Hello All, I am looking for a little feedback here. I have worked for Target for three years. My store has a relatively new STL who regularly runs huddles. In his huddles he often calls out specific people and puts them on the spot when he knows they will not know the correct answer. I feel he should be more positive and use the huddles to teach versus belittling team members. This has bothered me for a long time and I feel so bad for new or younger employees. Last night I arrived a tiny bit late to huddle after helping a guest. The huddle discussion had clearly not started as other tms were still arriving and treats were being passed out. He made some usual huddle comments and asked we go around and hear from the team. Many but not all tms at this point were mentioning specific promotions in their work center. When it got to me I said I did not really have anything to add but said my name and the area I was going to be zoning that night. After all team members had spoken he asked the tms that did not speak to move to the center of the circle. He listed my name along with another middle aged woman and two minors. I then said - "oh I spoke." (they had too.) He said that since I did not report on something in my area it did not count. If he did announce this new huddle idea it was before I made it to huddle. We have regular huddles in our store and this has never been done. I then, minorly unhappily, moved to the center of the circle. He told us four since we did not report on our areas we had to sing a Christmas Carol for the other tms! We all just stood there when he further stated that it did not matter which one and we could choose the song. The young girls looked mortified. I then stated, " I do not sing in public." He then said we should pretend we were just singing in the SHOWER!!! Gosh, I was sooo uncomfortable and was slowly shaking my head no. I could feel my cheeks burning red. In my mind I was running through ideas of when and how to quit, and how to help these poor young girls if this went further. He finally relented and said instead we could just name our favorite Christmas movie. He went on to tell the group this is meant to be in good fun like the way he makes the huddles sing happy birthday to people who are not having a birthday. All this is going on while the store is extremely busy and guest are ringing call boxes all over the store. I feel he crosses the line between having good fun and making people feel ridiculed and mocked. I think this falls short of harassment because he does not single out any one particular group. I do know myself and many many other team members have come to dread our huddles because we fear we might be singled out and degraded or have to silently witness others become uncomfortable from his negative style. What do you all think? Am I overreacting? Would you follow up in any way after this, and if so to who?
