If they eliminate my position, that's fine. But that's it for me maintaining that fixtire room. No more sweeping up all the trash. No more ordering all the fundamentals we need. No more .... "Unknown, can you help me find that thingy I need." Nope, not this girl.
Yeah if it happens I'll lie and say they took away my SAP access.

No need to lie. I'm part of the modernization pilot and once they switched my job code to gm expert, my SAP access went away. But the silver lining is that my HR and STL switched me back to signing after they found out.
...Yeah my STL 100% would give me SAP access back if it went away.

I feel like even though these positions are eliminated, there's still going to be goto folks for certain tasks.
This is true. If it goes away at my store, they'll make me VM and then just keep me as signing.

Finished magnetic dividers in toys.

Pretied everything I could for the next two weeks.

Team finished this week's work and is doing next week's diaper workload.

Sucks that our store can't use the lego archway signing because one of our lego aisles happens to have one of the toy focals. It would have to be angled between the two, and I doubt it would even reach across in that case.
I put mine on the back of the aisle

Did they remove the magnetic dividers from sap? I asked MySupport for a shit ton and they haven't gotten back to me. We just finished grocery and had to use adhesive ones.

Started with dog toys because I wanted to make sure the BARK backer paper went up right this time. Then did everything but food.

Litter was a bitch.

Monday, August 20th. I haven't seen the adjacency map come in yet.
Map was on workbench but it's messed up...I would post a picture but it'll reveal my location. Basically someone quickly whipped out a map but forgot to draw lines to indicate gondolas, the wall...etc. I had to print out a BTS map to lay under the seasonal map to try and trace what I could. Had to use the computer screen as a light box to make it work! Billion dollar company and I'm spending my time drawing lines! Oh well, someone's got to do it!

They want to put dry market there and take the current market for softlines breakout. Our backroom is tiny for a B volume. Every other store that's ulv near us has twice the space. Everybody is getting fucked if they take the fixture room though. It won't fit in one trailer...
Your fixture room is in a trailer, outside?

So when this happens, who gets fired?

They've backed off on taking the fixture room. But I'm losing my 8ft of steel. That they just finished fucking squeezing down from 12ft. Two years ago the middle trailer was my storage. And the lock on the fixture room is broken and "we can't get a core"

I would go butter up your AP TL because they can get a core for anything they want. I believe if all fixture room locks are the same then ask he/she to order you a #23 core. Look at your pad lock where you insert the key. Mine says "23." I recently finally got fed up and started locking my fixture room. I also sent an email out to all the ETL's and TL's to be on board with keeping it locked when the presentation team leaves for the day. It has been hit and miss but at least the expectation is set. I hold everyone accountable for keeping the fixture room brand. This also keeps the "lazy" people out from just dropping off fixtures..."There's A Place for Everything!" And not just on my desk! LOL! It's still a work in progress but it at least keeps random backstock vehicles from being staged in there just because of the empty beautiful space...😁. I know people are pissed off since I started locking it but it's my space!
