Schedule you till close and then keep you 2-3 hours late, but then have you scheduled next morning!
I can’t state how many times we have closed till 1 or 2 am at our store, and have been scheduled to work a morning shift the following errrrrrrrrrrrr same day. I closed last Saturday where we do ad takedown, and we got out at nearly 2 am, then on Sunday I was scheduled for 6 am ad placement. I told the managers ahead of time that we would likely stay late, and if that was the case I would like to come in later on Sunday. They told me “There is no federal law for retail workers to have time in between their shifts, so you just have to deal with it and come in.” I expressed that I didn’t want to work without sleep and was told “You should be able to get a couple of hours rest before coming in.” which I think is a ridiculous response. Federal law or not, there should be a Target policy allowing time in between rest with shifts!!
Also, why are they keeping us so long over closing time at my store?! If I am scheduled till 11:30 pm, they don’t ASK any of us to stay late… we are basically kept hostage until they release us which sometimes is near or at 2 am.
SLAVES of TARGET no matter what race/ethnicity/or sex… they don’t discriminate on treating everyone like shit!
