Rx will not let anyone in the restroom

We had an MGT that had no problem pulling techs from the pharmacy if it was slow in RX (With the RPH's permission of course) He would put them on the floor or on the register, usually the later if we were short so we could get things taken care of on the floor.  (Oct 11, 2012 | post #42)

how come my PM's dont show up on my pay check??

Service clerks do not have access to the KPI tab on storenet. Almost all other positions do for their respective areas (Cos, Photo, Management, RX). As for why its not paying you PMS, I had the same problem at my store some years ago when I was first coded as a photo tech. Your badge number in Rate & Status must match your badge number on the POS. Even on the new system there is a box to put in the 3 digit number just for that purpose. If you are in COS make sure that the "Cosmetics PM" check box is checked or you won't get cos pms.  (Aug 16, 2012 | post #13)

Logging into Kronos from home?

That's something I could see being setup. Walmart for example uses Kronos and their employees have access from home to look at their schedules.  (Aug 8, 2012 | post #4)

Balance rewards ppl

That actually doesn't sound like a half bad idea. I love the photo registers and the ones in pharmacy because they have the full keyboard attached. I give it a few weeks before there is something on compass that says DTR is going to be going around installing keyboards, since using the touch screen for tasks like that is too slow.  (Aug 4, 2012 | post #7)

Drug test collector in the bathroom?!

They came through our store once, was told go punch in and go to the breakroom for a drug test. What really made it hard was I had gone just before going to work and my bladder was empty.  (Aug 2, 2012 | post #23)

NextGen 1.5

Hopefully that means new telxons are in our future. We have had to have over a dozen replacements in the last 2 months, no joke!  (Jun 25, 2012 | post #3)

Does anybody know what NextGen 1.5 is? We are scheduled to have some people come to our store in a couple days for this and there is now real explanation for what its all about. We already have had our nextgen pos setup done back in March.  (Jun 24, 2012 | post #1)

Project 400?

Our store will probably stay wet for a while. Our store is the only one in our city of 70,000 with an onsite film photo lab. We are doing upwards of 20+ rolls a day and doing over $600 in sales regularly. Our Fuji tech said that we should be getting a dry lab sometime but not for a while though.  (Jun 2, 2012 | post #12)

Anybody know what totalview is?

I was on the Employees @ Home site and noticed two new links for something called Totalview. Clicked it and it goes 404. Looked it up online and it looks like labor scheduling software. Any idea what its about?  (May 8, 2012 | post #1)

"Do you work here?"

My two all time favorites is "What time do you close?" There is a huge neon sign on the building outside that Helen Keller could see that says 24HR. Then on holidays on the phone every phone call adds up to "Oh are you open?" No, Walgreens pays me holiday pay just to sit here and answer the phone to say we're closed lol  (May 8, 2012 | post #18)
