    Never knew that folks would even try that-returning where it wasn't purchased, but lots did, and got nasty if it took too long.
    1. Yes and no...not so much. We have goals set with referrence to LY (Last Year) and an expectation that we will also best those LY KPI's (stats). We are expected to convert a return into an exchange as often as possible, also, and the buck stops with the Manager who is Sales Manager for that shift.

    2. The merchandise was purchased at a Disney Store, just not ours.
    We would NEVER return merch. from another retailer to our Store. If it's not recognized by our system, we're not takin' it. We're kinda' a specialty place. We are also required to take online returns that also count against the retail location they are returned to.

    Only the Store Manager and the Assistant Store Manager get them. The Lead Managers (of which I am one of 2) do not. The Leads used to, but that ended several months before I moved into the position.

    Boy if you were a lead and had that taken away...that would be a reason to leave. It is odd how different different branches of Disney get bonuses and others do not. Even some of lowest level CM roles at WDW qualify for some types of bonus incentives.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Good plan. I don't enjoy some yard work, some I do. It is the expectation that I will that bugs me. That is strictly voluntary as that is not my realm.

    Got this one thru a trade deal, and planned on selling it, but that didn't happen so we kept it. So, it is with DH to see what it is capable of. But if that will keep them off my laptop, okay then. I don't like the pad size, I like my 20 inch monitor and full keyboard.

    Stacking is what we called that, as in stacking the deck against the employee. Not a system i like much, but it DOES encourage the CMs to attempt to sell, instead of holding the floor in place.

    I never knew anyone at WDW or other D entities got bonuses other then managment. Good incentive, is there any way that a guest can leave a comment that would help with that?

    re: The RT Thread Part V

    Quick hello to all, I have been working on DD college tuition issue & filling & searching for a job making at least 80% of what I was making. Not easy. Told DH may need to go to school for something, not just the excel brush up we shall see. Hope you all are having a good weekend.

    Just filed my Netflix appeal, DH said we should we had so many issues yrs ago & then just recently.

    Job Finder looking now before a birthday dinner with family for cousin from out of town.

    Very sunny day so my mood has been much better today. Thanks for all the support.

    Yes, I remember those days! We didn't have alot of things they have now! I like the surprise of the out come I didn't know what I was having either.

    Same here! DH does pitch in on floors & his laundry sometimes but mostly me!

    I need to prepare these boys to be helpers instead of just mess makers. Got to work on that.
    DD used to help before she went to college. Then when she moved back after the dorm 3 months later its like pulling teeth to get her to pitch in! But I see this changing once I go back to work as I may be working more then less.

    re: The RT Thread Part V

    I had a pretty busy weekend. On Friday after school I went to Target then to my best friends house to celebrate her moms birthday with her family. Yesterday I cleaned my room and went to dinner to a local inn with my mom and dad. Today I studied for my a couple of exams, they start friday =/, finished my homework, got about halfway done with my serial killer project and finished cleaning my room. Now I am off to help mom make dinner and finish my project.
