I have been with this company for about 4-5 years. This was a great job till “MODERNZATION” came into play. This is my list of what I do on a daily basis:
So I transferred to this store because we were moving, I was excited for a fresh start instead of my last useless store who treated me like poo. At first it was nice, and it’s like everyone was absolutely rude to me. I transferred as a GSA. The GSTL was excited she didn’t have to train me, but I didn’t know their store and some how that didn’t click with anyone.
I found this site after getting fired from Target after working a week since I was so angry and wanted to find somewhere to spew my hatred for what they did to me and after a long wait, I finally tell my story.
Ok so I was desperately looking for a job near my college campus for easy commuting in December so I applied to the Target near there since they were hiring at the time and the city had a lot of working opportunity.
OOOOKAYYYY. SO. We have a long story here about why I personally HATE THE FUCK OUT OF TARGET. Anyways so, they hired me & everything was all good until I realized the head lady in HR is trash & talks shit on all the employees to other employees. Nothing but a dramatic bitch. I was “still within my 90 days” and literally had to call in cause I was puking and literally felt like I was dying. She tells me “you’ll be written up since you’re within your 90 days & it’s going on your attendance. Would you like that?” So I hung up. After that, she was trash to me. And any other “team member” who had to call in for their own well being?
Worked at target some years ago, but re reading some stories made me want to share my horrible experience with Target HR. Keep in mind this is the same guy in both stories.
1. The time I got sexually harassed at work.
At the time I was a 19 year old girl working in electronics . I was used to the usual creeper here and there, but I never expected it from a co worker. Now this guy worked for Target mobile and was about 45 at the time, and with a son about my age.
I currently work at a little bit of a smaller Target in Hardlines. Starting out as seasonal, I was pretty glad and excited to have a $12/hour job that was going to offer me lots of hours, or so they said. After what I have to assume was a pretty normal Christmas season, as I had never worked retail from Black Friday through the end of the year, I was still somewhat positive. Of course, I had seen some issues that deeply upset me, like the fact that our store has no backstop team leaving untrained and unsupervised team members to climb up 25 foot ladders with bulky and awkward 30+lb boxes to backstop, which is wholly against OSHA regulations, but I let it slide because I needed a job and it was never addressed in a reasonable way when I brought it up. I was just told by the LODs that “it would be fixed during the remodel later this year” or “I know, but just be careful.”
okay so yesterday afternoon I was fired. So what had happened was that when customers would buy a certain amount of products , they would earn a $5 gift card. They would ask me if they could use it right away & I would say yes. NOT KNOWING I WASNT ALLOWED TO BECAUSE NO ONE EVER TOLD ME.
I have worked at target for quite some time now. I spent the better half of my high school career working at this hell site. I went to work with fevers, with terrible ovary pains, on 2 hours of sleep. I barely ever missed a shift, mostly because when younger workers missed a shift they would absolutely destroy them. They would call you into the back room and just annihilate your self esteem. They would blame stuff that happened that day on you not showing up, and it got so bad that kids were afraid to call in, and came to work with the flu.
I recently started working at Target in December. I was hired as a seasonal employee along with everyone else working for the Beauty department. I was called in to the LOD’s office today and was told it was my last day bc if a no call no show on Friday. Yes I know it was stupid to do but I’m still pissed off about it.
I worked the truck line. I am a girl who can handle the weight of most of the inventory. But I can’t toss multiple items of extreme weight on my back, and pile them perfectly onto the pallets at high speed. One of my co-workers was a Target All Star. One of those arrogantly proud employees who went up and above, truly believing that corporate will one day see him, and eventually give ten fucks about his efforts. I was put on the pallet section of the line that furniture, cat liter, seasonal, and chemicals get placed on. These items start at fifty pounds, and go up from there. My all-star coworker worked paper, make up, medicine, and kitchen. As a petite woman, I had to damn near throw myself over the top of a good amount of the heavy items, and tug them off using my entire body weight. After ten minutes straight of doing this, I was absolutely exhausted.
