Ahh... that's probably it. The promoted from within Closing Team Lead at my store didn't have outside training that I was aware of. They were trained by the (at the time) Closing Lead before that person moved to GMTL and they help out the GM team with their workload. It could be that you already showed you knew a lot that could be easily shown in your own store. Since you should report directly to your SD, if you feel you'd like to learn more about other areas just to add to your knowledge, then maybe ask them or HR? In my store, if you express interest in learning something, they do their best to arrange to make that happen.... then promoted to a temp TL then to ClosingTeam lead. ...
When I was promoted to Closing TL I spent time in two different stores before moving to my current store and training with the leads there, though I took a transfer as apart of my promotion so my current SD wanted me to train somewhere specific.For those of you who were promoted in store to team lead what kind of training did you receive? Every team lead I know was sent to another store for outside training but I was not. Just curious if others also didn't receive outside training?

Gotta admit, I was 100% a free pair of hands for packing a couple nights. I was even warned it would happen. 😓Not everyone is sent out for training. Depending on store needs, your peers, your neighboring stores strengths and numerous other factors, your SD may decide to keep you in house. There have been many horror stories from returning trainees that “the other store didn’t really teach me much, just used me as an extra pair of hands to push merch !” For which your store paid you.
That’s a given. Leave something unsecured one time and that’s your warning. You can’t do it again and expect to get away with it. Anytime I close I have a checklist that I go through to make sure that I have done everything I am supposed to doClosing lead at my old store just got termed for leaving something unsecured more than once. I'm just saying. I had keys as Flow TL, but never had to secure the building.
