So I recently got promoted to merit position from the floor, been at this Target for a little over a year. In this new position I do so much to help my OM, were on a very small team. After getting this position I realized how natural it is for me to understand operations and business so I change my degree to business and decide to start working towards OM. I go out of my way to do extra work to show my strengths and abilities. Before Christmas I met up will all my SOMs about my development on at least 2 different occasions, Shared a couple projects I am working on and made it clear to my SOMs I want to develop this year to OM. My SOM from my original department told me he definitely sees me becoming OM by next peak season. I take this info to my OM tell them I'd like to apply and ask if I can apply now and they say they will support me 100%. Next week I come in for my shift and my OM says I should wait to apply that I need to build more report with my SOMs and I can possibly apply again the next cycle of OMs (also I heard my DC was hiring 10+ OMs jan-mar). OM says I should complete my projects, go to talent day and in the mean time they will help me with my workday profile. I take my OMs advice as to not step over them. fast forward to now I go into my OMs office for meeting, OM is in their own status meeting with SOM and they have their "to-do" list on their white board which has a specific "development" area which lists to work on: career card, talent day, and interview prep. I had a little hope that this is possibly their plan to help me, or any of the team really but I realized all OMs here dont care about building their team and all those to-dos are actually for themself. I'm in the test area for one project and approaching test for second project, I'm wondering if I should bring up applying for OM again to my OM since they will get an email asking if they support when you apply or if I should ride it out and wait a couple months and hope the application is still open to apply and what kind of experience other people have had going from TM to OM.
