Is there something in particular that drove them off? Usually there's like, a last incident that was just the straw that broke the camel's back.
Our condescending, gaslighting, hateful bully of a GE etl for the closing expert. She refuses call out literally answers the phone says see you when you get here and hangs up then marks them as no call no shows when they dont come in. We lost a good portion of our already small gm team for that.
Ap I think is goung into military but they.wouldnt work around something in her schedule to begin the process or schooling or something. She got fed up and bailed. At least from what I understand it DID occur after she got reamed for letting a couple grand walk out but tbh she is not able to apprehend and was dealing with a loco at starbucks threatening people with straws (our a
Store smh)

Our first hire for SrTL-Food quit during training. The next one quit the second day on the job. Doesn't take smart people long to realize you can't do what Spot wants done with the hours given. They probably shouldn't had fired the person we had in the first place. At this rate we may never have a SrTL-Food again.
Consumables TL who was hired after I posted this is leaving after about 19 months. I have a feeling they are going to put the Flex TL over there. May God have mercy on their soul.

A couple of front-end team members who had been here since I started (about 2 years) quit pretty recently. Both had privately expressed frustration at our new ETL so I'm guessing that's why they quit. I have to think that morale is going down due to the cut in hours and the loss of so many experienced team members over the past year or so.

STL at my store was in on Tuesday and gone Wednesday two weeks back. Announced to the leads Friday as "pursuing other opportunities". He was a good guy and worked hard, but I suspect his tendency to do things his own way against district wishes didn't do him any favors once the store started slipping below green in some metrics.

Loads of folks are making their plans to head out, apparently it hasn’t been the same when I left Target in November. It’s been getting worse in the front and apparently according to my best friend (who is SETL), they keep mentioning me a lot like “Oh Marcellow would’ve known what to do in this situation”

I've been self-publishing for a while and they're finally starting to gain traction so hopefully in a few months I won't need to worry about that 1 day a week.

I'd love to quit now but I have a 401k loan to repay.

What type of material are you self publishing?

Not to be too vague, but the kind you don't talk about in polite company. If you publish on a regular basis (1-2 times a week, at least 5k words per book), are at least marginally good at designing book covers, and find a good niche, you can do pretty well for yourself. It will still take a lot of work, though, like any other job.

I've written a LOT lately because of the hours going down the toilet.

Anyone who wants good money should look into writing or drawing things for furries.

You have to go to smashwords for anything other than private commissions when it comes to furries. Certain furry bodily features are not allowed on any work published to Amazon.

Guest advocate suddenly quit today, she was scheduled for cash office today as well and that meant the closing guest service team member had to do it instead.
I heard she quit because she couldn't put up with a certain ETL anymore.

Edit: The ETL in question was probably the ETL-SE and it seems like more than a few team members have quit because they couldn't deal with him. I'm getting to that point to be honest as well.
