Target Corp just thinks its TMs are just sheep and cattle. That we will follow them no matter what.Maybe it's the store I'm at, or maybe it's the area I'm in, but I feel like sometimes Target thinks of it's employees as teenagers.
Could I be wrong?
Sounds JUST like my store. The sales floor is the same way, hell half of them are roommates. Call me old fashion but I work my shift THEN my life starts.Our store is full of the cliques & the ETLs are the clique-leaders.
GE? Prom queen. HR? Cheerleader. HL1? Chess club. HL2? Jock. STL? Class prez.
I've seen those in leadership go bye-bye. Sometimes it's interesting/amusing to guess how long some of them will be with us. Sometimes we can just tell the days are numbered within a few days of their introduction.There's quite a few in leadership I'd vote off the island...
I think you may be on to something here, maybe target could be thought of as an "alternative school" of sorts. Can't hack it in the real world? Tired of a job that looks for experience and then expects your contributions to the company to be equal to or greater than your salary? Wanna skate by with your fresh attitude? Well Target leadership is the perfect answer for your employment special needs!Maybe it's the store I'm at, or maybe it's the area I'm in, but I feel like sometimes Target thinks of it's employees as teenagers.

like a circus; shooting them out of a cannon - buh bye now!Re: departing ETLs - Too bad we couldn't send 'em off with a bang, ie:
*firing them out the door to land on a pad (or not) at the end of the parking lot
*have a glee-style musical a la Von Trappe family ("so long, farewell; you're toast & we all knew it...")
*they come into an office stripped completely bare
*launching them out in a shopping cart screaming across the lot
The possibilities are endless.
