I’m a minor, just turned 17 a few weeks ago, and I recently made the mistake of getting a job of Target. I was warned not to work here but my dumbass did anyways, lesson learned. I thought I loved Target but holy fuck the moment I started working here I realised how shitty this place is. The first thing I noticed was how everyone else who works there is a lazy sack of shit, they do absolutely nothing but drink their Starbucks and hangout. I actually put effort into my work but still the people who do buttfuck nothing are praised more than I am. I have only met like three nice workers, the rest of the people are assholes. I’ve gotten dirty looks from random fuckers who I don’t even know, for absolutely no reason too. I mind my own business and just do my work and then get the hell out, but for some reason everyone there just has such a shitty attitude and give me their attitude for no reason. Nobody does shit here, leaving piles of work for me (and maybe like two other people who actually do stuff) to complete, especially reshop. The idiots who work at guest service just hang out the entire time, or they all go on break at the same time and leave the desk empty with a line of guests. I’ve found broken products and rotten groceries in the bins for reshop, which just brings me to my point about how disgusting this store is. There’s always nasty spills on the floor that nobody cares to clean up. The white floors of Target really bring out how gross the store is, if you look in the corners or where the floor meets the wall, you can see the brown gunk growing in this dirty ass store. Also the break room is always left a mess, every table has crumbs or food on it, the sink is nasty, and the floor is covered in food and stains. I fucking hate Target. And maybe this is just me, because I’m not sure if most places do this, but their 90 day rule is BULLSHIT. I am a music student with unorganised directors, I always have shit coming up or schedule changes but I can’t fucking change my availability. So I’m assuming I’ll be let go of at the end of the year or sooner (I was hired to work seasonal), despite actually putting care and effort into my work. I already had to leave my shift early once because I threw up in the bathroom, they seemed nice about it in the moment but I’m sure this will have some sort of negative effect on my reputation there. The hours and shifts at Target are bullshit, especially as someone in school, I don’t have the time or energy to spend my entire fucking day at Target. If the 90 day rule shit wasn’t a thing, everything would probably work out fine, but fuck attendance and fuck Target. I hope they let me go so I can work somewhere better, the sad part is that it hasn’t even been a month and I’m already fed up with this shit.
Was hired in late November as a part-time fulfillment worker at Target, and was trying to get some money for college. Took an online interview and made it in, was a very simple job description. On the first week was supposed to be trained by three different people on three different days. However was only trained the first day, and the other two days the people that were supposed to train me never showed up.
Kind of long, sorry. Just need to get this out.
It happened 2 weeks ago, and I’ve been honestly fuming about it ever since. I can’t believe they did what they did. I got fired for “multiple” reasons, and all minus one of them was bullshit. But hey, was only at 60 days so nothing I can do. I worked at the Starbucks in the store, though I’ve also helped with register & consumables, but I got along with almost all my team members in the cafe great. In this case probably too great, and this is the one reason I’ll own up to fucking up, we talked a lot of shit over there. I worked with all young girls, and everyone had someone they didn’t very much like in our crew. I just happened to be the one who got snitched on for the gossip.
My friend Annie worked at Target until a few days ago. Annie hung out with two team members outside of work, and one of them (Thomas), roughly pinned her down to a couch and dry humped her while he was drunk. The other team member, James, was asleep in his room and didn’t see the event take place. Annie was sober, and in a panic, disassociated from the assault and drove Thomas home. She filed a police report against Thomas and is trying to get a no-contact court order.
I’ve posted here before regarding different issues but I’m back with a new issue.
The last few weeks to my surprise have been quite nice and that’s coming from someone who can’t stop for a single second to take a break because “carts”. However, naturally weekends are always busy and I mean hectic busy. I can’t help but wonder why is it that on the most busy days we only have 1 cart attendant scheduled at a time. Well, here’s my theory surrounding this issue.
I haven’t even been a Target employee for a full month. That right there should show you how much I hate it. And it’s not unjustified either. My birthday is Thursday and even though I had it off, one of my coworkers suggested I take my availability off as well. So I did last week. What do I find when I look at my schedule today? A big fat fucking shift scheduled for– can you guess?– Thursday, June 18th. My birthday. The day my parents took off from work to drive two hours to see me. The day my boyfriend took off from work to spend the day with me forcing him to work two extra double shifts the rest of the week. When I confronted (very friendly-like too I might add) the human resources lady she told me that her hands were tied and there was nothing she could do except put my name down on the shift change sheet which is no guarantee.
I’ve been working for target for about a year now and i love this site. I’ve been reading almost every post surprised that others are going through the same problems i am. This will be my first post and hopefully be my last as i don’t plan on working at this place too much longer.
So today i got my corrective action and I’m surprised that it took so long for them to say or do anything about it. I’ve been late more than a few time and i will admit that i do have somewhat of an attitude so those are 2 things i can take accountability for but what they wrote and said to me i can’t deal with like i said in my headliner dis tew much.
Ok, this is my third post in pretty short order, but it’s so necessary. I love coming on here to vent.
I work in the backroom. If I had like a Target hit list, whoever resets planograms would be number one. The ETL that gets on our case about backstocking would be second. When they reset planograms, and fill it with new stuff, guess where the old stuff goes…the backroom. Almost every time this happens, we get a flatbed with at least 10 repack boxes full of stuff. When the ETLs come upstairs on their walk (god, I hate the walk), they see that shit and lose their minds and from then on, they’re on our case about who’s working on backstock the rest of the day as if we let the backstock get out of hand. Motherfucker! stop giving us all this plano BS to add to our normal flow, and maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.
