In a perfect world you can go by your adjacency and set each endcap where it is assigned. The adjacency will show each endcap to be something like "D115 08, D115 10, D115 07" then all of the salesplanners will be named "08F random SPL" "10B random SPL" with the B and F indicating backs and front, then when new SPL come in you should just be able to look at where SPL "08" is set to replace with the new 08. Sadly it doesn't always work the way it is supposed to.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?
LOL ROFL....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 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?LOL ROFL....
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.
Once you reset the endcap, don't worry about the PTM stuff. Once the tie is broken, it will not drop into the system again unless it's dually located down a PTM aisle.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!
And, let's not beat around the bush here, anyone who was ever actually a TL would be well aware of this, especially since we had to take that stupid Protecting Target Information training over and over again. Anything on Workbench--or any company document, for that matter--is confidential unless it explicitly states that it is not. To recall the example in the quiz, we can't even share recipes that are posted in "rah rah Archer Farms yay!" articles that are posted on Workbench or break room table talkers.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.
Note--this is the Plano team's philosophy, and is correct. Do not be surprised if, when you attempt to implement this (clearly superior) approach, you get a whole lot of push-back from upper management/the logistics teams. They do not understand how much better things will run this way, and instead insist on a "keep your crap out my backroom!" philosophy. They don't care how hard it will be for you to set new planograms when there's a ton of stuff flexed onto the old one; they don't care how hard it will be for the pricing team to find the merchandise; they don't care that the only way the company will ever realize they're sending too much crap is if we stop bending over backwards to fit as much of it on the floor as we can in order to minimize A-markdowns; etc. etc.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.
All I am saying is that something that is *publc knowledge* can not be confidential. This is the same as me writing the color of my house on a sheet of paper, putting it in a safe, and saying it is confidential. You can call it confidential all you want, but the fact is it really isn't except in the mind of someone who is completely detached from reality.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.
I'm not the one that picked fights. The dude asked for some freaking help and the Target police basically accused him of asking to send nuclear weapons plans to Russia.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.
All I can say is I make good money and have good benefits. Much better than when I was a TL. FYI - only about 10% of our time is spent at retail stores. We go to industry conventions, college campuses, internal marketing meetings/planning sessions, and lots more. Other than that, I am either working from home or the office. Would I ever go back to working in a big box for 40 hours a week? Hell no.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.
I like this forum for two reasons: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.
