Has anyone else noticed that we have posters in Dr's offices now? I have 1 assigned to me for next week, I turned down companies doing this before and now it's come to me.

Make sure to price scan ALL product in the SONY resets.
While some titles are carryovers, there are still some of them misringing.
Task 26 and 28 yielded a total of 27 title misrings at the register including two titles not in their system.
The DVD Mrs Miracle is on the return list was intended only for the copies priced at $9.99. The replacements of the same title and UPC came in correctly priced at $5.99. Return only the $9.99 priced ones.

KM SONY reset had about a half dozen SONY titles not ringing at the register including a not in system title.

READ the paperwork on the Toy-R-US job. PHOTOS REQUIRED.
UPDATE 12/20/2011: See Message Board on your Job Board. Photos are NOT mandatory as of yesterday.

Also, my TRU says the SKUs provided are not valid.

Thanks for the update, I haven't read them yet. I don't do pictures for what little I'm being paid per hour. I'm still at the same rate that I was hired in at almost 4 years ago. I believe we need to be paid more if we are needing to post photos, which I've never been able to load into the spareyes.

Same here, Marla, when I asked for a raise, my DM laughed. I quit the National side. I still work for the NAS side and GO Team. They pay better!

I received a call today about the McKesson program. I have gotten away from doing most resets but I was told there wouldn't be much to them. How does everyone else doing this feel about it.

I know a merchandiser out in western Nebraska who loves that program.
I'm not convinced the statement you were told holds water. At least not for me. Now IF the store is set up, then it is just merchandising several linar feet of shelves.
To be fair, I have not done that program. I've just told you my perception.

At least with McKesson, you probably won't need to be lifting 50 lbs or more consistently. I also don't do resets much, not the major ones lifting the heavier weights, so I understand. Leave those to the younger people and guys, both with more arm strength than I have. I see McKesson products in my doctors office, don't know how they get there, tho.

UPS My Choice says three 13 pound shipments from DISPLAY SYSTEM in or near Maspeth, NY are on the way. ETA to me is Friday midday.

UPDATE: They are displays for Toys-R-Us and Babys_R-Us. Not on the job board yet because it is for the first week in January.

Thanks for update, Jeff. I'm new to the TRU jobs, so I'm not sure what all I'll be doing. Hopefully it's not the week of 1/9, with all the Sony resets, that week will be full, plus started back to school that week with new classes.

This is the FIRST week in January.

You are sweating the second week in January which I have not given a thought to. Thanks ... now I will have to cancel my vacation again after your reminder. I was hoping to take some recovery time off and get out of town for a few days.

I'm having a slow week this week, thank goodness. thanks for telling me when. I haven't seen anything yet, but that's ok. I don't think I'll have any time off until after the Quickflick ambassador jobs are done, mid January. By the 2nd week of January, hopefully my other job will have been passed on to the new person.
