So, I never really request time off. Im there when I need to be, doing my job as a cashier. Im 18 its my senior year and prom is soon. My mom is one of those people who like to be there every step of the way between choosing my dress, shoes, hair, makeup, etc.
I’m a back room team member at our location. Recently I came in to close, not knowing what I was walking in to. The TL tells me as he’s about to clock out: “Oh yeah, check for online orders would ya?” I look and there’s 8 orders, as much as 4 hours overdue.
I’ve been looking through the posts here for a while and it’s time I got some of my own anger out. I work in soft-lines at a smaller store and when I began I thought it was an okay job. I knew it wasn’t going to be great because hey, its a retail. I’ve worked there for almost a year now and it’s gotten progressively worse and I don’t think it’s gonna get better any time soon.
I already know why they arent giving me hours but still pisses me off when I think about it. So I make more than the minimum wage because of how long ive been there, 10 years.. So the new people who get paid less get all my hours. All I ask my softlines manager is to schedule me 8 hours Sundays and Mondays. But no. She will always schedule me closing shift every other night for 4 hours. Then my coworker said that she got scheduled 8 hours on Monday but she cant come in due to her availability. HELLO! Im open to work 8 hours. I told my softlines manager a million fukn times!! Also I believe they wont schedule me over 24 hours a week so they wont have to give me benefits. Smfh
Review time at Target:
“You’re a great asset to the team. You’re never late, always show up for work and always have a great attitude. I love the work you do. So, overall I rated you inconsistently effective.”
I think it’s safe to say Target has sunk to a new low. Everyday they seem to become worse and worse. I feel sorry for the mother and the family. No one deserves to go through with something like this. No parent deserves to lose their child let alone their only child. I wish the mother good luck with her lawsuit. Maybe this will shine a light on how horrible it is to work for Target to the public. Rot in hell Target!
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.
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’ve been with target for 2 months now, and this is what I’ve gotten so far. I work as cart attendant and rarely as cashier. I love being outside doing carts(if it wasn’t so hot out). But every time i get one side caught up and the other side is completely empty, our LOD asks me to cover a couple of breaks. So when i’m done with that and i go back out to do carts, 5 minutes into it, i get a call on the walkie saying “cart attendant, we have no carts on blue side”. and I can’t say anything back to them except “that’s clear”. It’s like they’re completely oblivious as to why they have none. That, and now they have me come in from 1-5pm almost everyday except Sunday(i close), so from 8am-1pm no one is getting carts. SO when i come in, we have none and i get a “talking to” that i need to start hustling to get the carts in.
My two supervisors, who are the worst people ever, can never be found on the front lanes like they have to be.
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.
