    At a ULV store, I don't bother getting exercise and don't bother zoning at night. It is almost a free pass in Jan/Feb. Here is a typical night- A call button goes off in red-no worries. You and 1 other person in Hardlines are the only 2 present on the floor and that person is on a lane. So, you go sprinting to get the call. Then, you rush up from red to answer back up on a lane because you are the one and only person available since the other person is on a lane. Then, back to your section to zone with only 1 item in your hand and again, a call button goes off.
    I would like to state @TARGET-thanks for the free exercise. I should cancel my gym membership in Jan/Feb.
    Also, ULV stores scare me at night. You have 5-8 people max in a big-a$$ store, cash from the entire day and what better time to rob a place? Yeah, we have cameras but so, too, does a bank and they get robbed.

    I hear ya boo about the exercise. I am hardlines at a pretty busy store. In a year and a half I lost 35 pounds and went down 4 sizes just by working. Running from one side of store to the other when other tm's are on register or on break. Or just plain don't answer anything(got 2 of them).

    I can't imagine this applying to larger volume stores, but everyone having everyone as friends on Facebook. That is just kind of ridiculous to me. Unless you're the most easy-going social butterfly, I don't get it.

    I know one that has an APTL who works 40 hours plus two part time TPS at 20 hours each, so they actually have AP coverage a lot. Of course they are in a really horrible neighborhood, so that explains it.
