Target Sucks - We Hate Target and We Know We're Not Alone.

Another get everything in writing moment…

Tarshit SSTL (shit store team lead) Attention college students. We want you to finish school… really we do. PLEASE don’t take a job from another company. Come to Target! We will work with your schedule… until you actually put the request in.

So, I was told “we encourage students to work here, but we ask for open availability”

I explain, “I will be open availability for the next 3 months, and then my semester will start. Here is my availability afterwards.”

STL: “Ok that’s fine, just put in a request closer to when your school schedule starts.”

Me: “Ok, thanks.”

–So I work open availability for 3 months.–

I put the request in computer and………….. denied.

I figure it is a mistake. I put the request in again……….. denied– too restrictive.

I talk to store manager, he was the one to deny it.

STL: “Availability requests are based on store needs. I can’t approve it at this time.”

Me: “I showed it to you before and there was no problem then. I am a senior level student, I can’t mess up my last year.”

STL: “The tough thing in this business is that needs can change from a day to day basis. We need everyone on open availability.”


I would have considered another job paying a bit more, but figured “at least they work with my schedule.” FUCK YOU STL 😮
