Red store can mean a lot of things but to sum it up things are bad. Zone and instocks are typically the big flags from visits. As allnew2 mentioned, metrics can play into it but for the most part you will know things are bad before metrics start to hit you. Take a look around your store and think for a minute.. if someone from corporate were to visit your store, what are some of the big things they would call out?

Means upper mgmt is screwed. (unless the #s change.)
Good. Let s see some trainng for they/them/he/she on how to properly/efficiently communicate to TM s through a walkie...as in..wait longer then 7 seconds before screaming a second request for backup...then waiting 5 seconds before calling names from the grid not knowing where the heck anyone actually is working...and maybe the drones on the floor that actually run the store will give a shit.

It means you can expect lots and lots of visits, and your actual work center will be left to rot because your ETLs will keep pulling you from it to help them sweep problems under the rug, fluff up their pet metrics and fill empty endcaps with bullshit--without store-trying anything, of course--and then you'll be chewed out for falling behind on your normal workload because you're clearly working too slowly.
