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

I’m done with this place

I have been here for 7 years. SEVEN YEARS! I transferred to this store. Thinking I can better my experience at Target and promote. My first time applying for TL hadn’t even gotten my interview yet, and I was already hearing that someone else had gotten the position. My second time, my HR treated me horribly throughout the entire interview. Making me feel like crap about everything I said. Ever since that interview, she has treated me even more horribly. Recently I had issues with my pay check. My HR told me it was my fault, and gave me attitude and lied that she “can’t do anything about it”. Bull. I’ve had my old HR help me with a problem with a paycheck before. You only get promoted if you’re a favorite of HR. They even made a TL position for HR just so they can promote a favorite. You’re only gold if you get RedCards. The favoritism that goes on in this store is ridiculous. I get all kinds of guests commenting about how great I am. But, I get nothing for it. I had been trying SO hard to promote, but the way they are treating me is awful. I can’t believe these LODs even have a job after being open for 2 years. I dread going into work now. Screw you, Target!

    I worked at Target for 5 stinking years. The favoritism that goes on there the worse. Most of the favorites who were promoted have either gotten fired/quit. I guess if you were wanted to be promoted you would have to play office politics and kiss as much ass as you can. Well anyways fuck target.

    I hate the popularity contests that go on at Target. Who cares if every single guest and/or team member and the majority of team leads absolutely adore you, if that one ETL feels threatened by you, then you're fucked.
    Example, when I quit I had been working there 3 years. I saved every great team card and every guest comment card I had ever received. When I got home I decided to count them all. A little over 1,200. I basically had one for every single day I had worked there. Did that matter to them? Hell no! All they cared about was how I had called in a total of 20 times(during 3 years), all of which were accompanied by a doctor's note. They also hated how well liked I was by my peers, they saw that when I was passionate about something, the rest of the team followed suit. Towards the end, my passion was directed towards my hatred of Target.

    I got the last laugh in the end though. I rarely go to my old store any more, but I have friends who are still there. After I left, a few people quit the next day. Since then, they are loosing 5-10 a month. Not just cashiers and sales floor, we're talking GSAs and Team Leads as well. It's great!
