Punch corrections. You need to be paid for reading it.
Same situation as mine. Pics, ideas for encaps, notifications on upcoming visits etc. we even had a TL respond back, “can I go to sleep now” lol. He was furious about it and last I heard before I quit they were trying to get rid of them.All of the TLs are in a group message. It’s a constant stream of texts. I have it on do not disturb, but I get at least 30 texts a day from it 🙄
I’m a department manager (recently changed from salary to hourly) at another company and I prefer that my assistant managers text me no matter what time it is to keep me in the loop. I even give my number out to my team members if they really need me. I get that some people want “work life balance” but for me there is no such thing. I am living my life when I’m at work or not. I’d rather know that at all times things are going well with work and my personal life but maybe I’m just crazy.
Telling people under you they can text you is 100% different than your boss('s boss) texting you constantly under entirely their own accord.I also have given my best TMs my number and they are welcome to let me know of any issues. It’s handy for making heads roll when the hardlines closing team is made to do some dumb shit like fill produce and dairy instead of zoning. Well known fact at my store that the walls have eyes and ears, and those eyes and ears belong to me 😂
