Target Sucks - We Hate Target and We Know We're Not Alone.

Brooks Was Here.

Hey, fellow Tarshitians;


I come bearing glorious news. Today, after the worst eight whole months of (what, up to this point, seemed to be) my worst miserable nightmare…I’M FREEEEEEE! Fucking FREE of Target Canada!

Let me give you the fucking breakdown. So yesterday, I was pulled into one of my store’s ETL offices for one of those bullshit “corrective action” talks. Basically, I was told that I was to speed up and get more work done, lest I be fired in 30 days. Makes sense, right? Because not only was I assigned tasking, all well and good that is, but was also responsible for covering all of housewares, toys, electronics, seasonal, pets, sporting goods, do SFNs, answer guest calls, respond to 1+1’s, do SPL’s start to finish, attend all circle jerks and zone mid day…you know, the usual bullshit.

PLUS, I was told the decision about a time-off request I submitted TWO WHOLE MONTHS before I needed ONE FUCKING DAY off to attend a friend’s wedding was denied because, and I quote, my TL never got it. Which makes sense, right, cause I handed it to the fucking douche and he approved it RIGHT THERE. TWO MONTHS AGO.

Today, I waltzed in….submitted a letter of immediate resignation…and for good measure, right by the door to our TSC, are the check lanes, and right there is a table of soft lines clothes? Swept my arm across that table, knocking every one of the clothing items right off, and told the soft lines TM who was standing right there, “my kindest regards, you unfortunate soul.”

    Thank you. I would like to take this opportunity to thank, both it's founders and contributors, for allowing me to realize I was not alone and there was, indeed, a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I will continue to browse this website and offer my support in due earnest for my fellow red-and-khakis. For one thing shall remain eternal; our all-singing, all-dancing hatred for Target.

    Get busy liven', or get busy die'n

    Every new day where I'm still at Target is a wasted day of life.

    Congrats on getting out! But as a softlines TM, I would have punched you in the face for destroying my table, even if you gave me your "kindest regards".

  • Flyers000 says:

    Congrats on your departure but I didn't see a reason to knock the clothes off the your coworker more work. I assume they didn't do anything to deserve that.

  • Silverfox says:

    on the bright side it means they are losing money if they can't afford to hire people. or maybe because they can't keep canadians working for them? hey they offered $13.50 in Alberta and still couldn't keep people. lol will tarshit ever figure out we aren't as dumb as they think we are?

  • disgusted says:

    They treat workers worse then shitiest shit, Of course no one wants to work for them. Evil evil evil company. I cannot wait for them to close up shop in Canada, and sure even in the US, although that likely wont happen, but keep it in tarshit Canada, and your days are numbered for sure.....I can't wait...........Evil evil tarhit,

    • Silverfox says:

      They still haven't figured that part out and think canadians will jump to work for them. Extremely hard to keep people in alberta as there are the oil sands. With oil rig jobs paying $20+ an hour, who the heck wants to work for target unless they're wanting some pocket money while in school?

    "The funny thing is, on the outside, I was an honest man, straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook." I say you go on and sweep ALL the goddamn clothing items you want, 'cause fuck 'em, that's why!
