After training at two separate locations it became immediately clear that Target runs a LEAN operational strategy (using the least amount of employees needed & keep those employees just below breaking point everyday). Target management will explain this away as a “live up to the challenge” moment but in reality, it is a consistent case of always filling in and falling behind.
I’m a guest advocate and my store is basically not doing anything. I got yelled at by my team lead to clean my belt bc of COVID, and all she gave me was the generic spray. No disinfectant or anything. In fact, my whole shift, my belt and area never gets disinfected ONCE.
People are getting all up in my face and GSTLs are not helpful when people are literally up on top of me. We’re seriously supposed to be social distancing and I’m in one of the most infected states. Just putting stickers on the floor doesn’t do anything.
There’s guests just walking around the store and coming in large groups. I’m sorry, but now is not the time to buy a bikini or foundation.
My store has also not given masks or gloves to me. Only to the people doing the “cleaning” shifts, who aren’t even rly cleaning anyway.
The Target store I worked for got new management in this last year.. and they are all lazy. We got a new SD recently and she turned out to not only be the laziest most useless human but also a complete bitch. They all complain and bitch about team members not getting things done but they sit in the office all day talking bad about team members instead of helping or trying to make changes.
I have the worst ETL HR in the world. Read on and I think you’ll agree!
Let’s call her Helga.
Helga and I started in our new positions on the same day. I’m the HR TM. I’m not actually new to the position, just to this store. I took a brief hiatus from Tarshit (why did I go back???) and did GM at my new store until the old HR TM left and I applied for her job and got it.
So Helga and I start on the same day. A fresh new start, right? I’m sure this new ETL HR will be just as awesome as my old HR TL and everything will go swimmingly, right?
Target sucks. FUCK them. But happy anniversary to this website! 10 years now we’ve been hating on the big box of doom. Reading the stories on this site, and how common the bullshit is, amazes me that those cunts are still in business.
Hey Tarshit, Fuck You!
I started writing stories about my bad experiences at Target. I thought it may be funny to share some of them here. If this isn’t allowed please delete.
The Price Change Lady
As we all know at Target cashiers or “checkout advocates” as they’re now called are given the authority to override price changes that are within $20. That is as long as they are deemed reasonable. As you can imagine this leads to some people abusing the system. But the person I will describe here took it to an entirely different level. So gather round folks and grab some popcorn as I regale you all with a tale. A tale of someone’s who’s cheapness is matched only by her ratchetness.
Had my first cartwheel experience.
Advertised price 20% off. I scanned and my items were not sale price. I asked and was told the sign says you must use the app.
Wrong, sign says message and data rates apply. Sign topper says cartwheel.
Signs do not say you must download an app, then have the Target store scan a bar code on your phone. Just another way to steal your personal information and false advertisement. I refuse to purchase anything from Target again. I will shop at CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid but not Target. The excuses I was told make no sense. Target, you screwed up.
They offer 20% off entire store purchases over $50, but when you pay at register you get a coupon for 20% off all purchases starting 11/28-12/10. They get people to purchase a lot of items for black friday only to let them save 20% later when they purchase much less!
I recently ordered an item for a relative’s wedding. She lives halfway across the country from me. I chose the option to have the item delivered. A week or so later, I got a message saying that it was not delivered and suggested it had been damaged(?). However, when I tried to chat with one of their service representatives, he told me that even though it had a delivery option, it was not available for delivery and the “system overrode” my order. Neither she nor I live close to a Target. and of course I didn’t get my money back, I got a store credit which is essentially useless. AAAAAARRGH!!!!
I can’t believe I work at target it’s a living hell. My name is Insert name here and i was a softlines team member but i got switched to hardlines and I thought I would be free and feel relaxed. But as my three months ended I started to feel physically and emotionly drained. I tried to be positive but I can’t anymore.
