I applied to target about a month ago, and was hired two weeks ago. Last week was my first two days being trained as a Flow Team Member. I was super excited as I have worked in retail before, and couldn’t wait to be on the other side of the walls. Plus, I actually like to organize things and make them look better.
Dear people who come to stores at closing time,
DO NOT COME TO THE STORE AT CLOSING TIME (also goes for restaurants)
So here’s the story. It was my first night ever closing fucking tarshit and its 9:49pm and you know we do that lil “please come to the front we’re about to close” thing.
I was hired in april for starbucks, applied to be a cashier (both fucking suck at starbucks cant keep a teamlead cause target also fucking sucks in general) they wrongfully terminated me over a giftcard they think i stole.
i started at Target when my son was 3 months old. I was still breastfeeding him, so I would need a private place to pump on my breaks. My ETL was a very supportive man, with a child himself, and let me use his office.
Because not many of us “volunteer” to recognize other people. One of the piece of shit TL has decided to call on people to give recognition. I was called on recently, tried to recognize someone who wasn’t here and was poked fun at for it.
So due to the canada failure and this Transgender policy its obvious target is cutting everything to get some money back. Being a TL I usually write schedules for my team, putting this years hours per week compared to last year its pretty obvious whats going on.
About a week or so ago I was bowling out the boxes when I saw an envelope on the ground. I thought it was more garbage people decided to just leave on the ground so I picked it up and looked into it (since it was in the detergent aisle I was afraid of stepping on it and ending up flying through the air with some stupidly heavy detergent boxes or something, all I need is a broken rib or back) and I realized it was a check for bonton, had no idea they still existed, and what looked like a bill for the same place probably. I think it was some small denomination around $50 bucks. I looked at it a couple times thinking I was reading it wrong because I was honestly shocked at how reckless someone could be by just losing their personal financial data on the floor of a retail store.
I started working at Target in September as a cashier and it seemed great at first. Had great coworkers and management who knew and understood that this was a weekend job while I was at college. About 2 months I started noticing signs of stress and fatigue. That I no longer enjoyed coming in and that mangers would stress about the littlest of things. That some things that weren’t cleaned weren’t perfect and that we weren’t selling enough red cards. I thought whatever because I was consistent on sales, speed and guest experience surveys. Eventually it became all about redcards. That the guest nor their experience rarely mattered as long as there was red card sell.
Our new STL who hasn’t even been at our store for a month has decided to completely cut out the mid-shifts for Food Ave, Guest Service, Operator, and GSA. Hours have been drastically cut, very little full shifts and instead a bunch of half-shifts Why? Who the fuck knows, I’m pretty sure our store was performing well but apparently not?
Can anyone else on here relate to this,?
I got a new job, put in my two weeks, and this beloved company found a reason to fire me two days before my last day!!??
