Is it accessed via the adjacency calendar tool? I want to find estimated hours needed for any given week -- for Plano, Price Accuracy, etc. (Note: I'm aware of the Promotional Signing Guidelines resource for signing prep, setup, takedown.)
I've been doing that too, with checking adjancenies and such. I use to use HOST all the time, I use to look at both reports (Host and Wrkbench) to schedule. However, they just recently deactivated the HOST report for pricing workload. UGH..........I have been noticing that too. Im forecasted like 2000 eaches so i will schedule for that but then it ends up being like 3100. Even though i follow the forecasted eaches. Mysupport was no help. To help me with that ive been checking what adjacencies and transitions are coming up usually depending on how big it is i can guesstimate if i will have a lot of eaches. Does anybody still use the host report for price change workload?
I'm sitting at 40 hours and 10,500 eaches for pricing this week. As soon as I got the payroll forecast I told the STL there was no way we were meeting payroll.I use the rule of 800-1,000 etches per person. So if you had a 4,115 each day like I have tomorrow, I have four people scheduled. Of course that has a number of factors that go into it. How good is the zone, etc... Labels are sometimes heavy, however if you know the pattern of labels you should be able to estimate when your labels will be the heaviest. Our label work is always heavyset on Thursdays, due to our COMP Shop, being completed on Tuesdays. So even if the workload for clearance is small, I always schedule someone 5 hours with another Team member to complete daily workload.
The problem that I am encountering right now is that the forecasted hours aren't matching the projected workload. According to max for this week, it's a 4,000 each week and i got 45 hours. However according to the workbench forecast it's a 10,000 each week. I my supported it and there response was less than helpful. My STL are sitting on a conference call on Friday with our GOL to see whats going on! anyone else seeing a discrepancy?
Welcome to The Break Room.Was this the week the urgent news came out that said the forecast tool was not updating accurately? At least you guys have an STL who will give you more payroll and who actually cares, etc. Mine has told me to never talk to him about needing more payroll, has told me to tell my ETL the problem and let her fix the problem without spending any extra payroll. Side note: my store has no softlines ETL, so my boss is HLines over market...
You go to the 'alert' line about your store team leader and they will congratulateThanks, what's funny is my STL has been at this store for 15+ years and with Target for 25+ years. I can't understand why he is an STL. Has noone ever called the alert line on this terrible boss?? I'm sure I will soon, unless I can transfer.
