    Cried for the first time at a job

    So I thought this was a job where we’re all adults just working for a paycheck but APPARENTLY its high school all over again. Actually, I didn’t even have this much drama in high school. So a GSTL calls me into her office this morning all cheerful and I’m thinking oh it’s about scheduling or training or being two minutes late or some bullshit. She makes me wait for her to get off the phone. Then goes “so I’ve recieved some negative feedback from other team members about you which I was surprised to hear.” I was devastated. The only thing I like about my job are the people I work with.

  • So I have an interview at target today for a seasonal job. After reading everything on here I’m not sure if I should go. I only want 20 hours Cuz I have a 3 month old and it’s hard to find a baby sitter. Will they give me that or do they just schedule any hours? I don’t plan on staying after the holidays. I just need some extra money. Should I go for it? I nervous that they will gives hours I can’t work.

    My honest experience

    I am pouring this from my heart. I started off as a naive worker WILLING and happily able to work, follow directions, and cooperate. That being said, I have put in SO SO much work throughout the years that I almost cry in retrospect at how ungrateful managment, co workers, and target as a corporation in general has “thanked” me for my years of service.

    Just to give you an idea, I once willingly stayed THREE hours past my shift, just to finish setting a pog and literally perfecting it. My work ethics drove me to do such things, including being the DOOR GREETER (yes, during the holidays, our store would¬†pick certain people to become door greeters; most employees threw a hissy fit and thus were exempt, but I decided to follow the “fast fun and friendly” ideal and accept (like I said I was very naive). I was always flexible towards any assignment given to me, or asked of me, or anything that needed to be done, I was always with the mindset of ” I have to finish this, I cannot go home until i do”

    Fuck Target

    There’s so many reasons why I have started to hate Target.. They stress you out, work you like a slave, complain about payroll so fucking much that it’s nauseating, have unrealistic expections, make one person preform a 3 person job then preceed to question why it’s not done in their unrealistic timeframe. This is literally the first job where I have cried while at work and where I have gone to work while not feeling well then feel like I should have called out because of how shitty they made me feel. Last week I called out once cause I was sick and sadly still am then Friday I still was feeling shitty but still went in cause I didn’t want to make anyone’s day harder since they’d have to do my workload which is stocking electronics and backstocking which by the way is shit cause flow team at my store make one person stock and backstock but they say two people are doing it yet the other person has to leave at 8 so I call BULLSHIT.

    Rant about Target.

    I’ve worked at tagert since april 4th 2013, about a year and a half now and ive dealth with many issues such as injuring my back and being forced to fill out a report before theyd finally call me an ambulance. I finally was able to switch to a flow team position due to my team lead not liking me for personal reasons outside of work. I was happy as flow until our team trainer left for another job and the guy who took over became overbearing. Our team lead wanted a few people doing the food truck and him and i were two of those people. The team trainer began to make comments about his penis and me ‘handling meat.’ I went to my team lead and nothing was done, so i went to the logistics and backroom team leads and again nothing was done. my hour have been cut and i have been forced to leave the food truck so he still can. My HR told me because I didn’t want to outright get another person fired that he would not be punished. I am tired of dealing with this and nothing being done.

  • Is it extreme to reference a piece of scripture that is generally quoted at funerals to describe my feelings over finally being done working at Target? Perhaps. But I view the year of my life that I dedicated to bagging the groceries of harried soccer moms and forcing red cards upon unsuspecting Target patrons as a sort of extended near-death experience.

    Lying Tarshits…

    I worked at Target for three months as a PART TIME CASHIER. Everything was going fine until they called me into the back and told me that tomorrow was my last day because I’m SEASONAL.

    Are you fucking kidding me right now? I have a damn paper that says part time on it!

    And what the hell season was I hired for three months? It was fucking August!

    If I wasn’t meeting your high standards, just tell me instead of bullshitting, thanks assholes.

  • So I recently got hired at target and it only took me 2 days to hate my job. I want to quit asap but don’t even know who to go to because no one has taught me shit around here. I’ve only been working at target for two weeks but to be exact, I’ve only been working there for about 9 days total and they already expect me to know everything. The training sucked and they themselves don’t know a lot about the stuff that goes on in target. The “team leaders” are full of shit and LODs… oh god I don’t even want to get started on those people. Rude, plain rude and disrespectful. I want to quit asap so if anyone has any advice please help me! I’ve had it with target and I’m just so fucking sick of it. Fuck you target.

    Looking Elsewhere

    ¬†What I dont respect about Target is there nonchalant care for their employees. Ive worked at Target for about 7 months and was OKAY with it at first. I mean this isnt my first go-around in retail, so i knew what to expect from department stores. But recently things have went “stupid dumb” in my store.

    I wont say what store or position I am, because you never know. There are lurkers everywhere. Anyway, a new “Team member” was hired in my department – we clicked, talked about the happenings. Until she outright abuse the fact that i would cover her hours because I had bills to pay. When I asked her to cover one of my shifts, she immediately dismissed me. So I will not cover anyones shift ever. I will never fill in for a call out. They have to work with the fuck they were left with.

  • So I didn’t work at target, HOWEVER, I wasted almost 7 hours out of my day at one of their interviews and was mislead and LIED TO by 3 different employees about being hired, and I’ve absolutely had it. So here’s the deal:


    I need a job, saw Target was hiring, and applied. Got called in for an interview. I did one interview, was asked to sit and wait for a second one (along with about 50 other people, mind you.) I said fine. So 45 minutes passed, and I’m still waiting for the 2nd interview. Pissed, I finally ask someone, who says “oh, they’ll be right with you.” BS. I waited yet another HOUR, and finally some super snotty lady took me back.
