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

March 19, 2015 - NotTellingYou

I work in HR!

I can tell you for sure that everyone who complains about hours is 100% truthful. They try not to give anyone (other than TLs and upper management) 40 hours. They try to keep under 32 so the health insurance is cheaper for them. I hear complaints all the time about not getting 40 hours even though that was requested. So many cashiers want 40 hours, but we are still hiring cashiers to keep hours low for each person.

    Here another thing to make things cheaper! How about we cut the pay rate of all the Tls and upper/lower managements. Since mostly I see them talking way to much like 1-2 hours in girl clothing area doing absolutely nothing. Heck!!! some of them don't know how to use the cashiers registers for god sakes. Yet, some of them have the audacity to say there helping making sales. Too much talking then working of all my observation (constant pattern) working there. Besides, there no need to have like 10-15 manager at one store. I've seen too many store with too many Tls and managements. To me... it's a sign of no structure... no structure whatsoever! Since Target is the second largest retailer.... OOPPSSS... I'm sorry... we have to wait on that since closing all 133 store in Canada, defrauding their suppliers and 1.9 billion out of there asses out of nowhere. We'll watch the downwards spiral of Target demise!

    And how does that make you feel? Knowing that you have to follow/practice rules that are designed to keep money in the pocket of Target and out of the pocket of team members? Target= the devil.

      Red Card Fairy - it makes me feel like crap. Especially knowing that the people that want the hours the most are the ones that need them the most - for money, healthcare. I'm actively looking for a new job and I'm glad that I have healthcare through my husbands job. I think pretty much all retail does the same thing. What I just don't get is that my store has some great cashiers that do everything they are asked - get multiple red cards per shift, sell the warranties, are "fast, fun and friendly", and "vibe" with the guests. But I'm asked to call people who clearly don't want to work many hours, just to keep corporate costs down. It does suck, but right now it's the job I do have and I do the best I can to help the TMs who really want/need to be there.
