I have long been gone from target. Two months out of target wooo!!! But a lot of my friends still work for target so I get the latest gossip and of course I come here to share it so here’s a story.
TL we will call her Aly. Great team lead always got everything done no matter how bad it was. She started as a team member then moved up to TL. She was always cool till she became a TL. The ETL over softlines basically fed her bullshit and turned her into a really rude person.
It just dawned on me why London drugs wasn’t exactly running like a headless chicken when Target decided to move up North. They were confident they had a strong loyal base.
If you look them up on Wikipedia, they like to hire competent people who know what they are doing. And company morale is high with low turn over.
Target on the other hand lol have this weird culture and seems to be awash in incompetent fools.
I have a feeling they saw through Target and their hyped up image. All bark and no bite.They were right. Target ran away after 2 years.
Had my first cartwheel experience.
Advertised price 20% off. I scanned and my items were not sale price. I asked and was told the sign says you must use the app.
Wrong, sign says message and data rates apply. Sign topper says cartwheel.
Signs do not say you must download an app, then have the Target store scan a bar code on your phone. Just another way to steal your personal information and false advertisement. I refuse to purchase anything from Target again. I will shop at CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid but not Target. The excuses I was told make no sense. Target, you screwed up.
Been with target almost a month.
1. Haven’t been put into computer to set up direct deposit. Managers blow me off whenever I ask… any other job I’ve had I’ve completed basic stuff like getting paid how I’d like before I start working!
Life as a backroom closer is a harrowing experience. You get in at 1 pm on weekdays, 2 pm on the weekends. Without fail, the Ship From Store unit needs support, because just like your department, they are a team the size of a pack of starved coyotes, which used to abound in great numbers around the seasonal time, but has slowly but surely been shaved down to near extinction.
I twisted my knee while working service desk today ( too much crap in the back…). It hurts to stand on it, so I asked my gstl if I could get a stool back there to sit on. He said there’s a rule about sitting back there. So I tried to stick it out, but pain kept getting worse so I finally talked to my LOD and explained what happened and asked if I could sit to make it through my shift. She said no and told me to go home. Why can’t I just get a stool, rather than put the stress on everyone else?!
How does everyone feel about the new procedures for Operator? It is asking a lot of an operator to answer phones, find the guest the correct size, hang clothes, help the guest around phone area.
Not a rant, just genuine confusion… would anyone have any insight as to why they schedule cart attendants to work until close (11:oo PM)??? I legitimately do nothing productive during that time and just walk around the store, I feel like me being there is very unnecessary and odd, anyone else been in a situation like this, scheduled for no reason at all?
I imagine most of the people on this site are just current or former employees airing their grievances about whatever bullshit Target did to them, but I will say I didn’t start this job hating Target. It was my first real job and it helped me gain some confidence in the workplace where I originally didn’t have any (part of the reason it took so long for me to get a job, I’m too anxious for my own good).
