So Target was warned two months in advance that there might be a possible breach into their point of sales systems but they simply brushed the warnings aside and now this breach is currently estimated to cost them over 400 million dollars. I wonder if the company will ever bounce back from this traumatic experience. So many law suits! They have since downsized in cutting back positions both worldwide and in the U.S. Local stores. Stores have until September to get to head count so etl’s and team leaders whose positions will no longer be relevant will have until September to get new jobs or perhaps transfer to another store in a different available position. NO severance pay is given to such. Through out our district, people are leaving the company regardless, STL’s included. More >
I am very confused target leadership. Since day one, over a year ago, we heard from the leadership how we are target Canada, we have a head office in Mississauga, and are not just an extension of target USA. More >
Well, I’m not exactly sure how to put this, but I happened upon a news article about Target Canada. Headline stated target lost nearly 1 billion since the March open of last year. I was on my break when I saw the article.
Alright, so I left the University for a year to find some work and get some real-world job experience. I applied to a bunch of different places and Target ended up contacting me for an interview. The world’s most evil LOD loved me during the interview, as such I was hired directly to guest services, which surprised me as I thought I would be stuck cashiering. For the first day of training, it was wonderful. Then it all turned to shit. More >
I have had so many jobs in my life, but target is the worst fucking job I have ever had in my life, i wish they closed all targets in the world, the most fucking ridiculous job i have ever had in my life, the team leaders are fucking bitches who think they are the shit, they schedule one person to do everything and get everything done on like 4 hours, they never used to send me on my breaks, i went like 2 months without ever getting my 15 minute break because they only scheduled one fucking person and said nobody could cover for me fucking, management is horrible and scheduling is horrible, there is no relashionships with team leads and regular employees, and its all based on preference on who kisses the most ass gets the most hours. target is a horrible horrible place to work at. it was the worst mistake i ever did in my life applying to target. all TEAM LEADS ARE FAKE AS HELL, they will smie at who they want to then turn their back and yell at you….

I posted in this forum not too long ago, but after 4 years of working at corporate misery, I finally put in my 2 week notice. The way Target treats their employees is unreal. I got scheduled at the oddest hours. I might be 3-10pm one night and then scheduled to work 4am the next morning, since it’s not at least 8 hrs in between. I would either get off at 8pm or start the next day at 6am. I always got coached over something petty. Everytime my leader came around I would get annoyed, but still nervous because I knew she was going to say I did something wrong. I’ve worked every position in the store except AP, Starbucks, and SFT. After 4 years I now only make 9.44 an hr in California. They talked down on me, Gave me unrealistic expectations and was never given recognition for actually finishing those tasks 100%. Instead I get a lecture on something else that wasn’t done their way.
Well people. It just happened. I was fired and I am innocent. So come around a read my story.
One specific day, I had a cashier shift. I hate it very much because it feels like I am on acid. Anyway, I like to make jokes with the guest, having fun with it and making them smile. One specefic guest is in my lane and asks me if the survey is real? To remind you, the survey is that last part on the receipt where you have a chance to win a $1500 gift card. I said to the guest, ‘Honestly, I’m not so certain, but I do remember overhearing that someone did win it. They leave. I turn around to ask a quick question to my coworker and say, ‘Are the surveys real?’ I had all intentions to ask a return to my job. These two guest were the rudest people in the line. The female told me in a rude manner, ‘can you just ring me up?’ I do my job. More >
Alright, so there was a company I decided to go over to. This place payed so much better. But the people. They were far worse than Target employees. I’m talking standing around for all breaks and lunches calling each other “faggots” and describing penis. That was so obnoxious I couldn’t take it anymore. Now with not many options (applying at 60+ places and calling, no call backs despite promises) I applied at Target once again. I just got a rejection letter from those bastards. Me. I’ve been working for this company for a long damn time and they reject me? Now I suppose my vacation periods stand out, because I tend to submit two weeks notice before taking months off at a time. Standard vacation requires a year and the time is small. Add that to the fact my grandmother died and inheritance + policy is something I can relax on for awhile. Not forever. I need work.
I don’t just hate Target. I hate this city.
