I started Target as a cashier in the year 2014. It’s 2017 and till this day I regret hitting that srupid “Cashier ” button. #1 when I started my GSTL was a huge assshole I just sucked it up cause I needed my job.
Before I even clocked in, my Team Lead pulled me into the HR office with one of the other LODs and decided to tell me I did not pass probation.
Its funny, they said I took too long on breaks too much and that I “argued with some of the managers”. If you wanted to see me argue I would have had some pretty colorful language. I was only politely trying to explain where I was coming from the two times I was supposedly combative. Note also I had no complaints until two weeks ago.
Half these people that work here said little to nothing to me. Serious bitch complexes. The few people I got to know were pretty cool and had already been working there for while, so I figured if I took there advice I would be fine. Unfortunately I think there may have been alterior motives behind letting me go.
Talking to one of the girls I hung out with after work sometimes, she told me recently the ETL and some of the Team Leads were on a bitch of a power trip lately. It only makes more sense just how shitty Target was now that I’m not wallowing in their fecies of a work place.
The LOD told me she was surprised I was shocked to be fired. Are you kidding?! A two week notice would have been appropriate. She gave me the option to work four hours that day or just take the cash they were giving me and leave. It should become obvious to you what I did at this point.
Never again. And if they have the nerve to be friendly to me outside of that place, I’ll straighten them out better than an iron regarding my thoughts on how they’ve treated me.
Ignoring the fact I had an upcoming surgery, ignoring my medical need to SIMPLY HAVE ICE WATER TO DRINK NEARBY (This was also another one of their half ass reasons to fire me although multiple employees in the fitting room performing operator have had Starbucks cups with more than water in them). I needed to hydrate my mouth after an extraction surgery. This was not a difficult thing to ask for/throw a fit over.
They can burn in hell. The mall they’re attached to is slowly dying off anyways, I hope CostCo eats them alive. The good people there deserve better than what Target is giving them.
I finally put my two weeks in. I walked in the door and immediately told everybody. The guests, included. The greatest day of my life. Does Target even DESERVE my two weeks? Probably not, but what the hell.
I was recently fired from bad ol’ Tarjay, so I think its about time I share with this site a tale of hilarity and frustration that truly shows the failures of the company itself.
First off, I worked in Food Ave. Pizza Hut area, to be specific. So I came in on Sunday, as scheduled, and the first thing I noticed?
I don’t really know how many stores have already switched over to working in these teams or whatever but supposedly it was “just a test” to see if things would work out better this way or if we should just keep things the way they were (we never were going to have a choice obviously) Going into it we were told by our stl that it was going to be complete chaos as they didn’t even really know what was going on.
Does/has anyone on here work at store 0876? If so, what is or has, your personal experience there been like? I’ve noticed in the close to a year I’ve been stuck in this circle of hell expectations change daily. If you work hard, they’ll work you harder (especially if you’re not a favorite). The laziest workers seem to have a blind eye turned to them.
I have been at target for almost 2 years and like many loved it….at first. I went from a part time position and was promoted within my first year. I’m normally ok with the unnecessary things target does. But now they have eliminated my position and placed me in softlines which is like retail hell. Not only that but I’ve gone from working early mornings (6am) and being out no later than 2:30 to coming in at 8 and 9 asks leaving in the evenings. I am crushed because this happened so fast. I was Literally told this last week and next week is the big change. I’m also not going to be under my current TL which is terrible because the girl over softlines is not the brightest crayon in the box.
This happened a long time ago, but I had never had the chance to rant about it.
I worked between Hardlines/Cashier mainly for six months, but I did know how to pull freezers for Market and how to work Electronics, and almost everyday I went in to work I felt like complete shit. Regardless of that, I have never called off and was always willing to help any department in the store that needed it, and it sucks that the team leads nor the LODs ever appreciate me or anyone for that matter.
After 5 months of high Redcard performance, always showing up early, and being their cart bitch when they didn’t have one, I received a whopping 16 cent raise.
I was under the impression that getting a lot of redcards was compensated in the form of raises, but I was sorely mistaken. I was expecting at LEAST a quarter. What an insulting raise. Even the Dairy Queen I used to work at gave better raises than this.
I have worked for Target for five years, now.
In that time I have consistently grown in the business. I went from stocking, to setting POGs, to even being a major part of a store remodel.
After this I held a position that had me in charge of produce, which eventually had me leading a team of stockers. In the time I held that position I wondered why I did TL duties, but was considered an average TM. I was told it was for growth. So I bided my time and a year later was given a TL position over another part of the store. Another year passes and I am told that position and its neighboring position are simply being taken off Target’s listings. No longer needed. Where did that leave me?
