Been doing it for a while already. Be prepared to lose your availability, some people will unload at 10, some people come in at 7-9 to clear off yesterday's truck, and even more people come in in the afternoon. Just last week we had a truck finish at 5pm.
I already get slowed down so much pushing after the store opens, between assisting a guess and getting out of their way. It's going to be so much worse at 10am, especially on weekends. I avoid Walmart in the evening rush because they start truck unloads at 2pm.

Came across this video. I haven't been with Target that long but have trucks ever been packed this nicely? Also, moving as slow as they are on the line would get you a talking to at my store.

That recruiting video was like major bullsh!t. They were all clean and happy. Hell, he didn't even finish working the truck. The truck was staged so badly. He didn't even need a crown to lift the stuck door from all of the freight pushed up against it. Where is the pallet with the cat litter stacked on the paper? Or the pallet of water that's leaning at a 45 degree angle.

The only thing that was missing was the fire pit out back with everyone sitting around it holding hands and singing, "Kumbaya my Spot."

There's another one where it shows ETL-AP helping zone and cashier. I've never seen AP doing non-AP work on the sales floor, even before I was a TM.

Don't the trailers get acknowledged later too? So product on the trailer shouldn't even show up in picks until ~9:30, or whenever Inbound acknowledges the trailer.
They’re supposed to, but not all TLs/ETLs think

Why is ETL Craig throwing the truck? 🤔
