I Never Should’ve Said Yes….
I have been keeping my eye on this website for quite some time now, and since I finally quit Target I can share my story.
I was employed with Target for almost 5 years. I started off on the sales-floor the first year. Then I learned the operator. Then about 2 years later they asked me if I would be interested in doing the visual adjacencies and that’s what changed everything for me.
At first I was excited but then after I got the hang of them I realized that all I was doing was TEAM LEAD work. I never got a raise that I was suppose to get, and I was doing all the sets by myself. And the worst part is that I had a ‘team leader’ who didn’t give a damn about what I was doing if it wasn’t for her. All she cared about was getting her workload done. And making sure I get it done. Which was complete bullshit, I might add. The team leader was a bully and only picked on certain team members and it didn’t matter to her how much work you put in or not. She was so terrible that I used it as motivation to get out of there. I can go on about the different stories of how she treated people but I won’t.
To whoever is reading this I wouldn’t advise you to agree to do visual adjacencies. Not only are you doing the managers workload but you also won’t get much credit for it. Or maybe no credit at all.
Also to anyone who is reading this, because maybe you are having a shit day, and hate target with a passion. Just remember that Target isn’t shit. I thought I was never going to get out, but I did. And remember folks it’s not the end, you just have to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
