Trendspot is called CB1 now
It’s still trend spot the same way CB2 is still amp gifting. CB1 and CB2 are celebratory 1 and 2.

Also the only issue I see with the titles is PMT is PML not PMTL. Not a team leader just a lead

Modernization speak and what it really means:-

How are you doing on that uboat?
Hurry the fuck up cause you’re slow.

Let me know when you’re done with your uboat.
Hurry the fuck up so I can give you more shit to do.

Are you zoning as you push?
Your zone looks like shit.

Can you do these 2 sales planners today?
Fuck you and your push, SD wants TWT at 97%.

Can you stay longer?
You have to stay , otherwise we’ll starve you for hours?

Can you do your reshop?
Fuck you.

Can someone clear the callbox in domestics?
Walk across the store and clear the box, you are the only GM tm scheduled.

I'm never shy about not being able to do stuff. I'm not the fastest pusher there is and my department has me constantly having to make room for moms and their ginormous landboat buggies, helping them for 10+ minutes regarding some thing or the other, etc. It's a recipe for snail's pace. I didn't even get audits done tonight, it was so bad.

I'm really starting to not care about how my pace might get me in trouble. Today was just exhausted, ugh...

I share your pain. I work in a couple areas back and forth at the moment and constantly have to do carry outs for large items and answer the dumbest questions about obscure things our Target does not carry or does not have in stock because they came in 4 weeks after it was advertised or some shit. (edit: our guests like the weirdest, oddest shit we sell that literally we get maybe two cases of and it's gone forever) Takes up loads of my time and I stress sometimes about it but I'm starting to just shrug it off and go whatever my bosses can say what they want I did my absolute best and I am a fast pusher btw. The slower pushers at my store seem to get very little scrutiny but that is my store and I make no jab at you.
