Hey, I just wrote out four ideas and when I went to post it I was told that I didn't have the correct access (type of message).
So my ideas for you went to the great graveyard of lost replies.
I'll try to share my ideas again....but not tonight!
we do target dollars. Each redcard you get, you receive a "dollar" to spend at food ave or starbucks. Also top performers for the week get either Spot or some other merchandise. Both seem to work pretty well.
I use to do gift baskets when I was GSTL. You'd start off with a small basic gift basket and add an item to it every time someone got a red card. Everyone who got a red card, name would go into a basket for the week end drawing. I did themed baskets, like movie night, summer picnic etc.... My team got a huge kick out of it, especially when it became a "music lovers" dream basket and my STL requisitioned out a iPod Nano to go in the basket! That week we honestly had 90+ red cards! Got major Group/district recognition for that.
Ok, as an over 50 cashier, I would not mind candy. Sexual harassment because she got candy for getting red cards! It boggles the mind. And mine is boggled enough as it is:wacko:.I spent a year as a GSTL.
I would definitely *not* recommend candy or anything like that if you have older cashiers. (read: 25 years or older) The reason is - they see it as patronizing them, (form of harassment) basically like you are treating them like a kid. I made the mistake of giving a 50 something year old cashier a few times (because she kept getting red cards), and ended up on a counseling for harassment. She had an attorney come to the store and was ready to sue us. Basically they had to write me up to prevent a lawsuit.
anyone doing anything more recently they'd care to share?? Our conversion score has hit rock bottom and i want to take a bunch of ideas to my ETL tomorrow.
My store is red for conversion and our wonderful new GSTL is getting on everyone's case that has a "low conversion rate," i.e. anyone who doesn't get a ridiculous number of Red Cards in one shift. I wish we had an incentive for the guests to open Red Cards; our conversion rate depends on them after all, not necessarily us! It doesn't matter how many times we ask guests if they'd like to save 5% today and every day by opening a Red Card; the fact is, no one wants to open a credit card in today's economy, and few people carry their checkbooks for the check card app.
