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

Sick of the target bs

I’m a highschooler who works at target. Starting out here, I thought it was awesome. So many others from my school work here and it is quite popular in my town. I was also impressed by the wages (although I quickly learned that it was nothing special at all). I was happy about working for target for about a month before I realized something wrong. The red cards. My god they push them so hard. I hated it. I began to get talked to about how I was not asking enough and how I needed to push it. After a few more weeks they decided I wasn’t good enough so they coached me. They took me into a conference room and went through scenarios with me to “teach” me how to do it. It’s not like I don’t know how to ask. I don’t want to. The customers hate it and get annoyed. After this i started to see all the flaws. All of the management are pricks. On the surface they are nice but once you see their true side they are Devils. I also went through a period where I was hospitalized with pneumonia and had to call in sick. I later brought a doctors note. I had missed three days and they decided that wasn’t good (mind you this was 6 months after working there). They brought me in to a conference room and talked to me about attendance and how I “hurt the team” when I’m not there. Then they threatened me with ┬átermination if I miss one more day. Well here it is. I called in sick today thanks to this influenza crap. I’m handing in my two weeks tomorrow because I don’t want to put up with their shit anymore. Here goes to a year wasted at an awful company!

    Congratulations! Target drains your energy and spirit. You are better off looking elsewhere.

    Good for you, don't out up with their crap. It is beyond ridiculous how a company can many an employee feel like they're at fault for calling out when they're sick. Before I left Tarshit I was an HR TM and had to classify people's attendance in MyTime. I remember the ETL HR writing up a food TM for calling out sick. We don't have other TMs cross trained so they had to shut down the Pizza Hut/Cafe until the next TM came in after lunch. They would have preferred a SICK TM working Cafe, spreading germs, and getting guests sick. Disgusting! But that's all Target cares about: making a dollar.
