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.
I never thought I’d end up here, since I thought my Target was such an awesome store and different from the rest. After being there almost 3 months, I learned I was horribly mistaken. Where do I even begin.
I’m moving to Hawaii from California and I would like to know if my pay is going to change? I make a dollar and 50 over minimum wage in California which is $12. I need to fill out important tax and such information and neef to know if my wages will change when I move?
- The level of unprofessionalism and disrespect doesnt even brush the surface of being human.
Oct. 2016- hired as GSA…had my doubts but needed a job. Lesson Learned.
Bathroom Break- soon as I clocked in for my shift. all mgt. Waiting at Starbucks for their drinks before a mtg. HEY…GET OVER THERE HELP THEM OUT. yells at me…
I was scheduled 6-2:30 in shipping. As usual, we had no orders. They keep saying we’re getting 800+ orders, etc but it never happens. I have been in this department since Oct 31, 2016.
So 8:00 rolls around, and we are DONE. Nothing to pick, nothing to pack, and 4 people scheduled for the majority of the day. I know what is coming…they will come “steal us” and put us in Flow, or on the floor.
I have been working as a cashier for about 7 months now. I am getting anxiety and mental health issues. Some of my coworkers are rude and bossy with me. Some are amazing and sweet and make Target a great place to work. But really co workers is not the real problem. The real problem is the horrible guests with nightmare attitudes. So many of them are condescending and picky. They are quick to anger if you accidentally don’t bag something there way or goodness forbid there card declines and it is somehow my fault.
I started as a Backroom TM October 2015. Promoted to BR Team Lead March 2016.. BIG mistake, I lasted just 6 months with all the horrible ETL’s, miserable STL and the 6 days+ in a row, never getting 2 days off in a row but every other weekend. So I demoted, and had to change stores. I lost my $3.50 bump for TL, which was expected, but found out I am making a mere $.16 more than new people being hired on??
When I first started working at target in 2012 I was a college freshman trying to make a little bit of extra money for payments. At first I couldn’t believe my luck I made a lot of new friends and all of management really seemed to take a general liking to me. This was most likely because at the time I was getting multiple red cards a day. Slowly though they started realizing that at some moments throughout my shift I could be seen at electronics talking to a friend or while up at the service desk I would make a joke.
So one day I come into work in the afternoon and I am told to zone toys, which is a little odd since that’s usually what we do on closing shifts. So I’m zoning toys and there are a lot of team members around me, some I don’t recognize. Eventually someone comes over to me and tells me there are people here from other stores to help us get back into shape from the Black Friday disaster, and they say the DTL is here too.
