Feel discriminated against
I only work 20 hours a week at Target because I’m on disability. I’m a cashier who also runs guest service from time to time. I am completely bored with my job position and have wanted to cross-train other areas of the store. In fact, on my last annual review I actually got a negative checkmark because I wasn’t cross trained despite my efforts of trying to be. (another angry story for another time)
Anyway I’m one of the top Red Card converters and I’m very fast and efficient. I know that is exactly why they don’t want to let me go from the lanes. However the other day I stayed 3 hours later than my scheduled shift to train at Food Ave. in hopes that I would get to go over there sometime and get away from the lanes for a change. The team lead said I was amazing over there and wrote a letter to HR about how she wanted me. HR wrote back and said no because I only work 20 hours a week.
I’ve also asked to be put on the floor. I’m also trained in softlines and hardlines. They have scheduled me about 4 times to be on the floor, but once I get there and ask the LOD where they want me on the floor, they tell me disappointingly “well we just really need you on the lanes today”. I feel like I’m being discriminated against because I only can work 20 hours a week. Everyone else in the store gets to work in other areas of the store except for me. I’m so bored with my unchallenging job that I am looking for employment elsewhere. The staying 3 hours late to train at Food Ave and then being rejected from working there was the last straw.
