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.
I used to be a Target customer with the Red card – and now I am paying for it. Literally.
I signed up for the Red Card several years ago – because I liked shopping at Target. Then, I converted it to “general credit card” type (not just for Target). I paid my bill on time, never missed a payment – until… I got in an accident. I was on disability for seven months. I could not work, and I could not pay my bills. When I talked to customer service, they refused to accept payments I offered, saying the payments have to be larger…
Long story short, now they are after me, guns – a blazing. They levied my accounts- twice. I understand that I owe money, but their credit service, like their customer service, sucks. There is no talking to them – they want what they want when they want it. Period. They do not care about their customers, past or present. All they care about is money.
I do sincerely hope Target goes out of business.
every day i walk into target, i wonder why i’m still working there. … and then i open my wallet.
most of the crap i rant about is kinda disorganized, so here’s a little about me to help you understand what’s going on: i’m what the gstl likes to call “talented” meaning i am cross trained in a few areas. what ever they want. yippee.
today i was so pissed off and disgusted with myself that i threw up half way during my shift. this happens like every week or so.
I started working for target on the 5th of November. This is my very first job. I really did not need a job but I needed the experience. I am studying to become a Registered Nurse and later a CRNA. My first day was great because I had 2 wonderful ladies training me. However, the other 2 are just plain HORRIBLE. They are rude and look at me like I don’t know a thing. The 2 wonderful women that trained me were impressed as how fast I learned everything because of the fact that I never in my life cashiered. Anyway, those two are just plain rude and evil. They talk about employees that work under them like they’re worthless and scum.
I’m fairly new to the cash register… The holidays are coming up and I really need some advice on what it’s like to work as a cashier during the holidays. I know it’s going to be super crowded.Does that mean that time will go by fast since everyone is going to be at the registers? How many cashiers do they hire? Also, I’m scared that my conversions are going to go down cause I know the computer is going to prompt us like crazy…also the rude guests? How do I deal with them?
Just any advice you all can offer to me to make sure I don’t blow it?
My 90 day eval is coming up next week I’m so nervous. I dealt with a rude customer a while ago which really upset me and they knew that…afraid they won’t wanna keep me around.I’m a cashier and I’ve managed to get 5 red cards in the course of 3 months. I’m not exactly sure what my conversion is. Anyways, what do I expect at a 90 day evaluation? I’m so nervous! I really wanna be cross trained! How can I achieve that?!
Target is launching it’s wannabe iTunes, Netflix mashup Target Ticket which is like a VUDU site where you can buy movies and shit and have a digital copy. Well sure, great Target you’re catching up with the 2010’s. But now it’ll be our fucking job to push target ticket.
I work electronics, and though I prefer electronics than being fucking sales floor having to clean up after a dumb cunt’s kids at the toys are because she wont control them, working electronics is getting to my fucking nerves as well.
Here I am after reading a shit load of posts about how all these other people hate target and I thought, man I would love to entertain the social media with my story of Tarjay as well.
I started a year ago in July. I really didn’t need a job but my mom kept nagging me to get one. I got hired right away. I was working after 2 weeks. I had an open availability due to summer break therefore I worked whatever the hell they wanted me to work. I wasn’t allowed to work past 9:45 EXACTLY because I was considered a minor. Who the hell gets scheduled to work to 9:45? Just another way for to Target to get around state laws.
I worked for Target for about a month before I got canned a couple of days ago; and I’m not even depressed that about it. It was a nice experience at first, but after a while it just became ridiculous and I found myself disgusted. I had heard stories that Wal-Mart treated their employees like crap, but Target has taken that crown.
When I applied to Target, I was supposed to be interviewed for a Hardlines position. The ETL I interviewed with seemed pretty excited to have me, but I think that excitement quickly faded when he realized that I actually posed some kind of threat to his job (I’m a college graduate and I grew up around a family business, so I wasn’t a spring chicken). He actually at one point looked me dead in the face and said, “I better be careful, or I just might lose my job to you”. At first I took that as a compliment, thinking that he actually appreciated my prowess and my desire to learn. NOPE! After my drug test and background check came back, HR called me and said that they could not offer me a position in Hardlines, but rather a position in Softlines. This should have sent up a huge red flag for me, but instead I brushed it off and accepted the job anyway. Target’s little anti-union video should have been my second red flag, but again, I dismissed and ignored it.
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.
