Oh boy, where to start?
I haven’t posted since I worked at Tarshit way back in ye olde 2014 and I couldn’t help but laugh at all the old shit I posted. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I still think what I experienced there was godawful but it’s hilarious and unbelievable how much shit I put up with from the ignorant-ass customers to the shitty LOD/GSA’s or whatever you call ’em (why can’t we just call them managers??). My anxiety was high as fuck back then, too, so everything really took a toll on me. Anyway, this is super late news, but I am proud to share that the target of East Roswell had closed in January 2017. And good riddance!! Reading my posts brought back so many memories.
I started work in November 2017 in Food Ave, our store had a Starbucks and Pizza Hut Express in it. I had 5 years of previous experience working in fast food and deli jobs, so this was really easy work to me. I was always told I was doing a really good job and my ETL gave me lots of free frapps or whatever for nothing really. In March 2018 they offered me a promotion to work as a Food Assistant, which I happily signed and started training. I was trained on hardlines, cull, adscense, ordering, almost everything. The only thing I needed to finish training was Starbucks barista certification.
But then the LOD who directly oversaw the food and bev departments was fired.
I’m getting really tired of guests complaining about items they’re ordering not being in absolutely perfect condition. This is why you should do your own shopping so your lazy ass can inspect it yourself. What follows is the usual conversation that follow an order pickup up for most large furniture or cabinetry.
Like the title says if you make the desperate and unfortunate choice to work for Target do NOT EVER learn Guest Services. It’s not worth it. It’s not worth the shitty excuse for training, it’s not worth the aggravation, and it’s most definitely not worth the stress of juggling so many things alone with pretty much zero help. With that being said allow me to paint you all a picture of exactly what happened to me yesterday on one of my oh so thrilling shifts.
Just want to let everyone know that their is life after Tarshit. I left after they “ did away” with the POG team as we knew it. It was the best decision I ever made. I now have a full time job at Amazon for $15 an hour. After almost 7 years at Tarshit life goes on.
Coming from the perspective of someone who worked for Target Mobile at 5 different stores in my district for 2 years, and has friends and family who have worked for Target for 4 years, 7 years, and 15 years — I can sum up everything I’ve ever learned about Target in three words: ‘Target goes on’
And what I mean by that is Target is a poorly managed mess of a company that lets babies die, and dreams break, so that it may live!
So, my schedule for two weeks had dropped to only two day for that week. I wondered why. Well our motherfucking STL over scheduled the week before, but you’d think he would over schedule us. NOPE. The mfer over scheduled in softlines and decided to cut from Cafe. How the fuck is that fair? If you over schedule in soft lines do cuts from softlines. #NewSTL
I have been with this company for about 4-5 years. This was a great job till “MODERNZATION” came into play. This is my list of what I do on a daily basis:
So I transferred to this store because we were moving, I was excited for a fresh start instead of my last useless store who treated me like poo. At first it was nice, and it’s like everyone was absolutely rude to me. I transferred as a GSA. The GSTL was excited she didn’t have to train me, but I didn’t know their store and some how that didn’t click with anyone.
I found this site after getting fired from Target after working a week since I was so angry and wanted to find somewhere to spew my hatred for what they did to me and after a long wait, I finally tell my story.
Ok so I was desperately looking for a job near my college campus for easy commuting in December so I applied to the Target near there since they were hiring at the time and the city had a lot of working opportunity.
