Cashier Chronicles: Why I hate target
Okay, so I have ALOT to say about this bullshit fulfilled year at Target. I started working there when I was 16 it was my first job so I was very grateful I enjoyed the training part and the first couple of weeks but my hatred for the job started to grow. First off, the managers are just assholes! They abuse their power they act like they’re the king and queen of Scotland or something. Whenever I needed change they would take forever to get it! They would say “I’m going to get it right now” 20 minutes later still waiting for my pennies, quarters, etc. like come on. Secondly, at my location they don’t train or give everyone walkies especially the cashiers and I feel as though we should’ve had them more than ANYONE since we have to deal and interact with people more but nope when we had a problem we had to run around the damn store just to find an LOD. Also there would be no one at the entrance to buzz me in where team members could go in when the store was closed and didn’t open until 8. I was almost late twice because of them not doing their job! Thirdly, the customers there just seem more rude than anywhere else. Like really rude. They snatch their receipt from you, don’t say thanks for ringing up a load of stuff they bought, and don’t even have a conversation with you let alone say hello! And they get so hype about their coupons I understand saving money is worth it! But sometimes it’s not that serious and you need to let it go, you’re going to freak out at me because the register won’t accept your expired 0.75 off coupon? Really? Stop. And they always seem to think that you can recieve a $5 gift card if you buy just ONE of the item. READ THE SMALL PRINT PEOPLE! And then you scan the item and prove to them it is two items and they get mad at the truth and want to speak to a manager.. GET A GRIP! You always have to buy TWO of something Fourthly, the RED cards. Oh my goodness. The LOD’s and managers will push you and push you and constantly be on your case if you do not get a REDcard. “Make sure you ask every guest!” No I will not. There are some people you just know you shouldn’t even bother. They are so ungrateful when you get a REDcard you let then know and instead of saying like “great job, thanks!” Or just a simple “thanks” they say “keep it up, get me another one.” Um, I worked my ass off to get that stupid REDcard for you and all I get is a “get me another one” really? Besides the managers and LOD’s I hated the REDcard part about the Job more. Also pushing the candy cart when we open I HATED doing that. I would say to my fellow co workers “this isn’t in my job description why am I doing this?” Lastly, they BARELY scheduled me. When I first started working there I got hired around the holidays so I got mad hours but after that everything went downhill I would only get scheduled one or two days a week if that! I like money so scheduling me one or two days to me was just disrespectful I’ve been with them for a year and they hire all these new people giving them hours but not giving me anything? Yeah right. I recommend if you’re under 18 DO NOT APPLY OR WORK THERE. They only give hours to people 18+. You can’t even take people’s shifts only give them away because of stupid minor regulations. I’m so happy I’m done with that place, filling out my voluntary leave form felt awesome, and what felt even more awesome is walking into target now as a customer and NOT an employee! ANTI RED AND KHAKI! However, I do miss my co-workers not the lod’s or managers. So happy I could finally share my expierence on this website and getting a new job I feel truly blessed but seeing other people going through what I went through is refreshing! I will never work at Target again. Thank you to whoever took time to read my rant!
