I just quit Target after I’d been there for only one month and I just quit. i worked at food avenue at the target cafe and it was horrible. i went from 23.5 hours a week to 14.5 one week. i’d been hired to work there on october seventeenth. i had a seasonal job that just ended and i was just looking for a filler because i’m going to starting a brand new REAL job on december first. it has benefits and everything. wow i can’t wait. target really blows. you’d thought you were working for the Pope. this job will cut you off in a heartbeat no matter how loyal you are. i’ll admit i called like out three times and yes that was wrong. that’s probably way the human resources chick messed my schedule up like that.
I was hired in early October. Not once in any interviews did they say anything about me being a seasonal worker. All of my paperwork says Hardlines, Part-Time, stuff like that, yet I am treated as a seasonal employee and constantly reminded about how my time may be limited now that I am working there. What happens if they try to let me go at the end of the season for being a “Seasonal Worker” when that isn’t documented at all? I won’t be too heartbroken if they make me leave but is that even legal? To document me as one kind of worker and then try to say I’m not and get rid of me? What are my options if this happens? Has anyone else had this experience?
NOT looking forward to Black Friday this year! Target is advertising all its deals and all I’m reading is “20% off Fuck your life” and “$199 off We dont value our employees.” I was reading a bunch of articles about employees who have died on Black Friday…..yes ACTUALLY DIED. So not only am I supposed to arrive at 4am after Thanksgiving, but now I’m risking my life????????????????? BULLSHIT. I also saw this website/infographic thing about ALL the incidents that occur on Black Friday. This “holiday” should be banned. SERIOUSLY. Look at this crap: http://www.calera.biz/black-friday-crime-violence-infographic.html
I work in san diego 2232 my store is one of those where everything goes wrong all the time but if theres a visit we are a perfect store, in fact my store is a “model store” but managers there are freakin retarded. Right now they’re hiring a bunch of seasonal people when theres no hours at all. Just yesterday the whole team (flow) was sent back home on a truck day after working 3 hours so after our first break we were all asked to clock out they only kept the same 5 people who stay all the time (kiss-ass people) and it really sucks for some people like me because I only work 9 hours this week 4.5 today and i was supposed to work 4.5 yesterday and i only worked 3 instead… How do they think we can survive working 9 hours a week??!?!
Hey guys, I am a seasonal team member that started recently. I heard that I might end around the end of January but I want to end it at the end of December since I have a new semester with a different schedule. Should I give a two week’s notice two weeks before New Years? Should I just quit when I recieve my paycheck at the end of December? I hope I can survive another month of this intolerable place.
I’ve been at Target for about a month now, and I can already say it sucks and I don’t see it getting any better. Being a cart attendant, I knew I was going to get shit on by the higher ups, however there was one instance where a guest shit his pants and tried to flush the shitty underwear down the toilet, however it did not go down, so after he wiped he proceded to go more on top of the toilet paper wall and shitty underpants. Also, I’m guessing when he was taking off the pants that poo was spilling out the underwear because there was shit all over the floor and on top of the toilet. I was told to clean it up and that’s it. They didn’t give me anything, just a fucking plunger. So I had to scramble to find anything that I think would clean it up and get rid of the smell, along with layers of gloves. Then after it’s all finished and I’m walking back, I get bitched at that there are no carts at the entrances. I’m sorry, I was just in the middle of a bio hazard and it took me a while to clean up. Maybe if you scheduled more than one cart attendant we wouldn’t have this problem.
I just love how Target dares to have an ad advertising Thanksgiving while they are pretty much killing Thanksgiving. This ad in particular has kids pulling a giant golden turkey bone. It’s an old thanksgiving tradition, well not normally a golden or oversized one. I’m surprised since retailers like Target have forced some people to do away with Thanksgiving traditions and follow what is now “Black Thursday” traditions. Thanksgiving is as dead as a turkey.
lol Target is now giving itself until 2015 before deciding to leave Canada. If target does decide to sell back to hbc, then hbc may have hoodwinked Target into giving it a free reno of it’s stores when they sell the leases back.
I only work 20 hours a week at Target because I’m on disability. I’m a cashier who also runs guest service from time to time. I am completely bored with my job position and have wanted to cross-train other areas of the store. In fact, on my last annual review I actually got a negative checkmark because I wasn’t cross trained despite my efforts of trying to be. (another angry story for another time)
well recently I worked for Walmart. So far. I say Walmart is better than target. Will target work a part time e mployee a 12 hr shift. Plus do they allow anyone. To change their avability when needed?
