So I started working here a little over a month ago. When I first started with training, I had known something seemed rather odd as I had been scheduled for night shift and on the weekend, though I figured it was just random scheduling and wouldn’t be too often. I was dearly wrong. I must start off first by saying I do really enjoy the people whom I work with and with most of my leaders and management. The only and main thing I have a problem with is that I feel there is the Guest Service’s Team Leader is trying to get me for some reason.
I’ve spent a year working at target. Everything was fine at first, and everyone and everything seemed okay. Up until mid november or so.. We had 3 people in electronics quit at once, and there were only two people working that entire week total. Some days we didn’t have openers, and some days we didn’t have closers, and sometimes both. So, one day I’m coming into work, and there are 5 huge pulls that haven’t been worked, the entire electronics area is a disaster, and zone is an absolute mess.
Just found this site after closing tonight and thought I’d rant a little. I work on softlines and I’ve been there a little over a year. I’m lucky enough that my Lods ect. leader type people are all really nice and so are my co-workers which is why I’ve stayed so long.
So we begin my job at target approximately three months ago. I begin my job with little training which was okay because cart attending seemed like a rather laid back job. This was completely and udderly wrong. The first two weeks were a piece of cake and seemed almost in a way fun. This is immeadiatly when I began having issues. Mid day one day I was informed of a “mess” in the woman’s restroom.
My last two weeks at Target were terrible. I was told I was the best cart attendant they ever had. I have a panic disorder and a few other disabilities. Anyway after a meeting with an LOD who I never did anything wrong to, but still had been trying to destroy my life and had been warned for it crossed the line.
I worked for target for 8 months.
it was by far the worst job I’ve ever had.
I’ll just leave some examples here. I’m not even going to start in on how the employees invaded my personal space, lectured me like a child, insulted me and how the LOD stuck her fat ass nose in my life by sending a cop to my house!
I’ve been looking through the posts here for a while and it’s time I got some of my own anger out. I work in soft-lines at a smaller store and when I began I thought it was an okay job. I knew it wasn’t going to be great because hey, its a retail. I’ve worked there for almost a year now and it’s gotten progressively worse and I don’t think it’s gonna get better any time soon.
DO YOU AGREE? ALL THE HARD WORK FOR GETTING RED CARDS IS NOT WORTH THE SHITTY RAISES THAT TARGET GIVES US EACH YEAR . I BELIEVE THE ONLY PERSON IN THE STORE WHO BENEFITS IS THE STORE TEAM LEADER. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN CASHIERS WERE ONLY TO ASK GUESTS ABOUT THE RED CARD ONLY IF PROMPTED ON THE REGISTER BUT NOW THEY HAVE TO HARASS/ASK GUESTS EVERY SINGLE TIME.
You know I found this site after they called me for the interview. I wanted to know what is like being cart attendant. I read some stories and I said to myself “Ehh it won’t happen to me” and boy I was wrong. They hire me in March of this year and I want to get out already. Wow where to start???
1. The freaking LOD and GSTL think you’re a slave and they could talk to you as if you were crap. One time one of them said something disrespectful that I just rolled my eyes. I don’t like being treated as crap. Even some of your fellow team members think they are your leader.
I don’t think I can stress enough the fact of how tired I am of damn red cards!! And how management makes its their business to make u feel like your not doing your job if u don’t get a guest to apply for one!! Every week I’m pulled aside to go over my numbers for the previous week….NOW!!! If today I get 2 red cards I’m patted on my back and told good job!!! NOW if tomorrow I get 2 more the same kind of reconignition is given I might even get a prize (whoopi damn do fuck a free lunch give me some days off with pay fuck outta here!)…but if those are my only two for the week…I’m told that’s not good enough and I need to do better…am I the only person who sees something wrong with this??? Then I’m pulled aside occasionally to tell the GSTL about an amazing guest experience…
