The Break Room is NOT an official service of Target Corp.
This is a site run by regular people who are off the clock.
We do not perform any HR related services, or affect any internal information regarding Target.
We had our 1st in mid April, 2nd in May and 3rd in late June. My state has some counties in which require masks and some that do not... Only about half of our guests are wearing them. My store is in a county that doesn't require but the county next to ours does.
They send us texts that say we've had a confirmed case and what day the TM last worked. One of the cases it was super obvious who it was, the others I had no clue who or if I was in close contact with them.
"would you like to save 10% by opening up a Target Card today"... every guest, everytime was the drill in the mid 2000s. I never hear guest advocates even ask anymore. Or answering the phone "Thank you for calling Target. Can I help you find something?" Ah, memories.
During my first stint at Target, we had a TL demote to TM, staying at the same store. He went back to college. Then graduated. Eventually, he became TL again at same store, then SR TL, then ETL then STL
I think it's pretty rare that a TL would have limited availability honored. Maybe if you needed to have a certain day off every week, or one night a week you couldnt close or mid for that might be honored without much hassle
I don't mind chatting here and there but some take it too far whilst on the clock. We have several TMs that just stand around talking to each other all day long without doing much else At least make an effort to do something if you're gonna talk to each other your entire shift. At my store it's...
I didn't take a leave and certainly don't blame anyone that did regardless of their reasoning. Hours have been very plentiful at my store and most people that want them have gotten them. We've hired several new people too. I would like the hazard pay to extend though since it's still hazardous.
