I’m not kidding. The manager was named Kevin. He worked at the Target located on
- 16400 Beach Blvd, Westminster
I don’t think he works there anymore but, he made this long and uncomfortable speech where he compared me to a criminal because he THOUGHT I gave myself a discount on an 80 cent candy bar. I didn’t. He just assumed. I think the conversation costed the company more money than the candy bar itself. He wouldn’t shut up about it.
I will answer first for my store.
1. -Store Manager is under 50, 40, 30?
So just to warn you: I’m no longer a Target employee so I’m not suffering the same turmoil as you guys.
I was working in a Super Target in the Bakery. Now, it was a commonly known fact that the Bakery and the Deli shared the same team lead (is that what they’re called? they changed the terminology when I left).
How do I hate thee, let me count the ways
Target corporate, I hate thee because:
1. I spend too much time thinking, worrying and perseverating over a job that does not, think, worry or care a shred for any of its employees.
To the tune of the cult of personality. (I was threatened by 4 people I still work with, corporate is the devil, pass the love. Don’t fall into this cult.)
Look in my eyes
What do you see
It’s the cult of targenality.
I’m backroom team and I can’t cope
I’ll threaten you. It is no joke
I’m the cult of targenality
Like the devil with brutality
I’m the cult of targenality
(Long post ahead) I’ve put in my good 4 years at Target (well, 3 years 9 months) and safe to say I regret giving my time to such an incompetent store and company. I finally could not take it anymore and put in my two weeks, I am taking the promotion to guest. Today was my last day, these are just some of the things myself and others around me have experienced and expressed.
Have any other stores eliminated the morning cart attendant? My store has slowly chipped away and pushed the closing attendant to be the only scheduled usually starting at 3. So until I clock in, the restrooms are untouched, the garbage just piles up, the lot becomes a mess, and the PMT leaves before I even walk in.
My experience working at a Target store unloading trucks during holiday season compels me to voice concerns for new employees regarding safety. I will address these hazards by relating the following incidents and offer possible remedies. The managers often just throw an inexperienced employee on the unload line with no training or instructions on how to deal with these problems.
I am coming up on my one-year anniversary at Tarshit next week. I don’t plan on being there to “celebrate” it. Despite having tendered my resignation last week, I reached my breaking point last night. Things have gotten so bad I can’t even make it through another week, and I don’t think I’ll be returning.
I was working service desk 4-6tonight and at some point when the GSA was back there I asked her to get me $20s and $10s I hadn’t gotten a chance to request yet. She did so and as soon as I was done with the transaction I requested it, added it to my drawer and told the computer add money. Pretty standard. 10pm rolls around and the GSA goes ” hey, what happened to the money I gave you earlier?” I told her I put it in the drawer and requested it. ” So what happened to it?The draw is out of $10s and $20s” in a fairly accusatory tone.
