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.

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.
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.

Not sure if this is a truth but on the west coast the rumor mill is buzzing about Osha fining Target in a big way for multiple violations...anyone hearing any of this?
I know that a big pamphlet about OSHA rules recently materialized at one of our corkboards so with that development that news would not surprise me.

Can anybody keep up with the move app?
I haven't even touched it in over a week. Trying to finish the truck push first, but been dragged away to SFS. And everyday, I see my areas add up on number of DPCIs to pull....

On that note, had a Sr.TL "got salty" over the fact why reshop wasn't done. I point to the remaining U-boats of truck from today, yesterday, and the pile of Backstock left from the previous person pushing my area. And she knew of the fact that she and I were helping SFS picking throughout the day this past week...😔

I was fortunate to have barely enough time to Backstock, but was told get ready for a double tomorrow...And my backroom aisle.. I'm Backstocking wherever there's open space in my area from here on out. No point in even organizing it by store aisle anymore.

And I can literally hear my backroom aisle groaning.


Reason #2,702 on why modernization sucks.

yo how in THE FUCK have we been missing sales during these last couple weeks what with 100,000 guests piling in the door right after opening? I mean it's not like a huge miss, like 2 - 5% off but still. I'm thinking maybe it's a combo of GS getting hit with a fuckton of returns + lots of empty holes on the salesfloor because we can't get these monster trucks 100% every day. Whassup corporate!

Also today sucked because literally EVERY SINGLE GUEST who asked for my help finding something got sent by me to other stores because of the infamous "0 on floor, 0 in back, 1 on hand" bullshit. This must be what it was like working at Target Canada. Sucks to suck!
The real question is why do other stores send guests to yours without calling when it says one on hand? Before I send anyone anywhere I offer to call or provide their number

Thankfully I haven't had any guest get assblasted about that yet, if I run into the dreaded 0-0-1 thing then I just tell them that inventory tracking is useless this time of year and that "1 on hand" makes t.com say we have it when we probably don't, and that if it's not located in the back then it might as well be on the moon and they understand. I think it's because a lot of what they're looking for this time of year is intended to be given as a Christmas gift so they're more willing to go to greater lengths to find it, even if that means driving around to several stores (which they were probably planning on doing anyway in the course of Christmas shopping). It just annoys me because I would rather help someone find something and put it in their hand.
