    Password Change Request

    This is just getting ridiculous now, where the store system requires you to change your password every so often. While it makes sense that it is to keep things secure, it is very inconvenient that it not only asks you to change your password, but it forces you to do it at the store itself. The entire point of the MyTime app [if you can even call it that] is to be able to do this crap at home. So it recognizes you want to change your password, but it decides ‘Nope, won’t go through’ unless you’re at the store’s backroom to do it.

    Done with red and khaki

    There are better things to complain about if you work for Target, but I just thought I’d mention that I will continue to wear red, and also khaki, but NEVER again will I pair them.  Also, Target taints the color red, and I will never be able to look at it again without thinking of the hellish time I spent there.  Now that I’ve quit, I am going to build a bonfire so that I can burn my uniforms in effigy.

    Finally free of Target!

    After six of the worst months of my life, I am finally free of Target.  Yesterday was my last day.

    I lost my job a year ago, and I took one at Target at my husband’s insistence because we were in a bad place financially.  Although I was grateful for the extra money, the truth was,  I never wanted to work there because I instinctively knew it would be awful.  Where to begin with the awfulness?  I’ll try to be concise.

  • I worked at Target for 6.5years, making 11.82/hr as backroom team member. I never called in, was never late, I came in when I was asked, and stayed after. I even stayed when 5 other backroom members quit. One morning there wasn’t any flats or tubs to do auto fills. So I backstocked, so I could pull items. I had pets left to pull, the flow team was finished unloading the truck (706am). So I went to see if a vehicle was empty so I could use it, well there was, 5, 2 tubes,3 flats. I took one, and then the receiving lady (Jackie b.) Started yelling at me saying I couldn’t take it. I told here I was going to drop it off and bring the tub back. She yells no, then I told her I was. She kept on arguing, so I said “this is stupid” and I walked off. Then I was asked into the office, that’s when lod (casey s.)and HR asked me why I assaulted her by pushing her. I DIDINT DO ANYTHING. HR said they had me on camera, but when I asked to see it, they said they didn’t have to show me. So it was my word against hers. She won cause she’s a bitch. I called 2 attorneys and they said I was fired cause of being there that long and making 11.82/hr, since I wasn’t arrested. Now I work at a worse place called Walmart, sucks. I shows that it doesn’t matter how hard you work, you’ll still get fuucked in the ass.

    Swap Shift

    Hello so this semester of college is getting really tough and I sometimes cannot work days that I’m suppose to work because I have  Big Exam the following day and I sometimes do need a full day off in the weekend so I can study my butt off. Therefore I usually give my hours away to people who want them and my STL got upset because I do it too often and she will count them as Call Outs! I don’t understand the logic in that because Im giving hours away therefor someone will come in regardless…so I don’t see the problem what do you guys think I should do?, because i still have a good half of the semester left and my school is the main priority.

    Target Troubles

    So I’ve been working at Target for almost 2 years now and it has been the most miserable place to work at. I work in electronics but hardly get to stay in my department. Rather than going through the list of issues and problems I’ve dealt with, I will spare you the details because it would be quite lengthy. However, I wanted to post here and see if anyone has any ideas about some survey I had to take. So I’ll start here..

    Wasted 5+ years for nothing

    So I’ve been with Target for a little over 5 years and am currently slowly leaving for a better job.  I used to love working for the company, but the last year has been hell. I’ve been asked 3 times to become a Team Lead for various departments, but when it came time to schedule an interview they made an excuse and then flat out denied to schedule me an interview. After that I’ve been butting heads with my current Team Lead and she’s threaten my job on numerous occasions.

    Soon I will be free

    Put in my two weeks and last day on Oct. 11th! I am so excited! I have been a cashier for over a year. What finally pushed me over was the TLs’ and LODs’ lack of forethought when handling situations.

    Yes, I didn’t take a lunch when I had a 5 hour and 15 min shift. Partially my fault for not being assertive enough to take it anyway. However, the blame should also be on Tarshit for not properly training the guest service chick newly turned GSTL. My hours for that day were listed as 4.75, so the GSTL assumed that it wasn’t considered a 5 hour shift and only scheduled a break, no lunch. I asked if she was sure, and she insisted. What was I supposed to do? I’m timid and going through a lot of shit (being an abuse survivor doesn’t help things either). So of course the next day the LOD and minion TL cornered me in my register to make me sign a paper and treating me like I was stupid.

    Mytime oh no

    Well I work mostly softlines and mytime in general has taken the cake. Now we are supposed to have this “even” coverage on the floor except in any single day there’s no more than 6 of us (sometimes 4) and usually hardlines has double what we have….and for some reason (unrelated) guest service often specifically asks for us for back up??
