I was in the break room eating my lunch with the logistics team, when my ETL brought in a visitor to talk to us. He was a man representing Untied Way. If you can’t pay your rent, or make enough to eat, this organization will help you do so. Not a single person in the room makes enough to put food on the table. He informed us that if we needed help, please come visit their head quarters in town. United Way is aware that most of us are going hungry. The worst part, Target knows, and has authorized United Way to come into their stores to compensate for the low wages and poor hours.
I’m the kind of person that almost never gets sick. In the less than 3 months I’ve been working at Target I’ve been sick 3 times, which is normally how often I get sick in a YEAR! Even worse than the attitudes are the illnesses and germs our “guests” bring through our lanes.
I never thought I’d end up here, since I thought my Target was such an awesome store and different from the rest. After being there almost 3 months, I learned I was horribly mistaken. Where do I even begin.
I’m moving to Hawaii from California and I would like to know if my pay is going to change? I make a dollar and 50 over minimum wage in California which is $12. I need to fill out important tax and such information and neef to know if my wages will change when I move?
- The level of unprofessionalism and disrespect doesnt even brush the surface of being human.
Oct. 2016- hired as GSA…had my doubts but needed a job. Lesson Learned.
Bathroom Break- soon as I clocked in for my shift. all mgt. Waiting at Starbucks for their drinks before a mtg. HEY…GET OVER THERE HELP THEM OUT. yells at me…
I was scheduled 6-2:30 in shipping. As usual, we had no orders. They keep saying we’re getting 800+ orders, etc but it never happens. I have been in this department since Oct 31, 2016.
So 8:00 rolls around, and we are DONE. Nothing to pick, nothing to pack, and 4 people scheduled for the majority of the day. I know what is coming…they will come “steal us” and put us in Flow, or on the floor.
When I first started working at target in 2012 I was a college freshman trying to make a little bit of extra money for payments. At first I couldn’t believe my luck I made a lot of new friends and all of management really seemed to take a general liking to me. This was most likely because at the time I was getting multiple red cards a day. Slowly though they started realizing that at some moments throughout my shift I could be seen at electronics talking to a friend or while up at the service desk I would make a joke.
So one day I come into work in the afternoon and I am told to zone toys, which is a little odd since that’s usually what we do on closing shifts. So I’m zoning toys and there are a lot of team members around me, some I don’t recognize. Eventually someone comes over to me and tells me there are people here from other stores to help us get back into shape from the Black Friday disaster, and they say the DTL is here too.
I should’ve known from the getgo that this place was a shithole. I was able to rock my interview after a night of battling a stomach bug and having 0 nutrients in my body, I felt like complete shit. But nonetheless, I was hired.
Hey all! New member here. I started back in October as a backroom team member. Prior to my first day, I came across this site. After reading all the posts I thought to myself, “these people are nothing but whiney bitches. They probably just don’t want to work.” Fast forward a couple weeks. I have never been so wrong.
