I have been at target for almost 2 years and like many loved it….at first. I went from a part time position and was promoted within my first year. I’m normally ok with the unnecessary things target does. But now they have eliminated my position and placed me in softlines which is like retail hell. Not only that but I’ve gone from working early mornings (6am) and being out no later than 2:30 to coming in at 8 and 9 asks leaving in the evenings. I am crushed because this happened so fast. I was Literally told this last week and next week is the big change. I’m also not going to be under my current TL which is terrible because the girl over softlines is not the brightest crayon in the box.
This happened a long time ago, but I had never had the chance to rant about it.
I worked between Hardlines/Cashier mainly for six months, but I did know how to pull freezers for Market and how to work Electronics, and almost everyday I went in to work I felt like complete shit. Regardless of that, I have never called off and was always willing to help any department in the store that needed it, and it sucks that the team leads nor the LODs ever appreciate me or anyone for that matter.
After 5 months of high Redcard performance, always showing up early, and being their cart bitch when they didn’t have one, I received a whopping 16 cent raise.
I was under the impression that getting a lot of redcards was compensated in the form of raises, but I was sorely mistaken. I was expecting at LEAST a quarter. What an insulting raise. Even the Dairy Queen I used to work at gave better raises than this.
I have worked for Target for five years, now.
In that time I have consistently grown in the business. I went from stocking, to setting POGs, to even being a major part of a store remodel.
After this I held a position that had me in charge of produce, which eventually had me leading a team of stockers. In the time I held that position I wondered why I did TL duties, but was considered an average TM. I was told it was for growth. So I bided my time and a year later was given a TL position over another part of the store. Another year passes and I am told that position and its neighboring position are simply being taken off Target’s listings. No longer needed. Where did that leave me?
I’ve been working at target for a year and a half and Im so done ! I started on the flow team , then moved to pog a few months after that and that was a fucking horrible decision. First of all I got thrown in at a really busy time so of course I’m gonna fuck stuff up when im left to figure it out on my own but then get in trouble afterwards even if I ask for help instead of anybody even attempting to show me the right way to do anything.
After four and a half years, I put in my two weeks notice.
It was a good run, some great people, shame it was bogged by bad management.
The feeling of venturing to my new job is unlike anything.
I live in a fairly rich city, so almost all the “guests” are snobby, short, and snippy with me. The other day I had some crazy lady with her screaming baby bite my head just because I was “socializing” with the lady before her while I was ringing her up, you know, doing my JOB.
My roommate and I worked for Target during our move into our new house…we went into HR and did our address change with Mary, a few months later we were cut down to 8 hours a week..so we found better jobs..now Target is holding our w2’s hostage…claims they were mailed to our old address…..bs, either Mary lied then or Target is lying now…either way Target is trying to extort $40 from us for our w2’s..we contacted the IRS and filed complaints…
Long story short… We lost our good hr woman and gained a bitchy girl that doesn’t even pretend to want to do her job.
I’ll call this little bitch Lori lol close enough… Anyway, she started working as our store’s Hr person (not a manager / just hr computer person aka sots there and does nothing) a few months ago and ever since she started shes had a fucking attitude and a resting bitch face.
Got sent home early from work One day after getting in trouble for doing my job.
The owner of this company obviously doesn’t understand, or even know what the concept of the chain of command is.
A person CAN NOT efficiently work for two bosses giving them two different directions.
