Let me link you back to this post for your daily download, or if you haven't seen it yet.

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.

my favoritest shift, when managing at Petsmart, was the 4am to 2pm shift - for receiving and throwing our main freight shipment. sometimes, I really miss it. I don't remember if I told you this before, or not, but two of my fave employees came in with me for that shift. ironically, the three of us were the most chronically late employees in that store... but, hey, just one of the many things we had in common :)

I hated RTV's. mostly because every manager did them differently, and none were quite how we were 'trained' to do them. so, no matter what, I got yelled at when it was my turn.

if I work at another Petsmart again, I'll probably go in as a stocker - nice, relatively mindless work.

Sad to look back at this list and realize how freaking much I do now - I still do all of this, but this makes up only about 1/3 of my current job duties as an Operations Supervisor. Granted, I'm waaaay behind.

I dread freight days now, as I can't stop thinking of all the other things I could be getting done if I wasn't spending two days out of every five to put things away.
