Eh. Feel a tiny bit bad about that answer. On the off chance this was a real question. . .A new ETL can be put into any ETL position. Most common are GE and SF (hardlines, softlines or both). HR is also pretty common. I've seen a couple put into LOG, but only very few. Now, that I think about it, I've never seen a new ETL-Rep. . .but I've only ever worked in a store that even had one of those for a couple of months. It is probably possible.
Also, Target does not choose ETL placements based on gender.
Lol!! Our ETL Softlines was a guy, but he just got promoted to ETL-Food at another store. You're lucky I like you! And!!! my fellow SL-TL is a man. So there! Also, I am a woman if you didn't know! :lol2:
I find it interesting that men wouldn't be in those roles. At HQ, almost every department is evenly split between men and women. So you end up with guys working on women's clothing and stuff. It gives good perspective though and prevents groupthink.
My store has a male ETL-Softlines. Other than the ETL, we only have one male who works in softlines (though he's on LOA so people forget about him). Also, walruses is a TL, not an ETL. But close enough. :-D
