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.
it was halloween night and the store was pretty much dead, i work in cafe and was just chatting with some of my coworkers who work on the floor and someone from starbucks wanted their hat back that i gave to this girl, on my way to get it and give it back to starbucks,
the closing night manager named “Craig” started walking over to us, maybe like 4 of us in a group standing at a register and he started yelling at us for standing and doing nothing. Keep in mind we all have our radios on us and not one person asked for assistance, i also did not work in the same department as any of them.
HERE’S SOME GOOD ASS TEA Y’ALL !!
So I’ve been working at target for a horrendous 6 months now solely because I am a broke college student needing to pay rent. It has been a tumultuous 6 months where I have gotten the worst humanity has to offer. I may not be the best with attendance because I have mental health problems that cause me to miss shifts sometimes. I do not let it impede on my productivity because I care for my coworkers and not Target itself.
Antyways, one example of how ridiculous this place is: we had a person work at Starbucks, and they would show up intoxicated or bring alcohol in a bottle to drink at work.
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!
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.
