I Hate Cashiering!
I live in a fairly rich city, so almost all the “guests” are snobby, short, and snippy with me. The other day I had some crazy lady with her screaming baby bite my head just because I was “socializing” with the lady before her while I was ringing her up, you know, doing my JOB.
I could come to work in the best mood and just an hour of cashiering will ruin it. I keep trying to get my ETL to cross train me elsewhere that doesn’t involve dealing with as many guests, like softlines or the café, but, you know how that goes at Target. “Oh, payroll is too low” “oh, there’s no one to train you at that time.” Every excuse in the book.
When the GSTL’s push me too hard on REDcards, I get back at them by finding the moodiest guest in my line, pushing them for the card to the point they get pissed and want to complain to a manager, then watching them take the heat. Do that enough times, and they’ll shut up.
I did not know what I was signing up for when I clicked “cashier” on my Target application. If you’re thinking of applying to Target, do yourself a favor and pick ANYTHING as your first, second, and third choice but cashier. The consistent rude customers, pressure to get REDcards, and screaming, obnoxious little beasts will have you hating your job in a month, if not less.
I’m lucky enough to work at a well-paying Target, but if you deal with all this bull for minimum wage, just quit. Washing dishes at McDonald’s is more pleasant than this.
