    I just looked at my schedule for next week (3/26-4/1) and I have an inventory shift (7pm-11pm), so what should I be expecting?

    SKU Check is what the crew who do the inventory yells out when they can't identify a product and some poor sucker has to do research on it.
    If you've done a night with Regis it's a bit of a nightmare especially if they've swept the streets for a bunch of druggies to get a crew.
    Don't worry about it.
    You'll probably be part of a team for getting the store neatened up for inventory and won't have to mess with that.

    Yessss! I worked for another retailer and we used Regis. We always said " bunch of homeless people now have jobs and got paid better than we did.

    Almost 90% of them smoke outside. Its horrible.

    If it's 7pm-11pm you'll just be doing inventory prep, which is more than likely just super zoning on the sales floor.

    Super zoning the sales floor, if you ever go overnight it'll be location updates and zoning the Backroom.

    Kaitii You're gushing all kinds of fluids again

    If you're doing backroom prep prepare for a good time zoning wacos and writing numbers on boxes and probably bring headphones if your leadership is ok w/ it

    If you're doing salesfloor prep it was nice knowing you

    I believe they're big into hiring reformed convicts, only people they can really get to do that job.

    Like others have said, your probably super zoning the floor, while the inventory guys finish scanning the backroom. But if for some reason you hear sku check (usually not on file, missing packaging, online only stuff), you want to find the DPCI for that item by either physically looking for the same one or use your mydevice. Now if you cant find that item, look for a similar item with similar price and just give them that DPCI.

    I did a night with Regis and it was a nightmare. A couple Regis people were "normal" the rest looked like dirty druggies. One lady kept throwing the merchandise to the ground while yelling SKU check. I wanted to punch her lol. One lady laid down in front of the service desk and took a nap. I will gently decline if they ask me this year to be part of the overnight inventory crew.

    What's a financials table? (Side note: Just agreed to my first overnight inventory shift for price change...I'm a backup for pricing and one of our regulars cannot do it, so here I am. Kinda want to know what I'm in for...kinda don't.

    The stuff that won't scan or doesn't have a ticket. You figure it out. Much better than sku checks. May be called something else at your store.
