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

February 1, 2012 - i_hate_this_place

I seriously want to quit.

I started working for target in august 2010. It was my first job. I started out at 7.50. I didn’t think it was that bad. And i figured that after a few months, I’d get a raise. Wrong. It took me 8 months to get a raise of a whopping $.13. I worked my ass off for these people. Coming in when they called me, staying later than my shift, doing extra stuff. I’ve worked for two targets. And the second one I worked, at the LODs were horrible. They were so snotty. And certain ones would just sit in their offices on their computer while us team members worked non-stop. Our ETL even said that we weren’t even allowed to speak to each other when we zoned. We did wave zoning most of the time. Like there would be 3 of us in hardlines and we would zone c&d and then a&b. We each had to take 5 aisles and zone it by ourselves to ensure that there was no fun being had. I’ve been working there for a year and half now and I’m still not making $8 an hour. Which I find horrible. Gas stations start you out more than that. After I get out, I will never go back to target. Ever. I would love to get at least 30 hours a week, but at the most, I get 25. And then they call me on my days off almost every time. One time during the holiday season, we worked until 3 AM. I wouldn’t have been bothered by it if they paid me more. but I almost worked 12 hours that day. And the HR at my other store was a complete bitch. There was a girl i worked with in softlines that had limited¬†availability¬†because of her kids. And they always scheduled her out of her availability. So she went and talked to the HR and the HR told her that she needs to come talk to her when she figures it out. So she left. And I had this very very annoying GSTL. I always hated being a cashier when he was there because he would never leave is alone about the damn REDcards. Every 5 minutes, he’d say “are you asking about redcards? REDCARDS REDCARDS come on” I wanted to slap him. I can’t wait to leave.

    Hahaha I love your story. Your store(s) sound exactly like the stores I've worked at. The raises are a JOKE. The best I've ever gotten was a $0.09 raise. In fact, I even had a review that started out as "Excellent", and lowered to "Inconsistently Effective" because of some corporate bullshit they never did end up explaining before I just said "Eh, fuck it" and quit anyways. Target is a terrible place to work. Hence, this glorious website. Get out of there, and move on. You can do so much better.
