Hey everyone. I'm going to try to make a long story short. I've been working at Target for almost 7 months now as a flexible fulfillment team member but have worked in other areas of the store when needed (flow, hardlines, guest experience). I regularly assist different team leads in their positions by jumping into different areas of the store when sfs is done for the day and helping them meet their workloads by overseeing other team members. Recently with all of the new changes that Target has been implementing two team lead positions became available, one for general merchandise and one for closing. I talked with a couple of my leaders and decided that I would go for the gm team lead. I applied and went through the first part of the interview and some basic training for the job but never heard anything back, just recently the position was filled by another tm. Now here's where it gets confusing for me. When I first inquired about the positions my TL-HR and former closing tl (she since tranfered to TL-GM) told me I could go for either position and she would train me to take her place as closing tl if that's the one I want. However, my TL-SFS, TL-GM, and ETL-LOG told me I wouldn't even be considered for a closing team lead position since it requires me to be an LOD, hence me deciding on the general merchandise position. So my question is would I be considered for closing team lead if I applied for it and is it a smart idea to apply again this soon after appling for the general merchandise team lead and not getting the position. Thanks for your advice.
