Waking up at 3 am in -10 degree weather is shit enough. But when there’s no one to let you in the building for 30 mins, that’s not cool. But enough about the start of my first day let’s get into the work of it.
I got a job at Target when I was desperate for a job. I thought it was a good thing when I was hired on the spot. Boy was I wrong. I am an adult with real-world bills like rent, electric, gas, etc. At first I got 40 hours a week working as a cashier. I mentioned before that I had been a bookkeeper, and expressed interest in working the cash office.
I’m a cart attendant and for the last month we’ve been out of of Paper towels and about 2 weeks for toilet paper. Is this a common occurrence for Target stores?
Ok so I know the whole social media trend can get you in trouble but this had nothing to do with target. So I was in a nearby football stadium to where my location sensor on Facebook said Mansfield (location of my target) went to go watch my sisters rotc event. When some lady in a parking lot almost hits me because a she’s on her phone. (Again I’m not at target)
Just incredible, today.
This afternoon I had the misfortune of being put on the spot by the attending middle manager to provide a guest with a CARTWHEEL app mobile phone discount for their purchase using my own mobile phone since they had no phone.
I went to work today at target, showed up, clocked in, than I was taken to talk to. I found out I was fired. This sucks as I’m 75% deaf, so it’s hard to get any job at all. But at the same time I’m relieved of the stress and anxiety that job gave me.
I began working for Target end of October. I took a position through Marketsource and was a new Mobile Team Member for the Target Mobile (now Tech) section.
Training sucked but I got through the online courses and honestly loved the job.
Sometimes I can’t believe it, but I’ve been with Target for nearly 2yrs – No one I was hired with is still there, may I add. My store has such bad turnover, we’re apparently being investigated. And our turnover is rather high; nearly all of my friends that worked there either quit – we’re “fired” -or put in their 2 weeks notice and jumped ship. More are leaving and plan to leave – Like me…
I was recently hired for Seasonal and looked forward to doing something different. I’ve never worked in retail, but heard all the pitfalls about it. However, I needed some extra cash and decided that everything I heard could not possibly be true. Boy was I wrong.
