    I regret getting a job at this hellhole

    I’m a minor, just turned 17 a few weeks ago, and I recently made the mistake of getting a job of Target. I was warned not to work here but my dumbass did anyways, lesson learned. I thought I loved Target but holy fuck the moment I started working here I realised how shitty this place is. The first thing I noticed was how everyone else who works there is a lazy sack of shit, they do absolutely nothing but drink their Starbucks and hangout. I actually put effort into my work but still the people who do buttfuck nothing are praised more than I am. I have only met like three nice workers, the rest of the people are assholes. I’ve gotten dirty looks from random fuckers who I don’t even know, for absolutely no reason too. I mind my own business and just do my work and then get the hell out, but for some reason everyone there just has such a shitty attitude and give me their attitude for no reason. Nobody does shit here, leaving piles of work for me (and maybe like two other people who actually do stuff) to complete, especially reshop. The idiots who work at guest service just hang out the entire time, or they all go on break at the same time and leave the desk empty with a line of guests. I’ve found broken products and rotten groceries in the bins for reshop, which just brings me to my point about how disgusting this store is. There’s always nasty spills on the floor that nobody cares to clean up. The white floors of Target really bring out how gross the store is, if you look in the corners or where the floor meets the wall, you can see the brown gunk growing in this dirty ass store. Also the break room is always left a mess, every table has crumbs or food on it, the sink is nasty, and the floor is covered in food and stains. I fucking hate Target. And maybe this is just me, because I’m not sure if most places do this, but their 90 day rule is BULLSHIT. I am a music student with unorganised directors, I always have shit coming up or schedule changes but I can’t fucking change my availability. So I’m assuming I’ll be let go of at the end of the year or sooner (I was hired to work seasonal), despite actually putting care and effort into my work. I already had to leave my shift early once because I threw up in the bathroom, they seemed nice about it in the moment but I’m sure this will have some sort of negative effect on my reputation there. The hours and shifts at Target are bullshit, especially as someone in school, I don’t have the time or energy to spend my entire fucking day at Target. If the 90 day rule shit wasn’t a thing, everything would probably work out fine, but fuck attendance and fuck Target. I hope they let me go so I can work somewhere better, the sad part is that it hasn’t even been a month and I’m already fed up with this shit.

    Finally fucking fed up

    Lets start from the beginning, shall we?

    Background

    So I started working at Target 1516 of July of 2018 in Softlines. At first it was great; I made a decent amount of friends, the management was laid back and I was getting above minimum wage. I left for LOA in September for school and returned for Black Friday.  Even though I’m softlines, they put me on register all day because they “double scheduled” me. It was my third time working register and the experience was awful. That should’ve been the first warning sign.

    I feel like a kleenex.

    Ok so here’s my story. I worked the overnight shift during a supremely busy Christmas season at a store that was very busy to begin with. I will tell you guys this right away: never work overnights at target. If you think the day shift is bad, you haven’t seen anything. Several people I worked with had already filed workers comp for RSI injuries sustained while working.

    My job was reshop. Every single day, that’s all I did. Usually just me, occasionally they threw me a helper. I’ll spoil the ending, after the Christmas season was over, I got pinkslipped for not doing it fast enough. Maybe I was slow? I don’t know for a good two months my TLs said I was doing just fine. Then come January, suddenly sorting and pushing 25-30 (50+ during the entire week after Christmas) entire, mostly unsorted carts of reshop (with up to three full carts of dvds when sorting was over and done with) over the course of the night wasn’t good enough. They didn’t give me a good solid number or time frame for when I should have been done. At one point we actually had a conversation where my TL told me “It shouldn’t take all night to put away 17 carts”, to which I had point out they’d delivered 8 more while I was working.  I don’t know, am I really that slow? Should I really have been averaging less than 10 minutes per cart? It’s not like I had anyone else to compare my performance to, or a hard number goal to work towards.  But I know I wasn’t being lazy, at the very least.
