I'm having issues signing up for health insurance. I'm on the pay and benefits site, but there is nowhere for me apply for the plans or even view them. Any suggestions?

No company is worth a shit if they make you wait that long. When and if you get the insurance and if you're over 40 they will do everything they can do slice your benefits. Efficiency, loyalty, punctuality, accuracy, joining the culture and experience isn't worth a crap. Get something else. Target will never change. Good TM's deserve respect and they don't get it at the fucking dog.

Target used to not provide insurance to anyone but “level 2s, level 3s” and etls. And level 2s only got 1 week of vacation, no matter how long they’ve worked there. Benefits now are an improvement.

Level 2s were the signing specialist, what would have been gsa’s, electronics specialist, jewelry specialist, and chargebacks.

Go on ehr to target pay & benefits. You need to have a weekly average of 29.5 for whole year. Work for spot, at least 6 mounts with 1000 hours worked.

If If If If Garbage team leads will dictate a new TM's future. They're ETL puppets. Yes, ASANTS and in very rare cases a good TM (may) get 29.5 although not likely. Better odds playing the Powerball. ETL's are STL puppets.

Of course, we know that, it's old news. Read the post: ASANTS older folks grandfathered so to speak? More power to you, you all deserve it, for the new young ones? Wake up, realize that MOST companies love to cut bennies. Stars in your eyes, belly full of Kool Aid and a smooth orientation ain't gonna guarantee you 29.5 and 12 months is a fucking long time.

So if most companies love to cut bennies, what are folks gonna do? Find one of the miniscule amount of jobs that don't require you to work a certain amount of hours or months before one is qualified for insurance?

For the “young ones”, quit expecting the world be handed to you. The ONLY thing that’s gotten worse about benefits over the last 20 years is the cost and the deductible amount. Both of which are NOT controlled by Target. OBAMACARE caused the avg hours to go from 20 to 29.5.
I mean seriously, do you just wait for a topic to be brought up so you can slam target about EVERYTHING.

I wasn't grandfathered in; I managed to average enough a few years ago to qualify.
I did it by sticking it out in an area in which most of my team are part-timers, came in when they needed coverage, made myself available when hours were lean.
Flew below the radar, so to speak.
