My store(ULV) moved from 4 to 6 a couple of weeks ago, so far we haven't had too many problems with it. To make up for the loss of 2 hours, they grab the Instocks/POG Teams to come in at 6 and help push until 8, when they go on to do their own things. Pricing was on that list too, but they managed to worm their way out of it. I've also noticed that some of the Flow TM's actually arrive at 5:30 to prepare buggies/start unloading the truck. We had a few problems with equipment but we seem to be doing okay for now.
I haven't seen the effects it's had on POG yet, but the only reason it hasn't affected us(Instocks, as if you couldn't tell
) is because our ETL-Log has us just doing Rigs/RSCH(probably in preparation for the software update). We also have until noon to shoot now, as opposed to 11. 11 o'clock CAFs were removed, too.
As far as the AD goes, we were given more people to do it but it suffers the same problem you guys mentioned above: being scheduled only 2-3 hours. Our longest record now since moving to 6 is 10:30.
While it has been just peachy for my store so far, I worry about what's going to happen once Fourth Quarter rolls along.
Before we moved, our Flow TL reccomended getting Cashier Trained and looking into picking up shifts for POG/Instocks/Pricing/Cashier/Salesfloor/AD on Sundays. I see a lot of Flow TM's working the Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday PFresh trucks too, if that's an option for your store.
