I got my call for orientation. I go in tomorrow. Apparently HR has not hired many people recently, so I will be having orientation by myself lol. She said she wants to do it "quickly" since I already will be familiar with everything.

Weird feeling. Never though I would be back in red and khaki again.

The company may be the same but different store could be a vastly different culture.

Take what they offered you& say nothing. Basically, a 2nd chance for you. Don't go in as I know this already, etc. be dumb & build up your training meter or all areas by asking for it.

Definitely will do that.... Not going to blow this. I plan to just smile and nod. Actually, I'm hoping to keep the fact I used to work at Target quiet if I can.... that way TMs/TLs who don't know will be impressed with how fast I "learn" everything.....

Then when they find out you were a team lead they'll think you're a weirdo.

Well, the other option is to tell them now and they still think he's a weirdo. It doesn't really matter either way. Nor does it matter what they think. Honestly, I've never gotten into a discussion on where anyone was before we got to Target. It just doesn't come up, because no one cares.

The other option is looking like a know-it-all at the beginning and alienating people before they get to know him. I would definitely tell them you worked at target before but omit the TL part. Just say you were in electronics.

Using the training part, makes you look like you are willing to learn & fast learner. Again, make no mention about your former status at spot. Just say, I used to work Salesfloor. Otherwise, if the word gets out that you were a tl, resentment by other tl's may start.
