All the employees who are working at my store location had to go to a meeting with the ETL-HR and the STL. Apparently, Target is discontinuing the Health Benefits for all team members effective March 1, 2014. Someone asked why and the ETL gave some reasons about not enough employees are signing up. and with the new Obama Care ( Affordable Care Act) people can go online and probably find cheaper insurance somewhere else.
Is it really the reason that I mentioned, or is it the fact that Target has to pay for the one year of credit service for everybody that has shopped at Target, even people who have not shopped there. and the team members are being hit. Now, I dont have health insurance with Target, and I dont want to, but I know people in the store that depended on it just in case something happened
I have been paying attention closely and noticed a lot of things lately.
To start with my store has an upstairs which has the offices, break rooms, and HR and in order to get up there you have to go through a secure door with a key pad on it. My store has one person who is bound to a wheel chair. I realized that he has never really been able to enjoy the things that are offered to us sometimes ( Movie day, fresh fruit day, Sonnys BBQ, Papa Johns Pizza, Stocking stuffers, etc). I definately feel bad for him because the store has not done anything to accommodate him so he can at least be apart of the team and not eat his lunches in Food Ave, or outside.
Does the individual store benefit from people signing up for a red card?
I say that to say this, tonight the closing L.O.D got pissed off because we only got 1 red card. LOL.
Someone said, Hey one is better than zero and the LOD replied, no 1 is even worst, we are dead last in the district for red card conversation, one of the newer stores is doing better than us and we are close to the shopping mall and airport that should never happen.
So I ask, what do the individual stores get from corporate if anything from people signing up for the red card?
If the holiday season here, Shouldn’t the GSTL be held responsible for ensuring that everyone on the front lanes has taken their breaks and lunches on time before they hit compliance.
yesterday I was 5 minutes away from hitting compliance and I get chewed out because I didn’t tell anyone that I was hitting the 6 hour mark. Personally, I dont think its my fault because the GSTL at my store have a clipboard with times that everyone should take their breaks and meals.
So, what do you think about it?
So, working at Target I have developed a lot of pet peeves while working the front lanes as a cashier and cart attendant that irritate me everyday. After reading my list, post your pet peeves in the comments
