Can't go to lunch until it's all or done, or they drop out of the system!
I think the most hours for picks I've ever seen when I was IMS was maybe 15 total.
For sure. I remember doing 20 + hours of frozen or dairy freight a night in 7 or less hours. Yes, we do our fair amount of work here on day shift, but third shift associates are quite unappreciated for the amount work they do.
I've been scheduled 22 hours before. They asked me, seriously mind you, if I would be done before lunch.
My supervisor will tell us how long Process Apparel is (because for some reason, it's not listed under our tasks), and then give us less time than that to finish. And then get upset because we got overtime.
were they on crack?
Nah, I got done with my freight that night but not before lunch
i've got 10 hours of Frozen done before lunch before. It all really depends on what it is. 22 hours is impossible to get done before lunch by yourself though.
Yeah, it was 22 hours of domestics, housewares, furniture, and valentine's day on a two truck night. It was chaotic.
Oh, nice. Having furniture included is just painful.
I know... a guy I know is in the meat department and is almost always cleaning every single night and responsible for stocking all his freight, rotating, pulling the truck and downstacking and be done early before 7am.
If it isn't all done, 1st shift gets pissy.
No overnight picks soon with CAP!
The system is already failing at our store. We went over to it a few days ago and we're still doing picks because CAP isn't getting them done.
It's a disaster.
That's not a failure of the system, that's a failure of your scheduling and associates. Also if you're fully running CAP, you shouldn't have to do Pick Merchandise or Department Picks type picks: the point of CAP associates is to get the reverse picking done and pull out picks while doing so. You're not graded on whether or not picks are done by X time anymore (same with how there's no longer a scorecard of bin accuracy).
What is CAP?
And you can't get overtime... I wish ims was allowed to get OT. Because there is a lot of stuff to bin, during the O/N shift and people keep bringing their overstock back late.
Did they assign multiple associates for that task? We get tasks like that sometimes but with multiple people. For example, 41 hours would be a task for three people. You do the math, 7.5 hour shift = ~13.5 hours for each associate :)
