What kind of hours are people getting in receiving? Also who is in charge of sorting out the supplies and signage from the DC?

I'm getting pretty much 30 hours too. Next week 25 so it makes getting MIR's done but things could get worse. Some people are only getting 5 hours next week. I was curious because our signing person isn't the best so I get to pick up some of this persons slack. There are about 5 skids of crap in the steel now. Thanks for the info!

5 skids, whew. Hate to say it but it's not just the signing TM that is slacken. Call out some POG TLs on that one cause I'd like to know just what would take up five skids. Store supplies or ISM or both. wow.

Our store has seen the recieving hours getting cut over the last four weeks, to the pain of our MIR scores. As for store supplies, the signing TM handles all of it since, at my store, he does all the ordering.

The short hours are tough because the MIR's don't fall until Tuesday so you lose Mondays to work on them. Wednesday is shot too because between vendors and loading the sweep your day is shot again so that leaves 3 days to do them. Coming in at 7 only leaves 1 hour to do them in the morning and leaving at 1 leaves 1/2 hour to do them after lunch. Sucks....:wacko:

I know it's tough...but remember it's better to be giving hours than receiving hours.....


YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!

i would seriously wonder why you have 5 ISM pallets- that would be a really big backup. you shouldnt have received that many at once recently. the most maybe if you havent set patio yet, but shouldn't be five. check maybe and see if you have a remodel coming up - destnation beauty has 2 rollouts this month and if you are one of those stores that should have started and gets about 5 pallets. group 1 should already be through half of these so maybe group 2? otherwise theres really not much reason to have that many right now

Signing handles all the supplies, signing and fixture pallets.
Receiving has been scheduled 32 hours but usually winds up working 38.

Yeah, our receiver is getting 35-40 hours a week. She is fantastic. (We have a signing specialist who handles all signing pallets that come in.) She made us all brownies today. It was great.

I usually get anywhere from 38 to 40 hours, I do all of the supplies and I also deliver them. Signing person does signs, I also help with flow team, pull all of my MIRs and sweep. Gets rough at times, but sometimes you have to multitask.

When i am caught up I work in the backroom. I fill spill stations 3x a week too. Now that the Mir's have slowed down a little it's not as bad but like you said it's a little rough at times! There are 3 skids of supplies and 2 skids of signs right now.

We got two people that are normally working receiving; one always gets 40 and the other works full days when the normal guy isnt there. We've got two signing specialists who take care of all the signing stuff. As for supplies it is receiving that takes care of them.

Our receiver gets about 32 to 35 hours and she is great. She handles all the defectives. I never had time to take a break nevertheless get those. She separates the supplies but the signing tm takes care of those pallets. She helps wherever she can backroom or flow and she is the best.

Ditto. We also have someone who comes in for 4 hours to help our specialist. He usually does the MIRs and covers breaks.

That would be great! A little help would be nice sometimes. Mondays I come in to a desk that's completely covered with crap from the weekend. All of the defects are piled up on the tub and on the floor beside it. The CRC and Salvage skids are full (usually just on the front of the skids) and piled on the floor. There are skids of freight all over receiving that have to be moved from in front of the dock doors....I could go on and on and on........ oh and I haven't taken a break in months.

Wow, I thought that only happened in my store, it is good to know that someone out there shares the same frustrations as I do.

We have two receiving people. One gets 40 hours, the other is semi-retired and works about 21-26 or so hours per week. One of our backroom guys also does receiving (usually to do the sweep on Thursdays).

Oh,and if I want a break, I have to take it at my desk, (15 minutes) and I take lunch when the vendors are all gone. 11:45.

Wow! I'm the only receiver and I'm getting 26 week after next. Next week is 28. I hope it gets better. With the amount of hours I get it's hard to worry about the quality of work. You're always in a major hurry to get it done. I'm not the type of person to half way do things so it bothers me but what can you do?
