    Adding a fill group for cafs

    In the two districts I have worked in all stores have back stocked alcohol in location. It is not treated the same as other vendors as there are no returns to the vendor nor do we typically get credits. Once the wine crosses into our building and we recv it we own it. The ctl or pa does the...

    Adding a fill group for cafs

    My GOL told me wine, beer and spirits won't ever come out on cafs. My guess is because it isn't in every store and is also a vendor item. We were told to do POG fills to fill it as we had been doing EXFs and it will fill based off sell through. The first few times we did it the Fills were huge...

    target wine buyout

    The ctl should be ordering wine with the wine rep each time the rep is in. It should be based off what is on the floor and in the backroom. If the ctl or pas or backups are not doing the order the vendor is probably ordering cases to fill the shelf even if there is plenty based of sales. Make...

    Tips for writing annual reviews

    For all who are gstls it is actually best practice for the ETL-GE to help with the reviews. Ours is helping but our veteran gstl was shocked as no GE has ever helped before

    Stepping Down

    I am a senior ctl too and was told I could not br a senior either but in our district they want the strongest tl as a ctl. I am not losing any money. I actually know of a senior from another area of the store who was moved to ctl before the remodel as they are the strongest in the building. I...

    Target releases to the AP that they will open at midnight on Black Friday.

    Retail is about making money and I am sure there will be plenty of guests shopping at midnight. Being in retail there are sacrifices such as this. As for hOw it was announced they would have gotten flack any way it was done. I only wish it had been announced a bit earlier so we could have been...

    Gift Card Question

    No the Target gift carc cannot be used to purchase a Visa one. I believe it states that on the back of the Target gift card.

    Team alignment

    I would get with your fellow tl asap as this is not what tm alignment is all about. You guys need to work to have a united team bc they work for both of you. I have seen something similar to this happen in my pre Target work life and it gets worse if you don't nip it in the behind quickly

    Team alignment

    We started the team alignment but didn't call it that over two years ago at my store. It is used a lot for training purposes. Just because someone is on your team doesn't mean you have to work with them often. I have some on my team who I never close with and see maybe once every other week...

    Defected vs Non Defected

    You are correct on the cosmetics and pre-paid phones. Trying to void LP through RF Aps can get a bit sticky. As LODs at our store we have to audit all of the yellow CRCs and we can void them to repackage items other than computers and cameras if they are not opened, look ok, etc but it is an...

    Wellness Captain! What?!

    As for it being too many it is really what you think you can handle. If you are hi potential on the ppa grid or they think you are promotable you will have a decent amount. But don't try to do too much.

    Wellness Captain! What?!

    Most of what you need will be sent in store mail. Check out wbench too. This month I believe is focus on financial wellness. We received posters with the perks and discounts and green dots for tms to put on which they use. Typically the wellness events are on the FFF calender which we create for...
