Target Sucks - We Hate Target and We Know We're Not Alone.

Target and the proper Covid-19 Guidelines

Apologies if the Google preview is misleading.  I’m paranoid about it, as well as my sarcasm.

I worked for a location that was getting worse with each year.  Also, I have years of experience working there, but they’re gonna reach Amazon levels of bad soon.

I noticed over time that Target is deciding not to follow state guidelines anymore.  The store capacity shrank for the first part of Covid.  People stood outside and we called them in.  Magically, the capacity increased by a fair margin, despite restrictions for the area pretty much staying in place.  I texted someone who knew what happened.  They said the capacity should be ~1/3rd lower than it’s currently at.  Yes, I did look at the store capacity sheet and the store capacities are pretty much outright lies for most, if not all of them that I saw.  Target lifted the restrictions on some *beverage-related* parts of the store being on an “after you shop” basis.  We still have the signs saying not to drink or eat in the store and state restricted guidelines on it posted.

Our state requires masks, but they’re also too soft to get people to wear masks.  Not like our TPS/TSS even looks like they could do anything about it.  They neutered and defanged them, but they also lowered the bar on hiring for TPS/TSS these recent years.   People come in without masks, refuse masks given to them, take their masks down whenever they speak, etc.  The amount of bending backwards for the customer is getting catatonic.

I’m frustrated that my life was on the line daily (got my shot and it’s been past the 2 weeks).  Target execs got $1k+.  Meanwhile Target was praised for their “lol here’s $500, taxed, btw we’re just gonna ignore the restrictions”.

That’s all I have for Covid-19 guideline issues. I want to keep most of my experiences for later for a number of reasons I wish not to disclose for now.

PS: Bad at Tags, please forgive me.

    Well unfortunately they don't give two fucks about the safety of you or others all care about is money. If they did then you wouldn't feel your safety is at risk.

      It's not as if I don't know that information already, but venting about such issues does help the mental strain I've felt because of them. That's why I really want the beginning of the union stuff happening at Amazon (hopefully getting turned into a movement) starts affecting other major retail chains. We can't trust companies to do the right thing.

    If your life was actually on the line you wouldn't be able to work.

      I'm going to disagree with you on that point. Just because I was safe, does not mean that for the past year I didn't live in fear of suddenly waking up with potential Covid-19 symptoms. The disease is deadly and because I had to work in retail, around a lot of other people that come into the store daily, my life could've ended had there been one slip-up at any point. Would it be immediate? No, but considering how crippling Covid-19 can potentially be, it's still very worrisome. That's not even mentioning the people that were asymptomatic that are experiencing covid long hauler symptoms. I have a medical condition that at times won't let me breathe properly, so I know what it's like to not be able to breathe (yes, I still always wear a mask at work and whenever I go out), and I seriously could not imagine what it's like for the people that got such crippling symptoms because they're working in the same type of place (or even worse) as me. Did they live? Sure, but their quality of life will be seriously reduced.
      Secondly, that seems like an odd point to take. People put their life on the line daily for deadly professions. Logging workers, roofers, pilots, etc. To put one's life on the line isn't that they're already hospitalized after an accident occurred and they have a chance of dying, it's to put yourself at risk of such a thing happening and the risk of the retail worker this past year (and potentially the year going forward) I'd say was (and is still) pretty high.

    Target doesnt give a flying **** about covid precautions. I never once saw anyone tell a customer (**** the Tarsh*t lingo, I refuse to call them a guest) to put on or pull up their mask.
