As an embedded trainer I work within the customer's work environment
Target maagement structure is practically flat which allows the employees to quickly address their converns.
Target has gone to great expense to encourage employee interaction because we are geographically seperated.
As an embedded Incorporate trainer I've never had a boring moment. Roughly 20% of what I do call be called routine on a daily basis.
No complaints here because we have forums set up o facilitate communication.
I am black American and have never had cause for concern. In this business men are usually in the minority and the ladies have always treated us with respect.
Umgang mit älteren Kollegen
I started working for Target at the age of 51 ten years ago and have never had any reason to feel that I was being treated differently.
Karriere / Weiterbildung
Target rewards those seeking self-improvement. We are afforded the opportunity to attend formal and informal training on a regular basis. This year Target is hosting two training events each year at a kurort (resort) in the Taunus mountains for the employees.
Gehalt / Sozialleistungen
In this business you always want more but you can't beat the pay for a 40 hour work week. I have full health insurance and get 30 days holidays per year.
Again, this depends on what the customer provides and what you bring to the classrooom. Contractually we ar given workstations, mobile phones and whatever media is necessary to get the job done.
Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein
Target devised a special scheme called "KH4C" (Know how for charity) in which employees compete by submitting English lesson plans evey quarter. The top seven are granted a monetary reward for their favorite charity.
Incorporate training positions are basically full time positions with competitive pay (I know because I was once a freelance trainer) and full benefits under German law.
When I was a freelancer (in competition with Target) I always wanted to be one of them. Now that I am I can understand the attraction I had. Thgey looked and acted professional.
As a freelance language trainer/teacher I wanted to give my students the best of my experience unfortunately the training formats I was able to provide precluded follow-thru in training. In other words, it was like "wam-bam thank you Mam". Being an embedded Incorporate trainer I have direct access to my students on their jobs, and get a unique insight into their work, their problems and their business.
Target has a flat managment structure that doesn't offer much upward mobility. However, this disappointment is offset by the lateral opportunities to earn more money such as giving seminars or developing materials.
