I really need to vent or I’m going to go insane. I’ve worked for Target for a little over 3 years. I started out in a seasonal salesfloor position and have slowly been taking on more responsibility over the years. I became a team trainer, learned the ropes at guest service(showed up to work with an injured foot and could only stand, so I learned), worked for a bit in electronics without being officially cross trained, and eventually made my way to the PFresh team. I was forced into the department so they could fire a girl that was working over there. No one ever told me that specifically, but I’m not dumb. It’s easier to hire a new TM for the salfesfloor an move one of the hardest workers in the store to a struggling department. The old perishable assistant at my store really sucked. He never got anything done, and the tasks that did get done were always half-assed. I practically was doing his job for him. He quit last summer, and it was only natural that I take over the department. Our market team is small. It was only myself and another guy in the department, but I figured out a way to make things work. Within the first month of taking over Pfresh/Market, we saw sales increase and our our department scores sky rocketed. I was really zealous about the fresh start. I reorganized and cleaned our work center from top to bottom, total overhaul. I won’t take complete credit. The other guy, my right hand man, was such a big support and helped me out so much. I don’t think there is a way to thank him enough. Things were on track and looking good anyway. It was an exciting time to be working at Target.
I’ve been at target for 4 months and slowing starting to hate it. They work me too much and are seriously understaffed. Like some days we only have 2 cashiers and need all sales floor to back up. I was scheduled for cashier one night and Lod had me work a green clip, Gstl called me back up and told lod he needed me up on the lanes. That I’m not sales floor today. Lod said that they needed green clips pushed. So gstl said not my problem, give me more then 2 cashiers and I wouldn’t need sales floor and walked away. Lod was he lead too. Tonight I didnt I was scheduled and they call me saying I was supposed to come in. I tell them that I wasn’t and they said I was and if I can come in, I say no cause I’m running a 103 fever with a cough and hr tells me “well then you’re getting written up as a no call no show if you don’t come in” I said I guess I’ll take that no call no show then. He goes “hmm. Fine. Bye”
HEY so you know how they harass us cashiers to get people to take those surveys at the bottom of the receipt? I have found a solution although I don’t know if it’s allowed. just ask the guest if they want their receipt and sometimes they’ll say no, so just keep the receipt, save it for later, and take the survey yourself and give yourself excellent ratings. Anyone know if we can get in trouble for this, or if they have any way of knowing it’s actually us taking the survey and not the actual guests??
fired after 5 1/2 years for not getting one pull done my douche bag team lead who barely ever leaves the office said I wasn’t working hard enough I was busy all day with customers and then when he comes back and says why isn’t this done I said I was busy and I did five of them already I just wasn’t capable of doing that last one and I asked for help but was turned down and then he piled more workand expected me to get it all done in 30 minutes when it would’ve taken anybody else in one hour I mean that’s not the only thing wrong with that place we had rats in the back room and when I tell the LOD they just ignored me so I hate target I will never shop there again and and never to tell anybody to go to target
Target doing it’s usual stinky shit as usual. Owe the government taxes and didn’t pay their rent. oh and owes about 5 billion altogether including vendors/suppliers.
I have worked for target for about 2 1/2 years… I became disillusioned with the place after about 6 months, got grumpy, bitched a bit here and there but just brushed that place off of me when I walked out the door…
I will say that I am rather fortunate by ways of the ETL’s in my store… Yeah target doesn’t train any one for shit and you basically are left to crash and burn but I did and still do have some cool managers that are more than willing to help out… The pay blows for the work I am expected to do all day and that’s shitty but i can pay my bills right now so I guess that’s all that matters…
Is it just me or does Target teach its managers to have NO sense of human interaction, you know how to actually communicate with people? This company just seems to lack overall communication and organization capabilities amongst its leaders. Whenever the ETLs at my store “counsel” people if they don’t get so many red cards in a week, they literally will say “do you have any concerns?” even if you spent 30 min trying to explain to them your concerns which go in one ear and out the other! Also they try to avoid certain topics that “challenge” the stupid shit they say and the dumb rules they try making up because they suck.
Not sure if this deserves a post on it’s own but
According to that link, some canadian tarshit employees are signing the danged thing. God damn it. Fucking stop signing the thing. Idiots finally can escape the hell hole with a hope of collecting EI and getting revenge for all the tarshit employees got screwed over by Tarshit when they got let go to look for a new job in the job market. The idiots treated their employees like shit too. Paid them peanuts as well. Why beg them to stay. Look at as a blessing in disguise. You escaped dumb idiots. Why beg them to stay? Are they the ass suckers who want tarshit to stay? What the hell.
I don’t get it guys. Someone enlighten me. Why are people such gluttons for punishment?
So basically shouting out that team members got red cards is the most annoying thing in my store. Not only is the GSTL annoying, but who honestly cares? Cashiers are supposed to drive red cards and then they get shout outs everytime they get one? They’re getting praised for doing their fucking job. I’m going to start shouting out everytime I finish a CALF.
Where the fuck do I begin? Maybe I’ll start with my worthless ass Team leads who seem to always forget what they told you to do 3 minutes ago? Nah because 2 out of the 6 of them were cool. Maybe I’ll start with my Snitch ass coworkers who loaf all fucking day causing a back jam in work? Nah that’s too easy.. How bout I start with the bullshit reason I got let go? Yeah I’ll start there… Perfect. Grab your Popcorn and juju beez and large beverage for this one.. Little over 3 months ago 2 co workers of mines named Renell 25 and ex-con Terrence 47 (who loves to tell everybody he did 8 years) got into a shouting match almost coming to blows. After a 2 week investigation the 2 workers are back on schedule with a final warning I guess..
