I am about to put my notice in at Target. I’d do it sooner but I need to have another job before I do. But I have only been working there for a few months now and I literally can’t take much more.
First our HR lady screwed over my training schedule. After a week or so my shifts completely changed and I wasn’t even fully trained.
Ok first off I’ve been working at Target for two years now, ever since senior year of high school. I was supposed to get put on the softlines team, but they ended up hiring me on as a cashier. They told me that I would get moved a few months into the job. It’s been two years. Anyway.
So this is something I shared anonymously with all my coworkers before I left Target. I thought it would be fun to share it here. But I’ll give you all a fair warning that this is a VERY long one.
If there is one thing I learned from my time at Target it’s that evil can take many forms. And it takes a particularly vicious form in that of Targets executive leadership.
I’ve been working at tarshit for about a month . At my second interview I could tell that the bitch who was interviewing me didn’t like me. I feel like she didn’t want to hire me and wasnt going to but something happened so she ended up resorting to me. I originally applied for sales floor position. I hate being a cashier so bad I get depressed just thinking about it.
I was hired at target for the Flex fullfiment position, which I enjoyed and was pretty good at it (as told by an LOD herself). I worked there for about 2 months and neevr missed a shift, always came in on time, and did my job, in my opinion, better than the other flex people.
I’ve been released of my servitude from Target for a few months and now that I’m free I’m hoping someone from corporate sees this and decides to do something about it.
This isn’t about some biased opinion because I didn’t like my job, or because my bosses were mean. I’m legit concerned about the remaining staff at the location and how the manager is potentially running the place into the ground and taking a few bodies with her into the rubble.
*Sigh* Where do I even begin. Well I guess I should start off by saying I still work here because its the only job that has a good starting pay. ($11 bucks an hour for a first job when minimum wage is $8.06 in Florida Humidity is not that bad.
So, my name is Jimmy I am an African American male, underweight, (112 lB), 18 yrs old, and most of the time (when I don’t want to bike home at midnight and take an uber/lyft) I bike home to/from work (about 3 miles). I’m the new Cart Attendant at Store 12873 in Good ‘ol Redneck Pensacola, FL. I recently graduated high school with a 3.7 GPA and currently looking for a second job so I can pay for college and find a roomate.
So iv been working at Tarshit for over a year now, we are one of the many stores getting remodeled so everything has been shit. Well i work as a cashier, im surprised i haven’t quit. Iv had’guests take pictures of me, iv had one blow in my ear behind my back as i was watching self check. iv had children touch my breasts and ass. the rest is just in general stupid guest bullshit. Iv had other employees be nasty and gossip behind my back, again i had a employee take a picture of me and make working there very uncomfortable but i try my best to ignore.
Cartwheel is a NIGHTMARE for the workers, WORST IDEA EVER!! People always confuse the stores paper Ad’s with the cartwheel and its a clusterfuck!! NO you cant get 50% off on that item just because you “thought” you saw an ad for something similar online or on a tag for a misplaced item!!!
So, I was in the break room and I noticed the wall of team trainers which has my picture and name on it, which has said team trainers for years…now says “Learning Mentors” like you’d see in an elemary school…Arrrrgggghh! LMFAO!!!!! Wtf??? Is this a workplace or a F’N Kindergarten class??
