I’ve been working at target for a year and a half and Im so done ! I started on the flow team , then moved to pog a few months after that and that was a fucking horrible decision. First of all I got thrown in at a really busy time so of course I’m gonna fuck stuff up when im left to figure it out on my own but then get in trouble afterwards even if I ask for help instead of anybody even attempting to show me the right way to do anything.
After four and a half years, I put in my two weeks notice.
It was a good run, some great people, shame it was bogged by bad management.
The feeling of venturing to my new job is unlike anything.
I live in a fairly rich city, so almost all the “guests” are snobby, short, and snippy with me. The other day I had some crazy lady with her screaming baby bite my head just because I was “socializing” with the lady before her while I was ringing her up, you know, doing my JOB.
My roommate and I worked for Target during our move into our new house…we went into HR and did our address change with Mary, a few months later we were cut down to 8 hours a week..so we found better jobs..now Target is holding our w2’s hostage…claims they were mailed to our old address…..bs, either Mary lied then or Target is lying now…either way Target is trying to extort $40 from us for our w2’s..we contacted the IRS and filed complaints…
Long story short… We lost our good hr woman and gained a bitchy girl that doesn’t even pretend to want to do her job.
I’ll call this little bitch Lori lol close enough… Anyway, she started working as our store’s Hr person (not a manager / just hr computer person aka sots there and does nothing) a few months ago and ever since she started shes had a fucking attitude and a resting bitch face.
Got sent home early from work One day after getting in trouble for doing my job.
The owner of this company obviously doesn’t understand, or even know what the concept of the chain of command is.
A person CAN NOT efficiently work for two bosses giving them two different directions.
I have been keeping my eye on this website for quite some time now, and since I finally quit Target I can share my story.
I was employed with Target for almost 5 years. I started off on the sales-floor the first year. Then I learned the operator. Then about 2 years later they asked me if I would be interested in doing the visual adjacencies and that’s what changed everything for me.
I quit two days ago I was called into the store managers office with the assistant manager. I was basically in trouble for using my cartwheel on my phone to help with discounts for guests. I was told I wasn’t allowed to use it for guests and that I was breaking company rules. I was told that if guests don’t get the cartwheel app I can’t help them.
I was in the break room eating my lunch with the logistics team, when my ETL brought in a visitor to talk to us. He was a man representing Untied Way. If you can’t pay your rent, or make enough to eat, this organization will help you do so. Not a single person in the room makes enough to put food on the table. He informed us that if we needed help, please come visit their head quarters in town. United Way is aware that most of us are going hungry. The worst part, Target knows, and has authorized United Way to come into their stores to compensate for the low wages and poor hours.
I’m the kind of person that almost never gets sick. In the less than 3 months I’ve been working at Target I’ve been sick 3 times, which is normally how often I get sick in a YEAR! Even worse than the attitudes are the illnesses and germs our “guests” bring through our lanes.
