Hired as a seasonal employee I took the role of a Human Resource Team Member. Being told how good I’ve been doing – doing the stupid 3-11 shifts (including new years, christmas eve, and thanksgiving) because my Team Leader said we all have to start somewhere. It was so horrible! Not only do you have to do your own specific job in human resources for some idiotic reason we also have to give over 100 team members their equipment, sign it out for them, go after them for punch corrections, post schedules while everyone’s on you telling you to hurry, having the phone ring ring ring and having to buzz people in the god damn man trap, psssttt that was a piece of cake for just $8.75/hr.
Work the register, they said. it will be easy, they said. Now, I dont know when I was pronounced the Queen of Target, but apparently I am, and guest think so as well. There must have been a sign on me that said “I make the Fucking Sales Prices for Target, come to me”…..guest complain and get upset all the time when they realize their item isnt the price they thought it was..TOUGH FUCKING SHIT, MAN UP! I dont care if you found the fucking pillow in the clearance section, the machine says its not on clearance!
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’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!
So I have been over looked again for a TL spot in my store and I getting sick of it. It seems as if your not white then your not rite in my store. There is only one black TL and ETL in my whole store they should say something. I have been at my store for 1year and 7months and still not spot for me. Its always well you need more work, or the time is not rite and last my favorite you need to be more global. WTF I work in Electronics I get guest that come in talk to my TL’s and ETL’s and write to district about me but still nothing and this happens on a all the time bases. I don’t get how much work I have to do. They treat me like a Slave once again I guess that’s ok becuz I’m BLACK, I’m way under paid and My AAR scores alone are the best in my region. What more do you need so weak ass RedCards no body wants? I’m so sick of this place. I get store Mangers for different company’s that come to my store that beg me to leave mine and be a Manger at theirs. Why in the HELL do I said No? Maybe becuz I feel like I can help the team out so they can feel better about what they do or maybe I’m slow. Idk anymore I just want what is supposed to happen when for show hard work for a store that’s HATES BLACKS. So should I just switch stores and see what happens? or Stay and get Over Looked Again? or Say Skip It and Leave? what you guys think?
