A last ditch effort
Well, let’s cut to the point. I was an IT for a big corporate company, got laid off after someone stole a great sum of money from the company, and Target hired me shortly after for 7.50 an hour (taxes are outrageous, making less per hour than when I was making 6.55 an hour) shortly after my Mom left (she worked at the same one and transferred after she moved) I was hired on as a Cart Attendant / Cashier.
So far, I have had to clean up human feces several times (5+ Times now in a 6 month period) with my LODs laughing at me because it was soo disgusting.
Last week from this post, respectively, we sold $40,000 more than expected, and I was cart attendant. They complained about me not going for “Guest First” because I was swamped because it was me vs. hundreds of people pouring out of the building.
I have nearly been hit in the parking lot over 12 times now (recorded on video) and found 3 wallets in the carts (I returned them, due to religious beliefs)
Today, I was told that a couple of LODs were complaining I wasn’t friendly enough (even put it in documentation that I was unfriendly to co-workers) and that I wasn’t getting enough redcards, even though it has no initiative for me to get them.
It pains me to know that I am currently in College for CNS (Computer Networking Security) and formerly worked as an IT (loved it) and they wont even put me in electronics because I am not friendly enough.
You try struggling to pay the bills and get told you aren’t working hard enough and see how much you smile.
the Redcard system is a broken way to judge workers and the pay is trash.
Today is what finally set me off. I am in College, and that means I have class that can not be missed. The dumb bitch in HR scheduled me for 4 days only of work, in total 22.5 hours. 2 of the shifts being exactly what I have as unavailable because that is when my classes are. She merely gives the hours to someone else and tells me “good luck finding more hours”
I can’t even begin to pay my bills on a 10 hour week scenario, and she won’t even get in the slightest trouble for giving me hours I can’t do.
anyways, if I get fired, I will keep you guys posted, and I may quit on Black Friday (1am-9am Cart attendant, if I don’t get hit)
Thanks for reading.
