totally put in a large order today for shit i know i'm going to run out of. i might start a similar binder that @SigningLady started w/ part numbers just so i have them in the future. i can't believe not even TLs can order? that just seems excessive and it feels a lot like something target is going to regret in the long run but what do i know, i've only been here a little over a year. smh, target.
My SDs response was “order a ton of generic stuff before that goes into effect “

And my store still has no fos signing up. No hours to do it. It's literally beyond fucking ridiculous that for years, I was held responsible for making sure the signing was up. But now with modernization, it doesn't matter. To think of all that time I wasted. I could have just thrown it all in the compactor and saved hours upon hours.

Just built the burger overhead for next week. It's pretty cool!
Built mine today too. It is pretty cool but I am really hating these new instructions sheets. Almost messed up the inner white column for the burger because the picture wasn't very helpful. Thank goodness I have extra foam tape on hand!

I am off Tuesday and told my TL she gets to hang the burger. I strongly suggested she use the wave because of the size.

How does your DTL not visit and say any thing about the pallets of signing and no overhead? Seems like your SD/ETL/DTL think overhead just magically work itself up the ceiling.

Lol, I unplugged all weekend and didn't even read here. Xl or xxl. Also mad there red/white lanyard wouldn't let me order it with $30 if other vine stuff in my cart. Sucked butt. I'm doubly annoyed now that I had to take down the whale today because nobody who asked me could be bothered. 🙄
The only t-shirts we had left were L. 😒

The etl's only scurry around when a visit is here. But our sd has been absent for weeks. As for the DTL, who knows. I'm assuming she only knows a few words like .... modernization, cut, and hours ..... so I'm not even sure she knows what signing is.

I would pay to watch someone use the pole on that one. And if he/she succeed, my biggest respect lol

What's best: Put it up on Monday when I get in at 8AM or on Tuesday when I get in at 9AM?

Anyone have direction on the signing organization by area?
Hate to be a broken record .... just don't do it. No FOS signing for almost 3 weeks. I did the TV wall today. I has to cut open the red plastic and dig through a whole pallet to find the fact tags. What a joke thos company has become. And yes, I'm generalizing. I don't care.

Tuesday. Shouldn't take too long since you prebuilt it and that way you aren't jumping the gun on the next "holiday."

Specific direction? No. Any direction? Also no.

Here's what I did (prior to being essentially demoted from signing TM):
Salesplan/revision signing on shelves in the fixture room are divided up by area/TL.
- Beauty & Electronics
- A & Checklanes
- B/C/D
- E/F
- Market
- Softlines signing goes on a shelf in their fixture area of the fixture room
- Any remaining signing (transition or ordered) goes in the steel.

We only have 3 TLs but I split the areas up because some of them get more signing regularly and need more space.

Also note: I still get one day a week to sort signing when it comes in but ASANTS.

I'm choosing to only care about signing on my signing day. I get done everything I can and whatever isn't done, will still be there next week for me. Haven't got to the transition Pets signing yet and still have some small Chem/Paper signing to place. 🤣

Generalize away! It all feels very much like a gigantic joke now. Sarcastic bitching and complaining is pretty much all we got left! And I'm going to own the shit outta that!!

My SD will read it when there’s a visit to make sure and go around asking if we have promo signs up and I just look at him like???????? I don’t put up the ad and I definitely don’t quit every section.

Maybe he meant the Redcard FOS sign or the one they have on every credit card reader.

Today was classic. Finally has a signing shift. My goal? Throw away all the old signing that never got used. I threw away almost two flats of signing and fixtures just to make way for new signing. I feel so modern throwing stuff away. It's so much more efficient then actually putting the signing up.

From the June addendum, when we all change to Go Cart at the end of July-ish, "Only ETL's, PML's and AP team members will have access to place orders in Go Cart." So order, order, order! Write down all the hard to find numbers and kiss the ability to order goodbye!
Wow, this not good news >.> I better order me a few houses, cars, and cash registers XD XD
Guess it doesn't matter, but if we have to order, that will be horrible, cause ETLs will take forever to get it >.>
