    Answered quest. HR ETLs about Hiring

    I accidentally canceled a job offer instead of accepting it when I was (about to be) hired after an interview. I came again (as I was asked to) to HR and the job offer was supposed to be sent to me again. However It's been about 12 hours since then and I havent gotten an email nor a pending task...

    Answered Does not having an interview with BOTH a TL and ETL in the same day mean I did not get the job?

    (I apologize in advance for my anxiety, I just really really need something to pan out...) Ok, so on r/Target I heard they do both interviews in the same day now. I had a interview with a TL at the store that I really wanna get hired at (closest to my house) but they only did one interview...

    Is it even worth it....

    I applied last Sunday and it’s been really confusing. My phone interview was last Monday at 11am and I never got the call. Workday updated to “No Longer Considered” later that day. I called HR around 4-5pm and they scheduled a makeup phone interview for Tuesday(I SWEAR). Then Tuesday came and I...

    Have any team members reduced availability before moving onto another full-time job?

    I was just thinking about something another team member told me before she quit recently. We were talking about our future job prospects and she suggested that if I am planning to quit Target for another job to reduce my availability to weekends only if I was nervous about the new job not...

    Hello. I worked as a seasonal last holiday season, but due to a shuffle of managers, we ended up getting one that HATED me.

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

    At first I tried to get into an ETL position because I have a BA (it's in a social science, please don't mock me) and need to survive/pay off loans. That didn't work, so now I am thinking a TL position would be fine with me. Any TL position. I have bills. Yes, I have tried other temp and office...

    Why I Didn't Enjoy Target

    There are some cool, fun people who work there. But you don't really get to enjoy them. The minute you start conversing with a co-worker, the Gestapo steps in. They would watch over the monitors, and if someone started joking around, or seemed to be having fun, a team leader would step in and...

    Possible Conflict of Interest?

    Today I was walking my store with my HR ETL, and fitness came up in conversation, so I mentioned that I was a Personal Trainer. My ETL seemed to be taken aback and cringed when I said it. He/she then asked me if I currently had clients and if I currently have income through it. When I said yes...

    Answered Retail Sales Lead

    I got an offer from indeed to apply for a Tech lead job. I saw some reviews on glass door, but from people who currently work at Target, how is that job? Also, how does it fit in the hierarchy? Is it a normal floor position, supervisor role, etc?
