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

January 13, 2014 - iworkfortarget92

Not so much against Target, but ignorance from the guests.

I am so sick of people pointing the finger at Target because of the data breach. Target did not do it; a group of criminals hacked the system and leaked the information. It was also not the only store that this happened to. It happened to Neiman and Marcus as well.

I am sick of people coming to me at guest services and being like ‘”because YOU GUYS stole my identity” and pointing their finger at me. No we didn’t. And don’t tell me you understand that when I tell you “It wasn’t the store, it was a group of criminals that hacked the system” because if you did you would not get up in my face and say YOU GUYS because you would understand that we didn’t exactly jump for joy when we found out this happened because we knew we would get blamed for it. We just work for the stores and for the record, employees were also affected. Target takes security very seriously and is doing everything they can to fix this. Blaming the stores for this is ignorant so just stop. For fucks sake.

    Speaking of ignorant, you're an ignorant cunt if you think a company isn't responsible for safeguarding confidential data. The reason it only happened here and allegedly those other companies you mentioned, is because most other companies take the necessary precautions to safeguard the data. You better wise up, or you'll never get a better job than the shithole you work in.

    next time tell them it's the customers fault for being so damned stubborn about embracing change that the united states is behind everyone in credit card technology

    • Silverfox says:

      And the reason why hackers are targeting target. Because it's so danged easy to hack an old fashioned system

    • TargetSucks says:

      How does the card tech affect data storage? It was the data that was breached... More importantly than the tech issues, the predatory credit card policies and practices are what really needs to be changed in this country.

  • Silverfox says:

    I blame the guests. They are the ones who are being so stubborn it's not even funny. Nooo! I don't want emv chips I like my magnetic swipe cards! I don't want people to steal my data. Wake up and smell the coffee, your data just got stolen.

    Target sucks!

  • Barytone says:

    Target should be responsible for this…but I think the point should be made that guests should not take their frustrations out on the employees whose only job is to ring up your shit and stock the shelves.

    If you can't trust this store, don't shop here. If you can't trust our system, pay in cash. But don't come up to me and blame me for corporate's shortcomings.

    I don't have all the answers. They have mentioned it to me only twice…once to admit it happened, and second to say not to bring it up to guests…so I have no fucking idea what is going on.

    Given the poor security of the states i'm better off opening a special account just for us shopping with only a couple hundred in it. Or have chase deal with it for me via one of their two no forex fee ccs.
