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.
Target sucks. FUCK them. But happy anniversary to this website! 10 years now we’ve been hating on the big box of doom. Reading the stories on this site, and how common the bullshit is, amazes me that those cunts are still in business.
Hey Tarshit, Fuck You!
I found this site after getting fired from Target after working a week since I was so angry and wanted to find somewhere to spew my hatred for what they did to me and after a long wait, I finally tell my story.
Ok so I was desperately looking for a job near my college campus for easy commuting in December so I applied to the Target near there since they were hiring at the time and the city had a lot of working opportunity.
I have worked at target for quite some time now. I spent the better half of my high school career working at this hell site. I went to work with fevers, with terrible ovary pains, on 2 hours of sleep. I barely ever missed a shift, mostly because when younger workers missed a shift they would absolutely destroy them. They would call you into the back room and just annihilate your self esteem. They would blame stuff that happened that day on you not showing up, and it got so bad that kids were afraid to call in, and came to work with the flu.
So just to warn you: I’m no longer a Target employee so I’m not suffering the same turmoil as you guys.
I was working in a Super Target in the Bakery. Now, it was a commonly known fact that the Bakery and the Deli shared the same team lead (is that what they’re called? they changed the terminology when I left).
At my Target store they dont have the swap shift board posted up, you have to ask someone for it and to swap a shift you have to have the person youre swapping with with you and you both have to sign off on it in the presence of an LOD thrn they sign off on it.
So I work at store 1945, and I’ve been on flow team for a little over a year. Truck days are 6am until 4th quarter, which is pushed a couple of hours earlier to 4am.
I’m always in the departments that require the heaviest lifting, (pets, plastics/furniture.) Yet I get the smallest amount of appreciation.
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.
I worked for Target only a short time and they did me so shady because jealous trolls were mad I didn’t worship them like Gods. Don’t get mad because I called you out about your shady tactics. At least I’m free to work for a company where I don’t have to suck ass or eat shit to keep a job, fake assholes so you did me a favor.
long chunk of text coming thru. you’ve been warned.
hello. my name is fake for reasons (mainly my paranoia), but i’ve been working my 90 day probabtion (three months) at target and as of recent, i’ve realized retail is NOT for me. my friends who worked retail told me i’d hate it when i first started.
