    Electronics TM

    I was a Cyber Analyst before the role I have right now (Scrum Master for a Cyber aligned team). Do not wait. Your career path requires a CISSP and soon, a CAP certification - these require experience to obtain. ISC2 will vet your background to ensure you have the requisite years of...

    Discrimination

    Does everyone view discrimination as black and white? Discrimination in all it's many forms, never comes in "it is" or "it isn't" Intent plays a huge part. If I ask a guy to get carts because I don't want to send the 80lb female cashier, is that sexist? Am I doing it because I don't believe...

    With a CompTIA stack, especially a sec+ why are you applying to Target? You can easily get a job with better hours that pays double working desktop support or as a junior security analyst.

    Resigning after Two Weeks of Work at Target

    TLs are not contractually guaranteed 40 hours, they're guaranteed "full time" which target defines as an average of 32 hours per week over a rolling period (used to be 6 months, not sure if that has changed) Very very few TMs are going to get full time work because then Target is legally...

    Please - Stop telling people to "take on more responsibility".

    People who take on additional responsibility without additional pay are failing to recognize their own market value. Being responsible for something has zero to do with being a leader, and this mentality is there because the "leaders" at Target (and most ground-level supervisors in retail in...

    Resigning after Two Weeks of Work at Target

    Given your diverse background, you can probably find something full-time in a few different places. If there are any Military bases near you - they generally are looking for lifeguards. Depending on the type of construction work you did, your state or local government may have openings.

    Resigning after Two Weeks of Work at Target

    I did not read your thread beyond your initial post. This is what I gleaned. "I want consistent hours to ensure consistent earning ability." Retail is not for you. It has never been nor will it ever be consistent. This is not a slight at you, it's the reality. There are no full time...

    Please - Stop telling people to "take on more responsibility".

    Search my post history for accountability. There is a difference between "I am trying but I can't seem to get this down" and "I really don't give a shit about this job and have no drive to do better". A function of good leadership as it applies to being in a position of power on a team is to...

    Out to get me

    How do you determine what is or isn't invested? How do you qualify business need? These are a lot of fancy words but they mean nothing. The business needs staff. What staff fills what slot is irrelevant as long as they have the capability to do said job. The reality is it's a pain in...

    Please - Stop telling people to "take on more responsibility".

    I no longer work for Target, or retail in general. But please, stop telling people to take on more responsibility. This is the most ass-backward advice and I see it given daily here. This is not the path to get promoted. This is called scope creep, and it works directly against you if you're...

    Refuse for backing up cashier

    This has actually been proven to be a huge missed consideration in a multi-line style setup. Customers generally associate wait times with the number of open registers, not how quickly the line moves.

    He texts employees

    You are also probably also told not to discuss your pay. Which is also bullshit because you can write it on a sandwich board and wear it around the store if you want. Unless something has drastically changed the only written requirement for non-exempt employees is this line which was written...

    He texts employees

    Assuming he's an hourly lead, unless something has changed since I left, there's nothing preventing an hourly team lead from hanging out with an hourly team member unless he enters into a relationship with them. Exempt vs Non-Exempt status is the determining factor. That being said if it's his...

    Our new HR TL seems really inexperienced.

    My point was moreso that age has very little to do with it - especially in HR. Soft-skills, which is what really determines if someone is a good or shitty ground-level HR person, is really driven by two things: Personality, and perspective. You can have a 20 year old with incredible...

    Our new HR TL seems really inexperienced.

    Our new flow TL is over 50. Why would Target let them run Flow in a store with over 6 trucks a week. They might break their frail body. I am in my 20s and never worked anywhere that did that. Do you see how ridiculous this sounds?

    Generic barcode

    If you still have excel on workbench pcs, there should be a font that changes to barcode. Just type your numbers, change the font and print it out. FYI - there's metadata attached as well, so the barcode you see isn't necessarily all that's included on the barcode, I used to do 49+DPCI and...

    Scheduled outside of availability

    Your availability is a "guideline" They aren't required to follow it. That being said, there's probably no scenario where this pans out well for you. If you've had conversations and they continue to disregard it, then calling the hotline is just going to irritate them to the point they just...
