Assets Protection is the new Sales Floor Associate.
I have worked for Target for a number of years, and probably one of the better Assets Protection Team Members Target has. This is not boasting, because it is been acknowledged through corporate channels. However, as of late, it has become a new fad to force the AP Team to sell RED Cards, Zone, run abandons, do pulls, get carts, etc. Why? Someone fucked up the hours and thought no Cart Attendant on a Saturday was a good idea. One cashier? No problem, take it from the Sales Floor. Oh, now we can’t zone? Uh, oh AP is here!
No. Fucking stop right there. Not my job. Says so in my Directives.
Also says to listen to the LOD.
When it does not conflict with Directives.
Also, sell RED Cards. It deters theft.
Excuse me? No it doesn’t.
Yes it does. Thieves see you handing out these flyers (RED Card Applications), and won’t want to see you.
What fucking logic is that? No. They see I’m now an information kiosk, not doing you know, my job!
Nope. Wrong answer. Also, you aren’t going to be promoted unless you sell RED Cards.
You know I can’t use the register right?
Yeah, but you know we’ll see you selling RED Cards, so that makes the STL happy, and you know if they are not on board, you will never get promoted.
…fuck you Target.
Too late, we already fucked you, and we didn’t even buy you dinner.
That’s Target for you.
