I need proof that 2 people cant do it all!!!
Ok I work at walmart on floor crew. we have 5 people total, and 1 person has a fractured ankle so they stick him on the door for right now. so technically we only have 4 people right now. our scheduling is set up so that theres 3 people working 4 days out of the week and 4 people working 3 days out of the week. well due to being a person down there is only 2 people on the floor during the 4 day stretch. (for those not familiar with walmart, not trying to make anyone sound dumb just in case) we sweep, scrub, buff and wax the entire store, and do other miscellaneous items: bathrooms, 99 supply pallet, breakroom, etc etc.... This is our daily(nightly) routine when we have 3 or more people. At the very beginning 2 people go sweep, 1 person the buffer 1 person one of the scrubbers. the other scrubber person starts right off scrubbing. in short terms, the sweeping should/usually takes around an hour then the buffer vacuums the carpets around the store and the scrubber starts scrubbing. that is the way until late 4ish where each scrubber sweeps and scrubs their half of the registers. after that is done around 5, whoever is doing the final sweep, sweeps the grocery side, recievings, and then final sweep around the entire store. the scrubber scrubs grocery until its time to leave at late 7ish-8. bathrooms are usually done after lunch which is around 3.
when there is only two people on the floor they both have to sweep and both have to scrub, there are some nights where they are damn lucky if we are able to get the bathrooms done as well let alone tack on extras.
we are having problems with management, saying that we should be able to get all of that done AND wax a portion of the store as well. this is told to us when there is only 2 people on the floor.
side note. i dont believe in overworking, the work environment should be relaxing and stress free. we are told to chill out and have fun at work but yet we are supposed to do it under slave hood? im fine with doing an extra thing or two once in a while but when im busting my ass every night just to meet the demands to cover the basics its outrageous in my beliefs to ask us of such a thing and it would be impossible to do in an 8 hour shift.
any advice would be GREATLY appreciated and if your on a walmart floor crew please reply back with something. negative or positive because there is something that they are going to try to get approved as well. an entire new system where each person has their own section of the store and they do it all to their own section. that i dont see a problem with, what i do see is when its two people on the floor that night its going to have to go back to the old way of 2 people sweeping and scrubbing.
Thank You, in advance for any input!!!
