Read something on reddit about employees that have been with target 4+ years get tenure pay but there wasnt much info on it on that site. Anyone hear of this and have any info about it?

It is true. At my store the base pay for team members was raised 50 cents which was a 3.5% increase. Since I make more than the new base pay and I've been with Target longer than 4 years, I received 3.5% of my base pay as a permanent raise. Based on what I've heard from other stores, it sounds like not all stores are doing this. Not sure why and hopefully I'm wrong. All veterans deserve this increase.

The increase went into effect November 7th.

My store just got an across the board $1.50 raise so I highly doubt they would add tenure increases as well. I wonder if the tenure increases are for those stores/TMs that didn't get the big ad-hoc raise?

$1.50 raise for everyone is very generous. My raise was about half that. It was also just for team members. Team Leads received nothing.

If it started on nov 7 then you wouldnt see it on this past paycheck. It would be on the next payday if it is real but sounds too good to be true

Only raise we got at our store was the annual increase, 1%, 3% and 5%. Most got 3% for a whopping 30 cents!

I looked at my paystub and despite being with the company over 10 years my pay rate is the same. So I don't think this tenure raise is happening at all stores. Either that or it's slowly being rolled out to all stores and it's not happening in our district yet.

I only got it because my store raised the starting wage. I guess all that complaining about how unfair it was to the veterans paid off.

No tenure pay offered at our store that I'm aware of. As mentioned in another thread, our region's stores bumped the starting wage to $17.50.

It's possible that peak performers who bring the pay issue up with management might conceivably negotiate a pay boost, particularly if management is concerned about losing yet another successful TM to better pay somewhere else. Normally, my impression is that Target avoids negotiating pay raises with existing TMs but these are unusual times for staffing.
