    No More GSAs...? What are they now?

    Luckily, our closing lead can see if they are far too slow up there and they have an extra set of hands (very rare, but it does happen) and have had a cashier come help before close to push my go backs/reshop. I'm always grateful for the help when they do this. But yeah, otherwise, that eating...

    Am I the only one that actually LIKES modernization?

    I'm okay with it most of the time. There are days it sucks and the workloads seem unrealistic. There's also the question of allocated hours that came with modernization that have really hindered process, moral, etc. I also hate that turn around is at it's highest it seems. But the...

    No More GSAs...? What are they now?

    At our store, all front end advocates do every role. This includes holding keys, getting change, closing registers, making the next day's break schedule, running guest service, etc. I, a former GSA, was the only one in the front end to have the offer to move to another role and continue to...

    Zoning Speed...

    At our store and coming down the chain of command, they expect us DBO's to spend an hour zoning at start of shift. That's roughly 19-21 aisles worth for most DBO's, for myself owning bed/bath/rugs/decor pillows that's roughly 42 aisles-- so I am expected 2 hours of my day, at start of shift, to...

    What in your opinion is the worst thing Target has ever sold?

    My friend and I bought those for the front end team to try. She was eh about them, I didn't mind them... The person I thought would be totally disgusted by them ate the rest of my bag LOL If they have them this year I think I'll buy one.

    I only get cashier shifts and I want to get SCO shifts again or move to guest service, but my leaders don’t take me seriously. What to do?

    Even if the POS comes back saying "Application need further review..." it still counts towards the metric as 'getting a REDcard'. Also, this message doesn't mean the guest won't be approved, just that they'll be notified in the mail within 7-10 business days. I've actually had guests come back...

    ONE FOR ONE

    Our leadership was fantastic at getting us set for success with these. Most of us got help, mostly by the SD, ETLs and our GM leads working to purge our backroom aisles, one by one, and pulling the hundreds of 1 for 1's for us. Because I have 3 fillgroups (technically 4 but rarely have any items...

    Noises that give you PTSD

    The fire alarm panels. That 'budeep budeep' sound. When Irma knocked out the power in our area for days (including our store even after we got a big enough backup generator days later) that alarm was still budeeping for close to 2 weeks. Now everytime one of them does this (every few weeks) it...

    OPU Comparison

    I've heard the horror stories about the wally world next door (literally, it's next door to us) concerning pickup, especially their version of drive-up. Our store is a P-fresh, so no cold grocery goes into OPU, but if you order groceries for their drive-up service, you have to wait 48 hours to...

    Who recently quit at your store?

    One young girl with tons of potential finished her short run with Target, started with us during last seasonal Q4. Modernization for front end ruined it for her. She was excellent. Our cart attendant of 15+ years finally put his 2 weeks in. For him, it wasn't modernization though. He's nearly...

    Hurricane time here in fl

    I dunno if there's a 'list', per se, but I know corporate is making the decisions on which stores they are going to close. I'd almost bet that (with the most current forecast) that most of south Florida stores up through central Florida will be closed, especially from the middle of the state...

    Hurricane time here in fl

    Mine is set to, but no word yet on the exact day. Since the storm is slowing down, chances are it won't be until Tuesday or even Wednesday. I was scheduled Monday but they decided to move the truck up a day and be here on Sunday. I was asked to come in (and at any time I wanted) but I opted for...

    MEGATHREAD 2018-2019 Store Modernization Megathread

    Honestly, that's what I do most of the time especially for two of my heavier parts of my large area. It REALLY speeds up my process. It's a no-no to have multiple vehicles on the floor, but my closing lead doesn't mind. Hell, even a couple of my leads have hinted to 'breaking small rules' if...

    Ap q

    In my experience, AP takes internals very seriously, even if it's just a sketchy-type thing that a TM happened to witness about another TM. If you feel that the transaction felt strange as well as the behavior, go ahead and tell the AP every detail you can recall. It could be something, it could...

    Guest today told me he was a "secret shopper". Is this legit?

    This happened at my store a while back just before we got head-on in modernization. Maaaaaan, the leads went crazy on the team for weeks afterwards. On the topic of secret shoppers... I heard Target doesn't do that anymore- albeit this was a couple years ago. Any chance that Target is changing...

    Cashier to Beauty

    If you thought you were guest obsessed before, you ain't seen nothing yet! I know you sell, sell, sell and UPSELL, you'll rely on your service skills to make connections with your guests and often times you'll get guests ask for YOU for advice when they come into the store about their beauty...

    Fall TL Modernization thank you bonus

    While my first reaction is to sigh and think to myself, 'well, that must be nice!' I stop myself. We have some great TL's at our store and have been working their asses off leading their teams, switching presumptions and routines over to modernization, and really dealing with a lot- from front...

    Cartwheel/Target.com

    If you're doing it purposefully and especially if the price points differ greatly, then yes, you could get termed. I would suggest you never intentionally find out otherwise of a price wrongly labeled and take advantage of it. Otherwise, I'm not taking advantage of prior knowledge that I had...

    Carton standard

    Man, I would KILL to have someone jump into repacks with me. At first I was reading the OP's post and thought it suspiciously sounded like my store, but we never had a repacks person. Ever. We are beginning to get behind at our store. We had a little bit of bumps here and there, depending on...
