So, I am a SrTL with Target now.... I've been getting the promotion runaround with Target. (Going through a TL Development Program that was supposed to end in an interview, and not getting an interview, having my application for ETL denied by my HR and not allowed to go through the process with the ETL hiring staff, and then getting a mass email being asked to refer an ETL to Target - the biggest slap in the face of all). So, I got a job offer today to be a Store Manager with a smaller company (still a nice raise) that actually promotes from within (The District manager I interviewed first with started as a cashier, and the Regional Manager started as a Store Manager). I have to say, going to a smaller company where I will definitely be earning my increased pay is a little daunting, but I really am leaning towards taking it, as an investment in my own future. I don't want to keep getting the run around with Target and never promote because I applied as hourly to begin with instead of salaried. Any pro/con thoughts from anyone?
