It’s summer down here in Southern California. Temperatures are well within the 95’s. On good days it’s around 84-85. I can tell you right now this is a rant so rant [ON]
Oh target where do I even start with this awful hatrid. It is now to the point where I dread work and my 50 cent raise above minimum wage doesn’t do jack squat anymore. It all starts when I walk into the office before my shift to get a locker. I open one and it’s full of tuperware, I open another and it has a lunch box. Really?? Is it THAT hard you can’t possibly dig out a quarter and lock your fucking locker? There is a goddammed fridge for a reason also. I then hang up my jacket, which there really is no point because by the end of my shift its always on the floor anyways knocked off by employees who leave it there. I then attempt to punch in and let it beep at me for five hours and then walk onto the floor as cashier. I check to see what lane I’m on and set up my register with the 2 ten dollar bills they give you which run out after one “guest”. I hang my flimsy ass bags that never fail to stick together and end up all over the floor. Before I even have a chance to turn on my lane light I already have a line of people waiting to be checked out screaming “Are you open???” understaffed again I see. I mumble yes, and they start to unload their cart with mulitple of the same item that they will try and use their fake fraudulent $20 dollar off coupons for razors that don’t even match their item.
I wonder why people “dislike” comments about how much Target sucks. I thought this was an ihatetarget site. Why do people argue with a fellow hater when that hater states what they hate? I read replies to posts such as, “It’s your fucking job to make lattes for guests! Stop bitching and just do your job!” I find this to be wildly ironic, not just because this IS a website specifically designed to complain about our shitty jobs, but because it sounds so VERY TARGETISH!!!!! Typical fucking assbackwards tards that have their heads so far up their fucking poop shoots they don’t even know where they are or whatthefuck is going on! YOU ARE ON www.ihatetarget.net you Target re-fucking-jects!!!
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.
So a week ago i was playing basketball at my local gym. I injured myself on this one play and my heel hurt. I went to the doctor and found out i had inflamed the bottom of my achilles tendon. I got a note from my doctor for work, and i thought i was exempt, and had all the time i needed to recover. I went in to target and gave my note to my hr team lead. I had already spoken to my supervising tl, and i thought all was well.
a week later i felt well enough to come back to work and i had recovered. I walk into target and go up to the hr team member and say that i can come back and work now. She says to talk to our Stl who does nothing but stay in her office all day and paint her nails or some shit like that. She says that i had 3 no-call no-shows over that period which i was injured and had a note for it. She then goes on to tell me that i am terminated.
Damn it, they’re playing dumb with my availability again, trying to make me come in during times that I can’t. I put in my fall semester availability on Saturday, even after I had a talk with my ETL about trying to have my work hours coincide with my schedule as well as my career pursuits. I’m pretty sure he just spaced on the whole thing and never got around to accepting it in the system. That allowed my team leader to see it first, and she flat out denied it and made me submit a new one today. The only problem is, it won’t be applied until the week after I need it to start. I brought this up to my ETL, but you know how that goes. Now I’m going to have to fight HR for 2 weeks, trying to get them to schedule me for times that I can actually work. I’ll be calling out and getting people to cover my shifts. My attendance sucks and it’s a wonder I still have a job. I guess it’s because when I’m there, you can actually tell. I really don’t care about attendance, and as you know, I really don’t care for this job. This piece of shit is all I have to fund my education.
I swear when I ask an ETL for help, I feel like Grandpa Joe when Willy Wonka yelled at him. “YOU GET NOTHING!! YOU LOSE! GOOD DAY SIR!!”
OK. So by now everyone knows that the Neiman Marcus/Target coupling was an epic fail.
At least corporate got smart and dumped the ugly ass stuff when it was at 70% off and didn’t go 90%.
Of course if you bought it you can’t return it, but hey at least you can brag you bought your daughter the ugliest bicycle on the planet for $150 instead of $400. (She’d probably be less mortified and teased on a banana seat.)
The question is, how will this multi-million dollar flop hurt employees?
At least where I am they didn’t salvage the stuff by “best practice” (english: throw out). So you will probably see some homeless woman running around in a designer dress and local drunk man in a Navy blazer. LOL.
Thoughts, fears, tales to tell already?
