July 2, 2016 - Unrealistic expectations
Poor Management and Talent
So due to the canada failure and this Transgender policy its obvious target is cutting everything to get some money back. Being a TL I usually write schedules for my team, putting this years hours per week compared to last year its pretty obvious whats going on. Cutting hours for regular TM and forcing TLs to bear more of the workload is a great way to keep good TM around. This would’nt normally be a problem but when you work at a store where all your upper leadership was pushed out (for being long tenured and paid well) and replaced with fresh college bimbos, it gets difficult. Not only do they take an hour to do LOD walks, all of them get together at starbucks for another 45 minutes in the morning. Fucking usless, cant pull their own batches, takes 2 of them to push 1 pull, and insist on doing the schedule even though they obviously dont know what that department needs staff wise. A degree means nothing if you are lazy and have a shit work ethic. Target needs to start promoting TL who have the experience to back it up, to ETL, instead of highering people based solely on the amount of college they have finished.
Target pays them close to 45k per year to drink starbucks and call for backup. Takes notes from your own saying “right people, right place, right time ” and learn to manage your business. If not you’ll end up like t-2728 and have a turnover rate above 40%. Good day sir!
