To the tune of the cult of personality. (I was threatened by 4 people I still work with, corporate is the devil, pass the love. Don’t fall into this cult.)
Look in my eyes
What do you see
It’s the cult of targenality.
I’m backroom team and I can’t cope
I’ll threaten you. It is no joke
I’m the cult of targenality
Like the devil with brutality
I’m the cult of targenality
So I let my boyfriend convince me to apply for target when he got hired on and they called me for an interview and they basically told me that I was shit. They said they wanted the “perfect fit” for target and that I just wasn’t cutting it and then proceeded to tell me other job options and to try again for target. Got me so fucked up.
Got hired, hate it. Can’t switch positions or to another Target because I’m under that insanely stupid 90-day policy that only benefits Target. Looking into quitting before I can fulfil the 90 days.. sure, I’ll taint my name, but it’s gotten so bad that I don’t care anymore.
I have had a lot of health problems within my life, so most recently I lost a lot of hearing. 75% hearing loss, and I can only hear out of one ear with the low 75% hearing loss, other deaf forever. So I got that fixed somewhat by a audiologist to raise hearing aids to the max level, so I can hear a lot better but I have tinnitus ringing fuzzy of voice, music, and anything else.
I am a seasonal worker at T2056. I have several years of experience in customer (omg sorry guest) service. I started at T2056 aroubd the second week of Oct. 2015 and I must say this is the worst place to work for anyone who is expecting to advance.
This is going to be a long rant, sorry. Strap in!
So, a little background. I’m a very anxiety filled person (as my username may make obvious) and working retail is the worst mistake I ever made.
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
Note that this legit is not happening to me but is happening to a co-worker of mine instead. Years ago my co-worker had the Target Redcard (the credit card one) and defaulted on it before they ever became a Target employee. They were having financial troubles at the time thanks to the housing market crisis that took place across the good ol’ USA (thanks banks for screwing the little man over yet again with that [whole other topic however]!). So they defaulted on the red card and eventually the debt was paid off fully. Keyword being fully here, guys. A little more than a year ago this person became a Target employee. Not more than about 2 weeks ago now a letter was sent to the store regarding this default that took place years before they ever became an employee at Target. First red flag. Shouldn’t this kind of personal mail be sent to your home address and not your business’ address, even though it comes from the company at which you are an employee? The letter states that about 25% of his paychecks will be garnished to pay off this debt, which by the way was already paid off years before he ever became employed there. It also stated that if they want to refute the company’s actions or even the said debt itself, they must hire a private attorney.
Let me just start by saying if you read my earlier posts on this site, I really didn’t hate any higher ups. In fact, I looked up to them and one day wanted to be them. When I first read this site, I couldn’t imagine how any managers or workers could be so awful to all of you. And I’m so sorry for doubting you guys. Today I think is the day I’m job hunting. It’s been a long seven months and I’ve watched my brand new target go from something I was so proud to be a part of to something only nightmares could conjur up. Over the past few months, my STL has become a prick. Honestly, I feel like everyone higher up actually. But the funny thing is, they’re only pricks to MY team. I don’t get why instocks has to be the bitch of the store and take on the workload of so many teams, but we do. And of course they’ll be the hardest on the trainer right? Guess who that would be. Me. When the TL isn’t around, ohhhhh they come to me.
So I’ve worked at an Australian Target for the past 2 years and let me tell you it’s been hell from the start of my first shift.
I never decided to actually post about this hell hole until now, however I frequently scroll through here before my shifts to make me feel like my anger towards going to work and dealing with all the shit thrown at me is shared, which makes me feel slightly less alone about my hateful thoughts and feelings towards this place.
