Make a policy that cell phones can only be out on your breaks.

Don't be that manager that enforces a punishment but doesn't do it. Let them know that if they repeat their offenses that they will be terminated. Keep your word--they applied to work, not to stand around and use their phones. They could do that broke and at home. :)

phones are not allowed where I work; any emergencies (rare) - we ask they call the front office.

As an older person it is odd to me that you even have to ask. Tell them to turn their phone off and put it away during working hours. They are paid to work there. When they are looking at their phones they are not working. If they continue to do it then it is grounds for dismissal.

FIRE THEM

Simple - don't allow them to have their phones when they're on the sales floor. They need to leave them in their lockers and can use them on breaks. No reason anyone has to be tied to a phone every hour of the day. If there's truly a family emergency, someone can call the store's landline.

Ban the use of personal cell phones in the business - hold a meeting and put EVERYONE on notice. Anyone seen violating the new policy will be promptly and immediately fired. Informing them that their theft of company time will no longer be tolerated and that you will also be reporting them to the police if they are seen using working hours as personal time.

Have a written policy and talk to the workers. Some companies might not allow employees to carry a phone during work hours requiring them to be keep in lockers or in an office except at lunch or breaks.

Depends on your management style.

If you want to be a hard-***, make a written policy, require all employees to sign it, and then fire the first person you see violating the policy, which will take less than a day. If you have to fire two, so be it.

You might want to beef up the staff by an employee or two before implementing the policy because I can guarantee you that you'll have to fire at least one if not two before they believe you.

Do you have video surveillance in the work areas? If yes, that will help enforce the policy when you're not there babysitting.

You're supposed to be their manager. Warn them, write them up, and if they don't improve, fire them.
