Target DC hires temps to work seasonal and holidays and pays them $12.00 hr. They can’t get anyone stupid enough to work seasonal fulfillment @ Fridley or Woodbury DC for $15.50 hr. I’ve seen the temps steal stuff and get busted for hiding merchandise around the building.
Let’s take a stand and do what we should be doing. If we are disgruntled with our employer, no longer feeling respected or valued as an employee or as a person, let’s make the effort to find other employ making our lives better while inconveniencing Target.
Went into 4 Vancouver, BC area Targets this week and same problems are continuing to occur despite senior executives insisting in media that notable improvements are happening. There are huge out of stocks in toys, back to school, baby, storage, home and basics.
UPDATE AUG. 29: Target sent News10 a statement regarding this investigation. It has been added to the end of this story.
STOCKTON – Central Valley Target stores have been hit with a credit card security breach, according to information contained in a search warrant affidavit filed by U.S. postal inspectors.
I have worked at Target for a year. It is the worst experience I have ever had. It was my first job and I thought it would be fun. BOY was I wrong.
Last summer, I had a GSA who I won’t name. He and I had a fun relationship as he was younger and I had just turned 18. He asked for my number and I didn’t think anything of it because I had lots of people’s numbers who worked with me. Later that day, I left, and he asked me to stay for his 15 minute break. I figured why not, because again, I had done it before. He asked me to go outside with him. We sat in front of the store and it was too sunny and hot so he asked me to move to the other side of the store. I thought he meant the other side of the front of the store which was in the shade. When he kept going, I asked him what he was doing and he said not to worry. At this point I was scared but as a young girl I did not know what to do.
Management needs to change or be revamped in most of the stores in this district. Shitty managers with shitty personalities most of them being the ones who are old school or been with the company a long long time. Each of the store i have visited have the same issue or concern: no one is happy at the work place hence the consistency in employee turn over. So many managers have already quit most of these stores and for the most part the managers who left are the good ones-the ones with talent and integrity who got fed up and tired of the constant bullshit.
It has been nearly a year now since I began working in Target, and my experience went from being decent to disappointment. This comes in the fact that a number of things happened within the company itself, along the number of ETL’s, LOD’s, and new TL that are causing issues.
When I started working, they had a strong team. We worked and meshed well together, and we are able to get things done. Some of the TM taught me what I need to know to some TL teaching more tricks that will help me out. I was praised, surprisingly, by LOD’s (Yeah two of them I consider them understanding business) and in returned worked hard for them. That was for at least four months.
Suddenly two of those LOD’s were ‘relocated’ (They quit Target) and lost two TL’s in the Hardlines department. When they brought in the new LOD, I learned she was exiled from the store I worked for being incompetent.
ETL went and lost her damn mind – yelling and hollering at everyone during huddle while store was open for customers who were in ear shot to hear. The store I work in where flow team is concerened consists mostly of seniors -the ratio of seniors to young ones is about 75%. Anyhow… this ETL gave the flow team a short and rude speech during the huddle to basically “Speed it up”. Now I understand if we are behind, we need to speed it up however it was the TONE that we didnt like.
I started working for Target at one store in September 2012, where I was hired on as a P Fresh TM, then was let go shortly before Christmas (apparently I was a seasonal hire, which nobody ever told me). I spent 3 months looking for another job, then the following March reapplied at Target. I was hired on at a different store for 75 cents less than I was paid before, but by this point I was so desperate for work I accepted. I figured I would work there until I could find something in my field of expertise (I have a background in administrative assisting, particularly real estate), then leave.
Fast forward a year and a half. This store…is a clusterfuck.
I’m a newbie to this website and need to vent and/or mostly share with you all my thoughts on quitting. I am totally over this company. As a flow team member, we lift, we clean, we zone, we help guests, and after all is said and done we are the ones who do things wrong. Anyway, first off, I’m tired (literally) of bending over (literally) backwards for a shit company that pays me a quarter over minimum wage $9.25 for what we do for the store.
I’m a small lady who has to deal with the furniture pallet off the line, no help, no team lift, just a hey! That goes on that pallet right there…
