3. Describe what you do during a typical day. During a typical day Mr. Menkes role changes all the time. Each day is looked at differently based on what staff he has in the store with him at that time and what the priorities of the day are. Each day starts with opening the store and putting together the deposit from the day before sales. What comes next depends on the day, it could be P.U.S.H. . P.U.S.H is sending or “pushing” back stock from the store room out to the sales floor. One of each item in the back room must be scanned into the scanner gun. It then tells him how many pieces are in stock and how many should be on the shelf. From that he can figure out if any of the back stock will fit on the sales floor or if he should move to

the next item. If any is needed on the sales floor he brings it out and fills the spot. Another day is order day. Mr. Menke must walk the entire store scanning any item and or shelf tag that has a quantity of 0 or 1. Again the scanner will tell him how many should be in the store. If the amount on the shelf is all there is in the store then he orders that item accordingly. If there is more in the backroom, he skips it. Another day is pre B.O.H or pre balance on hand. Mr. Menke must look at upcoming sales flyers and past sales for those items in the flyer. Based on past sales volume and swoon to be current sale price he determines how much of a product will be needed to last throughout the entire sale week and pre orders the correct quantities based on those figures. Another day is delivery day. Yet another day is for sale signage. All the yellow sale tags that are up in the store come down on Saturday and new ones go up in accordance to the new sale starting on Sunday morning. He also must set up the employees schedule or verify the schedule if it is done by another manager. He stays active in his communication with CVS headquarters to make sure he and his staff, all implement any and every change headquarters requires to be done. These changes include things like price changes, item location changes, complete P.O.G. (planogram or section such as, trial size, shampoo, salted snacks etc). He is also in charge of loss prevention. There s a lot of paperwork and video tape verifying that goes along with that. He also must verify deposits with the bank to make sure that the amount he shows as being deposited is actually what made it to the bank. He is in charge of accounts payable and accounts receivable. He must check in vendors, write off damage merchandise credits and also write off the cost of stolen products. By now you can clearly see why time management is one of the most important things to have in this career.
