This is great for states where Target is paying double the minimum wage. Not so much in my state where $15 will be the minimum in 2020 already. I'm curious to see if Target will raise our starting pay beyond $15 when that happens. If they do, great. If not then years of experience and reviews and performance raises meant nothing.
bwawawaw

sorry had to get that out as it is a crap day after a crap day repeat ad infinitum

there is a strong possibility that won't happen them adjusting the pay for legacies but there could be enough noise made for them to be "kind"

Not necessarily. If the state minimum wage is similar to Target it gives you the option to leave Target without batting an eye and a worry. If getting the 30+ hours requirement in order to get healthcare is now highly improbable anymore it makes quitting even easier than that. I doubt they will raise your pay in lieu of States already stated increase to $15. I feel bad for people in the South who will be sweating bullets to keep their job at Target. They could give little or no hours but expect you to have open availability, making a second job even at a minimum state rate less likely.

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
