I get what you are saying and before I worked HR I felt it all very strongly. But after being in the TSC and hearing conversations leaders (all levels) have about tms and then seeing how little tms are appreciated at the end of the day, I get it.I don't get these folks who take so little pride in their work ethic and have so little consideration for fellow TMs that they will call out at the drop of a hat, not to mention come in late and leave early.
Target sucks at creating good leadership. If any of us come across it it's because that person is good at it, not because Target taught them anything. Training anyone in leadership seems to be all about metrics and goals and nothing about managing human beings. And it's born out by what we all see in our stores where tms are expected to do a full days work in their measly 4 hour shifts 3 or 4 days a week with little regard for the reality of the situation.
Then, after a year of busting your ass they hand out 20 cent raises? If leadership at least understood that acknowledgement on a regular basis does wonders for morale they would see more loyalty. But I see a lot of dejected tms everyday who lose their drive to be loyal to a company that obviously doesn't care if they are there or not.
A good company understands that their workforce is an asset and when treated with respect will go the extra mile. Unfortunately, Target doesn't embrace that philosophy and everyone suffers for it.
