I got fired for causing a shortage to the drawer. On Black Friday I added all the coupons up that the lady had and just put it in all together since everyone was in a rush and I felt panicky. So now I owe target $5.12 and some lady wanted the coupons that were on cartwheel so I rang it up for her on my phone and accidentally forgot to remove my team member discount so they thought I was trying to give her my discount. Shouldn’t that have been a warning? How exactly do I pay that? They said I would be getting a letter in the mail but it’s been like 3 weeks now. And is anyone else having this happen, when I use my team member discount online it still works?
Perhaps the most popular retail corporate like Tarshit should know how to treat it employees fare and equal also with its bullshit ethics that supposedly it stands by.
Let’s go back two years ago when Tarshit had to pay 2.8 million dollars to EEOC for a settlement of the discrimination towards people with disability. That’s right that is how this sleazy corporate got by paying such small amount of money. For many of us is a big amount of money but not for a damn corporate like this n the lawsuit should’ve asked for more. Just google Target 2.8 million EEOC and you’ll be surprised.
Unlike most I don’t hate Target, however I wouldn’t call myself a fan. I started working in electronics as a seasonal employee in October. I initially enjoyed the job because it pays well for retail and my co-workers were nice. I learned quickly and everyone was happy with my work ethic and ability to perform including the gstl and lods. I didn’t like zoning only to have a customer come through the same isle I just cleaned. My favorite parts of the job were interacting with guests and backstocking. I definitely didn’t enjoy other tasks I had to do throughout the day, however it was a job. Point being I liked the job overall, but couldn’t handle too much “Target time” before I would be lifeless.
Schedules for the week of December 31st to January 6th were released today and my name was nowhere to be found on it. I guess I should have expected an outcome like this. Everyone at that store was always very childish and loved to gossip behind the backs of others. Target was my first job and it sucks to do your absolute best and not even be considered for a permanent position. I was naïve to think that this job would be fun.
Okay so today I had a Fitting Room shift and it was the usual hell. Mind you our LOD now won’t allow us to reshop, zone, or move past our square. (People steal, but manger took our clothes counters away so it’s “our” fault people walk away with merch…… right) The only thing we can do is escort guest into rooms. My Team Lead basically told us to follow it to a t and if guest have problems complain to the manager and basically she hopes a ton of people complain. Love her so much.
I opened a Target account with TD bank when I used to work for Target. I was a Store Team Leader for 4 years. I kept the account open when I resigned to keep the 5% discount and occasional perks.
since opening the card in 2011 I had always had problems with online bill pay. I was constantly locked out of the website.
A little of background info from myself: I’m a fast person. I fall easily under their petty category of “working with a sense of urgency”, I also happen to be a very outgoing person: so helping out guests and coming to even help a rude customers comes to some years in experience with restaurants in the past. My brother happens to be working for this horrible company for around 5 years and was the one that gave me a hand to have a head-start in it, and lastly I happened to leave another shitty hole (Hollister) to fall under a worst one, naively thinking i was actually getting somewhere better.
So, I quit working at Target over a year ago. I was primarily sales floor but got cross-trained in every other area except backroom. As soon as I quit Target, I began dating a guy I knew on flow team. It’s been over a year since we began dating and he’s still slaving away at Target. He’s been there for over 2 years now and has really only done logistics.
Before I get started here’s some background on myself. I’m a very loyal employee. I don’t just quit, I always give notice. I have always worked at a place longer than 3 years. Not Target though. See, I got hired and at orientation they bragged about the atmosphere of Target being a great place to work. Now being in retail for 11+ years I should’ve know what a farce that was, but I digress. I have never seen such awful management.
So I am the type of person that gives everyone a chance. I mean everybody is entitled to a bad day and I just don’t base opinions on rumors and first impressions. But my God.
I worked at Target for a short stint a few years back. Got hired while I was on summer break from college, but I made sure to tell them multiple times that my open avalibility would only last untill school started up, I went so far as to submit my schedule over a month in advance.
