Target Sucks - We Hate Target and We Know We're Not Alone.

Poop On You, Target.

That’s right, Target…poop on you. Them’s fightin’ words. I quit Target after 4 1/2 years. I mainly worked in Apparel, since I’m female and Target is sexist. 🙂 I transferred from a high-volume, do-everything-right store…to a low-volume, “What the fuck are we doing?” store. Anyways, long story short, I brought the store from consistent Red visits in Apparel to consistent Green visits. I re-trained existing employees on Brand, culture, POG and Sales Planner building, zoning, etc…. My team lead was a dude….who had NO idea what the hell he was doing. He’d done price accuracy or POG crap…or some such shit in Hardlines his whole “career”. (I put career in quotations, because anyone who considers Target their long-term employment enrichment source is smoking something). Anyways, I quit January 21st, and so obviously there was no longer anyone there to fix his fuck-up’s. Well, his visits went from good to “What the hell happened?”. He was transferred out of Apparel and back into Hardlines for being a screw up from Hell, and some other dipshit who has no idea what he’s doing has been put there instead.

I love this story because I was under-appreciated and taken advantage of while I was there. I fixed my Team Lead’s massive fuck ups for him daily, while he got pats on the back every visit by our DTL who didn’t even know my name…although I was the one rocking out with my metaphorical cock out.

Now they see what a dumbass this dude is and gave him the boot back to Hardlines. I just love it. And I love not having to ever walk back in there and see that stupid-ass Spot. Ugh…I hate that dog.

    My friend is an asshole, so he got me a target gift card that had the Lego Spot dog thing in it. I built the dog, now I'm trying to decide if I want to burn and melt it, or explode it. Sometimes life just hands you these tough decisions. Don't worry, either way the video will go up on the site. 🙂

    I know exactly how you feel, I work in the backroom currently at target and I have to keep everything back there running smoothly because we have a good for nothing team lead who can't do a fucking thing. He sits around all day, and even coached me the other day for something so trivial. Target doesn't even know how to run a business, I've been in my business class for like two weeks and I can see that they do nothing right.

    First off, Target is sexist but it depends on what store you are at to determine which way it swings. At my store, women don't lift heavy things and don't throw the trucks. The unload times are solely based on how fast the men can unload. We have one lady TM, that started 3 months ago, in the backroom with us and she is the only one they have asked to move up. Most likely because she has 2 BS under her belt and that is the only reason I can provide. The TL and ETL make a huge deal about how good she is and yet her pull times and back stocking times are not as good as mine. She refuses to work receiving because she hates it, she complains about everyone and even resorts to name calling, only works one side of the stock room (Market - the easy one), refuses to reset shelving, runs over people with the WAVE and talks to everyone like she is a boss. The sad thing about this, this is her first job, she has only been there for 3 months and she has ZERO work history/experience (Fresh out of College). I myself have 20+ years of experience and have been with Target for almost 4 years now. For the last two years I have been the go to person to ASK people to go to certain sides, coordinate the day, train and the such. She comes in and becomes a princess overnight! So again, it depends on the store you are at and which side of the sexist argument you are fighting against. May I also add that 85% of the management are women.
