    Reflecting on leadership in the past..

    I believe I have read something similar on Reddit. I don't remember the post, but I think they mentioned that each department needs to meet a sales goal to earn a TL since there should already be a couple of style leads and one for beauty and tech already.

    In terms of leadership, it's specialty sales.

    Transferring into a Lead Position

    Are you currently a team lead and looking to transfer to a leadership position at another store? Maybe try talking to your store HR first, and if that doesn't work, maybe just apply separately? I've transferred several times, but I only have experience as a TM, not a lead. The HR department...

    Oh, my god. Soooooo many team leads!

    Reflecting on leadership in the past..

    I've never worked at a store that was above $50,000,000. They've also only been base or low volume. My lowest was $18M with only 2 ETLs and the SD with 8 TLs, and my first and current are identical in sales at $45M, 4-5 team leaders, and 12 team leads. I'm around the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro...

    Reflecting on leadership in the past..

    I've seen several posts like this around here as well as the subreddit for target. This intrigues me, how many ETL positions cease to exist, and what were they called? I'm aware there used to be an operations, logistics, and replenishment when we still had a nicely staffed BR team. I'm familiar...

    Black Friday 2020

    Yeah, we did NOT make our sales goals AT ALL during the weekend. While we were still busy (being a mall store), and still made a lot of money, we didn't meet any projected goals. To be honest, there were way too many people scheduled to go to work those days, and there was really not a lot to...

    Reflecting on leadership in the past..

    We have our SD, our ETL-GM and Food Sales, ETL-HR, ETL-Service and Engagement, and ETL Specialty Sales. 3 GM Team Leads, 1 for grocery, 2 or 3 for style, 3 for SE, 2 for HR, and SEVERAL for AP (high-risk mall). Also, we have our property management lead. I'm still new to the store, so I'm still...

    Interesting, I am assuming there were more management positions back then, especially ETL positions. **update. After browsing this sub some more, I've come to realize that several different ETL positions have been eliminated and renamed for modernization purposes. Also, I agree with you that...

    I can definitely see that. Also, what was a specialist? Was this title used in every department, and were they compensated differently than regular team members/consultants?

    Well, then this is more than likely why the store is always a damn mess. I've been at three stores so far, and this one is by far the worst. It may just be the time of day I come in, but I seldom see my ETLs, and the SD is always busy in her office. She's also the type that will NOT help out if...

    Reflecting on leadership in the past..

    For those that have been around for a while, what leadership titles have existed in the past, and do you feel target would benefit by bringing them back? I was speaking to a veteran TM the other day, and he was talking about working at Target years ago and how common it was to see dozens of...
