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]
So I went to visit my old co-workers to introduce them to my newborn son (since I was pregnant while working there), only to discover my favorite team lead was fired a month ago. Why? Because he called out a few times thanks to his injured foot! Target He had an injured foot for many months (I want to say since may be November). They threatened his job if he were to have gone in a wheelchair for whatever reason. Ironically the HR ETL was in one for 6 months because she had a high risk pregnancy in the past!
This will be first of many posts. Let’s start off by saying I was hired in as a seasonal sales floor team member in November of 2014. I became known as the “closer” and got 35-40 hours a week and was pretty content with that. Then I was told that I would become a regular team member.
i am a current employe at target. does anyone know of/about ‘the walk of shame’
because i think they are gonna do that to me, and I’m afraid of going back to work.
past recent days at work have been so sketch, and i just realized how different this week has been. please, someone read this and comment
We have a sort-of-new ETL, who has picked up the schedule-making for the front end, since the previous one has moved to back room. Whatever, we all figured she couldn’t be as bad as the last one. Oh god, were we wrong.
Ive worked at target since September. This is my first job and i was so fucking excited to work there as i had liked target for a long time. I was hired in softlines. Now, let me explain my softlines training. I was put on a floor with a girl who didnt even know what she was doing. She showed me where the brands in RTW were then told me to put clothes away. Thats it. A little later that day i had my cashier training. They gave me a book, put me on the training register, and yeah. Thats it. They. Then put me on a lane with a girl that just up and left. Yes, work for tarshit and this is your training. Just a month later i was put on as operator. Worst. Job. Ever.
I already know why they arent giving me hours but still pisses me off when I think about it. So I make more than the minimum wage because of how long ive been there, 10 years.. So the new people who get paid less get all my hours. All I ask my softlines manager is to schedule me 8 hours Sundays and Mondays. But no. She will always schedule me closing shift every other night for 4 hours. Then my coworker said that she got scheduled 8 hours on Monday but she cant come in due to her availability. HELLO! Im open to work 8 hours. I told my softlines manager a million fukn times!! Also I believe they wont schedule me over 24 hours a week so they wont have to give me benefits. Smfh
Review time at Target:
“You’re a great asset to the team. You’re never late, always show up for work and always have a great attitude. I love the work you do. So, overall I rated you inconsistently effective.”
