the real issue with target by a possible current employee
so after stumbling upon this website and reading what you feel and go figure I see a lot of underlined themes. shitty pay, incompetent management that don’t belong in retail, shitty co workers & favoritism, piss poor policies, there is so many things wrong with the company yes but at your former store level there I feel there is one big issue…
unfortunately retail has been my life. from first job on Its just what I’ve done. This being said I maybe or may not have been a TL with that company for a few years, I stick with it because its paycheck and close to home. it’s a job. I don’t necessarily have personal “brand loyalty” to the store, if I was given a job close to home with similar pay I may take it. I come in do my job and go home. in any job if you don’t expect to be let go eventually you’re stupid. I know eventually if need be because I make to much compared to the other workers they would cut me lose on some bullshit (why pay some one 20 a hour 40 hours a week when you can pay two people 10) I think what you guys fail to see that the biggest issue is the team members. there are three categories people will fall into for my rant 1 people who are not liked (sorry its life not everyone will like you and unfortunately you may get fired due to this) 2 exceptions sometimes things just happen that shouldn’t, honest and true some people just get the short end of the stick I’m sorry but I also feel these are few and far betweenbut, there has been times where I had to keep quiet because I didn’t nearly agree what the bosses decided. and 3 who I’ll be focusing on bad workers. yeah for 8 an hour you get a high school kid who doesn’t care about his job… you try to get him to work hard. I understand I had the same mentality when I was 15 but you guys are the laziest bunch of people I have ever met. yeah both sides of the coin bad management.. poor leaders make life hard. I wont argue with you on that. I have dealt/still deal with a few that are about as smart as a monkey trying to screw a coconut. but if you have worked in retail for more than a day in your life I am sure you can agree with me on this; we all knew who were and were not performers. some of your peers are just straight up toxic.
I’m going to go out on a limb here an say that 75% of people fired deserve it (3 out of 4 of you just sucked) 20% were not liked and 5% are cases where everyone is like what the hell did they let that person go for
first hours. its non union, they have pretty much free range to do whatever they want. If you can’t understand why they were cutting your personal hours and giving someone else in the same job more then you’re dumb, that person either out works you or can play the game better, if you don’t understand the game or don’t want to play it and think you can get ahead you’re already done. second yeah everyday is an uphill battle with immense workload and left over stuff from the shift before but honestly tell me a time where you didn’t F off when you had the chance. the second you had the opportunity to slack you took it. you sucked just like the rest but then complained when you got caught or were forced to stay late to complete the work. people complain about staying late, you think any one wants to stay late? but how many times instead of doing the correct thing in whatever situation you either stretched out your time didn’t do it “up to standard” I watched you guys day in and day out stand around and talk, not working at all because you’re getting away with it. when confronted with the logic of the situation you think I am a douche bag?? lets talk about performance when I can work 6 items to your one there is an issue. if you idiots used your brain once you could have worked half as hard got twice the amount of work done. if you hired a person to paint the inside of your home and they worked at the same speed you’d be irate and completely unhappy, and on top of that everytime you came into the room the check on them they were not working? come on. but yet you’ll come into work and any chance you get you’ll f off
