Here’s a story about Store 1374
I was hired May of last year. I hadn’t had a job in 6 months and desperately needed a job. At first it was great. My team was great and seemed to be family. Much to my dismay I disliked the way the TL talked to the team members and entitled ladies who worked there for 15-20 years. (why? ) I was trained by an awful woman who bossed me around the entire time. I was originally in softlines. Which by the way Store 1374 is on the border of MA and RI. The traffic was awful and slammed nonstop. I spent months working in softlines only to constantly have over flowing reshop carts and fitting room attendant who never seemed to be doing any real work but sauntering around and talking to guests. The Salesfloor ETL constantly seemed in a bad mood. After Christmas more towards spring I asked to Cashier more since my softlines team seemed VERY clique-y. They can all laugh and when I ask questions they just stare at me. I felt personally targeted. My HR ETL was kind enough to give me more shifts. But once she left Target I was completely removed from softlines and only cashiered. Every shift was 7-9 hours almost 35 hours a week all closing. I’d come home and be so fucking exhausted. I had knots in my feet. Once I went to cashiering the GSETL seemed to have it out for me. I have IBS and had no issues when I was on the floor to use the bathroom. But now being upfront she seemed to keep sending her GSTL to constantly time me in the restroom. Which caused one of the 900 reasons they tried to write me up. Had a guest complain I picked a wedgie in an aisle WHILE NOT EVEN ON THE CLOCK IN A BACK AISLE I SAW NO ONE IN. Was written up claiming I was dressed inappropriately when I wasnt on several occassions. (I have g cup chest and no matter what I wear I have slight cleavage) even tho my outfit was always appropriate. Had the GSTL write me up for being on the phone when she is ALWAYS on her phone everywhere in the store. ACTUALLY all the managers are on their phones constantly.
My final straw is when my GSETL tried to write me up for leaving work after asking to leave when I WAS VERY CONGESTED AND COUGHING. the LOD said he talked to the GSETL and said I could go. Saying I left work 6 hours early from my shift. Also I’m always late. I’m never late. I usually come in 15 minute early. It’s not my fucking fault the Kronos system they use doesn’t allow you to clock in before your break.
All I did was worked myself to death. It wasnt worth it. After she tried to write me up I threw the write up at her and walked out. I’ll be valued some where else. The evil red eye wont be bothering me anymore.
Sadly my fiance is the PA Assistant. He is constantly stuck in the freezer doing bitch work. His ETL treats him like trash including going as far as making him constantly uncomfortable and making him feel like his job is always at odds.
I loved my team.
But the managers there need to sort themselves out.
