Ahoy! I'm a relatively new Signing TM, having been Flow TM for about 5 years. I've trained in Price and POG, and have really found my niche with Signing. The guy I replaced became an SFT for a nearby store after 5 years of Signing, and he picked me specifically because he recognized the 'weird kind of person' it requires. I've been at it for 6 months or so, and have survived my first Xmas set. I'm pretty good friends with most everyone in my store especially my Presentation TL, who has defended me on several points where there have been clashes of opinion.I've decided that Ballerino will mean the male version of a ballerina, and I think I've gotten pretty darn good at driving the little Wave lift thing, so sign me as Wave Ballerino. Our fixture room is L-shaped, so I've had to learn to drive the thing backwards first when going in to get anything high once I've made sure everyone else is out and won't get blocked in.. prevents having to pilot the thing backwards on the way out instead and accidentally squish any planogram cuties trying to print labels. My SFT one day showed me the special SFT wiki-like forum they have where they can discuss between other SFTs problems with a particular project and such, so I wondered if there were such a thing for Signing and did some investigating -- and turns out there is, but no one uses it, possibly because so few know about it. Signing Sharepoint, I think it is called. There is no individual login, just a generic "Store#-Signon" and the only other guy to post on it was the site admin from ~2011. I emailed the guy who posted it, who said he is no longer over the project, but the site is still up and works just fine and presumably unmoderated. I wish more people knew about it and used it, because I could really use some pointers on specifics on occasion..
