    Article "Mandatory Retirement: Is It Legal?" The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 EEOC: The State of Age Discrimination and Older Workers in the U.S. Companies do one very limited exception from age discrimination law, see "Compulsory Retirement of Bona Fide Executive and High-Level...

    how do i see survey answers a guest wrote about me?

    When possible -- i.e. when we're not facing a terrifyingly long line -- I try to mention the survey to the guest at the end of the sale, circle the survey log-in and write my name. On very rare occasions, the guest will mention me by name. I'm told occasionally by my TLs and even our SD that I...

    Does anyone know when stores will get the Team Voice Survey results?

    Your observations are accurate though this might be ASANTS. They don't discuss the findings with the store's TMs. That's why Internet discussion forums like this one exist.

    Will the board call for Cornell to retire or resign???

    Where exactly is the documentation of the so-called "mandatory retirement age of 65"? Three decades ago, Congress enacted legislation explicitly prohibiting employers from imposing mandatory retirement ages for most workers as it is blatantly discriminatory. There might be a mandatory...

    2022 Vacation/Time Off Changes

    Friends don't let friends "borrow" against their 401k. It's best to do without. There are many threads on this topic.

    Secret Bonus Again?

    A "Secret Bonus" should be awarded to all grade 35 TMs who have worked at Target for at least 6 months, for TM retention purposes. It won't happen, of course. Working on my resume.

    Secret Bonus Again?

    We're all getting cheated by the rampant inflation. The last so-called merit raise was a tiny fraction of the inflation rate, and it's gotten worse. No wonder so many of my store's ETLs, TLs and TMs are quitting. If you want to stay ahead of inflation, you gotta get a better paying job...

    Are your stores meeting sales goals so far this year?

    Our YOY (year-over-year) YTD sales are now down about 2%. YOY In-store sales volume is up but less than YOY price inflation on Target's merchandise. YOY fulfillment is down much more, no surprise as this is happening throughout the retail industry.

    how do i see survey answers a guest wrote about me?

    No, at least in my store, we are not allowed to see the actual survey comments, and for that matter we aren't really informed how many surveys have come in under our TM number. This secrecy doesn't provide much motivation for a TM like me to keep asking for surveys.

    Is this happening at your store too?

    Absolute not the situation at our store. I can't recall our store ever promoting TLs into ETL slots, but as for ETLs about half have migrated from other stores and about have were hired off the street (or off the college recruitment system).

    Anyone here successfully ask for a pay raise?

    Target's official party line is "competitive pay" and "merit based" at a once-per-year performance review. But given the tightening labor market, and the terrifying loss of buying power due to inflation (including goods at Target), has anyone here succeeded in asking for an actual pay raise in...

    Are your stores meeting sales goals so far this year?

    Our YTD sales are down a bit over 1%. When you consider that most product prices have increased over 2021, that's not good news. In 2020, we did extremely well in sales because Washington State forced most "Non-Essential" competitors to close their doors for 4 months due to COVID. In late...

    hidden pros of target?

    Over your future career, you'll find most employers provide Paid Holidays, typically days the business is closed to observe a legal or recognized holiday. People who work for Target Corporate or in ETL/SD positions get seven Paid Holidays (Juneteenth was just added). Some hourly Target TMs...

    hidden pros of target?

    Note: "Holiday pay" has two different meanings. "Paid Holiday": for many hourly TMs in stores and DCs means getting two Paid Holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Some hourly TMs don't qualify (in terms of average hours worked) for any paid holidays. Most Corporate and executive staff...
