Wtf? Is corporate doing by making managers spend 6hrs of their shifts scanning daily?
Permalink   


All of a sudden our managers have to scan hundreds of product daily. It takes them 6 of their 10 hr shift to do it so now they have zero time to do their jobs.  Wtf? Isn't this supposed to be a night crew thing? I recall doing it on n.c. but why are the managers all of a sudden responsible for it?

Possibly because n.c. is screwing up. All it takes is one or two stores to make this different. Management may not like it either. And it wouldnt surprise me if management "got back" at n.c. for making management waste over half their shifts scanning.

Stupid question.......it "In-Stock" is so important, shouldn't there be a focus on making sure the FE scans every items. How many people know of a cashier that will only scanning 1 items for 30, because they are all the "same price". Also, shouldn't there be a focus on scanning the boxes coming in? Also, are these managers also really looking at the "Top Shelf"? I have walked down a number of aisle and see so many items just thrown up there, without any organization. Its one things to put the 1-5 items from the case up there, another when multiple cases are up there.

What are they scanning?   Backstock from the previous nights' truck, old backstock or random stock?

Who is scanning?  Day grocery manager or store managers?

How long has nc been spotting everything and running stock off the floor(conditioning as they go)?  Then, the night manager does residual scan on all the backstock.  We started 9 months ago.  It was a mess at first but has improved some.  I was spending 2 hours scanning residual backstock and another hour putting it away because the rest of nc already clocked out....  That would be great if the day managers had to do it at our store.  lol.  Sunday night is the worst.  We get a lot of small distros(1 or 2 cases of 100 different products).  Cao does not show it was received while I am scanning backstock.  If a number looks high, I have to do cntrl O to see that it hasn't been received.

There was another issue within last 2 months in our division.  When clicklist switched to a different handheld, the sales were not being deducted from the BOH correctly.  There was a glitch that basically deducted the same sold product multiple times from the BOH.  This caused 1000s of BOHs to go negative.  I might be exaggerating on number but it was a lot.  Then cao was ordering to refill shelves but everything was already on backstock.  I noticed it the day it started and was able to keep up with most of it so our backstock did not get out of control.  IT solution:  They fixed the glitch.  Now, each store needs to scan all 15000 grocery items and make sure the BOHs are correct.  We were given extra hours in elms.

EUID is right about scanning every item.  I will never have the right boh on sparkling ICE, cat food cans or individual gatorade.  I wait until they are out of stock and zero them out then.

This is new. All of a sudden they've started this program this week. It's not just at my store but other sin my area too. I guess this is what happens when your night crew is two people and one calls out half the time so the store has to close. I've been picking up extra hrs by doing the duties n.c. is fail on. I did n.c. before so I know how to do err.. most of it. Have an idea of it basically.

If NC did their job properly then management wouldnt have to do nc's job. Hell, even I have to clean up after them...leaving boxes on the floor in some aisles, bailing THEIR cardboard etc.. and if you say anything, they have a tizzy fit and get mad.

 I can see how the Pickup (ClickList) system might have messed up.  When a customer picks up their order, the order is "Tendered" on the POS (basically the same process as on the Front End).  I'm sure the system was recording 2X items sold for 1 item.  BOH being reduced when the item is scanned by the Selector and another when the transaction is actually "Tendered" on POS.  While customer might have a "Pending" charge when placing the order, "Tendering" the order at POS is the final step to actually fully charge the customer.  This hiccup wouldn't surprise me at all, too often Corporate Departments do not fully think out a new process and or ask someone outside the project to share their input and or try to  "break it" before launch.
