I’ve been working as Plano TM for 14 years. Two things keep me here : I love what I’m doing and need medical insurance. Not the lazy ETL’s , HR who cannot answer ANY questions (“here is the number for TMSC”) or STL who behaves like 13 year old (“we do not have the crayons in stock, but we can ship them to your house”).
So, I’ve been working at Target for about 10 months now and have to say it has been a roller coaster of emotions. Sometimes I love working there, sometimes I want to mow down everyone with an AK-47. It’s a bitter-sweet job to say the least. I will say however, that I’m EXTREMELY lucky that I didn’t apply for a cashier position because of what I’m about to tell you.
Half of my store knows my STL as Lord Farquaad and I personally like to call the backroom ETL Four Feet of Fury.

About two months ago, I was hired as a cashier. I was really desperate to leave my old job at the time and target was in fact offering me slightly more money than my old job. Everything seemed great at first. I had five years of cashier experience under my belt and assumed it would be a fairly easy and enjoyable job. I was wrong. I had no idea about the red cards. I knew about them as a target shopper, but didn’t know how much they were really pushed. My first two weeks were great. I didn’t even know about selling red cards until my third or fourth shift when they finally told me to start asking people.
Well, it’s been one month since I had a stroke on the register. And let me tell you, I’m not the only one. In six months, there has been one other person without history of strokes who had a stroke. I’m seriously thinking of starting an investigation in my store. Does anyone agree with this?
Plus, I went into the store, and they spoke to me like I was fired. It was all, come in and shop once in a while, and we’ll miss you. I don’t like it…
So my i got a job at target as cashier about 3 months back. I regret everyday not listening to my friends about retail being a shit occupation. I was ignorant, but, I was looking for a silver linning from my last job (subway). Keep in mind im only 17.
OMG I can’t believe this. So on one aisle of frozen on the sales floor the freezers are leaking from the bottom. Now I didn’t know this until this moment happens.
I’m walking back from my break when I walk past the aisle I mentioned above and this lady stops me and asks me to follow her. She tells me the floor is wet and her son had just slipped on it.
I was a little late on posting but past 4th of July my shift was cut. So that same day I made plans to go hang out with the family somewhere. So I’m woken up by a phone call from my target and the call to my suprise is them asking me to come in. OMG I was laughing so hard on the phone that I had to hold back. So when I cake to my senses I told them I can’t because I’ve made other plans since I was informed the night prior my shift had been cut. So she says that’s fine enjoy your day and we hang up.
Did anyone else have their ETL’s or TL’s spy on the cashiers?
I couldn’t make this sh*t up. As a GSA, I’d literally get called up to the offices (ours over-looked our front-end cashier team). And low and behold, an ETL or TL would be sitting in a dark office, call you in – and ask you what’s going on…spying on the cashiers as if they were Shia LaBeouf in, “Disturbia.”
