Am I the only one who thinks there is way to much emphasis placed on this one day.

When I mentioned it on this board couple of years ago, they all said "what's a Christmas tour". so I think it must just be certain regions.
the idea is not bad having stores compete -again, but the timing is way off. We had ours already, did not do good this year..and I hear tell the group went snooping for non Cmas items.

This is a colossal waste of time. This is probably something that a group of MVPS dreamed up at a meeting together. It has never been beneficial and it should be thrown out the window along with webinars, action plans, engagement plans, receipt surveys and other stupid corporate ideas that really do not generate anything positive.

Seriously. What in hell is that all about??? We are under staffed over worked but yet these morons drive around to go look at stores that don't normally look that pristine. They only do because everyone knows those morons are on their way. Stupid ass waste of time and money. Damn trolls

Do you really think the managers even want to do this? As a manager I'd much rather stay in the store.

I've never heard of this either but what is the point of this when you already have CLs and DMs? Is it to much to ask them to do their job?

Yes it is a waste of time, an money-but has been going on for years here.The Tour starts earlier every year, or so it seems.The reason behind them doing this? No clue.

wagdoodle is absolutely right.

This is something that a DM or VP came up with somewhere to improve employee engagement. Once one of them heard about it, everybody else copied it. From what I gather, it does help some employee's engagement, so who knows? It just reminds me that our company is becoming more and more like the movie Office Space every day.

Did you forget the cover on your TPS report?

My district needs to do this so they have a chance of wrecking and dying in a fiery blaze.
Honestly, only three of thirty something managers will be missed by anyone including their families.

Ostensibly, it's a contest to see whose store looks the best for the holiday shopping season, with the winning store receiving a pizza party or other such nonsense. In reality, it's used by DMs to make sure stores are ready for the season, nothing more, nothing less.
