Target Sucks - We Hate Target and We Know We're Not Alone.
  • I needed something from the stupid store. I went there. They had it, 6 of the same item on a peg for $4. Rings up at $8. Do I care THAT much about $4? No. But if you have a product with a price, and it isn’t just one misplaced item…HONOR THE FUCKING PRICE. $4 is a small price to pay for good customer service, a concept that Target doesn’t get.

    MY CHALLENGE TO YOU ALL:

    If you find a price discrepancy, take a picture! Send it to the Department of Weights and Measures. Target is chock full of price issues and violations. It’s been a long time since I was a retail manager, but at the time the fine was $1000 per violation. If everyone makes an effort to take pictures and file complaints, we can hurt the stupid company that loves to screw over its customers and employees alike.

    Get to work!!!

    Burglarized, Fired, Screwed and Lied To

    Let me first start by saying that this is the greatest web site ever conceived.

    So here is my story of BS Target experience. I started working for the Garland Texas, Super Target in 2005 as a Backroom Team Member working the overnight shift. After 2 years I decided that I wanted to try dayside Produce out, it wasn’t a bad racket, I had 40 hours a week, benefits, certifications on backroom equipment, and a lot of respect among some, but not all of my former co-workers.

    Target Hates People

    Get a load of this! I work for a target in st. louis for about 10 years. I had heard last week that a co-worker’s father passed away. i wanted to know when the wake and funeral was. So, I waited a week to ask since i hadn’t heard anything since they ALWAYS post the wake/funeral announcements. Today, I asked someone at work when my co-worker’s funeral was and they told me it was on 2 days ago. So i in turn asked why wasn’t it posted earlier. I was told that Target doesn’t post that stuff anymore because it’s not “brand”, or professional looking to post such stuff. Basically, it doesn’t look good for the store’s image.

    I COULD NOT TELL YOU HOW ANGRY I WAS WHEN I HEARD THIS!!! The fucking powers-that-be think it looks bad? What the hell is that logic? The company used to care about people somewhat, now they don’t even matter because of corporate bullshit logic like that. THAT”S WHY I am so glad I’m leaving the company and getting a career going and dumping the shit hole of a company. If you ever consider working for the “bulls-eye”, think again!

    Dear Target Customer service:

    Dear Target Customer service:

    As a customer since 2001 I was astonished today when I decided to take you up on your shopping offer and save 10% when using my Target to make a purchase. I checked my account balance and found that my available credit had been reduced recently which given the current state of the economy is completely understandable as you are likely minimizing risk. Rather than $300 of available credit I expected you had reduced my available credit in the last few weeks to just $100. Again, understandable given these uncertain times. So I took some cash and my card with $100 of available credit according to your update just a few days ago and went to my favorite Target location here in Seal Beach to do some Christmas shopping in an effort to take advantage of the 10% offer YOU SENT TO ME in the mail recently.

    When I arrived at check out after an hour and a half spent shopping at your establishment I was told by the very nice cashier that unfortunately the purchase had been declined. I reduced the level of my purchase to under $40 and was again told it would not go through. Unbelievable. How was this possible?

    Stupid Store Policies

    I bought an iced-tea maker on clearance. Two days later my friend bought the same one for half the price. I went back to Target with my receipt for them to adjust the price the day after my friend got his. So THREE days after I purchased the iced-tea maker, they told me there was nothing they could do to adjust the price it’s “against their store policy to adjust clearance items.” FUCK THAT! I had it for 3 days and the day before my friend gets it for half the price, what the hell is that about? They told me the only thing I could do is return it for a refund, and let it go through the return process. IF they put it back on the shelf I can repurchase it at the discounted price. IF I find it.

    How the hell is this policy good for business, or their customers? I can just return the crap and they can be stuck with USED clearance items. Which I did. I returned it and they can go fuck themselves. Ok, I only sort of returned it. They had a display model left, which I purchased at the discounted price, put it in the box from the one I had at home and returned it for the original purchase price. Take that! shitty customer service bastards! Small victory, but a victory just the same.

  • I bought a PS3 Slim. My old one had the YLOD/RLOD (Yellow/Red Light of Death) and over-heated and died 3 times (I repaired it each time). So I bought the PS3 Slim and was deciding whether or not to buy the 3 Year Warranty. I decided for the $30 it would cost me it would be worth it, so I went back to Target with the original receipt, and tried to purchase the warranty. None of the morons that worked there could figure how to sell the warranty even though I was told I just need to bring the receipt in to add it on within 90 days.

    So the morons behind the counter tried calling the manager on duty to come help. They paged her 3 times to customer service and the lazy bitch didn’t come. Instead, she asked what they needed. They explained and she told them that if it’s not working I should drive home and bring the PS3 in. I asked the morons behind the counter “is she too lazy to come up here?” and they replied “yeah, all the managers here are really lazy, especially her.”

    So they told the bitch that I wanted to speak with her and after waiting almost 10 minutes she finally came to customer service to try and “help.” She couldn’t figure it out either so I tried asking her a question about it and the dizzy cunt tried TALKING OVER me and wouldn’t listen! I said, excuse me, I’m the customer here and I have a question, and you need to listen. I suggested a possibility and she wouldn’t even try it because I didn’t have the box with me. Instead she purposely provoked me to piss me and I called her a dizzy cunt, which she is, and I left. Stupid dizzy cunt.

    I Hate Target

    I didn’t always hate Target. There was a time when I thought they were a great retailer that actually cared about their customer’s experiences (and maybe even their employees). I recently have been finding this to be a blatant pipe dream. I spent over a decade working as a retail manager for other companies, some of which actually cared about Customer Service. We always did whatever was needed to make the customer happy. Target apparently never heard of this concept.
