    Speed over Safety?

    What’s up with the lack of safety? Seems like they’re more concerned with speed. 3 weeks new to target. Back stocking, large box on tallest shelf at entry of aisle was caught between the shelves. Called the ETL and all he did was crank it open further, let it fall and kicked out of the...

    Modernization's effect on those with disabilities and/or work restrictions

    I'm curious as to whether or not modernization has affected those with disabilities and/or work restrictions. What kind of accommodations are possible with the requirement that tm's are responsible for their work end to end?

    TL pay bump?

    Does anyone have any info on if TL minimum Pay will increase since TM wage is increasing? I’m currently a closing lead and don’t make much more than $15 A hour. The position wouldn’t be worth it to me if I’m barely making more than my team members.

    To all new and of course "vets" so to speak...

    I was sitting here thinking how ASANTS and such. Thinking about how this site is supposed to be a place where we connect but everyone feels alienated. How each year is new for us as much as it is for newbies but this time of year is such a hassle. This time around though I have to teach people...

    4th quarter nation wide modernization

    Well here we are folks. Those of you that were a pilot store last year know what a scrambled mess this idea is. Eliminating overnight and back room/POG teams has proven to fail ESPECIALLY during 4th quarter where the freight and pulls are unforgiving. Let’s share how everyone’s experiences are...

    returned to old store (to visit)

    my god it's depressing. i thought i was paranoid. i wasn't. all the old timers are just hanging on, the workload has doubled since i left, elimination of pog led to backup, and so far everyone is making exit plans. everyone new is brand new with no retail experience. i loved my store due to the...

    No More ETL HR?

    Will the ETL HR and/or HR Expert role will be eliminated with Store Modernization in low volume stores? The last related post I found was from 2017 which stated there was an announcement from HQ that some stores may lose an ETL HR in favor of a Sr HR TL. Any insight would be greatly appreciated! TIA

    Guest advocates

    Since getting rid of GSA's, has anyone else's store had a problem with now everyone thinking they are in charge? In the last few months we have had a lot of young adults that were hired. Almost all of them think they either are in charge, don't have to do anything, or only think they should be...

    Bullseye On My Back

    My weird psychology is such that I hate inefficiency and I have a bizarrely strong work ethic. I am aware that I am the hardest and most efficient worker in house, and this matters not, my friends. It's clear that the only branch of this awful corporation that actually works is P.R. . I have...

    Unable to complete all my tasks and stressing out about it.

    So I’m what they call go to girl and everywhere girl. Just now hitting my year anniversary and I’ve been crossed trained on every department. I’m who they call when someone calls out. I don’t have a department and I think they keep that under the radar because of modernization. I’m labeled under...

    Am I the only one that actually LIKES modernization?

    Seriously, all I ever see are hundreds of people complaining about their jobs and saying “screw Target” and “Brian Cornell is selfish” and “modernization is a failure” I for one, personally love my job, I consistently get 40 hours a week. Have always gotten 40 a week at the 7 different stores...

    Logistics What's everyone's opinion on the (possible) elimination of the Reverse Logistics Expert position?

    Reverse Logistics Expert...ugh RECEIVER! I mean let's be honest, its pretty much happening at some point. It's leaked from the Fall National. It's being done in test stores. It's been rumored ever since modernization came into existence. With Kellogs having gone to "In Warehouse" and Nestle...

    Do they really believe?

    Does leadership actually believe modernization is a good thing? I'd say at my store, only one ETL says and thinks it is. She goes on and on about awesome it is, even when wondering through a packed and unpushed backroom. The other etls and stl may say it is, but they don't think it is. I...

    DBO's don't really own their areas

    So the farce the dbo's opening their areas continue. How can anyone say a dbo.owns their area when they have no say about the setup in the backroom Example: even though the backroom chemical aisle was still packed full, taking up three or four shelves above head level, an ETL, following...

    Why do some employees get to work at a relaxed pace and others are expected to run around all rushed to get a million things done

    The people in beauty and H&A never seem like they are rushed. They are allowed to work at their own pace it seems and are never approached by management to go faster, from what I've seen. Meanwhile, others are ridden by management it seems to go faster, take up the slack, drop what you're doing...

    Priorities all wrong

    Came in today to find the whole chemical backroom aisle with product on the floor. Someone had taken all the product off the top shelves and put it on the floor. Apparently, we are getting a visit from our dtl, and one of the etl's did it in anticipation of it being ladderless. Well that's...

    New and confused

    So I've been with Target for a whole 2 days now. I love the job, but am a little confused as to how the store is handling my training. I worked for Target back in 2000/2001, in the stockroom. During the interview I told them that I worked in receiving for about a year and a half, so I was...
