    Don’t work at Target!

    I have been working at Target for a few months now. I haven’t received any official training and they made me work on the floor since day 1. My role is cashier but more than half the time I’m told to work in another department or ‘re-shop’ and ‘zone’ (which they call “cross-training”). I’ve been given a warning because one ‘guest’ complained that I wasn’t smiling enough. I was given another warning when I forgot to inform one ‘guest’ about the red card and coupon (the ETL/LOD always snoops around behind you). Perhaps I was exhausted from working an 8+ hour shift, but they don’t care as they expect you to work like a robot. The expectations are highly unrealistic and you will always be criticized and never recognized for the work you do. I have never missed a day of work and have always worked on days I wasn’t scheduled for (when I was called in on 7am on a regular basis). If you value your dignity, do not work at Target. They will transform you from a human being into a corporate slave robot, with no aspirations or motivations whatsoever. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy.

    I have already submitted my resignation.
