Hello all! Newish cashier here. Things have been stressful since I started but have been able to deal with it. Very limited training, bad training, and throwing me to the wolves way too early on cashier. However we have a loss prevention guy who has an attitude and started to talk down to me when I first started. Are loss prevention leads considered supervisors? This guy got on my case the first week on cashier duties and passively aggressively accused me of being on my phone. I am old school and hate my cell phone so never on it at work. I had to take a few weeks off for a very bad family emergency but returning and wondering what at the best ways to handle these strong personalities? Do I stand my ground and let them know I don’t take crap? Will that get me in trouble if I do it in a nice way? Do I just need to take his bullshit and try not to let it get to me?
In March of 2017 I officially became an employee of Target corporation in an unspecified location within FL with my tenure ultimately coming to a conclusion in July of 2017 as I was specifically hired a seasonal where I would rotate between working on the floor and registers you see.
How is Modernization working for you? Are you getting your push done, go backs put away, price change done, keeping fitting room free of go backs? I think, Target is expecting 1 person to do the work of 3 people. District is expecting all push done on a daily basis, all tables folded perfecting all day long, fitting room free of go backs. There is no understanding from District in why we can get everything done. How can an employee keep the floor zoned up when 1 Guest unfolds almost every shirt on a table? I wish Corporate and District worked in stores.
As a former employee I can tell you right now what the problem is based upon pictures and news. When I worked at target they had windows xp in 2009. Later on in 2014 they finally upgraded to Windows 7. I’m thinking that registers refused to work because microsoft kept sending Windows 7 will end support on January 4th 2020. So yeah, because target is so far behind on windows, that’s the biggest reason why there register systems didn’t work. So target, upgrade to windows 10 already! Get your IT guys in the server rooms stat!
I started writing stories about my bad experiences at Target. I thought it may be funny to share some of them here. If this isn’t allowed please delete.
The Price Change Lady
As we all know at Target cashiers or “checkout advocates” as they’re now called are given the authority to override price changes that are within $20. That is as long as they are deemed reasonable. As you can imagine this leads to some people abusing the system. But the person I will describe here took it to an entirely different level. So gather round folks and grab some popcorn as I regale you all with a tale. A tale of someone’s who’s cheapness is matched only by her ratchetness.
I am having trouble figuring out the adjacency for Men’s. I have asked for HR not to schedule me in adjacency but team leads say that I can not do that. I have to do the adjacency. I hate it. Does anyone else having problems with adjacency?
Target Cafe is arguably the worst job in the whole store and probably not for the reasons any no food team members would think. But bear with me…
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.
