Transferring to a store

  1. So, I'm looking to move and the closest DC will be a 2 hour drive away. Not really do-able. My plan is to transfer to a store in the meantime just to keep a paycheck going (even though I know it will be a large pay cut). Has anyone done this in the past and have any advice? I'm curious about any work there that would be comparable or what I'd be good at doing. I'd like to avoid customers if possible yet still work day hours. Not sure if that's even a thing! Thanks in advance.
  2. Dayside backroom. It's what I did prior to transferring to the RDC. It's a lot like Warehouse Dept, albeit on a much smaller scale, a little more freedom, and no prod to worry about.

    You may also like Receiving/Reverse Logistics. Usually not many openings for that position, but it's day-side and it's analogous to IM mixed with Packet Office duties. Also pretty chill, if very
    detailed and paper-work focused.

    Both positions are in the back, so guest exposure is limited.
  3. You will have reduce hours in the 1st qtr. Spot does that at the stores every year. Be ready for that.

    Thanks fellas. Sounds like it should be a breeze.
