Our store is up nearly 40% from last year. Yes. 40%. It has been an absolute nightmare for the past month where a 'busy' wednesday night of 75k suddenly turns into 110k+. We just finally started getting additional salesfloor team hours to keep up with this.
It's stupid, but there's actually nothing your leadership can do about this (at least within the store leadership), it's the way Targets system works.
My store, for example, killed sales pretty much the entire month of March, so we received "flex hours" near the end of the month. We called everyone, backroom, flow, sales floor, cashiers... anyone who wanted more hours, got them. The store was wrecked, the backroom had ghosts all over the places, pFresh needed serious cleaning, and it nearly all got done (which was nice).
However, we still couldn't use all the hours and lost a big chunk of these "flex hours" simply because we couldn't get people to come in and work.
Moral of the story? TMs have to be willing to work to get hours, we had dozens of TMs say they didn't want the hours... my sympathy for ANY of them complaining about not getting enough hours, well it is officially tanked.
