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

June 21, 2015 - Unrealistic expectations

Unfair and Unrealistic

I was hired on as an unloader and flow TM  2 years ago, 12 hours a week for $8.50 an hour. I single handedly shorted the unload time from nearly 1.5 hours to 50 minutes. All this on 1800-2500 piece trucks, never rotated in truck for another person or was a no call no show. Soon after I was getting almost 35 hours a week steadily. I was praised in my annual review but received an inconsistantly effective because I had only been there 8 months. This resulted in a 18¢ wage increase. That is complete shit, but I stayed. Finally got told by my STL that they would prep me for a Team Lead interview. This consisted of a piece of paper and cramming information for 1 day before I had to interview with my DISTRICT TEAM LEAD… Nailed the interview regardless, my only picks were to be a Backroom TL or a Guest Service TL. If you’ve ever worked at target you’d know these are the two shitiest position you could hold. Both are filled with unreasonable expectations and unfair treatment. I chose backroom because I do not enjoy working with guests. I was plugged into an awful environment that had been neglected since the store opened and I had little training. I was expected to excel with a Team of 4 ( 100 hours to split between them) and an insufferable workload. It was a losing situation, although I didn’t make it perfect. I did improve it beyond what another in my position could do. Not a single day was a given a “good job” or “do you need help?”. Constant harassment and belittlement, I kept on trucking. My annual review comes up and again I get an inconsistantly ineffective, I did show emotion and pleaded for reason at this point, I was only denied and recived another unbearable raise. I make $13.13 and work harder than any 3 people combined. I know almost every aspect of the store and work over 40 hours a week. It’s the only way I can come out even and tolerate the stress of this aggravating job. As of 2 weeks ago I am now the Flow TL (babysitter) and it’s no easier. I make no headway it seems, I improve processes and increase production but am told I’m not doing enough. It’s stressful and depressing to know that no matter how hard I work I will still make less than those who do little to nothing and are praised for sucking the dicks of ETLs STLs and DTLs. I fucking hate failing like failure knowing I am doing great, just write me a damn vibe card at least…. Thanks for letting me rant and thank this site for letting me know there are others who feel this way.

    This rant was hard for me to follow so I only read about 1/3 of it. I hit "like" anyway because it sounded like you didn't like target or your situation!!

      LOL how was this hard to follow? Sure it could've been spaced out more paragraph break wise but at least there's proper grammar and such For the most part.
