    Employees ignore calls for assistance

    I needed to get some cough drops unlocked, since about 65% of stuff on the second floor of my local target is now under lock and key, only to have an employee walk right by me and blatantly ignore me after having rang for help. I waited a minute then rang again, the same employee walks by and ignores me, doesn’t even bother to say anything. This went on for almost 15 minutes before another customer who needed help in the same aisle chased the employee down and asked for help. The employee had been more interested in stocking shelves instead of helping customers get what they needed unlocked. What angers me, is that this unfortunately happens ALL THE TIME at this Target as well as any other store I’ve been to that has merch locked up here in Philadelphia.

    App rant

    There was an update for their already crap app earlier today (at least it was for me–apparently it had been out for a couple days for others), which was slow as molasses after I signed in (plus I had to enter my searches SEVERAL TIMES for it to give any results at all), that had added a duplicate app icon to many users’ phones, mine included.

    I wasn’t aware of this issue so I was lead to believe that the problem was with my phone instead of the app and was on the verge of doing a factory reset since I couldn’t figure out as to why this happened (I’ve never had any Play Store app updates put a duplicate icon on my devices before) or to get rid of it.

    So annoyed that yet again another greedy app developer had yet again rushed out an buggy app update without properly and thoroughly testing it! ????

    I’m just glad that they didn’t drag their feet and pushed out another update the same day that fixed the icon issue which saved me from erasing my phone.

  • Target uses a 3rd party delivery service called “Capstone” in my area for most of my orders now and I’ve had NOTHING but problems with them delivering my stuff. Constant lies about not having access to my building, cockroaches in the boxes a few times, missing items if I order more than one of the same item in some, “cancelled” without any explanation after being “out for delivery” on 2 most recent occasions. Customer service is BS since most of the time, they DON’T know what they’re doing or what you’re trying to tell them. Complaining only gets corporate BS copy and pasted script “promising to do better” or “will pass concerns to…”, yadda yadda yadda.
