Just wondering, does anyone knows how spot verifies your educational background? Do you need to have transcripts sent into HQ? Also, is there anything that spot would not consider as a expectable degree to become a TL or ETL? For example, would something like a 4 year degree from DeVry count to becoming a ETL? Thanks!

4 Year degree from DeVry would qualify for an ETL position. Any 4 year degree will qualify.

As for verification, they may require your transcript. Most companies don't check unless something doesn't add up - if so they'll look in to it further. As far as Target goes, I'm not sure.

It all comes up in the background checks we run on ETL candidates.

is it possible to get hired externally as an etl without a degree, but have 10+ years in retail management?

from that thread, posting by huffington313:
They have 2 departments of recruiters at HQ, one for recent grads and one all they look for is experienced candidates.

here is a link to target careers:

I've seen countless amount of times DTL's turn down experienced candidates without a college degree, for those with a college degree, the only time they remove that barrier is when they are severely short staffed and most make immediate hires, or in rare circumstances.

You will probably need transcripts. Most employers require them for degreed jobs these days.... otherwise what is to stop a high school drop out from claiming he has a master's degree in art history? There would be no way to prove otherwise....

It is me. It's ok though, I like the new name. It marks a new beginning for me. I have decided to work on being nicer to people. From now on, I renounce darkness and will walk in the path of light.
