I’m on mobile, so sorry for formatting (if that even applies?)
I started working in target back about 3 months ago. This job was not intended to be permanent. AT ALL. I was applying for government jobs and by the grace of all that is holy finally got an interview and a job. I went to put in my two weeks today and my LOD told me she wanted to “check the schedule” two weeks ahead. At this point I’m confused but I let her check it. She then informs me that I work a Saturday that’s 2 weeks and one day from now. Confused again, I say “Ok, and?” She says I cannot quit because the schedule is already written, but not posted.
Lets start from the beginning, shall we?
So I started working at Target 1516 of July of 2018 in Softlines. At first it was great; I made a decent amount of friends, the management was laid back and I was getting above minimum wage. I left for LOA in September for school and returned for Black Friday. Even though I’m softlines, they put me on register all day because they “double scheduled” me. It was my third time working register and the experience was awful. That should’ve been the first warning sign.
I found this place some time ago, only to continue to stay at Target to suffer at the hands of many team leads as they came and then were gone. And now, it is time to share my experience. I hope all who read this and feel the same way, get out before they use every little slip-up and excuse to get rid of you.
So, after having worked at this hell hole for about 6 years, I was finally terminated at the hands of those who wanted me gone. Fuck all that bullshit I had to put up with all those years.
So I have about 2 weeks left of my probation period and things are going downhill. They seem to be getting on to me about everything, more than anyone else. Some of the other team members are noticing and they are starting feel bad/concerned for me.
It was weird because before they started getting onto me the LODs were acting all overly nice to me. Now, they seem to get onto me about every little thing and give me numerous tasks that I can’t finish in time. Apparently these weeks are the busiest weeks for the store so maybe that has something to do with it.
Hello again. I am 24 years old, and hate the fuck out of tarshit. I worked at the store T1175, in Fairfeild New Jersey. May I tell you something, if you hate shopping at Target, well then, YOU’RE GOING TO HATE TARGET EVEN MORE, IF YOU’RE WORKING THERE!!!
First I would like to say I’ve read at least a hundred stories on here and comparatively my target is the “best”. My team is probably what helped me stay as long as I did. I’ve got to know almost everyone in the store. My old STL was so chill and great. But Tarshit fires the hard workers and replaces them with ass kissers who are assholes.
Hello all! Newish cashier here. Things have been stressful since I started but have been able to deal with it. Very limited training, bad training, and throwing me to the wolves way too early on cashier. However we have a loss prevention guy who has an attitude and started to talk down to me when I first started. Are loss prevention leads considered supervisors? This guy got on my case the first week on cashier duties and passively aggressively accused me of being on my phone. I am old school and hate my cell phone so never on it at work. I had to take a few weeks off for a very bad family emergency but returning and wondering what at the best ways to handle these strong personalities? Do I stand my ground and let them know I don’t take crap? Will that get me in trouble if I do it in a nice way? Do I just need to take his bullshit and try not to let it get to me?
In March of 2017 I officially became an employee of Target corporation in an unspecified location within FL with my tenure ultimately coming to a conclusion in July of 2017 as I was specifically hired a seasonal where I would rotate between working on the floor and registers you see.
How is Modernization working for you? Are you getting your push done, go backs put away, price change done, keeping fitting room free of go backs? I think, Target is expecting 1 person to do the work of 3 people. District is expecting all push done on a daily basis, all tables folded perfecting all day long, fitting room free of go backs. There is no understanding from District in why we can get everything done. How can an employee keep the floor zoned up when 1 Guest unfolds almost every shirt on a table? I wish Corporate and District worked in stores.
As a former employee I can tell you right now what the problem is based upon pictures and news. When I worked at target they had windows xp in 2009. Later on in 2014 they finally upgraded to Windows 7. I’m thinking that registers refused to work because microsoft kept sending Windows 7 will end support on January 4th 2020. So yeah, because target is so far behind on windows, that’s the biggest reason why there register systems didn’t work. So target, upgrade to windows 10 already! Get your IT guys in the server rooms stat!
