I won't say I disagree with you, but I do understand where they are coming from. I'm sure the majority of TLs who get tuition reimbursement don't become ETLs, so to make the tuition reimbursement worth it for Target, they only allow courses that would help them grow in their current position.Actually tuition reimbursement is for team leaders and above... I have been using it! i think it makes sense because if someone is balancing working as a TL and school, then that shows a ton of drive and this person probably has ETL potential! My only issue with the tuition reimbursement program is A) its only $3000 per fiscal year (not school year) and B) it is only for classes that are business related and can be applied to your position... The reason I have an issue with that is because to be an ETL you can have your degree in ANYTHING but then they only help pay for business? Technically, any class can help me get to that level so why not help pay for it? I would understand if you needed a business degree to be an ETL, but you don't so it doesn't really match up IMO
Yeah, so it might be a lame excuse, but as far as Target excuses go, I've heard worse. Also, I've heard of some TLs getting other, non-business courses to count, its all about the wording you use.
