I don't want to work tonight. It's not that I hate my job - everything BUT! - I don't feel like throwing freight tonight. I would rather work on back room stuff to get it all caught up since back to school.
I hadn't realized that I do so much until Captain Kirk introduced the four trainees to me yesterday:
This is Aubrey.
She takes care of the RTV's - when the vendor buys back their product, she pulls it from the floor, packages it up and ships it out to them.
She prints out a report that states when something of our numbers has dropped below zero. This is called the 'Negative On Hand' report. She then researches it and corrects the number in the computer.
She takes care of the price changes that come through every single day.
She takes care of making sure that everything is properly labelled out on the floor.
She processes all of the defects that come through here - researching where they need to go and whether they get shipped back to the vendor or destroyed.
She processes the Destroy reports - pulling and destroying any merchandise the vendor no longer wants us to sell.
She shoots Outs - takes an RF gun and goes through the entire store, shooting anything with an empty spot. She then pulls up a report of this and researches each item, seeing if we are really out, or if it just needs to be downstocked. Without this process, many things won't get sent to us, if our numbers are off. Very important.
She takes two of her five shifts a week to throw freight and put everything on the shelf.
She ships anything that any of us in the store needs shipped.
She processes store transfers.
She receives any frieght that comes in the store - whether it's the twice weekly store shipment, or shipments from food, book, or dated goods vendors.
The list went on, but as I have to go wait for my ride soon, and my hair is still in a towel....
In case you wondered what I do in my new position ;)
And, again - this would be so much easier to stay on top of, if I didn't have to do freight! Most times, it doesn't bother me, but I'm SO not in the mood today. At least Liz is coming in at 4 am to help us.
