Is what I did, I hung on until they let me go. My husband is on disability and is on my insurance. We both have health issues that we relied heavily on our insurance for, hoping I can afford to get COBRA and my unemployment gets approved. You can't cash out your pension or 401k until after 30 days from separating from the company. So it's a waiting game now for $$$ and a gamble for insurance. Sucks that it comes down to this when you thought you'd be with the company until retirement and all of a sudden you find yourself sinking fast :( It was very hard for me to hang on towards the end without just walking out but like you said it's not just me it's my husband also so I hung on until I was "disposed of"
This all of this!!!!!!!! Hanging on seems the only reasonable thing to do. I understand and it's heartbreaking.

Yesterday I spent about 30 minutes with a guest helping him pick out a microwave. This guy was unusually chatty and had a lot of very specific questions that most guests don’t think to ask, but I did my best. We looked at several models and I showed him the t.com reviews for each one, and even got into discussing which parts are the most failure prone...the turntable, the door latch, the magnetron, etc. He ended up choosing an Oster that was on sale and I got our GSTL to give him the additional 15% off online only deal on top of the sale price. He shook my hand and left happy.

Too bad about the 5,000 other guests and 300 repacks sitting around LOL. Luckily for corporate there are 168 hours in every week, so if they want me to do this full time while we’re taking 6 - 7 holiday trucks then I better be getting overtime every week.

Not sure if it means anything but... Our Store Director announced that the following Lead and Leader position are coming back to our High Volume Super Target store:
- Deli Lead
- Frozen Lead
- Style/ Beauty Lead
- Style/ Electronics Lead

- Food & Beverage Leader #3
- Food & Beverage Leader #4
- Each Food Leader cover two food related departments (Dairy/Frozen, Meat/Produce, Deli/Bakery, Market/Starbucks/Cafe)

Pretty much almost all the positions that were eliminated over the course of these past 8 month.

interesting that they're going to attempt to have a softlines TL run either electronics or beauty. i think they're gonna run into some of the same issues that they faced with beauty/tech lead but i guess we'll see
I agree. I've been "watching" Beauty for a few weeks (I'm an SLTL) until their new TL is on boarded and trained. It's been... something. Luckily, the Beauty TMs are pretty good.

Today my DTL came in to my store and helped with packing in SFS. Does anybody else's DTL do something similar?
Never!😱 His thing is sending us the worst leadership team on the planet, who can’t run this bleepshow, but I’ve never seen him do any physical work to help us out. Shoots a pretty good stick at talking to the ETLs, but that’s about it.🙄

Not here. Ours is attached to his phone, and walks around the store. Coincidentally, he likes to observe the SFS area (and probably more than likely oblivious to the modernization effects in the back of pallets and product waiting to be Pushed and Backstocked, but anyway....)

Now that I think of it, he likes to visit very often...a little too much for my liking.

Our headcount is similar to what it read before our 5th anniversary as a store. But that makes for lots of chiefs and no Indians come January...

They were pushing truck one of the 30 carts pallets scattered throughout the sales floor. Yes we have pallets of boxes on the sales floor everywhere.


not to mention the 60 carts in the back room down every aisle.
