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

December 24, 2017 - teaso

Just found out i wont be kept past seasonal.

Schedules for the week of December 31st to January 6th were released today and my name was nowhere to be found on it. I guess I should have expected an outcome like this. Everyone at that store was always very childish and loved to gossip behind the backs of others. Target was my first job and it sucks to do your absolute best and not even be considered for a permanent position. I was naïve to think that this job would be fun.

I’m not going to sit here and lie and say I was the perfect employee but I was damn sure better than some of the other seasonals they had that were invited to stay past their date. I got redcards, I endured emotional abuse from guests with a smile never fading from my face, and I always did what was asked of me. Ive even had a guest go up to one of the gstl’s and tell them how much of a delight that I was. speaking of….

Don’t even get me started on the gstl’s that were at my store. From my first day that I came in I knew that they did not like me and they would be extra critical of what I did at all times. They would have me work closing shifts often with me being the only register open while other seasonals got to zone or collect go backs or hangers. My name was never written on their clipboard when it came to redcards, it was almost as if I hadn’t gotten a single fucking one. And if I needed help? Don’t even bother was my motto because when they came they never failed to berate me as if I was an idiot.

I’m glad this shitshow of a job was my first. It’s helped to thicken my skin and to become wiser of who I trust at work if I trust anyone.

    what do you expect? Target is the company that ran away rather than stay when it found out Canada has such thing as min wage increases tied to inflation. They didn't like the forced 10 to 75 cent raise across Canada.

    Oh yeah and you're new. Newbies get all the shit shifts unless a senior volunteers for it like at our store. Suck it up. New and being looked as if you're an idiot? Did you pay attention during training? Half the newbies I see don't pay attention during training and ask the questions that were explained and answered during training. Dont get me startrd on stupid newbie questions. I had the stupidest question the other day from a newbie. How to replace the register paper roll. *rolls eyes* Pretty sure that's the first thing taught during training.
