    Archived Reapplying Struggle

    I think its best to move on. Yes I agree. But when the new Flow TL who knew me from Plano heard I was coming back she was all aboard. Sounds like too much of a sure thing. I left on good terms. I wasnt marked non-rehireable that I know of. I would feel better if the HR was just honest and said I...

    Archived Benefits in 2014

    I recently started back at Target after a 6month break and am currently having to wait again for my benefits to take in effect, which I was aware. But my question is do they roll the benefits "package" out twice a year or is it effective as soon as you reach 6months? I know its a confusing...

    Archived Benefits

    Silly question but couldnt hurt to ask. I left Target October 2012 and looking to reapply. Even though its been 5 months, will I have to wait another 6-1year to receive my benefits again? I didnt know if there was a time window per say. anyways figured I'd ask.

    Archived Hire After Holidays?

    So after moving this past October, my transfer wasnt able to go through at the time. (since the store currently didnt have a designated HR and transfer app fell through the cracks) Anyways I went ahead and reapplied after the holidays, but this Target store goes about things quite differently...

    Archived Just when i thought my hours were getting better :(

    I dont bother looking at my schedule hours since 90% of the time they are set, but days when I'll be on Flow it'll read 4am-9am you sure as hell know you arent getting off at 9am. So If my schedule for the week says 25hrs. I usually clock out with around 32-35.

    Archived Cosmetics & Casepacks Questions

    I know each store is each own, but has anyone else experienced a long day stocking Cosmetics? We were 30hrs heavy today in HBA and fellow "breakout-er" and myself had to save Cosmetics till after 8am to make sure we had the boxes done by then. We had 17 carts in HBA, with 6 full carts in...

    Archived little flow team rant

    Our Store doesnt follow that apparently. We have Waves in: C&D, Market, HBA, and Softlines. With 2 guys soloing Chem, 1 Pets. But on topic. I'm trained in other departments so I know the demand for HBA, Walkies, are high. Yet giving up one in HBA really hinders us. Specially on 30hr HBA days...

    Archived New Morning Shift Schedule

    If this rolled out at my store half the team would quit on spot. Not that they are bad people. But we've gone through 3 TL since they fired our "favorite" one for not making RWT (which can be debated when your team is short players) Anyways half would probably walk out. We have so many...
