About to hit a month of being brought on and already feel like I’ve been at this job for a decade. I can’t believe I ever thought this company was any good; their at Wizard of Oz level with making the general public believe their honest and wholesome.
I was actually excited to start work. I thought that for once I was going to be at a job that I enjoyed and how awesome it was going to be able to save money and pay down my debt, go back to school.
I am not a naive person, I consider myself a realist. But I was still smacked upside the head with the level of fuckery at this job. I’ve worked retail for almost 15 years. I been in some real hell holes and again was taken aback.
2 years back I joined Target trying to pay back my student loans. Stupid I know, but I was desperate and I just can’t image myself working in Walmart.
Little did I know working as hardlines/salesfloor would literally DRAIN MY SOUL AWAY. This is my list of what I do on a daily basis:
This is going to be very long story about my experience working at the hell hole call Target. Basically I was hired at Target for 4 years ago I was supposed to be part of the food Truck team. Well to be honest it wasn’t really a team and only consists of me, this dude name Danny, and this old guy named Fred. Like we was all cool with one another but the food trucks are on some morning was has really big and we went to our supervisors and tell them that you know this is too much work for all three of us so instead they never gave us any help and some people would help once they shift it was over and help but for like 30 minutes to an hour but I mean you know that’s at least it was something.
I came to work everyday even Early some times… One I got sick my eyes was swollen so I called 3 hours before my shift no answered the phone so when I went back to work I showed them how many times I called my lod said she put it down as a no call no show when I called a million times… A week later my daughter got sick I left 1 hour early and the next day I didn’t go in because my daughter was still sick take in mind my daughter is 4 years old she my baby she comes first period… When Monday came and I got to work they waited until my 6 hour shift was over to tell me I’m fired… I worked for Walmart missed one day and didn’t get fired… Target is horrible company and I will never work for them again period..
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.
