Been there. I have been with Target since 2000, and since last year, I've been making the same rate as a first-day new hire. I brought this up with my SrTL-HR. Her response, "I'm sorry hun, but there's nothing I can do about that." (BTW, it irks me to no end when she calls me "hun." If I were a Hun, I'd be riding across the steppes of Asia, and making more than I am with Spot.)

I've had that happen before too. Quietly asked my TL if it was a fluke and she responded she wasn't sure, but not to question the unexpected gift since no one else noticed it. Extra 9¢ raise for me that year, lol.
Nice.

ETL-HR came to me directly and told me about it.

Target's shipping is a lot better than it used to be and they did a good job investing in that.

I ordered an online-only bedset recently. Ordered on March 26. Said it'd be at my place on April 6th. Delivered on April 1st.

I am quite happy.
Took me two weeks to get an item that came from 2 hours away once. I didn't really care as long as I got it, I just found it funny.

Another time an item said it would be here in two days and I got it the next day, also from another city two hours away.

there's a chance that these were done for specific people for "reasons" and that the bulk of the store did not receive a bump

Even more hurt for them!
making an acquisition by ultramega corp (Amazon) more likely. IIRC they are partnered with a couple other companies in a healthcare/management thing. if they get split they will both be much weaker and blood in the water will make things interesting

Reasons we need a Democratic president: Fucking break up Amazon. They're way too big.

this is a smart move, hardlines is where Sears can make gains

though i really think they should ditch that brand altogether and focus on revamping Kmart because discount stores are more relevant than ever and Kmart isn't stuck to the mall

I'm surprised Amazon hasn't entered the perscription drug market yet. Or have they?

Did your City make the Top 10 Target infested Cities ????




Knoxville, Tenn., topped the list with one of the retailers for every 37,469 residents. Allentown came in third, followed by Saint Paul, Minn., Columbia, S.C., Orlando, Fla., and Fullerton, Calif.

Pittsburgh, along with Charlotte, N.C., San Diego, Calif., and Los Angeles has eight Targets. Chicago, Ill., has 20 of the retailers.
