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

Was moved from hardlines to cashier

I’m not gonna lie, I hate hardlines so being primarily a cashier now, I’m not complaining. I’ve been at this store for a year now and on occasion I’d get a cashier shift either picking it up or would spontaneously be scheduled for it. What DOES suck is the circumstances under which they moved me. IDK whether it’s luck or I have a way with words, but over the last 5 weeks I’ve been getting redcards like crazy; like I was told last week alone I got 10 and the week Before I got 14. I was actually talked about and praised in an ETL meeting surprisingly enough and one of my ETL’s (Whose insanely hot btw) she calls me “The redcard king.” So what happens when my luck runs out and I’m back to getting 1 or 2 a week, or none at all. Will they move me back to hardlines or even worse say “Ok he lost his drive we don’t need him” and terminate me all together. It’s just annoying cuz now I feel pressured to give out these fucking cards and I’m being praised for what is sheer dumb luck. I’ve gotten my ass kissed more time in the last month than I ever did my year of hardlines. It just goes to show where the Team Leads priorities are.

    Only fools get a RedCards. Brainless people try to promote them. You have zero incentive to try and get people to sign up for RedCards, don't be bullied by management! Nothing rubs guest/customers the wrong way than to be bombard by RedCard harassment. If someone wanted a RedCard they would ask for it, they don't need to be harassed for it!

    I would let the people you know that you sign up, they can pay their bill off instantly at guest services. Target likes red cards because they get a % of the interest td charges people. However since all they care about is sign ups, direct them to guest services to pay off their bill instantly if you aren't allowed to help them pay it off at your register
