This website should come with a box of tissues. I’ve been scoping out this site for the past two weeks and every post sounds so miserable! I have been an Assistant Manager (not at Target) for the last 4 out of my 5 years of retail experience. So let me be the first to say, that ALMOST every post I have seen on here about the employee experience has been a self-inflicted issue. Not getting enough training? Understand managers have many hats to wear and also have a lot going on. If you need more training, you need to be firm in asking for more assistance. MAKE IT ABOUT THE CUSTOMERS, TELL THEM YOU NEED TO BE BETTER TRAINED IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CUSTOMERS HAPPY. You need to take charge of your job. If you are GOOD at your job, managers want to keep you. YOU BECOME AN ASSET. Our society has become so soft, we just let our manager or our coworkers walk all over us and THAT’S WHEN WE START HATING OUR JOB. Not getting paid enough? Do a better job, show initiative, and make people notice. If you are ALREADY doing your absolute best and your manager is aware of your talents, DEMAND YOU NEED A RAISE BECAUSE YOU DESERVE IT. Use the finding another job trick, “Well, I’ve been working so hard here and I feel like I deserve a little more than what I’m receiving. If you are unable to get me a little extra money, I’m not going to be able to keep working here much longer.” AND BELIEVE ME, if you are as good as you think you are, YOU WILL GET A RAISE and if they don’t give you one(not can’t), keep your promise and put in your two weeks notice, promptly.
Take control of your job. Do not be afraid to ask for more, if you deserve it. Do not let anyone make you feel stupid or “untrainable”. It’s your fucking life, quit complaining and get a grip.
