 people off instead of 4 is big. Especially when they add the clericals to their respective departments.My building has been doing this since I started back in 2012. Its just apparently none of the other TMs seem to know about it until just now. You don't lose vacation time. Its just only 5% of the shift can have that particular day off during fall season. But then again fall season use to only be Nov-Dec and yet somehow this year for us we started mandatory in June and didn't stop until a couple weeks ago.
Amen, did the same thing, already promoted in 6 months with 20k more pay.Off topic, but whenever I run into former coworkers they all mention how much worse things have gotten since I left and how much they wish they could leave.
Get out if you can. I know Target DCs pay well, but sometimes it is better to take a temporary pay cut in order to start on a better path elsewhere. Spending your lives worrying that some snot-nosed 23 year old OM is going to fire you is no way to live.
