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

November 10, 2018 - Iwannadie

First day was absolute shit.

So today was my first day as a seasonal. I work in the apparel and was hired last week. The whole process seemed rushed to me. Orientation was good but the tour of our store sucked. The person that was in charge of our orientation was training under the HR of our store who LEFT IN THE BEGINNING OF THE ORIENTATION. She did good but all the people in the store are new or just don’t care.

They didn’t really go much into details about anything and during my first day of training they just threw me in the kids apparel to tidy up. Literally no training at all. I just walked around and reorganized clothes for 8 hours and had other employees come to me in search for items I couldn’t point out to them because I didn’t know. They didn’t even give me a walkie so I was on my own. They didn’t even tell me when to take my lunch break and I almost got in trouble for going to take it so late.

The management seems like a mess and the employees seem annoyed when I ask them for help. All of the new hires are lost and confused like me. I also work 40 hours these next two weeks. Is this normal for a new seasonal hire??? I only wanted to work a maximum of 35 hours a week so I have time to focus on school and other stuff but they scheduled me these long hours. I understand that it is to prepare seasonal employees for Black Friday and all that bs but this is really intense and stressful…especially with no training.

I don’t know if I will stay after November. I am going to do my best and endure it for now since I could use the money. I was so excited to work here and after today I am just exhausted.

    That what Tarshit does just throws you the dogs without training. The worst time to be hired is seasonal. Especially in soft lines. You poor soul. They never teach how to use anything. If you have sympathetic co-worker who will show you use things otherwise your on own. They hope we be feed up and leave.

    What it is with employees at Target is that they are afraid that you are going to take their jobs and their hours. The management does not give the trainers much time to train. Plus lots of the trainers are trainees themselves. Same happens at this Target in Frederick MD.
