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

    Should have read this all first

    When I accepted the job at Target I was completely excited.

    I was hired as a lead and encouraged by the conversations during the interview process.

    Several months later I’ve come to the conclusion that it is a cult.  You have to learn “Target speak.”  Everything has an acronym and is measured in Red, Yellow or Green.  Should you not adhere to the cult rules you are either exiled (fired) or pushed to the point that your only hope is escape.

    There is a reason that management is relatively young.  It’s easy to manipulate inexperienced, immature people fresh out of college and mold them to believe you are the God of all retail and business.

    The scariest thing, next to “you must learn Target speak,” that I was told by my ETL was, “you’ll do much better if you just drink the Kool-Aid.”  Seriously!
