I know this is signing but you’re all experts it seems..... I’m a new TL over pricing Plano with zero TMs to learn from and a store that won’t send me out for training..... I’ve been with target for two years so I have a great understanding on pogs and setting and really enjoy it but i have zero clue how pricing works besides scanning clearance and put on the tickets. Can you give a good daily routine? I’m trying to catch up from there being no one for a month on pricing. I have about 3000 labels to do and not really sure the best way to go about it. How can you activate and print with just a my device so I can go aisle by aisle? Right now I’m using store applications and printing by due date so I’m constantly doing circles around the store.
Have you considered printing all of the late labels at once? That way you'd have all the labels needed with you and could just go into the PC app and into the late workload which should path through each block. Once something is late in the app, it all gets lumped together in the current day's workload. Downside is you'd have to dig through all the labels to find the correct one the app is telling you to activate.
Daily routine would be to print all the labels needed for that day and get those activated/placed first. Then you can go back into that day's divisions to hit up further markdowns and endcaps. Alternately, you can also complete divisions before moving out of a block, saves some steps backtracking (I prefer finishing all the labels first). Inline clearance can get activated as you put up new labels. Backroom is last and then worked to the floor.
