I am a team member of about 7 months now, a very hard worker, always kiss LODs asses, etc. I just called my store at 10 pm to tell them that I will not be able to be there in the morning. I am scheduled to work at 6 am and we are told to call 2+ hours before our shift starts, but no one is there to answer the phone UNTIL 6 am. And whenever someone calls out that early, they get mad. So I called ahead of time – trying to be considerate.
Theee worst company to ever work for. It’s corporate that has all these new policies and they did it to eliminate positions because now they have to compensate for those raises. They made themselves look good to the public, they needed something after the trans gender bathroom issue when people said they would stop shopping there. They wanted to look good so people had positive thoughts about them, it was all a publicity move. so in order to compensate for the raises they redid their policies and store positions and now we all have to do the work of 3 people. They bully, they discriminate and they play favorites. The management sucks and the work is overwhelming and corporate doesn’t give a shit about any of it, they just want money.
So I was told my store and district was one of the few going through this test so this might spread elsewhere. If you work Flow team and Pog team you might want to read. Both teams are being removed. The team members on both teams are being moved to sales floor. Here’s the kicker. Those former team members Now will be coming in at 6 and 8 am depending on your department.
I got hired as a seasonal employee at the beginning of November at the target in Fullerton (1418), and the only thing that was open was the flexible fulfillment, which is just the Ship team, so I accepted the job thinking it was going to be good. We had about 7 or 8 people in the beginning since a lot of online orders were dropping. After new year’s, we only had a team of 3 people and some other worker, who wasn’t our boss, always on our ass about everything , giving us impossible deadlines.
Current employee at target for almost 3 years my job is softlines/fitting room and now my store manager wants to get rid of carts which we use to put stray in from the service desk and take it to the fitting room so I can sort it. She wants too small z racks and had another team member rolling around and put stray away.
I’ve been working for Super Target for nearly a year, and the experience has been laughably atrocious.
I can’t think of anywhere else to go with this because if I talk to HR they’ll just cut my hours so low I’ll be forced to find another job( and I need the income or I’m out of a home, the job market in Florida is scarce, you get the idea) so here it goes.
To say that management is negligent is putting it lightly. I could go on about every single experience I’ve had that’s crossed the line, but no one would read that so here’s a good example.
So I started working at target in August of 2015. Well I was pregnant with my son and they had me doing freight. I was having to unload the truck lift all the boxes and everything. I talked to the store director and seen if I could change to cashier. Well she let me. So everything was going good. Before I had my son they had me doing $ spot all day. So I go on maternity leave and I get back and they still have me doing $ spot. So I’m doing that and around August of 2016 they had me coming in when freight would come in and stock $ spot and do the go backs.
Why is it ok for a group of 6 to 12 members of management to take daily breaks for 30 to 45 minutes and tell us it’s a meeting when questioned? When I walk by and hear laughing and stories. Guests comment that there is no one on the floor to help because they are all up front having coffee. Isn’t this time clock fraud?
I have been working for Target for a little under 5 months. I work softlines, but “my” area is JAL (which, in my store, is lingerie, sleep, activewear, and accessories). When I started, there were two of us in JAL, now there is just me. I was trained by a coworker and not an LOD or TL. Fuck it, whatever. She taught me everything she knew and did the best she could. I survived Black Friday, I survived New Year’s, but swim season may just do me in.
So I’m now a former employee of Target Store 1371 which is in Rock Hill, SC. I got fired because I didn’t show up for work three days in a row, which I was unconscious in a hospital having seizures and target fired me just a few days ago and they leave a voicemail on my phone and I don’t find out until I listen to it which is a few days afterwards.
