I am curious if there has been an increase in the anti-union rhetoric at the Stores and the DC’s around the country. When I worked at T-587 every once in a while there would be a mandatory anti-union meeting when the subject ever came up. With the very real threat that Amazon may have a unionized Distribution Center by the end on the month I’m wondering if Target is sweating the same thing happening to them. In my opinion, they should be. Target has been modeling their internal structure after Amazon for two decades. Complete with management structure, employee performance metrics and treatment and an overall employees are infinitely expendable and are to be used up and replaced attitude. They fired me for standing up to it and the news about Amazon has brought back a lot of memories (both good and bad). I hope the Amazon thing plants a seed that grows and grows and grows. Workers are people and deserve to be treated as such – not drones, slaves or machines.
So about a week ago I start my shift in STAT which is what I was hired for I also push all over the store and help fullfillment when needed at my Target and so my SD comes up to me and complains that the zone is never good (I do as much as I can in a 4 hour shift also stat is located at the front of the store a straight dump zone for guests) and goes on my discontinued are the highest and my labels are wrong. She’s up my ass about it (also why tf has nobody ever told me I should be taking care of those isn’t that what the TL and ETLs are for??) we had a corporate visit the next day so she goes on about how it has to be done and when I tell her I don’t think I can push truck, zone to her standards, and repacks for STAT in four hours she looks at me like I’m stupid.
After training at two separate locations it became immediately clear that Target runs a LEAN operational strategy (using the least amount of employees needed & keep those employees just below breaking point everyday). Target management will explain this away as a “live up to the challenge” moment but in reality, it is a consistent case of always filling in and falling behind.
I have so many stories but the one of the stories that sticks out to me is when an old man asked if I was r******d when I was cleaning the restroom then asked me to help buckle up his overalls because he couldn’t reach it. Strangely enough I did it.
Was hired in late November as a part-time fulfillment worker at Target, and was trying to get some money for college. Took an online interview and made it in, was a very simple job description. On the first week was supposed to be trained by three different people on three different days. However was only trained the first day, and the other two days the people that were supposed to train me never showed up.
Hi, I just really need to rant out loud here. I was hired as a seasonal barista, I like my coworkers well enough but it was clear to me from Day One that management was a shit show.
There is no cafe lead, they had a cafe lead but she stopped showing up after a week. Including me, there are only 5 workers, and after this week there will be only 4 (and one of them only works on weekends) everyone does NOT want to work there, the job is easy enough but there’s just NO coverage!! I called out one day because I needed to take a covid test and when I came in the next day I found out my coworker had to work a 13 hr shit bc…NO FUCKING COVERAGE!! No one to switch shifts with, they ignored my preferred hours and scheduled me way too much, it doesn’t make any fucking sense. On my second week, they told my coworker to unload a truck for her shift; so I was alone for 4 hours. Another coworker went without any breaks for the duration of her 7 hr shift and when she told a team lead they just laughed and walked away.
So black friday is here and my target 1415 in Wheaton, Maryland fucked me over. I made the argument to store management that I don’t want to work cashier since 1) I’m not a cashier, 2) I’m not comfortable with it, and 3) I’m taking care of my 78-year-old mother with pulmonary fibrosis, meaning my mom gets the virus she has a 5% chance of recovering. My STL says basically, fuck your mother I need cashiers. Target can suck my balls!
I was hired at Target store 2201 in Ross/Pittsburgh PA before the covid19 pandemic began. A few months later I sadly ended up catching the virus and it took a huge toll on me. I immediately told my store director and the HR department to make them aware. I was informed that due to being understaffed I could face a write up for calling out and until I provided official documentation that says I have the virus and that I still needed to come to work. For the safety of my coworkers and the store customers, I had no choice but to call out. When I spoke to the store director on the phone, he told me I would be fired if I didn’t provide proof / documentation that I had the virus. I then told him that it would take a day or 2 for my doctor to send the results in. The very next day, I got fired. Target expressed no sympathy towards my illness and showed no concern towards the safety of team members and guests, knowingly exposing many. I am not the only person who got canned due to having covid19 in this company or at this store location alone.
Fuck target store 1424 and their shitty management
fuck ka*** fake boujee stuck up bum ass
fuck je*** goomba from mario built ass
fuck kr*** racist stank ass
fuck ja*** fatass
last month i was fired for stealing small items. AP never called the police, just said I have to pay 60 dollars and also be fired. I was fine with that and signed the paper admitting i stole. Today i received letters to pay the 60 dollars and another that says 250.00. I already know not to pay the 250 dollars since that’s how the lawyer scams you. But if I pay the 60 that I agreed to, would they pursue with the 250 since they saw that I paid the 60 dollars. Or should I not pay anything at all.
