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

Idk what to say about this company

Ok where do I start. Ok I have been working for Target for about a year and half now and at first I thought I was going to enjoy it but just like everyone else my distaste for working there came quick. I felt over worked and underpaid. I came into my postion without training only because I worked for Wal-Mart before and took a pay cut becasue they felt like paying me 9.00 was too much. Anywho those are old problems. My new beef with my store is I feel like they may be trying to force me to quit now that I have a new job. Now my dad always told me never burn your bridges with a job because you never know when you may have to go back and I definitely believe that. Today I went to my store to check if my schedule change had been approve. Of course it wasn’t. So I go and find my new ETL over my department to talk to her about it. She tells me oh I don’t receive the request they go to the store manager. So I look at her crazy because I know she’s feeding me bs but I let her finish. Then she tells me oh we are not accepting request change if your not available on the weekend. I tell her well I am still able to work on Sunday and Monday like I stated in my request. She like oh ok well write a hard copy in stick it in my box and submit another request and I’ll look at. Now I really feel like she was lying to me in my face but I did it anyways. I really need some advice about how to handle this situation, because I have a feeling they are not going to try and work with me because my management team does not really like me because I’m very straight forward and let them know how I feel. Should I call corporate or will that be a waste of time????

    The key in life is to learn which bridges need to be burnt, and which you should be careful of. Burn target. Burn the shit out of it.

    you're better off returning to walmart than target. Walmart is starting to follow costco's methods. a.k.a paying employees higher wages. Set schedules, etc, etc.

    I remember someone had a problem with their availability where I work. They had HR open the email after sending it only for it to say the request was already rejected. Target and computers no surprise. HR tried to do it manually and it still didn't go through. The computer system is just plain horrible.

    The whole schedling thing is a complete joke. They want to be able to monoploize your time and schedule you sometime, anytime between the hours of 8am-11pm. So bogus... There are so many high school/ college kids that are ONLY available on the weekends. Sounds like your management team are just being difficult.

    Write a comment card. They're in the hallway where the red boards that have your schedule and benefits information are located. You can write what you want about how unfair you're being treated. Then in the right hand side you can elect if you want to put your position and if you want to remain anonymous. Just make sure you put the store number in so your STL gets in trouble. The STLs do receive them and do face consequences for them, which doesn't make them happy. They're prepaid so you can write them at home and mail them yourself.
