Idk if anyone here is a cashier but I am and it really sucks. So yesterday I was working from like 9:00 am to 5:30 and I was the only cashier they had scheduled until like 3:00 PM lol… nothing new there. Actually there was one other girl scheduled to cashier but she has a superiority complex and instead of cashiering on a regular register, she jus HAD to stay at guest service and ring people up there. She’s usually a GSA/GSTL but she’s horrible at her job because she always gossips and made this day A LOT harder than it had to be because she was basically at guest service doing nothing while I had a fucking huge line going all the way out to god knows where. Of course in the middle of this my register breaks, which happens like every single day at Target btw, so I had to move even though this lady had a ton of shit on the belt already, which I felt bad about but she was nice. So anyways, my patience was growing really thin, and then I start ringing up the rudest oldest woman I’ve ever dealt with and I’ve been working here for like 8 months. I’m a very sensitive person and I can’t stand when people are angry at me and every customer was angry because I was the only cashier like it was my fault. Well this lady was… idk… I can’t even explain… omg… she was just yelling at me and like mumbling and calling me names, embarrassing me in front of the 20 fking million people in line behind her.
HEY so you know how they harass us cashiers to get people to take those surveys at the bottom of the receipt? I have found a solution although I don’t know if it’s allowed. just ask the guest if they want their receipt and sometimes they’ll say no, so just keep the receipt, save it for later, and take the survey yourself and give yourself excellent ratings. Anyone know if we can get in trouble for this, or if they have any way of knowing it’s actually us taking the survey and not the actual guests??
This is my first job I’ve ever had, I have been a cashier for about 3 months and honestly 3 months has been long enough for me to realize that 90% of Target guests have crawled out of the ground from hell. Don’t even know why I’m still working here because I’m a full time student and they have been giving me 30+ hours even when I asked for less.
Not only are the guests bad, but a lot of my team members really dislike me for some reason. I think it’s because I’m young (I look REALLY young but I’m 20) and in college so they think I’m stuck up, but I have social anxiety. I greet the guests, smile at everyone, yet that’s not enough because I don’t hold 10 minute long conversations with the guests.
honestly i still have no idea where we’re supposed to pick them up on the friday pay day and I’ve been there for 2 months.
