Man Oh Man….
I just hit my 90 days and I’m surprisingly holding on. The longer I work there the more I notice my coworkers’ disatisfaction with target as well. They bs their love for their job in front of new tm’s because they never know who might be a kiss ass and snitch. Last weekend I had what i deemed the worst shift ever at target, not only for me but for my fellow tm who was working toys who i will refer to as “bobby”. we were constantly being called on those damn walkies to see where we were in our zones only to be told we needed to pick up the pace (and help entitled guests, and respond to backup,and do 2 carts of go backs) so we said we would try becausse there was no guarantee that we would finish. I showed up thinking i was doing ad takedown so i took my break with the ad team. I was yelled at because i wasn’t supposed to do ads i just happened to come in at the same time as the ad team and be in the ad team huddle…bogus right. so i say fine and continue my job. LOD proceeds to tell me im going too slow and is concerned about me not finishing my zone…she sees that i completely redid the pens and pencils aisle making it look presentable and she’s like wow this looks great….with the bitchiest attitude i tell her “yeah, that’s why ive been so ‘slow’ today” she proceeds to lash out on bobby saying he doesnt zone the way he used to and should that hes changed. bobby obviously gets a bit sad and tells me that he tries his best and does everything he’s told to. at closing i hear bobby’s name called out on the walkie 5x in a span of 10mins. the look on his face said that he wanted to get hit by a train because he was so fed up. not only that, i got lectured because backroom tm’s think its a good idea to leave their unfinished carts with pulls on the floor and just go home…….then have hardlines get blamed. long story short, the expectations are crazy. i like my coworkers theyre all nice ppl, LOD’s theres like 3-4cool ones and the rest are snobby and discouraging. whenever ppl ask if we’re hiring or i see a person using the computer by guest services applying i just wanna tell them not to work there because its hell on earth!!
