Worked at target some years ago, but re reading some stories made me want to share my horrible experience with Target HR. Keep in mind this is the same guy in both stories.
1. The time I got sexually harassed at work.
At the time I was a 19 year old girl working in electronics . I was used to the usual creeper here and there, but I never expected it from a co worker. Now this guy worked for Target mobile and was about 45 at the time, and with a son about my age.
I started working at Super Target in Lee’s Summit, MO 2 weeks ago. I was informed today at the start of the morning that I was getting moved from seasonal to full-time, days. I said okay. I haven’t missed a day nor have I ever been late. I’ve never refused to stay late to help them close either. I was always on task, 100% of the time. I came in at 5 in the morning. On different days I stayed until 1:30 in the morning. It didn’t surprise me I was getting moved to full-time, how many people are willing to get paid $9.00 an hour and work any varied monkey shift you throw at them?
Then, about 2 pm, another manager told me the 29th would be my last day. I said, oh really, what is going on? He said, well, you know, when you were hired you were hired as seasonal and that is ending. I said, okay, but today another manager told me I was going full-time, days. He said, well, um here, Derek in HR gave me this letter to give you. I said, ok, and opened it up. It just said the 29th was my last day and thanks for all your hard work, it was a form letter. It didn’t give a reason for termination. I said to the guy, come on, be straight with me, never missed a day, never late, what gives? The guy just started making awkward sounds with his voice, which I instantly read to be “I know but I can’t tell you”. I didn’t throw a fit and went back to work for the remainder of my shift.
