When I worked at Target (2001-04) we would have a daily "huddle" in the backroom, far from the salesfloor. It wasn't a pep rally at all, just the team leads and ETL(s) talking about the night's goals, addressing potential problems (for example, if it was a Sunday we would get a heads up about what items we were out of and what we could and could not write rain checks for), assigning departments and making a guess as to what time we'd be out that night. 99% of my shifts were at night (5pm-11pm), but on the rare occasion that I did work mornings (usually ad set on Sundays) we would have our huddle by the service desk. Depending on the ETL we might do stretches or something (which actually felt pretty good and were made even better by the hot chick that would touch her toes in front of you), but never any "HIP HIP HOORAY!" shit.anarky wrote:They didn't have mandatory cheering?
I've been in many stores (WM and Target) where they're having a morning meeting and cheering like morons.
The training is pretty solid. Granted, there is a lot of stuff that can really only be learned "on the job" (no matter how many times you read the manual to figure out how to, say, run a check through, you can obly learn how to do it by doing it). I never worked a cashier shift, but I did enough "Code 1's" that I got it pretty quick. I did, however, hat dealing with vouchers. Those were an archaic pain in the balls, especially when a gift card could have just as easily been issued.JJL wrote:But Target doesn't train you for shit (I thought their training program just sucked when I was there last year, but I later found out that I somehow missed a great chunk of it).

Watch it. If there's two things Michigan holds dear its complaining about our sports teams and our rabbit beatin'.Sleazer wrote:They did that in Wisconsin years ago...shows how far behind Michigan is !
Put down the rabbit bludgeoning tools and go fix your card readers, jeez.

Actually the machines in our Targets have been doing that for quite a while now - and they beep like a muthafuka until you grab your card. Cappytrov just doesn't pay attention.Sleazer wrote:They did that in Wisconsin years ago...shows how far behind Michigan is !
