    T-2443

    I’ve worked in a Target in Atlanta Ga for five months and before I’ve worked a whole month there, I’ve hated it. I am a cashier and constantly have to move my guests to one register to another because either the magswipe readers, the pinpads, or the computer monitors do not work. Sometimes the monitors’ screen freezes or the computer reboots in the middle of a transaction!

    1 year in and starting to dislike it

    Hello peeps, i came across this site as i was googling how people felt about working in target. I decided to post here cause im 1 year into this and im starting to dislike it. it starts like this. i was hired as a seasonal member during october of 2012 and i knew i could be terminated by january after the holidays. since i needed a job badly i started talking to a few ppl  and was told to cross train to different areas to give the impression i was interested in staying.. so i did. I cross trained to planogram softlines, PTM, and some backroom, i knew hardlines, and cashiering and thoughout my seasonal time there i worked all those areas. surely in january i was offered a regular position and i was happy lol. in april they started reviews but i wasnt expecting much since i was still relatively new. one of the hardline TLs made my review (who i didnt really work with) and she started off by saying my review was tricky because i was still relatively new then she continued on to say i was a reliable member always coming in to work, picking up hrs, coming in when they needed me etc. then she burst my bubble by saying i got an IE rating (inefficiently something…)

    A day that was a play from Hell’s Playbook

    Most days I can honestly say that I get up in the morning and say to myself, “Today can’t be that bad at work.” Almost everytime I’m proven wrong. I just got in and clocked in and was ready to see what the day had in store for me. Right when I got onto the sales floor, a women ambushed me and demanded to know where the 1 inch binders were. Two things flew through my mind in a second. First, “how the hell should I know?” Second, How convienient, a woman demands something in the first five minutes. not only that, but she probably hasen’t looked for it on her own. I excused myself, and even apologized for not knowing. I should have seen the omen then but things were just going to get worse.

  • I just finished reading TargetEqualsShell’s comment and it’s like I’m looking in a mirror! I’ve almost been with Target for seven years. I’m at six right now. But the constant flak I take from Team Leads is beyond the pale. I’m originally from New York, okay? When we had jobs over there, people cussed their heads off. Cussing was part of everyday language. Now that I live in the deep south (Hades), I have spent years dumbing down my New York accent and eliminating all cusswords from my everyday vocabulary. I let loose when I get home, but I keep it clean at work.

    That’s not my problem. These TLs have such NERVE. They think they actually have legitimate power over our souls!

    LOD turned SOB

    Awhile back I was called off to the side to discuss the responsibilities of the Cart Attendant job. I know the responsibilites just fine because I’ve been doing the job for years. The GSA decided to give me a talking to because the spill stations weren’t being checked enough. I responded with something along the lines of, “all you have to do is ask.” For that I got this response, “duties that the Cart Attendants are responsibile aren’t getting done.” As if I’m responsible for five other guys when I’m not even at work.

    Sometimes working at Target is make work.

    Working as a Cart Attendant can be tolerable. Unless some high in the sky LOD is on your case. One of the worst things about working the Cart Attendant job is that supervisors and “guests” expect you to dry off the carts whenever it rains. Okay I dry them off, but get this, that isn’t even satasfactory anymore. Whenever it rains I’m hassled about putting dry carts near the isle where Starbucks is. This requires me to rearrange the entire lot of carts. Taking already dry carts near the cart pusher and repositioning them on the other side of the cart area, this of course eats up time I could be using for other things. This is just a bunch of make work. I don’t see what’s wrong with just drying the carts and putting them in any lane I choose. Besides, no matter how well I dry the carts I always get this trademark remark from the “guests” “This cart is wet.” I chuckle everytime they whine this line out like a cat that just had it’s foot stepped on. I mean they just walked through rain to get in the store and they’re suprised that there’s still water on the carts. One time I had to say this after I heard the whinging about a cart being wet, “That’s what happens when it rains,” I got the nastiest look. But seriously, I shouldn’t have to explain why rain makes things wet.

    Go fetch it.

    Target should change it’s name to Go Fetch’ It and here’s why. Working as a Cart Attendant I have to obviously do Carts but also: hangers, reshop, baskets, bringing back motorized carts, spills, wiping off carts when it rains and some other stuff that I’m forgeting. This isn’t about me whining about the Cart Attendant job it’s about what happens in the last half and hour of some shifts. Occasionaly I get asked or demanded to, get milk for Starbucks. Now in my opinion I think Food Avenue was just fine. I loved their chicken strips and popcorn. Nowdays I never shop at Starbucks. I don’t even like coffee. In my opinion it shouldn’t be in the store, it’s just a stupid fad. Anyway, Starbucks is uasually manned by two girls, until the last hour of my shift. Than they like to ask me to go get milk from them. Are you serious? Where did they get the idea that I have fifteen minutes to waste in the cooler filling up a cart with milk and whipping cream, that we almost never have. I’ve got other stuff to do. I would so love it if one of the ETL’s or LOD’s had to do that and freeze their little butts off while they’re at it.

    Get me out!

    If it wasnt for the fact that its so hard to find a job and I need to help my parents pay bills I’d be out of this damn place. I’m so sick of one certain LOD/GSTL being up my butt all the damn time about getting red cards. Sorry I’m not getting 7 like most cashiers. But I’m doing my fucking job by asking “guest” if they want to save 5 percent, which by the way is like Nothing. Also I hate most of the guest there who blame me when their shit doesn’t ring up right. Or who don’t wanna put their clothes on the belt because it might get dirty…news flash are you not gonna fucking wash it?! Oh and i hate stupid fucking cheap ass coupon ladies who are complaining that their last coupon didnt go through when their total for 10 items is only like 50 cents. Ugh so many more things I hate about working here. But these are just a few.
