My work experience with target.
So I started working at target in August of 2015. Well I was pregnant with my son and they had me doing freight. I was having to unload the truck lift all the boxes and everything. I talked to the store director and seen if I could change to cashier. Well she let me. So everything was going good. Before I had my son they had me doing $ spot all day. So I go on maternity leave and I get back and they still have me doing $ spot. So I’m doing that and around August of 2016 they had me coming in when freight would come in and stock $ spot and do the go backs. So In november I Was showing up late a good amount or call in for family issues but yet I got all of my stuff done and they sat down and talked to me and said I need to start coming in on time and not calling out. So I was going to do that. Well at that time I just found out I was Pregnant. So I go home and everything. That night I started bleeding and called the doctors office and told them and they told me to come in the next morning for blood tests and to rest. Well I worked the next morning. So I called that night and told the lod what was happening and he was okay with it. So I ended up having a miscarage and I go in the next time I work and they pull me into an office and wrote me up for calling in even though I had a doctors note. That’s also the second time they wouldn’t accept a doctors note from me. But so after that I showed up on time every day not calling out or anything. Well I got pregnant again in January of 2017. I didn’t want to tell anyone because of my miscarage and so I was keeping it a secret. I was still doing $ spot wanting to change positions but no one would let me. But I would work and get sick or just feel really tired and it took me longer to do my job. Called out maybe 3 times because of it. So in February I decided to talk to the lod that was over me and tell her that I can’t do the early mornings and told her I was pregnant and by that time I was 10 weeks. So she said she would work with me and get me back to days. Well the next day the schedule comes out and I wasn’t on it. I was like okay maybe she was writing me one. I didn’t see her that whole day. So then the next day I come in and she was off that weekend a different lod said. So I do my work and I was almost off and the hr comes up to me and said after I finish and before I leave if I could go find her. So I finish up take the back stock to the back and find her. She fired me. Said I called in too much and I was warned multiple times. Mind you I only had one warning written notice not late since November only called in because I was sick cause of being pregnant. And I told her that and she didn’t give a shit. So they made me work my whole shift to fire me after it. I was pissed. Why does one lod that I talked to that said she would help me and then I get fired.
Im now happy though that I’m away from there. Didn’t end up working til after I had my daughter and have an amazing job somewhere else that isn’t way more put together then target. I haven’t even walked into a target since.
