Grace period "abuse".

At my store they recently implemented a new rule that the 7 minute grace period can only be used once a week. Anything after that will result in a tm receiving a quarter point for attendance, even if it is 1 minute past your scheduled start time... —  read more 

Union Buzz

Hearing Unions are active in NYC, Brooklyn and the Island. Memberships are down and COVID hurt their membership dues. Perfect timing to move in with COVID bonus gone and staffing issues in most stores. That would be a big win for the Unions!!

Good luck Columbus stores!

Of all the people I know that were laid off, the only one that I thought deserved it has reapplied and is now your metro-marketing TL. Hope you don't have any cool events or ideas you want to promote! Hard working people in marketing with years of... —  read more

Bone us!

Thanks for the bonus that was paid for by hiring freezes and dunking on TM morale. Also, good call, giving $1000, to store leadership. They definitely deserve it more than workers on the floor.

Prime shoppers

Anyone else’s store hiring tons of shoppers but no Team members for the departments? My store gets destroyed by Prime and not enough help to fill up the aisles. When will someone recognize that we need a balance. So sick of hearing the word headcount... —  read more

Cleaning house?

One of our astl’s was asked to step out while store leadership cleaned house so she wouldn’t be involved. Guess what? You involved too many people so for them to shut up 100% ? Not realistic. Never bring a friend of a friend. Stl will over look... —  read more 

Working us to the bone!

What is the directive from regional or global? We got direction from regional to move the bulk of team members to the am and have a skeleton crew at night. Seems Store leaders are unaware or they play dumb. Since this whole covid-19 started there... —  read more

Unionization heatmap

I've always been told not to call the 'tipline'. I was told ten years ago WFM had a team that would go to stores about to organize and give them free hot bar and scooters at store meetings (temporary perks). That was a weird time. I would love it... —  read more 

Conscious Capitalism
