    To That One Guest - II

    I am old & have worked retail & restaurants since 1977. The things I have cleaned up in women's restrooms are beyond disgusting. Kids don't get blood on the walls, floors & seats. Kids don't spread toilet paper on the seat & pee all over the seat & then leave the soggy toilet paper on the seat...

    To That One Guest - II

    Nope, women truly are that disgusting. I worked in nice restaurants, fast food joints & department stores from 1977 until 2020. The women's restrooms are ALWAYS dirtier than the Men's restrooms. Women are filthy.

    Defecting before inventory

    I was Price Change TL for nearly six years until the position was eliminated. I did financials for 9 of the nearly 14 years I was at my former store. As Is & Online merchandise never sold. It took up valuable endcap space, got dirty & doesn't scan on the Regis system. Inventory 2019 was a...

    The Target Dress Challange?

    It is part of the whole "cottage core" nonsense. Bored women playing "Little House on the Prairie". My friends & family who actually farm think it is hilarious.

    COVID-19 Demand that Target Protect and Compensate the Team As Covid Surges On!

    And wrongful termination can be awfully hard to prove, especially in an at-will employment state.

    Gifts ?

    Last year, I was SETL. I gave each front of store team member a card, thanking them for their hard work. I kept snacks in my bottom desk drawer all through the year.

    Being paid unused vacation pay after termination

    It depends on the state. If you get terminated in Texas, you lose vacation/sick/personal time.

    Answered Are managers allowed to watch the security cams?

    The SD & ETL'S at my former store spent hours in the AP office watching the cameras.

    Change shortage

    My family lives in the Texas panhandle. Banks up there are giving a 10% bonus to people who bring in their change in. My mom saves her change & usually cashes it in twice a year. It is her "fun" money as she lives on a fixed income. She took $149 to the bank; came home with $165. They rounded...

    door policy

    My former store has an HR ETL & one HR team member. The HR TM works 8 - 3 MWF & IF she is scheduled on T & TH; it is in OPU. The HR ETL desperately wants to be a stay at home mom so most of her day is spent on her office. She is constantly on her phone; watching her son at daycare. The HR TM is...

    I finally got my unemployment claim approved & received payments this week. It doesn't look like I will get the additional money due to Covid-19 but I am good with what I am getting. Target contested my claim but I spoke to someone a few weeks ago to give my side of the story. TWC found in my...

    Rotating DBO'S ...The end of TL = True modernization

    I was a TL for nearly 14 years. I was put on CA in the spring & fired in June for performance issues. Among those issues were "being too hands on & not delegating all tasks". I had no input on schedules. I did, however, do all of the training, most of the resets with my team & worked my ass off...

    I got fired & my unemployment has been approved. However, the TWC is double checking my payment request so it could be a few weeks before I get the payments. Luckily, I have savings. Someone fired for stealing isn't going to be able to collect unemployment, at least not in Texas. My best friend...

    COVID-19 Anyone else have confirmed Covid-19 cases in the warehouse?

    Four confirmed cases at my former store. Three in the last 10 days. Oops, wrong thread. I worked in a regular store.

    I've been trying to get hired as an ETL/TL, am I missing something?

    The thing is that all stores are not the same & all districts are not the same. I am in Texas. My former district does a lot of external hires for TL & ETL positions. Other districts may do internal promotions. It varies widely.

    It depends on your state. In Texas, quitting usually equals no unemployment. Go to your state's official website to see what information is there.

    Exit Questionaire

    No. I was termed. I am guessing the exit survey is only if someone quits? I don't know much about HR. My former store has a revolving door on the HR office & hasn't ever had a really good HR ETL.

    Answered Still on the bench.

    ASANTS. In the 14 years I was at my store, I saw a grand total of 5 TM'S promoted to TL & 1 TL promoted to ETL. The TL who promoted was promptly thrown under the modernization bus & quit after 5 months. Outside, young hires are the current rage in this district & several long time TL'S have been...
