Heh, I have an ETL-HR that sits in her office all day and she's only been on the job a little over a year and isn't over 25. Has the easiest position in the store besides the mask distributor. Couldn't be bothered to lift a finger anywhere in the store or learn anything to be able to help when needed. The store could have massive callouts and breakdowns in different areas and she's totally oblivious to everything. You can't sit there and say with a straight face that you are working on HR tasks 100% of the time during an 8-10 hour shift. So what is it? Scheduling? The other ETLs handle that. Talent management/acquisition? Heh, we're lucky if we receive more than three applications in a week. Paperwork? We're not doing complex corporate taxes & accounting here. I'm thinking TikTok/Instagram, texting and online shopping are a significant portion of her workday.To the ETL-HR: I appreciate the fact that you support Guest Services and help with Order Pick-ups when the line is really long. The last ETL-HR mostly stayed in her office because I guess she was worn out and about to retire.
Go find that tm & get them on the same page as you.TTOTM: Alright, I made my peace with your overstocking. I made my peace with you rolling the frieght for me to deal with the next day. I made my peace with you not touching reshop. I even sort of made my peace with you putting casepacks in my backroom aisle. I've grown to tolerate your lack of zoning. I mean, it's not cool and all, but whatever. I like to zone, so sure, after being off I'll spend the first hour of my shift zoning, doing reshop and pulling your overstock off the shelves. Then, I'll start on your rolled freight. It's all good.
But, today I learned that you flexed out a bunch of my fall transition and it's now orderable online. Thank you. Thank you so much for that. I really enjoyed spending time today helping fulfillment dig through repacks to find what they needed. Even better my fill percentage went down today for those endcaps, so I'm even further away from being able to set them early. Asshat.

That's why I'm glad Style doesn't really have DBOs anymore, at least not in my store. I was getting way too aggravated that my area was not being maintained to my standards when I wasn't there. Now I just go with the flow (well, for the most part, lol) and do my best when I'm there.I have discussed the matter with my TL and ETL. They're working on hiring more bodies so that new people can be trained properly to fill in on my off days. We'll see how that goes. We're thinking the current fill-ins, who have been with the store a long time, are lost causes.
