My worst nightmare!
I started working for target on the 5th of November. This is my very first job. I really did not need a job but I needed the experience. I am studying to become a Registered Nurse and later a CRNA. My first day was great because I had 2 wonderful ladies training me. However, the other 2 are just plain HORRIBLE. They are rude and look at me like I don’t know a thing. The 2 wonderful women that trained me were impressed as how fast I learned everything because of the fact that I never in my life cashiered. Anyway, those two are just plain rude and evil. They talk about employees that work under them like they’re worthless and scum. I have only had 1 rude family that basically yelled at me for an expired coupon they took off the water they were purchasing. The man asked me don’t you guys put the bags in the cart. I replied, “No, but I can if you want me too.” He looked at his wife and then me as if I was his slave and he just plain hated me. Then when I put their stuff in their cart while they just stood there with their 3 kids yelling at me for an expired coupon. I don’t understand why people have to yell at you when they can just as well say it in an APPROPRIATE manner like civilized people. Well when that was sorted out, one of the ladies named P** came over and told me you have to say would you like to save 5%? As she said that I kept thinking to myself how many times do I have to keep on asking when clearly no one is interested. I have been asking every single person and I feel like I am basically harassing people with all of these dumb questions. Within this month I have achieved to get 4 Redcards and 6 others who at the time did not have a check with them but came by another day and signed up with another cashier. Then the other rude lady came upto me and said you have to ask for redcards don’t just stand there. What else do you want me to do. I wouldn’t like to be harassed for some dumb card that only saves you 5% while you can get better deals with other stores. Yesterday 2 of my coworkers and I were talking about how we have this deadline for the no. of cards we have to get in one day and for that day it was 15. We managed to get 18, the manager said that’s it and was furious. I would honestly like to see one of them try and convince people to get the card. When I was in training I was told to change the price if the customer said it was different, and I did but today S***** came upto me and said if it’s over $5 you have to ask me. I’m confused first you tell me that I have to change the price and now you say I have to ask you first. Then in the same day S***** came upto me when she saw 2 African American ladies with a child in my lane and said if they try to pay for a gift card with another gift card say no and then if they give you a problem tell me. Well when it was their turn she started paying with a Visa card. At the end of everything S***** came up and said she let you pay for it today with your gift card but next time we’re not going to do that. Then she looked at me all pissed. How on Earth was I supposed to know that was a gift card and that was what she meant when she said gift card. I was thinking of those other gift cards with the flowers, dogs, etc. The poor girl looked at me and said I’m so sorry for getting you in trouble and I just smiled and said oh, it’s ok it’s not your fault. They do not know how to train the cashiers at all. I asked P** one day to help me open up one of those DVDs with the locks on them and she said in a very rude manner that I should learn because Black Fridays around the corner. Well when she came to open it she embarrassed herself because she did not have a clue as to how to open it either and had someone else come and teach me. She was very rude about it and said if you want to keep your job then you better learn. She had me clean up around the register which I always did and still do. As for today I was sent home early because it was raining and things were slow. There is no way I want to work for Target after 90 days, and the only reason I am is to help out my family pay a couple of bills. Next time some one comes into Target for an interview, all I’m going to say is, run!
