So bare with me here. I have only worked for Target (team 0613) for only a year now and it has been a literal HELL! At first it was alright, but then by my 4th or 5th month (everything is a blur now thanks to how they schedule me), my LOD and a few others started to badger and treat me unfairly.

Long story short, quit before probationary period ended. Don’t really care about opinions like “if you can’t make it 90 days good luck in the real world!” Well I didn’t go to college and graduate to work retail, so save the comment for someone who cares.
Back on here ranting again. I moved in with some roommates in order to be closer to school, so I couldn’t afford to stay at the store I was working at, so I transferred to a different target location since it was closer. Two months later the location I’m working at sucks (mainly the GSA’s/guests/hours are the reason). There is also the reason that I was promised to get a higher staff position but that never happened either.
As Cart Attendant, one of my responsibilities is to do carry-outs. So if a Guest is too weak to lift something, or if the item is large/heavy and is brought up to the checkout lanes on a flatbed, it is my duty to assist the Guest in getting the items in his/her car. Ok. No problem.
I was reluctant to write this but I figured if I could deter even one person from working at Target as cart attendant then I have succeeded.
I started working for target about 2 years ago,(quit just before my 2 years) took the job because I figured I could use some money and experience since it was my first job. The hiring process took about 2 weeks which wasn’t too bad. Although I have heard from several people that the hiring process took at least a month.
Target’s management has done a lot of unfair, shady shit to me, but this one takes the cake.
There was this GSA at my store who was always such a hawk about the redcards. Asked us every 5 minutes if we had gotten a RedCard, always singled people out who hadn’t gotten one yet, stuff like that. Well, recently, our GSTL quit and she got the promotiom.
Okay so long story short I plan on quitting Target, even though I’ve only worked there for about a month. I’ve run into multiple issues with our HR guy and he’s genuinely just an asshole and just makes me dread going to work every time I’m scheduled and berates me every time I do go for not knowing what to do, even though nobody has made an effort to train me.
I work as a Cart Attendant, and I’m normally scheduled for the closing shift (4:30-10, sometimes 4:30-11). I’ve spent a lot of time reading posts by other Cart Attendants and the common theme is that they are all ridiculously overworked and berated by their LOD’s for not getting everything done on time. I’m kind of going through the opposite situation, and need advice. I’m bored out of my mind. Every. Single. Day.
I’ve been working as a Cart Attendant at Target for the summer. It’s been pretty good, but today I had the misfortune of working under a very grouchy GSTL who verbally berated me for the silliest, most immature reason you could ever possibly think of. Here’s what happened.
