merchandising plans

I realise that this won't be very high on most people's radar but, why do so many of the new 1 in 1 out plans still have Find/Fit errors attached. It isn't as if you will put them out is it :D ;D

Perhaps more importantly is the enormous workload for week 12. The first week with halved hours, new staff etc.
You'd think someone somewhere would have looked at this .....
couldn't make it up.

Doesn't bother me if it all blows up in their faces....the bigger workload the better it ain't going to get done.👍

I totally agree,as I have been part of the latest staff cull >:D Just thinking of all the folk who have to try to make sense of the new system thought up by some half-wit, who more than likely has never worked instore. >:( Early retirement for me :D ;D couldn't have come at a better time for me (-*-)

The plans were always rubbish... thing never fit... facings and locations get changed by fillers etc so the new one in one out and tick off the rest is just c**p.. no time to keep up standards in the new routines... we merchandisers didn't just move stuff... we cleaned shelves we fixed broken fixtures we replaced bumper and stripping.... new teams have no time allotted for this... stores will look so tatty and tired in no time... I'm glad and sad I got my redundancy... glad cause I would constantly push against this new process and try to execute the old ways with higher standards than are required now... but sad for the people I leave behind... especially the new space rangers... one of our last jobs was to rip out all the base shelves from power aisles 1&2 all but top shelf and capping... to make space for the stack it high sell it cheap pallets... it took forever... imagine the state of the flood under the fixtures  :o anyway it all got done pallets look rubbish and even worse half shopped... but nevertheless it got done... find out my day of exit... Father's Day it's all going back to shelves and the merch team is tiny and inexperienced.... oh dear... best of luck with that!!!!

Before we got shown the door we decided to ignore the palletised plans and just shelved everything. Obviously the muppets at Head Orifice hadn't realised that it is rather hard to overface on a pallet :D ;D >:(

I am the last one standing in my store 4 part timers took redundancy as there hours did not fit with heat map I was job matched.  The moves up to week 14 are huge for fresh changes this week, told it's ok I will get some overtime to help you, where from no one left and apparently not needed I get so angry.  My co workers loved their jobs and not want to leave as well
