Hi folks..submitted my resignation 5 weeks ago on Black Friday and just worked my final shift on Friday 12/30...had to be Recovery LOD of all things but hey it is what it is. Anyways, just wanted to stop thru and thank you all for the many messages you guys have contributed to this board. Not only did this keep me informed about upcoming happenings but it also provided me a place to share and exchange ideas as well as vent a time or two. I will continue to lurk and occassionally post just to stay abreast on bullseye happenings. I am extremely curious to know what changes AE12 has in store, lol. Anyways it has been a roller-coasteresque 10 and a half years. I would not trade this experience for the world. Happy New Year Targeteers and stay encouraged and optimistic about the company for yourselves and your teams!

Yes, moving on to another job where I will be a store manager for a high volume retail store...funny how I wasn't "ready" to be an ETL, but was able to secure this role. #Winning :)

You have spent ten years with the company? What were your roles, and your final role? I have been with the company nearly four years and don't want to budge due to job security, so to see someone leave after ten is a huge surprise. They must have put a nice offer on the table for ya.

As a Sr.TL, you are supposed to basically be on "bench" for an ETL position. Did you just get tired of waiting for one to open up? What PG is a Sr.TL? 13 or something?

Thanks for the info! One of the biggest opportunities for the company is retaining talent-- many promising individuals tend to leave the company after several years of service due to the difficulty of moving upwards. But many thanks for the decade of service, I know your store(s) will miss you and everything you've contributed. And hey-- many people have come back stronger and in ETL roles after leaving for a few years. You may just miss the place enough to come back as an ETL/Business Partner/DTL
