So lately my store in particular has been having issues with people quitting, from what I’ve heard over 50 people, including 7 in management positions have quit in the past year and corporate has rightfully been on their asses to find out what’s going on. The solution my store has come up with, rather than improving working conditions, is to harass people into going on a LOA rather than outright quitting, then firing them later when it won’t look so bad for them. Is anyone else’s store doing this? I’m asking because frankly I want to rat on them if it’s just mine doing so.
I’ve been looking at this site for a while now but I’ve never posted anything. I’ve worked at target for half a year, and my husband has worked at the same store location for almost 2 years. More power to him because I’m currently trying to get out of this hell hole. Today pretty much iced my cake though.
I couldn’t wait to quit target to post about it so watch out because it’s a long rant. I started working at the hell hole that is target at around beginning of July and my God was applying here is a giant mistake. I got called and interviewed and started as a cashier as most of us do and as target does best they hounded me and harassed me to get red cards, breathing over my neck, coaching me, role playing, amongst other bullshit and no your little incentive of Starbucks or little bag of goodies doesn’t make me more compelled to get red cards so fuck off.
And I’m soooo excited to be able to breathe again after a whole year of being suffocated by redcards and LODs.
What I thought was going to be a good part time job has turned into a complete nightmare.
from the store and human resources team lead on down to senior team leads is like a big fraternity. Heck even some of the sales associates who have been there or at other retail places will act as if they know everything.
There have been a number of stores that have had sex sounds play over the intercom and its been hilarious. I wish I could see all the upper assholes running around trying to figure out whats going on. My own store had someone yell out racial slurs over the walkies and they still have no idea whats going on. Love to see them confused. I just wish I was working that day to see their faces. Obviously the racial slurs bit is no joke but it is fun to laugh at the management having no idea what to do.
This one is for you, Target T1946.
I should’ve known from the start that working at this Target would be horrible. Let me start off with saying that they don’t pay you nearly enough (yet they give away gift cards like their souls depend on it) to put up with the amount of stuff that they put you through.
Awesome site guys and ladies. And yes I agree with all the former and GOD forbid, current employees who work for Target: worst experience of my life. I finally left that shithole and found a new job. Thank God a better job.
Before getting hired by Target I actually used to have a very positive image of the company, I was excited after getting hired and thought I would like the job despite its bad graveyard hours.
I could not have been more wrong about everything…
first off I have read first 5 pages and these posts are spot on ! No pun intended lol. I especially like honey badgers ( long rant ) post . Amazing! Anywho , on to my question….. I work sales floor (HL) truly do dread this place but who cares it’s just a job I really don’t care if I am there . I’m coming up on my 90 day probation period and I just get a feeling I won’t be kept. I have NOT been disciplined or talked to in any way.
