So I know this is probably a common question but I’m not sure. So I’ve been a guest advocate for like 3 months now, and I’m really starting to dislike it to be honest. I’m looking to switch departments, but I don’t really know if this is possible. I know that not all stores are the same, so this is probably a really dumb thing to ask on here, but I’m just wondering what the general rules are on it if it’s possible.

Depends on your stores needs and if they need a person in a different department.

Also, Considering you’ve been there for a small amount of time, You’re probably seasonal and it would be a bit harder switching departments. But again, Depends on your store and your Team Leaders

Yeah, I’m seasonal. So I’m definitely gonna at least wait until I see if I get to stay or if they let me go. If I get to stay then I will probably try to.

If you can get training or pick up shifts in other areas. They'll be much more likely to keep you and you will have an idea if you'll like other areas more. Another option at my store might be Starbucks because we can't keep anyone over there

Are you sure you're seasonal? 3 months ago was before most stores would have been hiring seasonal positions. If it doesn't say SE near your name on the grid, you're not seasonal.

Huh, guess your store started earlier than most do.

How easy a transfer will be likely depends on what area you desired to transfer to. Fulfillment is usually always in need of more people at my store for example.

That’s good, that’s the place I’m interested in transferring to

Now that seasonal can last 165 days, stores can hire seasonally for BTS/BTC and keep the team member as a seasonal through q4. 😡
