To follow up, yes I threw the bags in the back of the truck and told the loader that it wouldn't work and he had to load them where they were supposed to go. The carpet deal, I had the preload sup move it. I also reported the bag deal to both fulltime sups (one thought it was hilarious) and to the center manager (who ripped the preload sup big time)
One big problem with our preload is that the sup has never loaded nor driven. He was hired as an AM clerk last fall, promoted to clerk supervisor after about two weeks, then when the preload went in a couple of months ago he became preload sup. To illustrate his knowlege: Just before peak when we had the driver preload, I sent a package down to the clerks which did not have a barcode or shipper #. Awhile later this guy comes up to me with the package and asked where I had packages for that stop loaded. I showed him and he took one and started to leave with it. I told him there were a couple more for that stop if they wanted them will called or whatever. No, he says I just need the shipper # I said well that one isn't from the same shipper. He says "Oh do they need to be from the same shipper?"
Another problem: We have out of 15 loaders probably 2 who came from another center with experience. All the others have never loaded before and the training has been pretty much non-existent, just look at the pal put it in sequence on the right shelf. So........everything regardless of size or weight is loaded on the appropriate shelf, then they have no clue what to do when they run out of room (neither does the preload sup) My loader drops them down to the next shelf first, then the floor if there's room (usually the floor is empty and the shelves are packed) Yesterday I got a 21 piece load of sewing machines and they were lined up all the way down the side on the floor and on the top shelf (pal 1000) Walmart is usually on both sides in the back, but they didn't have much so the back was pretty empty. They just don't know how to think and make a decision to make adjustments; just load according to pal.
