What I did for three years I did in 2 weeks

You want bullshit, check this out:

if you remember, I was fired because I was wrongfully accused for calling a customer a bitch. What I didn’t tell you about this 8 month hell was that I tried to get the job for three years living a block away from the damn store!!

So I’m fired and out of a job. The next day, I was asking around for a job application but really just want to focus on school if I can’t get anything. I go to foot locker to just to ask about the job and new shoes. You wanna know who long it took to get the job??? TWO WEEKS!!!! Target: 3 years. The best part about foot locker: fast, fun, and friendly actually means something and I get to be myself and get complimented instead of trying to emulate someone only to be complained. The best news is that an old coworker is finally going to put in his resignation papers. This target done fucked up big time because four really good people have left and the fifth one is about to be out the door.

Please help!

Hi I have been working at target for about a year now on the flow team. The past few months I have been taking a lot of harassment from these two girls I unfortunately have to work with. They sit the and call me all kinds of offensive names during huddles and stare and giggle at me and they have even got other team members to join in on it before. I am not the only person these girls target either. What should I do? Targets harassment policy is very strict. They create a uncomfortable work enviroment for me and it gives me so much anxiety that I sometimes have to go home early because I can no longer work. Any ideas?

Annual review, what a joke!!!!!!

Does anyone have any idea how to make sure that my strong disagreement with some wording that a TL wrote on my review? This TL obviously does not know how to use English words correctly, and I have a strong objection to his use of the word CONSTANTLY when he is referring to something that happened once many months ago, and it happened for very good reason as well. I discussed the matter with store leadership today, and I got told, all we can do is talk about it, but we don’t know how to change things written on a review. It seems like tarshit (I purposely use a small t, and these people don’t deserve a capital T) will get to say whatever they want about me, (or any employee), and get away with it. This TL really needs to go back to school to learn how to use English words. The power these knumpskills have over others is far too much. The stuff this evil empire gets away with gets worse and worse and worse with every day.

Unionize!

On March 31, April 2 and April 7 2014, I attended a new employee orientation meeting and training at the Target store in South Setauket New York. At this festive meeting, conducted by a Target human resources “team member” with 14 years (according to her) seniority, an anti-union video was screened – I started to seethe. At one point, this blatant piece of propaganda gave a statistic showing that union membership is on the decline in the USA, implying that unions are antiquated and no longer needed in the USA. What Target’s video failed to mention is the reason for union decline is the loss of American manufacturing jobs and the rise of the low-pay service economy that Target is a part of. The video also gave other reasons why unions are bad for Target employees – items such as a rigid job description, a lack of employee co-operation and individuality, claiming that labor unions are a business and only want your dues….

Almost two years! What am I still doing?

Hello! I would first off like to say that I do not have any problems with anything! I actually LIKE working at Target! Just kidding I really don’t. If it wasn’t for the fact that the people I work with are actually pretty awesome then I would not longer be working there. So far it is the only place that pays more that I am willing to work at. Does anyone else hate the new myTime? I really hate it. I am supposed to be a cashier but because I am trained in Food Ave the system just says “you know what? Lets piss rainebows2014 off a little more and put her over there 3/4 times she has to come in this week! Everyone knows that food ave has a very high turnover rate, I wonder why that is?! I’ve also learned that midshift people in fact do NOT have to pan all 17 stacks of pizzas and can leave all of it for you. I’ve been the on the receiving end of this treatment many times and it pisses me off. It is a busy saturday and now do I not only have to pan 17 stacks of pizza, I have to also do all of my closing duties? That is a joke. This last saturday I actually had someone who was there to help me during my long shift. I was so excited to see another person during my shift I was almost jumping with joy! I am pretty sure I scared some people. More >

red card

what a joke this company is, have been trying for 2 years to remove bad information from my credit report, They have my name with an account number, but wrong social, might as well talk to the wall, I have tried to even pay whom ever has this debit off, they won’t even allow me to do this, I don’t even go in this store and I, tell everyone I see not to, hopefully they’ll fall like k-mart and service merchandice and such. I can wish, I made the mistake of getting a target card in 1996, close it 1999, this account was opened in 2004, can’t get anyone there to commit to anything they agree it’s not mine but can’t remove it, they out source people to check credit reports, that’s another topic. ok I’m done

Turnover….

I was employed with Target for roughly 8 years.  In that time, we went through 8,000 employees. That is no typo or no joke! 8,000 employees. Some worked there for years and quit. Some got interviewed and never showed up for their first day(the smart ones).  Anyone else’s hellhole have this kind of turnover?

ILLEGAL COLLECTION OF DATA=CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT!!!

CORPORATIONS ONLY UNDERSTAND FINANCES.

WENT TO USE MY CREDIT CARD THERE $120.

THEY WANTED TO SEE MY DRIVERS LICENSE, I WAS FINE WITH THAT. BUT THEN THEY SWIPED IT.

THIS IS NONCONSTITUTIONAL AND IS COLLECTING DATA ILLEGALLY. IF YOU TRUST THESE TYPES I HAVE SOME UNICORN POOP TO SELL YOU!

THEY SERIOUSLY NEED TO BE SUED FOR THIS (THESE ARE THE MORONS THAT JUST HAD MULTIPLE PEOPLES CREDIT CARD DATA STOLEN, MINE INCLUDED).

SUE THEM AND STOP THE MADNESS!!!

IF ANYONE KNOWS GOOD TRIAL ATTORNEYS WITH AN IDEA ABOUT CONSTITUTIONAL LAW PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

THANK YOU! THEY HAVE NO REGARD FOR PEOPLE ONLY WHAT THEY CAN SELL THEM AND THEY NEED MONETARY CORRECTION.

The System is Broken

Good morning fellow disgruntled,

 

Life is good, I found this site.  Now onto the “beef”.

 

I have worked at this anxiety-inducing mind-fuck known as Target for two years, and most of it has been a horrible experience.  Yes, I do take responsibility for remaining in this environment, but I liken it to holding my hand over the flame of a candle to see how long I can endure the flesh-sizzling pain.  It has been a test.  But now, I have finally seen the light at the end of the pitch black tunnel, and the time for me to leave has arrived.
