They won't let us reduce our avail once we've opened it up.
If you're going to school, it'll depend on if you're a favorite of your ETL.
Whenever I open my availability I set an end date so it reduces whether my ETLs like it or not :) but in my store ETLs are flexible with school etc

I'm guessing there might be an occasional Corporate person who lurks on these boards, but I wonder if any of the suggestions or thoughts here in "Dear Corporate" ever get relayed to the powers-that-be?

In that case, corporate, I'll do whatever fucking work you want. JUST PAY ME WELL! People don't believe how little I make when they hear how long I've been with Target. You're just WalMart, but red.

And more hours for the entire store. And to catch the bot. #union #organize
I don't even want 40 solid hours. I just want my time to be fairly compensated while I'm there. They want to go to 15 an hour? Then do it already! What are you waiting for, corporate?! Just fucking do it.

Nice to know my personal info is more likely than not floating around the internet from yet another dumb company. Lol.

Dear Corporate, OPU only works when you: a.) have enough stock on hand to support the orders, and b.) have a standard of inventory control that accurately reports the number of items available for order. My neighboring store apparently has neither, since four out of five of ordered items came back as out of stock. Way to go beating Amazon...🙄

Amazon does have it easier when it comes to inventory control though. They don’t have guests wandering around the store. We should be so lucky

Dear corporate, FIRE YOUR WHOLE IT DEPARTMENT. POS is a fucking joke. How is it acceptable for a register to freeze for 30 seconds when someone accidentally bumps the "help" key? And why is something always breaking? Why do I have at least 2 registers at any given point that don't work for some arbitrary reason? My people are literally just scanning items, they're not messing with anything in the system. You promised a new POS to make it easier to serve guests by the end of this quarter, and now you're delaying it a year? Come the fuck on. Stores started taking steps toward modernization in 2017, catch up.

Walmart is the only major retailer with high-effort POS software that I know of, nobody else even tries

Yeah but Walmart selfcheckout sucks, ours is actually pretty good
Sucks in what way?
My opinion, the human factor. I recently bought a very large tacklebox, took it through their self checkout because the single cashier had a line too long, and the chick watching self checkout only verified the barcode matched the receipt. She even peeled the label up enough to scan it rather than pick it up out of my cart, so she couldn't even judge if it might weigh too much. I could have walked out with it stuffed full of stuff right past her.
