So I have been working at Target for about a year now. I immediately cross trained all over the place. In this time I have been cashier, cart attendant, food ave, guest service, sales floor, flow team, electronics, and I started building bikes. In the past few months I actually took over building bikes. I work my ass off constantly for this stupid job. They are constantly calling me on walkie and asking me to do six different jobs at once and I will pull it off somehow with spur of the moment thinking. So working after nearly a year of working my ass off with ridiculous expectations I go in to a meeting with one of our GSTLs and one of our ETLs. They were talking about the raises they are giving out. They hand me my paper saying I am now being paid eleven cents more than I was when I started. When I asked why it was such a small number the reply was such shit.
“We don’t feel you work hard enough.”
I literally just an hour before this meeting came in took out trash, grabbed paper bags for the front, grabbed three items off the floor, found my boss and got his keys for someone, got 4 items from the back, gave my boss back his keys, and delivered everything where it needed to go, took out trash, and dispersed the bags through the registers… AT THE SAME FUCKING TIME. Do you know what happened right after I finished doing all this shit at once. My boss complained I took too long to do it.
