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

The “Fabulous” Target Life

I am of course an hourly employee, not a fancy team lead or ETL. Although I’m confidant I can do the job of both. Oh wait, I do my TL’s job. Do I get paid for it? Of course not.  Does anyone show me any appreciation? Hell No.  I actually loved this job, okay I semi-enjoyed it when I first started over a year and a half ago.  Now I’d much rather stay home and cry than go to work.  My team lead is team lead in two departments, and has absolutely no idea what he/she is supposed to do in Food Ave.  He/She has been team lead for over a year and just recently was forced to begin working in FA after a significant amount of complaining and a few crying sessions on my teams part.  He/She expects me to do everything for him/her, but only gave me a 12 cent raise, the lowest in my department this year.  Seriously!? How can someone who never works with me give me a raise and a review?  He/She said I was rude to guests.  Of all the people in my department, I am actually the only one who has never been rude to a guest, no matter how difficult that may be.  And he/she cut my hours and gave more hours to two newer employees.  This job has become a joke.  I cannot wait until I can submit my two weeks.

This site is probably going to keep me sane and from quitting! Thanks for the great vent session!

    Is your TL's name either Pat or Chris? Or Jaime or Jesse? 😉

    Believe me once I get another job she's on her own. And no. None of those names

      From what i was told, Target makes the TL/GSTL/LOD/etc. put something negative in your review, so you don't rank "perfect" on their papers. I got mine this year and the GSTL (whom i actually like working with) told me i had Call out problems. My response was, "oh, that one call out i did this whole year. I guess that is a problem i need to fix" of course in a sarcastic tone. They will pick the smallest fault and turn it into a big issue. It sucks.
