Red card madness
So my i got a job at target as cashier about 3 months back. I regret everyday not listening to my friends about retail being a shit occupation. I was ignorant, but, I was looking for a silver linning from my last job (subway). Keep in mind im only 17.
Firs off, target is petty about their red cards…… Real bad my GSTL told me word for word, “You need to guilt our older and forigen guest into getting a red card.” I just smiled and nodded but in my head I know thats morally wrong.
What pisses me off the most is my whole employee review isnt based on how I do the job I apllied for, its based how I sell red cards. I know many times i’ve gone far out of my way to help a guest find something, even help an eldery woman find something online using my phone, and helping a crippled man by taking his grocerys to his car for him. I know good deeds can go unoticed but really they are basing my work habit off a stupid piece of plastic to gain “loyalty” when it just scares people away.
I feel the guest that have came through my lane tell me more about how good im doing then my supervisors. Any word i hear from,my GSTL is, “Have you got a red today?” Or “keep asking all our guest about thay awesome 5%.” Like I already forgot the first 20 times you mentioned it.
I really want to move to the sales floor because I know,im the type of person that loves offering a helping hand to guesy. My LOD won’t move me because I havent sold enough red cards and had to be in the green for two weeks. So i buckeld down sold there red cards its been a month and she hasnt kept her promise. Any longer and they can kiss my ass goodbye and I can go to guitar center, instead.
