Trainers were pretty much already placed as voluntary leads without a pay increase at my DC. Have an issue well then see the trainer because the OM's usually can't be found or they've never physically done the job and aren't knowledgeable enough to problem solve most issues. A trainer is now tasked with getting new hires up to speed for the OM's and the Lead to work with but without a bump in pay or the actual time involved in getting people trained the way Target has it outlined in their books. What's happening at my DC now that they are close to rolling out the leads? Trainers stepping down and departments with no trainers or a lack of trainers on that key. They're trying to push for mentors but nobody wants to mentor the new fires because you've either been here long enough that you were already a trainer and don't want to help all the time or not long enough to be considered. They thought that because I am considered one of the better trainers I would benefit from having a lead to work with instead of me being a lead helping a new trainer. I didn't find this out till after all the lead interviews. I'm not going to keep myself stuck in a voluntary position because it benefits you. How's it going at your DC's?
