but what I am not sure of is how to best determine which endcaps to use for the Sales Planners. Basically, where do the products shift to and how do I know when prioritizing?
I'm pretty sure they're considered confidential documents and so we aren't supposed to share them outside of Target. They should be accessible to anyone on Workbench, though.
You *do* realize that 99% of companies post core roles (AKA - a "job description") to the public for anyone applying for a position, right?
If a job description is "confidential" at Target, then that means no TM should be allowed to tell anyone what they do at work. Since there is no rule that forbids a TM from telling people what their job entails at work (i.e. their job description), then that is de facto proof that a job description - "core roles" - is not intended to be confidential info.
Hi, all! I am brand new with Tar-jey as a PTL and am wondering about some basic processes involved with the POG fills/transitions/etc. I understand the basic process of using the Adjacency Calendar/Map to plan in advance for transitions/etc., but what I am not sure of is how to best determine which endcaps to use for the Sales Planners. Basically, where do the products shift to and how do I know when prioritizing? During PTM, the POGS that go MPG are going to go clearance? When do I take product to the backstock? When do I flex? I am having a hard time figuring out what to do with the product that I am replacing with the new POGS. What am I looking for to determine where the old product goes? Any help would be mucho appreciado!
You *do* realize that a job description is not the same as core roles, which is an internal company document meant only for the team members currently employed by Target, right?
Since there is no rule that forbids a TM from telling people what their job entails at work (i.e. their job description), that is fine. However, this OP was asking for specific copies of the core roles, which is a no no. Two different things.
The core roles is not available during the job hiring process. The website states: Target Stores
Help all guests promptly and efficiently
Keep store clean, well-stocked and clutter-free
Be a respectful, safe Target team member.
The rest of the role is described only during the new videos that are shown during the hiring process and what the new tm discussing with the etls during the hiring process. They do not receive core roles until their first shift, after they are 100% complete with the hiring process. As many a poster stated above, posting these documents online will either get you fired or at least a very large headache.
Never flex. Flex is the only four letter word that should never be uttered in TGT. If you're 100% on your location accuracy and setting everything to POG, mysupport what aisles/endcaps set light. Check the instocks report under the store performance tab to see the areas with suspected instock problems that will need your attention. This will save a TON of challenge/repush/backstock/instocks double work. No one should be faking endcaps, and they shouldn't tie things to weird physical sections in order to fake them.
Backstock what doesn't fit into the home location or in no longer on pog. 80% of the time, is it discontinued product that will come back out in the price change workload. If you flex this stuff out, pricing will not be able to find it and it will affect their score (you can use sf tie app, but you have to manually break the tie when the products gone. it's a waste of time most of the time, imo.) The exception to this is if you scan an item and its status is PLU pending. This stuff (like the Halloween endcaps) will be going clearance in a couple of days, and it's best to move it into the seasonal area. Break your sf tie and retie the product into the seasonal area where you put it.
It sucks to do spl for an entire area and have tons of clearance and backstock. A lot of etls, especially old school, jump into flex mode. I was a hardcore "FLEXIE" when i started, not realizing the underlying damage i was doing to the processes that keep the store full and impactful. don't be a flexie.
You don't get to decide what's confidential. Nobody here (except the imaginary posts you seem to have read, but the rest of us can't see) has said that core roles need to be confidential. But Target has, and so they are. That's really the end of the analysis.
If spot deems it confidential (& don't doubt they would), they'll come after this forum for the hell of it.
Don't forget what Scram went through yrs back. We've tried to err on the side of caution for the forum's sake.
If you want to argue it into the ground (something you seem to regularly enjoy), that's your perogative.
You don't work for spot any more so it's no skin off your back but if all you wanna do is pick fights, maybe it's time you reevaluate your free time.
The very first response (coincidentally mine) told her where to find the information.
But ya know what? I'm gonna give you a pass for your behavior. I saw on another thread that you worked for Target in "the early 80s." Even making the assumptions that make you as young as possible ("early 80s"=1984, and you had just turned 16 that year), that means you turn/turned 44 this year, and you spend your days driving around to retail stores talking to teenagers about how to sell Playstations. Yeah, I can see how you'd be depressed and cranky all the time. I certainly would be. So, no hard feelings. Continue venting, I'm sure you need to.
Sounds like it must be pretty lonely if all you can do is come to a forum so you can tell us what all we're missing, what it was like when YOU were a TL, how great you're doing at sony, yadda yadda yadda.
With such good money as you're making, maybe you could buy a life.
