    Pros

    Guareenteed work, the worst the economy, the better we succeed

    Cons

    To many expectations. To few associates, to low of a payroll. The schedual process needs to be refined. It is mandatory to make the schedual by Wed. On Fri. we recieve a truck delivery time and the number of cases. The mock schedual is refiled for future use and a real one is now made, in addition to calling each associate to be certain ther is no confusion. Rediculious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry less about the bottom line and more about your managers and associates alike. Your stores would offer a better shopping experience and sales would increase. Install a PDT or laser at the delivery door. All managers are responsible for every package that comes through, whether they can confirm what is in and how many cases we recieve. There is a difference between therory and reality.
