Hello everyone, my name is L I’ve been a employee at target for over 2 years. Even now I wonder how I survived so long but forget about that, let me share my story about 2811. I started as a backroom tm making $10.50 back in 2015 , it wasn’t all that bad. I really loved my job and what I did. Hey I even went above and beyond without being told..until I realized management doesn’t give a shit about you, and to them you’re either a “super human or a machine”.
I work at a Super Target. We typically train a decent amount of team members for other stores in our immediate area because they are smaller and slower. Because of this, we never have hours or options for the people who work solely for our store. We can’t hire help, yet we have to train newbies that get shipped off to their respective stores after a few weeks.
I was hired full time to do a overnight remodel of the Westminster, MD target with the promise that I would be moved the the back room when it’s over. Sure enough as soon as the remodel was done I wasn’t on the schedule anymore. When I asked why they told me that my school schedule was to blame and that they didn’t have a position for me after the remodel. I feel used, I could have gotten a job elsewhere and they hired me under false pretenses. Don’t work for this target. Go to Walmart.
Alright, so I’ve been at Target for almost a year and I’ve observed how my store is ran. It’s like a fucking sorority, but worse. All the TL’s take their breaks at the same time as do the LOD’S and The STL. Which is really fucking annoying.
Literally that is all target cares about. Cashiers kept getting a lot of coaching for not getting enough and at my store they were also threatened with their job if they don’t start getting more. I never liked asking for the guests to apply for one.
I recently had a couple interviews at Target. For my first interview I got there about 15 minutes early and waited 25-30 minutes to meet with the interviewer, but not too bad.
They had me come in for a second interview about 4 hours later. Again, I got there about 15 minutes early. I WAITED OVER AN HOUR FOR SOMEONE TO INTERVIEW ME THE SECOND TIME….. AN HOUR!!!
For about a year now, i have been working at Target. Currently i am a TPS. I was originally hired as a Seasonal team member for Backroom. It was a great opportunity because at the time i really needed a job that worked around my college hours. (still do) I slaved away in the backroom for around 8 or 9 months.
I can’t believe I work at target it’s a living hell. My name is Insert name here and i was a softlines team member but i got switched to hardlines and I thought I would be free and feel relaxed. But as my three months ended I started to feel physically and emotionly drained. I tried to be positive but I can’t anymore.
So bare with me here. I have only worked for Target (team 0613) for only a year now and it has been a literal HELL! At first it was alright, but then by my 4th or 5th month (everything is a blur now thanks to how they schedule me), my LOD and a few others started to badger and treat me unfairly.
Long story short, quit before probationary period ended. Don’t really care about opinions like “if you can’t make it 90 days good luck in the real world!” Well I didn’t go to college and graduate to work retail, so save the comment for someone who cares.
