Re: “Getting the Ax

I have this at my target as well. I work at the target in wheaton il and they have been getting rid of higher paid team leads. They want to get rid of me too, but they are letting me find a new job since I graduated and looking for a career, but I have over heard them talking in the offices, those vents travel everything, about getting rid of a softlines tl that has been there since the store opened like 17 years. Saying that he will not quit and they need to start writing coachings to fire him, and he just wants to retire in 3 years, but they don't want to let him make it there. They told me personally that they were going to fire me and said I have 3 months till I get fired. I asked how if I didn't do anything wrong and my etl said it doesn't matter the other etls will make up things and that they already have. This ETL was nice to tell me and said that he told them that he wouldn't do it, coachings, CCA, or final, because we thought I am the best TL they have. Then they asked since I have a degree if I thought of moving up, an ETL. I told them no I want to be an engineer and that I didn't want to be part of target's new bogus policies. So, they told me to speed up the job search and find a new job soon. WTF, I'm good enough to be an ETL but not a TL. I've worked there for over 6 years, so I do get my full 401k pay out, and HR will let me cash in my vacation time, so I'll be ok even if I don't find a job first. My room-mate was one that got fired as well for bogus stuff that had nothing to with what really happened, made up stuff. I have seen others get fired too. So much for any costumer service you wanted at target its all going to be gone, I have guest come in to ask me about electronics questions because they know I know what I'm talking about, I have an electronics engineering degree. Those guest will have to go to best buy now. And I don't blame the etls at the store the blame the company, the ETLs have been nice giving me time to find a job and telling me about it. Well, I got a job over as a technician and I can move up from there so here's my notice, peace out target, I use to do all my shopping there too, guess I'll do it at meijer or wallmart now.
