Let me start by saying I have been at target for a little more then a month. Everything was good. All though now that i think about it there seems to be only four old cashiers every other one has been there as long as me.
So I had the classic Target experience that many of you have shared (no training, pushing red cards way too much, horrible hours, crappy leaders, bad organization of the company). I started in late May 2016 as a cashier and of course because of all the previous listings I quit about a month later (no 2 weeks notice-quit on the spot). However I JUST got an email saying I have an unclaimed paycheck.
Got hired, hate it. Can’t switch positions or to another Target because I’m under that insanely stupid 90-day policy that only benefits Target. Looking into quitting before I can fulfil the 90 days.. sure, I’ll taint my name, but it’s gotten so bad that I don’t care anymore.
I was hired immediately after I applied. Literally the day after I sent my application to them online, I was called for an interview (I expect because of the high turnover rate). I both verbally acknowledged to the HR rep, a TL, and an LOD that I was applying for a part-time position and wanted to work no more than twenty-five hours max, as well as having written that in my availability sheets (I’m currently in college).
Well I am here to tell you how much I hate target especially store 2775! There’s so much to say about how target doesn’t appreciate their employees, but I will only say a few that stood to me. I was a perishable assistant and a leader for logistic zone, first off I had to stop going to school for a while or I wouldn’t be hired and money was needed at that time so I took it, didn’t start me off with a good pay.
I couldn’t wait to quit target to post about it so watch out because it’s a long rant. I started working at the hell hole that is target at around beginning of July and my God was applying here is a giant mistake. I got called and interviewed and started as a cashier as most of us do and as target does best they hounded me and harassed me to get red cards, breathing over my neck, coaching me, role playing, amongst other bullshit and no your little incentive of Starbucks or little bag of goodies doesn’t make me more compelled to get red cards so fuck off.
Hello everyone, I am Alex who worked at a Target.
I was hired during the summer of 2015 and when the hiring manager asked me my availability I said “Open to close, but once school starts my hours will need to be cut”. Sadly the hiring LOD had wax in her ears when I said this.
I’m a back room team member at our location. Recently I came in to close, not knowing what I was walking in to. The TL tells me as he’s about to clock out: “Oh yeah, check for online orders would ya?” I look and there’s 8 orders, as much as 4 hours overdue.
Honest question, if you paid anyone who got a red card (insert dollar amount…$25?) wouldn’t most of this red card bullshit go away? I don’t know how to run a business, but wouldn’t everyone basically win with a deal like that?
It’s summer down here in Southern California. Temperatures are well within the 95’s. On good days it’s around 84-85. I can tell you right now this is a rant so rant [ON]
