Alright, so here’s the gig. I was hired back in July at a store in Aurora Colorado and I gotta say: FUCK THIS GOD DAMN JOB.
I was hired for full time in tech, and at first I was excited, but by the second week, I had aged 3-5 years, easily. My experience has been nothing but a collection of passive aggressive half wits who are in charge of the store, or their respective departments. The girl who is in charge of soft-lines and tech is almost NEVER to be seen. Even though on my first day she told me she would be there to assist me with tune in on Mondays. One of the biggest wastes of time, by the way.
I’m 19, from WNY and I work at one of the targets in the area. Not only do they pile tasks on top of tasks I never get a thank you for all the shit I do. I can knock out a flat and three U boats, zone and do reshop and I never get a thank you. Never, people at my location call off multiple times a week and I’ve called off three times this month. I suffer from bipolar disorder and anxiety and I’ve been super sick with the flu.
Through all the shit I had to deal with at my target location, I was only there for about 3 months ( my 90 days), and let me tell you being a manger SUCKS. We were responsible for literally everything in front end. I had no access to Cash Office so on the days when I was alone I was left with no extra money for the front of store, and a lot of angry guests due to me having to close down registers.
Thank God I finally got the fuck out of the hellhole’s anus’ hemorrhoid which is…Target fucking Corp. But now they have fired my partially disabled friend for basically having a disability. Fuuuuuck them. I wish we could enact revenge on these assholes somehow. I thought about unzoning an entire store or “accidently” breaking shit but that really only hurts the employees. Maybe go and pile a whole bunch of meat in the bottom of a cart and shop backwards putting a bunch of clothes and shit on top. Then just leave it in Softlines. That ought to hurt ’em a bit. But, my better judgement takes over. I just wish we could punish these fucking dickwads so hard, but legally and with integrity.
Been employed with Target for a couple of months, and it’s honestly become a chore already. I don’t mind the hard work,but the pay should be higher to match the amount of the work they expect us to have done. The whole “Dedicated Business Owner” mantra should be reflected in the hourly wage as well. Their expectations are way too high,and the leaders believe in criticism over motivation.
About to hit a month of being brought on and already feel like I’ve been at this job for a decade. I can’t believe I ever thought this company was any good; their at Wizard of Oz level with making the general public believe their honest and wholesome.
I was actually excited to start work. I thought that for once I was going to be at a job that I enjoyed and how awesome it was going to be able to save money and pay down my debt, go back to school.
I am not a naive person, I consider myself a realist. But I was still smacked upside the head with the level of fuckery at this job. I’ve worked retail for almost 15 years. I been in some real hell holes and again was taken aback.
2 years back I joined Target trying to pay back my student loans. Stupid I know, but I was desperate and I just can’t image myself working in Walmart.
Little did I know working as hardlines/salesfloor would literally DRAIN MY SOUL AWAY. This is my list of what I do on a daily basis:
This is going to be very long story about my experience working at the hell hole call Target. Basically I was hired at Target for 4 years ago I was supposed to be part of the food Truck team. Well to be honest it wasn’t really a team and only consists of me, this dude name Danny, and this old guy named Fred. Like we was all cool with one another but the food trucks are on some morning was has really big and we went to our supervisors and tell them that you know this is too much work for all three of us so instead they never gave us any help and some people would help once they shift it was over and help but for like 30 minutes to an hour but I mean you know that’s at least it was something.
I came to work everyday even Early some times… One I got sick my eyes was swollen so I called 3 hours before my shift no answered the phone so when I went back to work I showed them how many times I called my lod said she put it down as a no call no show when I called a million times… A week later my daughter got sick I left 1 hour early and the next day I didn’t go in because my daughter was still sick take in mind my daughter is 4 years old she my baby she comes first period… When Monday came and I got to work they waited until my 6 hour shift was over to tell me I’m fired… I worked for Walmart missed one day and didn’t get fired… Target is horrible company and I will never work for them again period..
I’m on mobile, so sorry for formatting (if that even applies?)
I started working in target back about 3 months ago. This job was not intended to be permanent. AT ALL. I was applying for government jobs and by the grace of all that is holy finally got an interview and a job. I went to put in my two weeks today and my LOD told me she wanted to “check the schedule” two weeks ahead. At this point I’m confused but I let her check it. She then informs me that I work a Saturday that’s 2 weeks and one day from now. Confused again, I say “Ok, and?” She says I cannot quit because the schedule is already written, but not posted.
