It should come as no surprise to anyone still working at Target that inventory is always a very stressful time of the year. But now since “modernization” has begun it’s become even worse than I thought possible. The zones in all areas are not being maintained because it’s all anyone can do to keep up with pushing the truck. There are so many empty spaces on the floor because nothing is being audited properly. Chances are there is more just sitting in the back but none of it is being pulled.
Ok, so as you guys read further, and before I begin with all the fucking goddamn bullshit that Target/Tarshit and the Tarfuckers at target workers had to offer me, I want to say that this is true and I’m sorry you had to see the light of day of me, the dark side and the true hate that comes out of my soul.
Okay so I had a rough day today at work, all because an LOD was being rude and making feel stressed since I started my shift till I clocked out. I work in fulfillment department and I have to get the items every 30 minutes, a batch is impossible to do in 30 minutes when you go around the store searching for items plus guests asks you questions where things are so you get interrupted. one of the LOD members was telling me to go faster in a rude way and also asked me to do an OPU order also. I was struggling to find some items on the floor and she said that “ugh you’re going to make me miss the order” in a rude tone. She was giving me attitude through out the day and I had enough, I felt like she was talking about me or giving me looks all day. I was just done by the end of the day and she made me cry and I had an awful day at work today. I have no idea what to do.
Oh boy, where to start?
I haven’t posted since I worked at Tarshit way back in ye olde 2014 and I couldn’t help but laugh at all the old shit I posted. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I still think what I experienced there was godawful but it’s hilarious and unbelievable how much shit I put up with from the ignorant-ass customers to the shitty LOD/GSA’s or whatever you call ’em (why can’t we just call them managers??). My anxiety was high as fuck back then, too, so everything really took a toll on me. Anyway, this is super late news, but I am proud to share that the target of East Roswell had closed in January 2017. And good riddance!! Reading my posts brought back so many memories.
I started work in November 2017 in Food Ave, our store had a Starbucks and Pizza Hut Express in it. I had 5 years of previous experience working in fast food and deli jobs, so this was really easy work to me. I was always told I was doing a really good job and my ETL gave me lots of free frapps or whatever for nothing really. In March 2018 they offered me a promotion to work as a Food Assistant, which I happily signed and started training. I was trained on hardlines, cull, adscense, ordering, almost everything. The only thing I needed to finish training was Starbucks barista certification.
But then the LOD who directly oversaw the food and bev departments was fired.
I’m getting really tired of guests complaining about items they’re ordering not being in absolutely perfect condition. This is why you should do your own shopping so your lazy ass can inspect it yourself. What follows is the usual conversation that follow an order pickup up for most large furniture or cabinetry.
Like the title says if you make the desperate and unfortunate choice to work for Target do NOT EVER learn Guest Services. It’s not worth it. It’s not worth the shitty excuse for training, it’s not worth the aggravation, and it’s most definitely not worth the stress of juggling so many things alone with pretty much zero help. With that being said allow me to paint you all a picture of exactly what happened to me yesterday on one of my oh so thrilling shifts.
Just want to let everyone know that their is life after Tarshit. I left after they “ did away” with the POG team as we knew it. It was the best decision I ever made. I now have a full time job at Amazon for $15 an hour. After almost 7 years at Tarshit life goes on.
Coming from the perspective of someone who worked for Target Mobile at 5 different stores in my district for 2 years, and has friends and family who have worked for Target for 4 years, 7 years, and 15 years — I can sum up everything I’ve ever learned about Target in three words: ‘Target goes on’
And what I mean by that is Target is a poorly managed mess of a company that lets babies die, and dreams break, so that it may live!
So, my schedule for two weeks had dropped to only two day for that week. I wondered why. Well our motherfucking STL over scheduled the week before, but you’d think he would over schedule us. NOPE. The mfer over scheduled in softlines and decided to cut from Cafe. How the fuck is that fair? If you over schedule in soft lines do cuts from softlines. #NewSTL
