Coming in as an outside hire for gmtl is definitely the hardest job in the building unless you have a really solid gm tl to lean on for a while. There is a lot of just technical things that don't always come up all the time, amd many things just need to be done fast which isn't easy when you are new. Rely on your other gmtls and make sure gm etl gives you solid directions of what they want done. Good luck lots of knowledgeable people on this sight so feel free to ask questions.Sounds like every store is different…i’m an outside hire. Wonder how long it will take me to get the jist of everything.
If they let the TL go and paid a TM a lower rate, then yes it would be beneficial to the company. But since the TL position exists and the TL is already in the building and being paid regardless of what job they are doing, it saves the company money by not also having a TM there to do those tasks.At our store you get carts, cashier, and work in electronics because the store is cutting hours to save money.
Of course we then pay a higher wage to said GM TL to do those jobs.
Math is hard for Target apparently.
It runs SO much better this way. We had some management changes semi-recently and not all of them are keen on tasking. Of any sort. At all. It shows throughout the entire store, not just their department. Storewide we lost A LOT of fantastic, long-term TMs due to it. It seems to slowly be getting a little better but apparently it's hard to get rid of an ETL so we're stuck.I'm also a firm believer that TLs should spend at least two-thirds of their hours tasking, and frankly, ETLs should spend a bit of time doing so as well.
