So I worked for target in a hardlines position for a good 3 months only to be fired two days before my ninety days was up. While California is an at will employment state they don’t need a reason. They need even less while in your ninety days. From day one my boss had a vendetta against me. She consistently gave me three departments to cover usually toys hba and sporting goods. Toward the end of my shift she would bring everyone over to point of things I did wrong and have everyone fix my horrible zone. When she fired me i asked for a reason why and she gave me the arbitrary reason of “I just feel like this job isn’t a good fit for you.” later do I find out that my executive team lead didn’t even know she wanted to fire me and that HR said if she wanted me gone she would have to be the one to do it.
So, I’m new to this site and I wanted your opinions on this situation my fellow coworkers and I are in.
I honestly don’t know where to start. Judging by the post title you already get somewhat of an idea about what this post is going to be about. Well, I want to say about several weeks ago they had hired a new GSTL for our Target to help out with guest service and watch lanes. Here’s where the issue comes in, I have friends that work in that area and chat with them on a daily basis; they have told me these past few weeks that the new GSTL has been giving them problems. They’ve already reported her to HR and told them that they can’t stand her attitude. Well, judging she is pregnant I’d say her hormones are up and down, give her some time. No. They don’t give her time, they complain to the point where they have HR move her to Starbucks. WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU MOVE A PREGNANT WOMEN TO STARBUCKS?!! That’s the question I want answered… Worst of all they make her the new team lead. Do they not know they the team lead has to do heavy lifting and operate machinery in the back to get product off the pallets? What in their right mind would make them come to that stupid conclusion. I thought, “Oh, maybe they just want to have someone over there for now until she takes a LOA or until they get a new team lead for us.” Yatta yatta yatta… Come to think of it, wouldn’t it be unhealthy for the baby and her for being over there. We are under a lot of stress on a daily basis, and I do not want her to stress out right before she has it. I just want her to be safe. I can careless about her attitude and how she is going to run things. Should I or should I not bring this up with HR and see the reasoning behind this. What do y’all think? I’m so over Target and their stupid decision making.
I could also go on about other stuff but I’ll save those other stories for another rainy day…
