Put up most of the overheads today, and those BTC ones around the store are seriously going to kill somebody. Heaviest ones I can remember in a while and only being supported by two cables... had to double up one of them that was hanging right above a futon display or I couldn't sleep at night.
What do these look like? I only have the ones that go over the bulk bins.

It's Monday at 4pm and nothing built. I can't go into specifics, but someone that's salaried at my store put the pallets somewhere unattainable until today. But hey, that's clearly MY fault because I'll still ultimately be held accountable for why everything isn't finished this week.

Nevermind any of the facts that I tried to explain to anyone that would listen that we should have been building last week. It's warning a child not to touch a red hot stove. Don't do it. Don't do it. But they have to find out for themselves.
Your blood must boil everyday. I would feel the same.

Yeah they didn't send me any dump bins. Also didn't send a few of the shippers I needed, and a couple of other fun mixups.
I got lucky. I got the back half of the dump bin I'm missing, and it had the STATH.03916.24836 whatever number on it, so I instantly MySupported.

Everybody pushes tomorrow but me :D

Could someone post the instructions for the FOS. My mangled box didn't have any. Please and thank-you!

Anyone here got a photo of what the locker t-frame is meant to look like? POG images are not a good reference to go by.

Regarding FOS overhead. Careful which string attachment you use.

Left is used to dangle the flat, little stars to the bottom of built stars. Right 6" ones are to connect 2 built stars together so that it angles.

They don't clearly tell you which is which until the last step when it is already hooked to ceiling.

Yeah, I didn't attach my stars together. I couldn't envision it making much difference, so I left it.
I have no intention of doing that. Fuck off with this angling shit, it's bad enough that I have to build and put up 38 stars.

It will add your pretie locations to the pick label of the carton, so when the merch. comes off the truck, it can easily be sorted, stage, and pushed w/o using a zebra. This is mainly used in upcoming transitions, search for pre-tie schedule on workbench on when and which dept should be pretied. Usually you want to do this 2 weeks in advance.

Pre-tying will not automatically tie your POG, you still have to do it manually the day it sets. DO NOT tie it earlier than the day it sets! Only pre-tie.
What happens if a pog is tied early then set date??

Can you ask your hubby or your connections on why salesplanners have schematics in reverse??? I did chemicals and all were like that, but did notice this for awhile now.
